Yup, they could only afford 1 loss and they wasted that on Team Europe.
Rip USA. Lets go NA!
USA Hockey just needs to give up on whoever they have picking these teams and get someone that understands modern hockey
I also agree NA / Canada would be an amazing game. Hopefully NA advances to the next round as that team is just a blast to watch.
That Sweden/North America OT and game-winner though!
That toe drag was nasty.
That was ridiculous... as was the officiating in that game. Got to admit I'm a bit pissed that it will now require a minor miracle for NA to make it to the next round...
Of all the times in my life I've watched the Russian international team, NEVER have I seen them look anywhere NEAR as garbage as I've seen them play in this tournament. I hope with every fiber of my being that they lose to Finland.
Here's the beauty of a game-winner!
My god is Canada ever boring to watch.
I thought the Europeans were the bore, wanting to play a tight checking game. If they were not so committed to that style all game long, I guarantee you Canada would have been running and gunning.
The Canadians were however willingly playing a defensive style in the 3rd and yes, that was boring.
Still hopping for a miracle but it's not looking good...
Sigh. No more Team NA. Russia will be dismantled easily by Canada, and whoever else will be left by the finals.
I would have liked to see NA too. Russia didn't play that bad in the pre tournament OT loss to Canada. Plus they did beat NA as well. Should be a good game, but still expect Canada to win.
About what I was expecting but still sucks majorly
Murray to Miss Three to Six Weeks with a Broken Hand
I figured it was broken given how distracted he was before being pulled against Russia..
Going to make a shocking prediction, Canada in 2 games
I'm thinking we should either ban Canada or just skip international tournaments and declare them the winner.
Europe has a legit chance if they can play their tight checking game more intensely with some actual scoring intent. When the two played a week or so ago, Europe at moments looked far more dominant. I'll wait to hear how the first game goes before tuning in, could just as easily be another borefest.
Or we could impose a handicap... U-23 TEAM CANADA/NORTH AMERICA!
I watched that one and it was a snoozefest.
Team Europes best weapon is their coach. If Krueger can figure out a way to put Canada on their heels for short periods of time and their goalie can stand on his head, they MIGHT have a chance.
It easy for them and they don't even have all the top players in the lineup. They are so deep in goal now, that the reigning Vezina trophy winner not only hasn't played, he hasn't even dressed.
Got to admit it's funny watching some Pens fans freak out after one preseason game. People don't seem to realize early preseason is a time to let guys play to see how they do, not the lineup that will be on the ice when the seasons starts. Seriously, I think there were four starters from last season on the ice last night
