Canada would seem to be the heavy favourite...esp in light of our offense. i'm worried about our goal - i expect subban to be #1 re canada's goal...but the yanks are so solid w/ gibson - imo he's the best goalie in the entire CHL..and maybe at the tourney (and i'm a knights fan). i also expect the US will be able to grind out in a way that Canada simply won't. canada's decided to do the "speed, skill" thing...which is nice, but i worry about us against us and russia.
Re: russia - of everyone on that roster (incl. yakupov) vasilevski is scariest - didn't he play last yr as 17 yr old (or am i wrong on that one?).
on paper it looks like canada - and they're trying to hype it as a canada/russia gold medal match - but i think the us is under-rated in the tourney.
we'll see. no matter the hype, canada's juniors are great at cr@pping the bed at the worst possible moment.
