I'm thinking more...

Franzen - Datsyuk - Jurco

Filppula - Zetterberg - Nyquist

Pulkkinen - Jarnkrok - Tatar

Sheahan - Helm - Mursak

That's an impressive lineup from a skill perspective, but that team is incredibly 'soft'.

This game is getting interesting now :)

Nice to see the USA showing what they really can do. Shame it came out in the final period of the tourney. Also a positive that Canada finally faced some adversity though, they're going to be in for a surprise if they make it to Russia/Sweden.

Fixed.

Why? It gives Z a very good natural goal scorer on his wing, and it gives Tatar 2 above average play makers.

out of that i think the 1st star has to be Mrazek absolute awesome tourney on a very average Czech team. Also Jurco's stats

are impressive on a weak Slovak side, he also reg a +4 rating as well which was top for the Slovak's with only 2 other guys

with plus ratings. One game left can Tomas get into double figures with Teemu?

Czech Republic vs Russia last night was a great game. Wedgewood gets the start in nets for Canada in the gold medal rematch game tonight, it's gonna be off the chainnnnn

5+20 min penalty :scared::ph34r:

No matter how this ends I am so proud of how the Finnish team rebounded from the horrible Canada game. It's rare indeed to see a mentally strong Finnish national team, we always have catastophic meltdowns.

Pulkinnen just gets the puck to the net whenever he damn well pleases. It excites me.

Looks like the refs finally broke Russia's streak of penalty killing.

Why are they playing that annoying Blackhawks goal song whenever Canada scores? Isn't this game in Calgary?
