Going to need lot of luck to beat USA tomorrow (or Jagr going oldschool and Krejci going full playoffs mode Krejci).

I don't think we can keep up with them in skating at all, so they will probably win most of the challenges. Pavelec is looking shaky too and our defense is still making lots of lapses. We'll probably also hit more posts than goals againt too. Normally I would be confident playing USA, but not this time.

And of course our coach is still a whoreson.

I agree the quality of players are better but as a whole you know very well we have better skaters up front. Where you excel is the back end with Doughty and Boumeester. Plus the fact that you guys still haven't figured out your front lines is scary. Plus Crosby has completely disappeared.

Regardless Canada's forwards are way better than the US. Doesn't come down to who's goaltender is hotter, comes down to Canada choking or the US playing above there talent level or Quick going crazy. Compare that roster player to player, it's not even close.

Doesn't that go hand in hand?
Also considering that the bigger ice favors skill goaltending is paramount. This more than any Olympics a goalie has to steal games.
And Canada will definitely blame the goalie if they don't succeed. I think Canada more than any country puts emphasis on this. If you lose, it's Luongo's and Price's fault. Look how vancouver treats Luongo now? He won a gold for christ's sakes. Stole the gold for Canada.

We're destroying the Czechs while going half speed. Were up 5-1, now it's 5-2.

Russia's out after losing 3-1 to Finland.

Everyone is just waiting to be destroyed by Sweden. I am just mad that Finland and Sweden got drawn to play in the semifinals. Would have loved another final against them like in 06.
