Yeah but we got Krueger now so were all good to go.

On a serious note though is Team Canada usually takes teams like the Swiss lightly and is seemingly forever doomed to poor memory. These players aren't very good students of the game and would know less about how past teams fared then the average fan. So they typically go into some games way overconfident figuring its a speedbump on the way to bigger games.

If you ever watched the NBA allstar US team play in the Olympics its the same phenomenon. They can make a game against Mongolia look interesting and then pedal to the medal against the few teams that can even play in the same ballpark. With Team Canada its much the same thing. Team playing according to its opposition.
