Usa took a well deserved medal, Granlund dominated in the 3 period and took Finland back in the game. Galchenyuk with 2 great shootout goals sealed the deal.
Granlund is suited for big rinks and that is the biggest problem for especially Canada, to adjust to bigger surfaces in a short time.Canada take out players bye their CV and not how they are suited for big rinks. A hungry less player is much better for a team then a "star" who hasnt the drive.
Usa gave their young prospects a lot of icetime like trouba,Galchenyuk and the goalie Gibson (who took the job from Bishop).
I think Kreuger had made a goldteam from this Canadian team,he has experience with euro rinks and are updated on players in Nhl . Ruff was a disaster, i think he didnt had a clue about some of the players strenght, Taylor Hall had the drive and didnt get the minutes he should, instead Ruff chickened out and gave misfits a lot of minutes.
