I agree, which is why I am at a loss for an explanation. Canada had so many skilled forwards and puck moving D. yet, they just didn't show up. The biggest factors I saw as just poor positional defence, which is a shame, since Reinhard, Hamilton, Harrington are all suppose to be so good at that. THe offensive D men didn't contribute much, Murphy nothing and Rielly really just had the one good game.

On top of that poor Goaltending, there is just no way to get around it, Subban was not as good as he should have been.
