Right now, better rivalry: USA/CAN or CAN/RUS

You had a good goalie, big deal.
Team USA consitently outshot the opposition. The only team that outshot them was Canada, and in the gold medal game it was by about 3 shots.
I have a feeling that #5 ranking will be going up. Team USA was the youngest team in the tournament and yet they were the only team to beat Canada, and their only loss was in OT to the best team in the tournament.
Team USA also took the WJCs this year. Which is a sign for the future.
