Not a fan of Spott.

Haven't liked the way he has conducted himself in interviews with regards to the officiating. He should have kept a lid on it. Acknowledge the differences in the standards and say that the team needs to adjust.

Selection of the team, some interesting decisions to say the least. Rolled the dice with keeping Jenner on the roster despite the 3 game suspension. Had the IIHF ruled that Carama's hit was suspendable, Canada would have faced the USA with only 10 forwards, then the next day would play Russia with 10 tired forwards and 3 fresh ones.

Goalies, no reason to put everything on one goalie. Subban hasn't looked good in any of his appearances for Canada since the selection camp.
