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



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.
I'll play ball here. I think if anything the gap has narrowed since 2010. The larger ice really does help the US more the Canadians. Our DMen are very close I think to the Canadian DMen. Letang has a lot of momentary lapses in judgment. We aren't as talented as the forward core of Canada, but we have fast and good skaters with very good hands.

And there's no question where the advantage lies for netminders.

And I completely agree, if they don't come out one hundred percent focus, either team that is, they will get run over. This one's on their turf now, and you know who is not going to roll over and die like they did in 2010.
