Interesting faceoff numbers from the USA-SLO game. SLO's Jan & USA's Legwand were perfect in the circles.

Ivo Jan, 15 FO's (15-0), 100.00%
Jaka Avgustincic, 11 FO's (10-1), 90.91%
Mitja Sivic, 10 FO's (8-2), 80.00%
Anze Kopitar, 19 FO's (11-8), 57.89%

USA:

David Legwand, 11 FO's (11-0), 100.00%
Mike Modano, 17 FO's (15-2), 88.24%
Doug Weight, 15 FO's (12-3), 80.00%
Jeff Halpern, 13 FO's (8-5), 61.54%

There's no way all eight centers can combine for 90-21 on faceoffs. That would mean that at least 69 faceoffs (combining both teams) were taken by wingers or defensemen.

Doug Weight was handling the puck waaay too much. He looked like a little kid at Christmas time...hoarding his new toys...buzzing around in his own little world...all too happy ro drift amongst slower/weaker players until he was just too tired to make a decent play.
As much as the USA altered thier roster for this tourney...they are still playing their calling card of past International tourneys...against Slovenia...way too fancy to fly against a better team.

He did have the puck alot, but that's to be expected since he's the top playmaker on the team. He made several great passes, and controlled play along the boards, just like he does in the NHL with the Blues. I thought he played great.
