Hmm sounds like you were watching a different olympic games then I did. In your universe who won the gold medal? In mine it was a team who bought in to solid defensive play all over the ice, an aggressive forecheck that kept opponents pinned in their own zone and quick line changes. All of the players on that team were solid defensivley and nobody was floating, the worst mistake Kunitz made was being to aggressive around the net in the Latvia game and took a penalty that ended up not costing the team anything since they had a great pk with some of the players that were often criticized on these boards for making the team.
