Russia Wins Karjala Cup

Russia won the annual Karjala Tournament today on goal differential beating the Czech Republic 4-1 in their tournament finale. Lightning prospect forward Anton But did not appear in the tournament for Russia after making the initial roster for the team. Blueliner Andreas Holmqvist finished tied with center Rickard Wallin for Team Sweden's lead in points with 1 goal and 3 points in 3 games. Sweden finished second in the tournament, losing the tiebreaker to the Russians on goal differential.

Controversial question of the day: given how much David Schneider has struggled early in the season for Norfolk, do you think the Lightning regret not making more of a pitch for Holmqvist who, although he has his shortcomings, is recognized as one of the better power play quarterbacks in the Elitserien today?
