9 returning players, 2 returning goalies, first overall pick, size, strength, skill, international & home ice, etc...I just don't see it happening. This would be beyond a monumental collapse.
Almost half this group played last year, then played four games against Canada in the summer, and then played 6 games together in the Subway Super Series. I don't think there is any Canadian or Russian squad in the WJC history that has ever played as many significant games together prior to a tournament. There really shouldn't be a slow chemistry forming aspect to either squad. One hiccup in the tournament is hard to fathom, let alone two.
Hey, be bold or go home. If I am wrong, then I'm wrong. but I see certain things in that team which I don't like.... Of course it could all go the other way...Canada could crash and burn...14 years in a row with a medal..sooner or later we are bound to have a stinker, right? That's just the way the hockey gods operate.
