Canada over-relied on older players and it didn't pay off. Lost 2-0 to Sweden in the semi-finals so no medal for the Men's team.
USA went with younger players and it didn't pay off for them too. Safe to say neither had the best mix. The old guys for Canada, were....old. Maybe it's just me but actually thought the most dangerous player with the puck was Ho-Sang, but don't think he really had anyone to play with. I also got that feeling sometimes watching him at Marlies games. He's at a different level if you know what I mean. Hoping he's back in time for next Monday's Marlies game!

I liked Ho-Sang's game.  Julien obviously didn't because he played the least of the forward group.  We got Eric Staal force fed down our throats though and outside of a couple of shifts in the 2nd China game I felt like he looked like an old player who hadn't played hockey this year.

I liked his game as well. Goaltending wasn't an issue but how doesn't Levi get a sniff?
