goaltending holds up, i think Canada is the favourite to take the Gold Medal. I think Canada, Russia and USA are the three leading contenders right now. Just praying Luongo and Carey Price are lights out for the next year, so i can sleep better with our goaltending for 2014.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but we're not going to steamroll Finland; they always field a strong team that's greater than the sum of their individual parts.

You've got to include Sweden as a contender, too; I'd argue they're better than the U.S., considering the international ice surface.
