I'd say that's a pretty formidable team. Wish I could be at every game.

I'm really digging those Team Russia jerseys.

I like the lettering of the Russian government "Rosoboronexport" ad, oddly enough.

Where is Artem Chubarov? Injured? He must have been a candidate for the team (and geez, the Canucks could use him right about now).

Yes, back when the RSL playoffs were still going on, it was reported that Artem Chubarov was bowing out of the World Championships because of an injury-- I believe to his elbow.
