Tell me about it, with decent goaltending they probably have 8 WJC Gold medals in a row, at least 7 in the last 8 years.

Goaltending has killed us.

Kassian got punted for part of the tournament if I remember right. Bringing that kind of a guy has benefits but also risks. I think Hockey Canada is always in a tough spot, but they have brought this on themselves for not always bringing the most talent. When you lose and that is the case you hear all about it. When they win they talk about the veteran nature and the guys knowing roles.

The real issue for Canada right now for me as an outside observer is their goalies stink usually. They just aren't all that great. It is even starting to show at the highest level. It is a problem they need to address.
