I have no idea what kind of team Canada is? It's the same kind of team as the USA is, a bunch of All Star NHL players...putting a Canadian sweater on Ryan Getzlaf doesn't make him any different of a player when he has a Ducks sweater on. Same can be said for Cam Fowler fort the USA.
You gave up two goals all tourney thus far, true, but you barely beat Norway and Finland. We gave up 2 goals to Russia, arguably the 3rd best team in the Olympics. You gave up 2 goals total to Finland and Norway (snicker) all while scoring 11, 6 of which came against Austria (snicker snicker.) We only gave up 4 total and scored, ready? 15 all against NHL laden teams with NHL goaltenders...
This is all meaningless, but it was one of your fellow Canadian fans who first posted that the reason Canada has struggled is that they have played higher ranked teams...which its obvious that that excuse has been blown out of the water.
Team USA and Team Canada are basically the same team. So to say I don't know what kind of team Canada is, is just wrong on all aspects. Team USA just seems to be gelling better and that could be the factor that makes the difference this year.
So 4 more goals for than Canada, and 2 more against. So your guys offence has been working better and our D has been working better. And 6 of our goals are from our D. We all know full well our F's have been lame offensively, but it's only a matter of time before the smelling salts kick in. All it takes is a little patience for the other team to make a mistake and strike. D isn't our worry, so there's a massive bonus.
To answer your question to darkmanx, that is our Canadian team in a nutshell. A defensive juggernaut that is ready to explode offence.
