No, you were definately jumping to conclusions. The post was pretty clear.

First it was mentioned that team USA has rather suspect scoring, followed by the question if they even have a 25+ goalscorer from the NHL on the roster. Team USA has the goal to win a medal, they obviously won't be able to reach that goal if they can't score.

Germany, on the other hand, wants to get to the next round, they don't expect to win a medal and even the hope for a place in the quarterfinals is rather slim.

It should have been pretty obvious to you that the goals and expectations are entirely different and as such warrant a completely different player quality.

The post wasn't about winning a single game, it was about meeting expectations in the tournament. Obviously Germany won't be able to contend for a medal without scoring either, but that has absolutely nothing to do with the points which were brought up.

You can get to a certain level without elite scoring, but if you want to win something, like Team USA does, you have to get it.

So yes, you were jumping to conclusions, and pretty much failed to comprehend the post you were answering to.


Not that I agree with the argument entirely. It was just one game, against an opponent who had much more time to prepare and who was pushed by 77,000 fans. There is more than enough time for Team USA to turn this around. It's not like all the other favorites are loaded with elite NHL-scorers either.

Just like Germany can follow up their one great game by two really bad ones, like they have done in the past, and thus go to the relegation round again, is it possible for the USA to turn things around and go after a medal.

Oh, how dare I reply to someone on a message board, I should have known that only two people are allowed to discuss things
Maybe I should suggest to the admins to add this to the site rules, it sure would make things much better

If you are to incompetent to understand what others are writing that's entirely your fault, not mine. That you have the nerve to insult someone who explains something to you is even better.

I guess that's how you go, if you can't win an argument, just insult them, way to go!

Well... it was one (of not, THE ONE) of the most entertaining hockey games I've ever seen. I had a place in the standings but I saw the ice well. The atmosphere was awesome in the beginning but as the game progressed it wasn't that good anymore. In the end it was just awesome. Really awesome. I just hope our players will work as hard as they did on friday because it seems that Denmark is pretty good, too.
