DIscuss the the World Championship Bronze match between Sweden and Germany and the Gold match between Russia and Czech Republic here.

Europe or North America?

"The IIHF concluded that NHL teams sign too many non-NHL calibre Europeans; that too many Europeans who are potentially of NHL calibre but not yet NHL-ready are signed prematurely; the quality of European-trained NHL players remaining with their European clubs until they are NHL-ready is "vastly superior" to Europeans who spent significant time in the minor leagues or in the Canadian major junior system; and the recruiting of underdeveloped European players is a threat to the quality of the top European leagues and to the European development system because European clubs can't adequately replace the players."

NHL a Tough Sell

Why aren't there Europeans coaching in the NHL?
