The finnish goalie is pretty flashy, he plays on feeling more than solid positioning but it's very entertaining to watch. Sadly their team overall don't seem as good this year as last, Sweden beat them today despite playing a pretty bad game.

Concerning the reactions to the Canada loss.

 

Yes, it's mindless stupidity to be concerned about losing one game ... or moreover, exactly comparable to most posters on this site when the Red Wings lose.

i think the concering factor is that the USA team hammered the Czech boys 5-1.

"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

Mantha and Paterson on team Canada
Considering the Americans only have 3 guys back from last year's gold medal team, I think they've looked pretty good
I didn't think Paterson looked all that bad...wasn't great but everyone on the TSN site are yelling for Furcale. I think the defense looked worse than the goaltending.

Defense has been the demise of team canada for years also some shaky goaltending

There is a differense between a loaded team with high expectations and a behind the pack team that needs to work hard, in order to  win games.

I'm still a little annoyed that we didn't get Alexander Wennberg in the last draft, the kid is absolutely amazing.

He was picked #14. Why would you be annoyed at the Wings not drafting a player who had already been drafted?

Obviously the hope was that he wouldn't be drafted that early, I was hoping no other team would pick him up and we did get fairly close.

I feel for him too having to play for Columbus now :P

Sutter is a terrible junior coach. Benched Mcdavid after he took 2 penalties. I mean...he's a 16 year old! He's supposed to make mistakes! He's also extremely talented and will probably want to make up for those mistakes.
Benching him accomplishes nothing.

Watched the replay this morning and Paterson let in some terrible goals yesterday, you could tell at some points it was crushing Canada's morale. I highly doubt he starts the next game especially after Suter comments. Also, Mantha didn't have a good game besides putting up 2 assists, he looked slow and took a bad penalty.

still would rather have Mantha

by the time he gets to Columbus they'll be pretty good

Nice assist there by Mantha. Pretty good game so far...


Slovakia looks better than I thought they would...

That and Canada is still struggling.  They can't get anything going offensively.

The shot total is there just no real finish work.

 

Also Canada needs to stay out of the box. Penalties are killing them...


I'll say this about Mantha. His skating is questionable but he knows how to bury the puck.

Could be a huge swing here, Mantha goal and a PP right after.

Mantha definitely knows how to find the back of the net.  You can't teach that.

 

As we've seen SO many times with the Wings, it's quality of shots, not quantity, that really matters...
