I thought the team looked like they were skating in mud through much of the game. They just looked slow and as the game went on they looked like they were trying to do too much by individuals. Their passing looked like the Predators, passing too far ahead or behind someone, or just to no one.



But lets not forget that there is another game, the games aren't over, the US can still get a medal!!! A lot of people had predictions all over for the US, from Gold to a 5th place finish. And considering their history on international ice, a medal of any kind would be a success. Bring that medal home US and prove a lot of doubters wrong. USA USA USA!!!

I was only impressed with him in the first game. From the beginning of the Russia game he looked slow and tentative doing anything. Ever since then, he hasn't really looked the same for any length of time. And I'm a fan of Kane, I was hoping he would have a great tournament.
