I was fortunate to watch hockey in Russia for several years while living there. They are all about finesse yester-year. I guess things have changed. I remember going to the pro games and fans were dead quiet and it was weird. You could hear the when the players talked while skating. Began my love for hockey.

Check the two kids down at the bottom in yellow. The one closest to the camera is tagging ol boy and the guy he’s with doesn’t want any part of it. He’s probably the same as the guy we played on the same team with in pee wee football that was twice as big at that age and no one wanted to go against him in tackling drills. It’s sort of like reading in class when we were little where you counted ahead to see what paragraph you’d have so you could practice. In this case you count down your line and the other line to see if you’re getting tackled by/fighting Boras.

When you go to a fight and a hockey game breaks out.

The irony is - the Soviet/European hockey style was all about finesse, while North American hockey was rough and physical. I guess a generation later, things have changed.

And when things change there, they really change. A couple of decades or so ago, the idea of a "Great White Hope" was a common phrase in boxing and other fighting pursuits, whereas today you have Eastern European dudes over here wrecking $hit left and right.

They know they're destined for the NHL, if good. They need to learn this bull shite.

Rockum - Sockum Russians! LOL They are taught and coached at an early age to fight so when things don't go their way they stand up and defend themselves.

Word of caution to the young men on this site if you think you want to tangle with some random guy with a Russian accent because he may have cut in line at you favorite coffee shop. He has probably been practice fighting like this as a child and whipping arse as a young man while you were getting participation trophies. Stay away from him.

Meanwhile we're over here teaching our kids to talk about our feelings. And cry like bitches when things don't go their way.
