#81 Team Canada Shows No Mercy
This week we discuss Canada’s beat down of lesser hockey countries so far at the World Juniors. We look back at the amusing comments by the Swiss head coach a few years ago, knowing his squad had no shot when they faced Canada. We get into the emotional post-game speech this week by Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt, who’s worried about his teammates not seeing a tough season through with full effort. Russ talks about his golf round with Billy Bush. As the year draws to a close, we look at the NHL’s best. By the way, what separates the true elite players from very good players?
