I played with many Russians in my time in professional hockey. I was always amazed by their skill and skating ability. After being traded to the Vancouver Canucks, during my first practice I was taught a harsh lesson on Russian ability by Pavel Bure and Alexander Mogilny.

Today, the outcome is all that matters.
It doesn't matter if only Drew Doughty and Shea Weber score, as long as Canada wins.
It won't matter if Sidney Crosby is held pointless, as long as Canada wins.
Shots totals won't matter, as long as Canada wins.
It won't matter that through the first 4 games USA has 20 goals and Canada 13, as long as Canada scores more today.
The WIN is all that matters.

Did his Olympic performance increase his trade value?
