As for the D pairs, If anything they are a shade under their canadian counterparts. Go through it. I will.

Suter Yandle
Jack Johnson

Weber Doughty

The gap isn't as large as you think.
I don't think it is as close as you think...

Suter is very good. Jack Johnson however has had the worst +/- in the NHL over the last 3 years. Yandle was horrible in the playoff against the Red Wings and is unproven in big games.

Maybe we are both wrong and it is somewhere in the middle.

I'm not sure. Year in and year out, the U.S. does horribly at the World Championship - on the big ice. I have seem some of your favourites play at the WC and they do not play well.

On the small ice, IMO, it is Canada and the U.S. for Gold going forward. One the big ice, either team could fall on their face.
