IMO when a team as a whole plays poorly, the coaching and management needs to be evaluated more so than the players.

The team looked ill prepared & disorganized, lacked emotion, then got behind early to a very good team with an excellent goaltender and that is all she wrote.
I re-watched the game yesterday and I am absolutely baffled by the positioning these players took on the US goals. These are quality, skilled players skating around like chickens with their heads cut off.

On the first goal, it's astonishing seeing FOUR Canadian players setting up shop in front of their own goalie! That is ALL coaching. Spott should be fired...on the spot.

I feel bad for Subban. Very few goalies would stand a chance with the fartastic performance of the guys in front of him.
