while im not necessarily in 100% agreement with the extent to canada's "failure" to bring even more firepower... i will say this.
i think we could've used stamkos' right handed one timer. and for everyone claiming about green's deficiencies on defense.. theyre overblown imo and it's not like the other dmen we have our error free.. look at the many bad turnovers in the defensive end yesterday by niedermayer yesterday, and pronger's dumb penalties.
wouldve had green as the 7th dman, and stamkos as the 13th forward. that way we still keep the checking line which we do need of toews, bergeron, and richards.
but we're giving ourselves at least the top PP point men in the league on forward (stamkos) and defense (green).
but again, even with these additions fundamentally team canada still wouldve struggled last nite imo. 1 or 2 players wont make or break your team, but can definitely help for sure.
