I'm really surprised how poor the US has been defensively thus far in the tournament. The sloppy passes, bad pinches and poor reads have lead to more odd man rushes than I've ever seen against an NTDP team. Demko hasn't been great in goal but he's been hung out to dry constantly. I think a lot of the guys on the US defensive core are trying to do too much and just not using their heads. If they can't sort things out they're going to have a hard time against stronger opponents in the elimination games. I'm definitely quite worried about the game against Finland on Tuesday.
