That is why you don't get Russians

Let's not kid ourselves, however. I admit i have some bias against certain Russian players. I thought Yashin was a money grubbing bum that only tried hard when he wanted to, but for every Russian disappointment I am sure there are others from other countries that are just as bad (Redden, Gomez)
Someone mentioned Avery on here. You know, a lot of people dislike Avery, but I think if he doesn't overdo it he can be a really effective hockey player. What Avery said about Elisha Cuthbert was nasty and rude, but I didn't think it warranted more attention than let's say Duncan Keith taking a flying elbow at Daniel Sedin's head, or Big Bert ending Steve Moore's career.
this is why i shaked my head at those Canuck fans that cheered on the fLames to make the playoffs... that fan base is stupid as f thats the fan base that still to this day are convinced Alberts faked going down for a call on hit on that McGrattan hit that sent him to retirement.
I hated that fan base since 04 and will forever hate them. they have such a huge inferiority complex about our team and the city/province. I hope we dispose of these losers quickly.
