I think your statement is as arrogant as those posting that Canada is some unbeatable team, yet Russia pounded them twice just in August.
Rank Canada's top six forwards and Russia's top six forwards, put them side by side and Canada will be > on every one of them. Canada isn't unbeatable, especially in a one game tournament but on paper they are head and shoulders above everyone else. All it takes is a lights out goaltending performance to eliminate them though - certainly not a lock for gold. Also in the summer Canada didn't have that guy who is by far the best player in the tournament/a first line centre in the NHL...
