Hade Zibanejad varit kanadensare som fixat JVM-guld i fjol, hade han inte blivit stoppad. Den shitstormen av kritik hade Ottawa aldrig tagit

"If Zibanejad was Canadian, he would never have been stopped. That's a shitstorm of criticism Ottawa never would've taken."
In an attempt to hurt Sweden's chances to repeat at the World Junior Championship, Senators management decided to deny struggling 1st rounder Mika Zibanejad the opportunity to go play hockey half a globe away against lesser competition. At least that's the angle the Swedish media is going for.
And don't you Canadians dare to take the biggest locker room this time!
Oh, and Markström never dove.
Per sources, this is exactly how it was handled…
Cold-blooded Bryan, smh.
