Canada's performance against Russia in the past few World Juniors tournaments leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, every year the roster is completely turned over and there isn't any reason to believe that trend has to continue. Nonetheless, the Russian's still have the same head coach in Valeri Bragin that has kept the Russians so damn competitive over the past half decade.
The Russians have forsaken their stereotypical enigmatic roster, and have opted for a blue collar, lunch pail, physical lineup that Hockey Canada would be proud to dress. Canada will have its first true test of the tournament against its historical and greatest rival.

Here comes your weekly chance to skip out on doing anything work related on Monday mornings - it's the mailbag. As always, you guys drive this segment, and I need your questions to make it work. If you've got a question you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Sit back, grab a coffee, and put off any actual work items that you have to do - it's time to learn something.

This is the grind time, ladies and gents. We know the target—sedated for McDavid. The Edmonton Oilers sent a clear message to the fanbase with the David Perron trade: The winning starts next season (promise) (probably)!

Laurent Brossoit is having a helluva season in Oklahoma City, there's no doubt about it. The former Edmonton Oil King is emerging as a legit prospect—despite the lack of draft pedigree—and the Oilers may have found a goalie.
