I just watched the U.S./Canada game on demand. The U.S. couldn't really get much going 5on5, and I think that trend will continue at the actual tournament. It will be a blue collar affair up front with the defense once again kick-starting the offense. Honestly, I think the team will look very similar to last year's squad. I think Gillies is a touch below Gibson, but will still be rock solid. He's pretty refined for a big guy and can make the spectacular save when called upon. Likely no Jones and Trouba, but I think the defense will be very solid. Some very good skaters and puck-movers.
