Hate to say it but I think Canada should focus on some shots from the point

Finns are playing very good, dedicated D. Canada will have to try something else other than throwing it from the corner at the net. Rask won't let crap like that in. The Pietrangelo chance was good, but didn't convert unfortunately. They gotta open it up and get a guy in the slot for a one-timer.

Momentum shift.

Canada's dictated the play and can't bury nuttin'. Good on the Finns for hanging in with their depleted roster. Nothing like having no pressure. This is kinda how I expected the Finns to play, defensively stingy. I still expected Canada to win 3 or 4-1 though.

Carolina?

Right you are. 16 points in 52 games this year with a -15. Ouch, he's better than that.

Put Tavares on a line with Crosby, that will provide offence and get Cindy going.

This is the 3rd game I've watched with Canada. They are not nearly as good as the US and Russia. I would be shocked if Canada got the gold or silver. Crosby, being the best player in the world, is supposed to make those he plays with, better. That's not happening.

Actually, in all honesty, he kinda sucks now. But I like that he plays with an edge, sticks his nose in the dirty areas, can be a good net-front guy (see: his goal just now). I think he could sort of be what we wanted Cleary/Samuelsson/Bertuzzi/Tootoo to be: a gritty bottom-sixer with some scoring upside. And he's rumored to be on the trade block. Only issue: cap hit. (Something like 4.5.) Hurricanes would have to eat some salary, maybe take on Quincey.

Failing that, we could trade for Crosby. He's also pretty good.

They played good last game, but I'd have to agree with your assessment. Especially against a depleted Finland team. Quit messing with the lines so much and get it together. No way should Finland be in a game as injured as they are against a totally healthy team Canada.

Phil "the face of America" Kessel is gonna bring home Gold draped around his pudgy little neck. Bank on it.

If by gold you mean silver, then you're absolutely right. He can look at Kronner's gold though. No touching. Too bad Pav is only gonna get bronze. Tough luck Canada! :lol:

I would blame Babcock with his ridiculous line shuffling. No chemistry at all. And Kunitz is lame, there goes Crosby's tag-along. Perry has been subpar, dragging Getzlaf down. I'd love to see Crosby centre Tavares and Duchene. Canada needs a go to line cause right now, we're watching grass and it's not even growing.
