is Flashy saying that American's were cheering for a Canada regulation win so we don't have to meet them in a medal round?  Please....

 

I was rooting for a outright Canadian lose.  I don't want the Canadians to win anything ever.  I could care less if we have to play them or not, because nothing is better than watching the Canadian teams lose.  I have already explained that the ONLY thing that scares me about the Canadians is their D.  Their O is incohesive and their goalies are nowhere near as good as Quick/Miller... As it stands, if all "top" teams advance, it will be USA v. Canada to see who goes to Gold round or Bronze round.  Nothing is guaranteed and the USA could possibly lose to a very talented CZE or a SLV team set on revenge.  Canada is going to have fits with the Swiss if they aren't somehow upset by Latvia.

 

But Flashy, to say the US is trying to avoid Canada is crap.  I would love to eliminate them in whichever round we get to play them in, but like stated above, I want to see Canada lose all the time, against whoever, because it is great to see the crying that comes after and the whining... I hope to see them in the semi's, but they better get their O together because compared to the rest of their preliminary games, the USA is Omnipotent.... (not to be confused with omnipotent-hudler)

 

and that, my friend Flashy, is the Juck  f****** Pott...

 

It's not crap. He is saying the exact same thing I said. He is also a member at HF like myself, he probably read the exact same posts I was reading from a lot of American's. Whether you like it or not, your country doesn't want to play Canada because it is the toughest competition for you guys before the gold medal game, and the chances of you being eliminated are a lot higher / vice versa.

 

As for goaltending, we aren't really concerned, we have only given up 2 goals the entire tournament so far. If the forwards getting clicking it will be a harder tournament than what you think. Please focus on USA, because you clearly have no idea what kind of team Canada is.

Last thing they need is another big guy that can't skate.  Add Phil Kessel or Patrick Kane to Finland's team and that game isn't even close.  Finland just doesn't have any scorers, otherwise, I thought they outplayed Canada.  Thornton's a great passer, and he's awesome on the NHL ice, but in big ice I think he struggles just as much as the rest of them.

 

How can you say that ? Canada's defense has shut everything down except for two deflections. They haven't played USA so there is no telling that adding Kessel and Kane to Finland would have made any difference, those two can be shut down by an elite defense.

#2484599 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by darkmanx on 16 February 2014 - 08:01 PM

I would trade just about anybody not named Datsyuk or Zetterberg for Ovechkin...

 

lol not worth it. Would cost a ton, and his cap hit is not good. He is a great goal scorer, but that's about it for him, hes way too 1 dimensional and I would rather not pursue him.

didn't they just crush austria 6-0... why change the lines now?

 

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.

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 in the shootout. f*** yea.

 

Russia minus Datsyuk and Malkin are really really bad. I cannot believe how much Kovalchuck has regressed since playing in the KHL, he looks terrible.

Cbc announcer always is saying stuff like they've really tightened that box, that's a tight box, Russia can't get into that tight box, or my favourite creepy one, oh Ya, look at that tiny little box.

 

Haha I noticed that as well.


Just tuned into the USA game.  Kessel with a hatty?  Him and JVR are deadly.

 

I hate Toronto, but those two are deadly together.
