I wish Canada didn't choke like the buffalo bills with 17 minutes left in the third! But it was a good tourney and the Russians took it home and battled back from 3rd period defecits 3 times to win gold....Can;t say their program is in the shitter now.
Toews is a different player than those guys....I think more complete. He is not as talented offensively as the 3 you mention though. Crosby is on a different level altogether...What he is showing this year is truly amazing. He is a very special talent.
I like the impact style #8 plays and he is a true goal scorer....however I worry that when he loses a bit of his step he is gonna get hurt really really bad.
