Penalty shots between Sweden-Russia...great...I'd prefer sudden until it's over...sweet we made it...facing USA should be tough though.

I know you can't base it entirely on what happens at the WJC but if I have the #1 pick this June...I don't know if Mackinnon is in the mix. He may not be the #2 choice.

Waited for rebroadcast for 11am, mom says they lost before I could watch. Angry.

What a terrible collapse on the first goal. Absolutely atrocious. They all panicked like chickens with their heads cut off.

It felt like an All in the Family moment.

Plus Quinn is a presence behind the bench. I'm convinced these players don't even pay attention to the coach. Quinn is a pretty hard guy to ignore.

Exactly.  You don't mess around on Quinn, not for a second.  That said, the kids who played for him all said he was an amazing coach and really good to him - probably because they didn't mess around on him. :)

His style is the right one to have in this tournament.  He likes the offense to play almost run and gun, and gets his defesne engaged in the attack .. I think a little too much for the NHL now but perfect for international tournaments.  His success demonstrated he could get a bunch of teenagers ready to play in a big hurry and on a short run like this, keep them engaged and motivated. 

no coincidence the last two times Canada won gold, Quinn was coach. They haven't won gold since.

Perhaps find out if Quinn wants to before we book every Christmas/holiday period for the rest of his life to coach juniors?  ;)

What I don't understand is why they split Ouellette and Reilly when he served as catalysts before.

Seems like a comedy of errors really. Imagine the team without guys like Strome, Scheifele and RNH? Wed probably be lucky to be top 4 and if we were wed be 4th easily.

It seems like that kind of draft year where there's a top tier of 5 or 6 guys but no standout or marquee guy.. yet.

I disagree. I think, and again this is based on not a ton of information, that Seth Jones looks like a pretty clear cut #1 at this point.

So I haven't watched any of the games....  How did Rielly play?

And, on a side note, once again the geniuses at THN blow the WJC progno.  They had Canada as a lock for gold and pronounced the Swedes "dogs."
