And why the hell he didn't call a timeout after the 2nd Russian goal is a question that can never be answered appropriately.

The Russians deserved the win, but I'm pissed at the coaching from the selection camp to today. Canada left a lot of skill and talent at home, while they took a bunch of 3rd liners to the dance. I don't know if that would have made a difference tonight, but there were a bunch of empty nets missed early in the game, where it may have.
The one thing that struck me was why Calvin Pickard wasn't playing. I'm not one of those "goaltending is everything!!!" people, but Roy and Visentin looked pretty crappy to me. Pickard is one of best junior goaltenders out there, and yet he stayed in Seattle. Seemed kinda stupid to me.
