As reported in this week’s edition of the Hockey News, the WHA has officially announced that the league will start with 10 franchises and play its first game in December of this year. And to distinguish the league from others, one of those teams will consist entirely of Russian players, based in a Canadian city.
Ok, well let’s stick with the theme and make a guess on the World Cup team for Russia. I was going to do Sweden’s too, but I decided one/customer. So here could be the Russian team for World Cup.
For us hockey lovers who love watching, hearing, and reading about the sport….all of this may give you a long lasting orgasm.

As reported on the TSN website:
“Hopefully, he’ll be ready for the World Cup,” Brodeur tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “If I have a chance to play, I’d love to be able to play with him again.”

What Happened in Game 1 Through Game 41.
The first 41 games have been a battle between Jekyll and Hyde. Some nights the defending Stanley Cup champions take the ice and play a flawless game defeating the likes of the Senators and Flyers. Other nights the Mickey Mouse organization takes the ice losing to teams they should easily beat like the Pittsburgh Penguins. Brodeur and the defense, despite their recent troubles, are on pace to smash their goals against from last year when Brodeur won his first Vezina.
