Canada was the best team. They dominated Sweden the same way they did the US. When it counts their best players show up. Crosby hadn't scored a goal all tourney and he scores today. Towes scores and played great defense the whole tourney. Carey Price stepped up and played great in goal with 2 shutouts in the last 2 games.

I don't think the US would have beaten Canada regardless of who they selected. The only reason it was 1-0 was because of Quick otherwise it would have been worse. If Kane had made that 1st penalty shot I think the US may have beaten Finland as getting a lead after a tough loss makes things easier. Even the 2nd penalty shot to make it 2-1 would have swung momentum. Kane didn't come thru when we needed him and he knows that more then anybody. We needed better leaders on that team then Parise, Suter, and Dustin Brown along with a better coach to get those guys ready for Finland. The gold or bust mentality pretty much sunk us for the bronze medal game. In 4 yrs some younger players like Jones will be ready and maybe we'll get a better coach.

Olympics is over and now time to switch back to complaining about the preds.
