BTW, I thought all these things BEFORE the medal round. They are not new observations.
I think you're bang on. This team did not resemble the well-oiled machines we usually send to these tournaments, which is painfully ironic considering it's a lockout year. Maybe the theory that the players were believing their own pre-tourney hype also extended to the coaching staff. The players didn't seem to think they needed work ethic to succeed, maybe the coaches felt the same way.
