      Nothing, DoK.

      I can't believe I got so excited over something as barbaric as hockey.

      We're Canada's bitches when it comes to Olympic hockey.

          You think he realized that and that's why he wrote this:

            I agree, border crossing at the WA/ BC is a pain the wrong places, as is the back and forth mile/ km conversion.Seriously North America, pick one damn standard and stick to it.

                  Also, I think that a certain retired high-ranked officer given a chance would place a hockey stick there. Among other places.

                    Which ones? Those on the south or on the north side of the border?

                      Doktor, what has happened is the NHLers have learned to adapt to the larger ice surface of international hockey...and then introduced the world to the hard nose version of hockey played in the NHL. It's an in your face hard hitting style the Europeans do not play as well.

                      Some make the transition and excel (see Chara, Krecji, Seidenberg and Ericson of my beloved Bruins). Others find a niche but do not become a force like they would in KHL.
                      Peter Forsberg adapted and thrived in the NHL. At his prime, he was the most dominant player in the league.

                      Niklas Lidstrom was for years the best defenseman in NHL. Not sure if it's Red Wings' system or he was really that good. He controled the tempo of the game on both ends.

                      Anze Kopitar, the greatest Slovenian hockey player of all time, has the skills to play European style finesse game but can play the grinding game along the boards just as well.

                      It's always interesting to watch how European NHL players play the international game in the Olympics. At 43 years old, Teemu Selanne had a great game against the Russians. I think the larger ice rewards Teemu since he's probably not that keen on getting hit at 43.

                      I wonder how Patrick Kane likes the international ice. He's probably the smallest player on the team at 5' 11" and 180 lb. Many considered him to be too small to play in the NHL. But don't tell that to Martin St. Louis.
