I'm Canadian and I'm tired of seeing the "bring home gold Sidney" commercial during a USA vs Russia game.  I know CBC is a Canadian channel, but it takes away from the effect of this epic battle.

One may notice though that their bottom 6 is scary below average for the olympic stage.  This game may be decided by depth, which is a battle that the Americans would win as they have 4 solid lines.  Nichuskin (spelling?) and Kulemin are not gonna cut it.

So far both look good. Nichushkin needs to be moved up to one of the top lines, since Kovy-Datsyk-Radulov is obviously not working out.

Just heard that Barkov is out of the tournament.  Too bad, I really really like that kid and I wanted him to push Canada hard tomorrow.  Let's hope the injuries slow down and the best teams are in the medal round with their best players.

You're too wreckless Bobrovsky!  Reign it in.  

You're a loose cannon Bobrovsky!

 

TSN isn't the same anymore.

Really bad for a Finland team that's playing very good thus far.

Datsyuk is looking night and day better today than he has since coming back from injury.

 

I'm less worried about the Wings surviving without Zetterberg for a while if this is the Datsyuk we're getting back from Sochi.

Yeah actually you did compare them by saying team USA has also not faced a medal contender (after I referred to Norway and Austria being lucky draws). Team Slovakia is much more respected and has a much better chance for a medal than either Norway or Austria. And it's not my fault that team USA hasn't played their 2nd game yet. The point is, Canada got very lucky with their first 2 draws, compared to team USA who already faced a respectable team and will face a Gold medal contender (and home country) team Russia for their 2nd game.

Apparently stating facts is "hating on the favorites." So so overly sensitive it's almost laughable. lol


Slovenia beat Slovakia.

Nichushkin just made a great defensive play that's for sure.

Slovenia beat Slovakia.

Regardless of who each team has played is there really any point in debating which team has looked better at this point?

 

Lets just enjoy a great hockey game today and hope that we get to see that question answered with a gold medal on the line.

Ryan Kesler laying down to block some shots!  Atta boy kid.


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."
