Sweden is in trouble now. A s***ty missed icing call has put them down 2-0.
I'm also kind of in teh same boat as you. I'm not a fan of Cameron so if they lose I will not be as crushed as usual especially because they cut the kid that had the best camp. I do however want them to win, I am just not following it as closely as usual
So much for my Sweden prediction. It seemed to me like there were a few blown calls going against the Swedes during the game. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought the 3rd goal by the Russians (the game tying goal) was knocked down with a high stick and then played by them. It's also possible that IIHF rules are different there, and I'm just in the dark on this one.
The way you described your stance is probably more accurate for me as well. Watching the game, I couldn't help but cheer for Canada. I'm not a fan of Cameron either. If you ask me, he's made some suspect decisions. He played a well-coached game yesterday, but I think that cutting Sheahan and playing Roy in the first place were mistakes. While Cizikas has certainly earned his spot, I think Sheahan could have definitely replaced someone like Ashton.
“You tell me how often it happens when a guy put up two points, has a good game, and next thing you know he sits for 10 games,” Kindl said. “But that’s in the past and I don’t want have that in my mind. I’m just excited for this new camp."
“I always tried to have confidence when I wasn’t playing. It wasn’t easy for me. You may think you played a good game and you sit down for the next 10 (games) and keep going back and forth, but all that is in the past and I’m just looking forward to a new challenge.”
