World Juniors: Why I am Afraid of Team Russia
I’ll be honest, the one singular team that I did not want Team Canada to face is the Russians. Not only did the Russians beat Team Canada in the gold medal game in Buffalo, NY, but they have looked to be the top team in the tournament consistently.
Team Canada has taken an excessive amount of penalties throughout the tournament in each game, many of them stupid and unnecessary penalties, and so far they have managed to not make that into a disaster, but it is a weakness that the Russians WILL exploit.
Team Canada, the country is watching. You have the ability to make your country proud, or to let the pressure collapse you once again, and lose to the Russians.
