Nor does the fact that Campbell came in struggling change how heralded he was going into the tournament.
That was the original context of this. Hype vs reality. Campbell was the golden boy who could do no wrong. He doesn't deserve all the blame last year. That D was putrid at times. He hasn't exactly excelled though since that tournament. Just maybe he isn't as good as advertised.
I see some American posters claiming Gibson is the best goalie in the tournament already. This is a deep year for goalies. Russia has 2 amazing guys and Subban is regarded as the most athletic of the bunch. Those are the 2 main pool opponents. No one team looks to have an overwhelming advantage in net.
