Canada's got one more game to gel.
and a tougher opponent at best.

As i predicted, Crosby doesn't do anything, but will when it matters

I can see Tavares being a very key part of this team and I expect him to see him moving to the wing with Sid and Kuntiz sooner rather than later

It still boggles my mind that we left Giroux, Thornton, Eric Staal, James Neal, etc. at home to take Kunitz and Carter (who get gifted top line minutes with Crosby to boot).

We couldn't score against any team that played decent D in 2010 and we decide to take even fewer offensively gifted players this time

The adjustment to big ice must be real.

Seriously though- did you notice how many times 2 Canadian players bumped into each other? Or while cycling/in the offensive zone were within a stick-length from each other. That's likely due to them not aware of how much ice is actually around them.

Don't forget that the European players grew up playing on the large ice. For those who only recently started their NHL careers, they still have spent more time on the large ice surface than NA sized ice.

Meanwhile, Canadian players have little or no experience on international ice surfaces.

It's really apparent watching the Euro teams. They're almost in the perfect spots to receive passes and not be harassed. Canada seemed too eager to engage players on the boards today. I expect that to differ tomorrow against a stronger Austrian team (Grabner hat-trick?!?!)

Watching USA/Slovakia on pvr. Fuck Nike. Could have put a little effort into making the jerseys unique to each country. Looks like I'm watching a training camp scrimmage of Home vs Away.

I also noticed that when Canada was cycling the puck along the boards in the corner, they didnt put enough mustard on the pass, say, to make it around the boards behind the net to the other player. They didn't realize how spread out they ended up.

There are some international-sized ice rinks in the CHL, which is where most Team Canada players are from.

Belleville, for example, has a 200x100 foot ice surface, which is larger than IIHF specifications (60.5x29.5 meters or 198x97 feet). Niagara has an ice surface that is actually smaller than an NHL-regulation ice surface.

Doesn't matter. St.Louis and Duchene can easily fill the void. If anything. A guy like Marty can make players around him much better.

For whatever reason. Babcock and HC have a Hardon for Carter.

Subban and Duchene are also playing tomorrow against Austria.

I know it's hockey, and at the end of the day, anything can happen. But, what is the rule on fighting in the Olympics? Is it a nono because of the type of tournament? I was surprised to see some small pushing and shoving in the can-norway game. I just can't recall the last time I've seen a fight happen in Olympic hockey.
