For the life of me, I could not figure out why he was on the team other than hype. Everytime I saw him with the puck, he was easily pushed off it.

You could always favour a draconian xenophobic system like the Swedes and the CFL.

Sheifle did fuck all, Rattie did nothing and Huberdeau was weak. The coaching was terrible as well. He should have had those kids revved up but he didn't.
As for the US they have been gaining round for 20 years. They are in the conversation as one of the best teams in the world. They have always done well at the U 18 tourneys even when Canada was ripping off four straight gold medals. The reality is if Canada had ANY goaltending in 2010 and 2011 they would have had 6 golds in a row.
The US is good, the Swedes are good, the Russians , Finns and Czechs are pretty good. As for the men I still believe Canada is the best and I know they have way more depth than any country. Goaltending seems to be a real weak spot in this country right now though and it may very well cost Canada in Sochi.
