01/10/2011 2011 WJC: Retrospect of Team Russia

The 2011 WJC Gold Medal has been an unexpected but pleasant achievement for all of Team Russia’s fans or admirers. The Motherland capture its first triumph after an eight-year draught in which most of times the teams didn’t feature enough leadership and were many times either outplayed by Canadians, like 2005 or 2006 editions, or simply having very poor performances due to multiple factors, like in 2010.

12/26/2010 2011 WJC: Russia looks to erase mistakes of past and bring a medal home

After last year's highly disappointing sixth place finish, Team Russia is called to rebound back among the elite teams and in 2011 they have quite a good chance to do so. This year the Russians will bring a very talented team with a very good coach, Valery Bragin. If having a very good selection isn't unusual for Russia, having a very good coach, to some extent, is. Last year Vladimir Plyuschev's management left to be desired and Sergei Nemchinov also didn't exactly satisfy with his performances. Bragin, a former RSL head coach for Spartak Moscow, has been highly praised in Russia after the Super Series triumph and many players, especially Maxim Kitsyn (Los Angeles Kings) (LA), have been very vocal through the press about Bragin's impact over the series.
