Tatar to me is better than hossa.

Hossa is really mailing it in. Tatar's been Slovakia's best forward in this tournament.

I really want Tatar to have an Oshie moment, but I don't hold out too much hope for the Slovak goalie in this one.

Great to see Canada switch the lines up, but I have no idea how Kunitz is still in the lineup. This is like Babcock and Cleary situation. MSL deserves playing time over Kunitz 110 / 100 times.

Tatar's been stellar for Slovakia, had Varlamov beat too. Good experience for the guy, same with Jurco and Nyquist. Young guys playing good on the big stage.

Just read an article about this. Everyone is changing their lineups today because they've played so much over the last three days. Pretty much every team is using it's reserve forwards and backup goalie in this final round robin game.

So this is basically where the tournament stands going into the final round robin game

#5 Russia - #12 Norway faces #4 in QF
#6 Switzerland - #11 Latvia faces #3 in QF
#7 Czech republic - #10 Slovakia faces #2 in QF
#8 Slovenia - #9 Austria faces #1 in QF

If Canada wins in regulation, #1 Canada, #2 Sweden, #3 USA, #4 Finland
If Finland wins in regulation, #1 Finland, #2 Sweden, #3 USA, #4 Canada
If Canada wins in OT/shootout, #1 Sweden, #2 USA, #3 Canada, #4 Finland
If Finland wins in OT/shootout, #1 Sweden, #2 USA, #3 Finland, #4 Canada

(These are assuming that Canada wins by less than 9 and Finland wins by less than 8)

Test chemistry. Babs changed lines during the Austria game a couple times that way when it comes down to elimination game they know who for sure is playing and who is not. However, Kunitz should be sitting. Nash has been pretty bad too.

I was going to say that it's probably not a good idea to play with lines against a team that's been playing well, in a game that will determine your seed for the medal round. But then I realized I was talking about Mike Babcock. Line changing is the air he breathes.

THAT'S WHY WE SHOULD HAVE SIGNED TATAR INSTEAD OF FRANZEN WHO IS LAZY AND SUCKS

GET IT TOGETHER KENNY

WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN

Olympic hockey is the boobs. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself!

I was seriously just thinking the same thing. I'm having a lot of fun watching these games. And while I'll be crushed if the USA doesn't bring home the gold, the good thing is that I'll still not feel as terrible as I did at the end of the 2009 playoffs...so there's really no downside.

well this might have something to do with the fact that Hossa is playing with a broken toe or something like that..nevertheless, I agree that he is trying his best

Last night's the last time I puked, but I'm guessing we did so for different reasons. Chances are, the last time I puked and the last time Patrick Kane puked were for the exact same reason.

So...the OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL GAME could potentially be decided by a *gulp* SHOOTOUT?!

I thought they would drop the SO as deciding factor after the round robin games, definitely for the medal games at least! *barf*

Get it together, world.
