    Wow how good are the Russians, pure poetry in motion. Watching these guys is a pure joy. Love this game. Wish the season was starting next week.

    Very noticeable that there are very few interventions from the referees in the World Chamionships I have seen. Play is fast and very physical but very little whistle blowing. Great example tonight on Free Sports Sweden v Russia. Amazing hockey. Plenty of finishing hits and checks BUT very little whistle.
    Is this down to the extreme skill of players or because referees are not there trying to take centre stage.
    What a difference it makes to the game.
