Anyways, enjoy the game tomorrow US fans!
I'm not sure how this tournament became so big in Canada. Happens at Christmas, not much going on for TV. Same story for Canada. Most countries can field a decent top 20, so Canada will lose some. But Canada could probably fill a second team good enough for a shot at medal but it doesn't mean squat cause it is your top 20, depth doesn't count. I was kind of rooting for USA and Russia cause of Sabres prospects. Kept that to myself. It's a by treasonous up here.
