This team is probably the best team we've iced since 2004-05.herb wrote:Aside from the game against the USA, this has been an incredibly boring tournament for Canada. I couldn't even be bothered to tune into the game against Slovakia, but I see Canada had no problem torching them as well.
Hopefully the gold medal game is a bit more exciting, but of course we have to beat the communist bastards. Fuck you Putin.
They play as a unit, attack with speed, get solid goaltending, and are defensively responsible. The only hotshot out there is Domi, but even he plays the team game, he just likes to dangle and spin more than he'll be able to do in the NHL.
Russia is weaker, I think. But the USA was supposed to be THE team this year.....
Sweden sounds about par for the course from that tournament too.
