And the fact that he was once so highly touted, and his start to the OHL season.

And hey, don't insult Professor Polo Shirt, Big Brother is watching.

Poor showing. I just don't understand all these people trolling over a USA loss.

Was USA even predicated to medal?

I don't even understand. It's one thing to troll about teams but...really? about nationality?

Like this:

Yeah. I have nothing against Canada. Heck my favorite player is Sean Avery and he's canadian . I just wonder why so many people are going nuts over a USA loss. One guy even said he doesn't care if Canada loses to USA since USA is out.

Canada holding a grudge because the US stopped them from doing what nobody has done before in 2010 - Win six world juniors in a row. Doubt they let it go until they are able to actually do that.

If Clendening(sp?) didn't bet against the US then he sure had a bad streak of games.

What a joke of an effort.

They were..

Also Finland was considered a competitive team against Canada and we got shelled 8-1.

Meh, disappointed. I love the czech celebrations though. Rooting for the Swedes... if not them, the Finns

J.T. Miller looked good. Too bad he hit the pipe just before the Czechs scored.

Agreed and again, I'm pretty happy with his effort. By no means dominant but compared to all the other US no-shows JT did well. It was obvious he cared and was playing it out.

USA! USA! US... Oh wait we're out?

One step forward, two steps back for USA junior hockey. Hopefully they'll actually put together a team next year and not just a roster of kids who should be good players in their own right.

JT Miller was also physical in the Finland game. Bjustad gets a pass. He was hurt coming into the WJC. Upper body injury. Miller should be proud of his play. He is one of the youngest players on the team and was one of their best players yesterday. The Rangers have another good player in the system.

Wow so your saying miller is making things happen out there again? I'm so surprised!
#majorsarcasmsmiley

As far as I'm concerned, he can't get in a blueshirt soon enough.

JT Miller hit Scott Harrington behind the Canadian net

Word from Team Canada today is both Scott Harrington and Nathan Beaulieu, who were injured last night, should be in lineup on Tuesday.

Miller got an assist on Coyle's goal. Made a nice interception of a pass

Miller is definitely more of a playmaker than a goal scorer. He kinda reminds me of Dubinsky, but his hockey sense seems to be better. Good size, strong along the boards.

Should be another solid contributor to this club soon.

Gotta luv a kid like that and it does not matter where he is from if he can play...we have to remember that these players are still kids in this tournament and things don't always go just right and a couple of bad breaks later you find yourself on the outside looking in...losing also helps in building character .

It's almost uncanny how much he resembles Dubi with the puck.

He's like a Dubi-Cally combo. He hits everything that moves.

I like Miller and I think he'll be a great Ranger but I'm still upset that we didn't get Klefbom. He's been terrific for the Swedes and on the Oilers board they say he hasn't been on for an ES goal against! That's crazy considering he's on the top pairing and he had to face Yakupov, Kuznetsov and others.

Miller may not be the most consistent player, but when he is on, he is physically dominating. For his age, he is freakishly strong, almost like Kreider and McIlrath were in their draft years. See a theme?

Almost the entire team is just terrible.

Saad is a ****ing joke. What a pathetic excuse for a hockey player. Dude just does not want to be there and does not care. Disgrace to the uniform. I never want to see him representing this country ever again. Get someone out there who cares and who wants to be there.

Merrill is just garbage. Clendenning is just garbage. Forbort is beyond garbage. Tinordi and Johns are serviceable, at least.
