I would love to a track meet for each game, that would be some entertaining hockey (RNH and Yakupov exchanging odd man rushes) Isn't it refreshing they went with more offense this year? So much emotion during the WJC that momentum can swing wildly from team to team and many games are decided by offensive outburst that last a few minutes and produce a 5 goal lead. You need the firepower to seize those moments. Conversely you need the firepower to make up those margins, as Canada learned the last two years. Also nice to see TC buck their usual trend and make their selection based on talent rather than age with Drouin and MacKinnon.
