You always seem to be the optimist (good season for that in US hockey) but I just don't see the talent that team had coming forward. I've been dissapointed with the results the last two years in particular because, despite the skill of the young players, the inexperience prevented success. Now that they have the experience, they're either not available or likely to be unwilling for various reasons. Unless we find a way to do more with less this year I just don't see things going our way.
All this said, my criteria for success at this tournament is a medal. 4th place doesn't do anything for me or US hockey at this point. I'd like to see some before the next Olympics.
