I think the Bruins are majority USA players and then you have the Oilers who have like 5 guys who aren't Canuckleheads.

Hell, Russia and Finland aren't even that heavily represented in the NHL anymore. 80% of the league is from Canada, the USA, and Sweden. 95% if you add Russia, Finland, and the Czechs (who historically also gave the NHL their best female player: Jaromir Jagr).


Ya many Russians just stay to play in the KHL these days, the pay isn't quite as good as the NHL but it's up there. Russian goaltending is taking over right now, lots of great young Russian goalies and some of the best players in the NHL are Russian, like I mentioned Tampas two best players are Russian. I'm Russian/Canadian so I got a lot of favorite Russian players


All of the best Russian players are playing in the NHL. They don’t just “decide” to stay in the KHL. Getting to the Show is every hockey players dream, including international players.

Your point about Russian goaltending becoming elite in the league is about the only accurate statement you’ve made. It makes sense because only those psychopathic Russians wouldn’t mind standing in front of a piece of frozen rubber blistering towards them at 85+ MPH.

How many members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are from Florida?
How many members of the New Orleans Saints are from Louisiana?

Found it really odd, when last fall : the provincial Gubmint™ ordered a committee, to figure-out how to get more kids into Hockey™.

The cost has always been a barrier to lower-income families.

Were you this pearl-cluchy the last time they won? Or the time before that? They've won it three times, which do you have a problem with, or us it just all for whatever lame-ass reason?

I bet you whined when Manon Rheaume goaltended, too


I love it when the chicks dig sports. My wife does to a point. She doesn't know Hockey like you do. Being a former Nashville kid, I am a Predator fan. We had minor league Hockey when I lived in Nashville as a kid and could get tickets right on the glass cheap and I learned to love Hockey.

Not many and those two states put out a lot of NFL talent.

Isn't it just good diplomacy; When people away or at home, enjoy eachothers national anthem with respect?

I want to say are they those who are pushing this stuff into sports trying to suggest that hockey is to white? to European?

Isn't strange how they stopped suggesting that basketball was to white or had to many white players after a few years? but this whole argument on the woke side doesn't help their narrative.

Russia cant play hockey on ice hockey because Russians have to many Russian players?
