Russia Is A Team

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
It's early, to be sure, just two games into the five-game round robin. But the Russian win over the Swedes, who started the tournament with a 7-2 handling of Kazakhstan, was illuminating on a number of fronts. It provided the first indication that there is a difference from previous Russian teams, which were marked as much by in-fighting, defections and internal politicking as they were for their considerable talent. "I think right now it's coming back. Any tournament we play, you know guys are concentrating more on winning and bringing back good hockey to the Russian people," Kasparaitis said.
