That was the difference IMO.
After that, no, they haven't meshed better as teams then Canada overall. Turin they were no better then Canada and considering the talent they had on hand for nagano that was a prime example of the U.S underacheiving and of meshing terribly.
Meshing over the past big time international tournaments over the past 14 years seems to be a wash between those 2 countries.
I think this time the US still has the much better goaltending and if the team is formed in the way I had them set up I think our great 2 way forwards can matchup with the high scoring Canada and Russia forwards.
