Let's say we have the group of three forwards considered the best in the world in Crosby, Malkin & Ovechkin - none of them have been among the best in this "best of the best" tourny. Heck, they all had trouble with marginal players from marginal nations.

No sc superstar from the NHL has been dominant here - kovalchuk was useless, the one everyone assumes will win the Norris, Duncan Keith - has been thoroughly outplayed by several defencemen - atleast one of his own team, Weber.

The utter crap this has been dragging Lidstrom down for two consecutive years aka Rafalski, is leading the Olympics in points if I'm not mistaken? Atleast for defencemen.

All other top goalies in the NHL but Miller has been struggling, Lundqvist was atrocious when it really mattered - Brodeur got thrown out, Luongo then came in and let in a couple of softies.

This tourny has been weird.
