Haha, they have five left-handed defensemen and only three right-handed ones. They are going to lose big time.

Can they handle Tomas Kaberle, though ?

I've been advocating that for a while now. He's on a tear, bringing in someone who is hot is a good thing.

18 points in his last 17 games. He's a much better fit on a lower line then Ryan.

Not sure why the Americans should be concerned over carrying five left handed defensemen.

I don't care if he makes it but comparing him with Ryan, I think I take Okposo for these two weeks.

He's much more versatile and you can slot him anywhere.

Plus, as the Team U.S. coaching staff and front office has said, they only see Ryan as a top-six winger.

Yes he can and it's better then Tyler Ballsack.

Schneider should be going. He's been lights out.

I'm a realist, it won't do much either way if Canada can gel even the slightest bit.

Shero and Blysma piss me off.

On the big ice over there, I'd be looking at Russia to win this, if they get great goaltending.


I know it's not an all-star game, which is why I said they need to gel as a team and if they do, damage will be done.

Russia is a big threat too but I just envision Canada dominating.

Fleury just has to hold the fort down.

I don't think it will take long to figure out different angles to adjust on big ice.

I see Babcock going with Fleury after Lou collapses.

Who knows but it's just a guess.

I'd start Price.

The Americans, as they did in 2002 and 2010, will put forth the best overall performance.

Paul Martin - Erik Johnson

Would stand a decent chance of medaling. About even with Russia and Sweden.


Closer to Finland.

:mkbét::lr: :lr:

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

As Captain of the team, I hold Parise accountable for the lack of effort. Completely unacceptable.

It's hard for Parise to show effort when he only now realizes that his dad ruined his career before it even started by raising him in Minnesota instead of Canada.

his dad meddled all over the place when it came to trying to re-sign him. almost too close to tampering.
