Actually d-men were the better part of Canadians today


Yeeeah also had 250 blocked shots. They were collapsing hard though. Protecting that 2 goal deficit

Babcock sure loves his point shots from the blue line that get through 5 percent of the time

Great result for Team USA today. I was expecting a tight win for the Americans and did not expect a 7-1 sHALAKing! (hah!)

I can't wait for the USA Russia game Saturday morning the atmosphere will be electric. 

 

I was disappointed with Team Canada. Even though they controlled the game (as they should against Norway) they couldn't finish. Thankfully I'm accustomed to being disappointed by team Canada in the Round-Robin stage of the Olympics as they often take a few games to start clicking. 

 

2010

L 5-3 USA

W 3-2 OT Switzerland

W 8-0 Norway

 

2002

L 5-2 Sweden

W 3-2 Germany

T 3-3 Czech Republic

 

- Hopefully Russia and Sweden go home early so Datsyuk and Zetterberg can rest up and get healthy for the Wings playoff push.

Like a guy lacking in NHL level skill


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

You too? Haha... I did work that didn't require me to use my computer and watched the game on a cbc stream

Theyre replaying the us game on nbcsn if anyone missed it this morning

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I normally get a crowd going in my office, game was too early today though.  Had a few people step in during the Canada/Norway game.  I set it up on a separate monitor on my side desk.  Our content filtering blocked the NBC stream due to video sharing...but I am the sysadmin so the power to get around it lies in my hands.  Heh.

Haha, same here. I had a bunch of people asking me to add them to the exclusion list so it didn't get blocked.

That he did, on a pretty nice wrister too.  He was easily their best player all game long.  Jurco looked good too though.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I was not impressed by Canada at all today to be honest.  They got pushed around by Norway and didn't have any pushback physically to assert dominance over a team that they should have beaten by much more.  That's Babcock coaching though.  They basically looked like the last few years of Wings teams that have quality parts, but can't seem to dominate games that they should, especially on the score sheet.  And Kunitz's penalty on the PP was Cleary-esque.  Get rid of that clown and his terrible discipline and get Duchene on the top line where he belongs instead of the press box.  That's the equivalent of having Cleary in the top 6 and Nyquist in GR.  I also wish that Nash was the 13th forward and that Seabrook was there in place of Hamhuis, but oh well, at least they grinded out a W.

 

USA on the other hand....6 goals in the 2nd!  That's retarded.  Kessel has been on a 6 week hot streak and he clearly isn't done.  Aside from Orpik and Martin being there over more deserving/better players, I'd have to agree that the US squad is looking pretty damn good, and Quick is an amazing goalie.  Price was solid today, but he's no Quick.  Gonna be a good game should Canada play USA....not sure if they play in the round robin...?

I thought hamhuis was good. The Defense as a whole was good. It's hard to get a lot of scoring chances against a team that wasn't trying to win. They just were playing to keep the goals down.

I think Canada was just trying to do all the right things and the score didn't matter to them. They could have been sailing the puck in as soon as they entered the blue line on a bad goalie and probably netted some more. They played a good structured game after the first period. Norway's second goal was pretty flukey on a bad play behind the net by Price

  And do you actually ever have a nice thing to say about Canada, or do you just hate all Canadians?  And I'm not trolling you, that's a serious question.  You haven't come across as a very likeable person of late.

 

 

Valid question that is better asked in a personal message.   :brow:


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Canada didn't have to do more so why waste energy? Also Norways ticket tto the Olympics was.their structured system,.they've played to keep the score down, which is smart. I thought Haugen played lights out and was better than Price.

Norway and Austria are the underdogs in this group and if they try to play with either Finland or Canada the scores would be ugly. Look at Austria lost 4:8 against the fins, because like Slovakia they didn't play it smart.

It's just day one but obviously I'm impressed by Norway and America
