Russian fans are adamant why Mikhaylov was barely used, at least he could have changed something this I agree. Also, it seems clear to me Russia's game depends highly on Volkov-Kliuka duo, if one of them starts to under perform Russia looks kinda lost. Poletaev had a good game however scoring 20 points
Also, people are roasting Sammelvuo for his roster choices basically they are saying there wasn't a complete distinction who was a starter vs who was playing as reserve. And this affected the chemistry with the binders. Kobzar's setting was not nearly as convincing compared to VNL for example.
