10:14 AM ET 02.22 | Toronto Maple Leafs legend and Swedish superstar Mats Sundin is "disgusted" with the "heartless" performance of the Russian men's hockey team in Sochi. In a TSN Radio interview, the Hockey Hall of Fame inductee slammed Russia's performance after its 3-1 quarterfinal loss to Finland that ended their medal hopes on home soil. "I was almost disgusted by their performance when they played Finland," the normally mild-mannered Sundin said. "I look at the Finnish team and they're missing key players. They don't have any of their big stars and now (starter Tuukka Rask) is hurt and the Russian team is stacked with great players and to come out and have that performance they had in the quarterfinals. It was an absolutely heartless performance."

Everyone in Russia and the Ukraine is profoundly shaken about the Kyiv situation, and so should we all.

Lmao! Well I thought Sweden played perfect........



..........for a Canadian win! I'm lovin it, and I feel for the Russians as the guy inch rage of this country is having the team all measured for the proper beheading axe. I am shocked that Latvia could do a better job and be more of a threat with little talent and lots of heart.....oh wait, that's the point of this convo......sorry.
