Getzlaf trying to pick up a fight in the nightclub:

'You don't want this, I will put you all down'.

Hard to say what has really happened, anyway, not the best possible preparation for the games.

A bigger deal- Vlasic being out for the tournament with a leg injury. I found that he was doing pretty well thus far. This defence is going to shambles.

Maybe Weber can come over....real soon...

But Quincy?? Ive been reading about him, Detroit gave up their 2012 1st pick for him, how bad can he be ??? He strongest asset is his skating...maybe it will help on this big ice ...this looks really bad now, going to worse??? Is Quincey better than Method, Schenn and Murry???

The partying's not a big deal. Canada isn't in any danger of not making the cut (unless they really screw up), they have a day off today, and it's likely a few of their first times in Finland.

Regarding the Vlassic injury...

LOL. Outside of the Olympics, Hockey Canada's luck on the international stage has been ridiculously bad the last 3 or 4 years. This tournament is over for us, as far as I'm concerned. The team is playing like ****. Ward is giving us **** goaltending. The injuries are mounting. Time to pack it up boys. Game over.

They are adding Quincey...We can wait for Shea Weber....Why Quincey??? Everyone else said no!!!! I think including Quincey we can add 1 more skater.....

Can we replace an injured player or not ?

Isn't Weber a RFA? I doubt he shows up. You could probably get Kevin Klein though....

With all of Canada's depth, I'm amazed this is the best defense they could come up with-especially for a tourney on international ice.

I wonder if Teemu is in Helsinki to show some nice time to Perry and Getzlaf?

Schenn made Beauchemin look like another Lebda in Toronto. He was definitely outplayed.

Against USA Schenn actually looked good. Didn't make one bad pass. Always crisp and on tape. He was also certainly better than Methot and Vlasic.

MTV3 news is a joke they have always "colorful pens" when they write those stories.

I saw almost all of Quincey's games with Detroit this year. He is definitely better than Schenn and Murray, but that isn't saying much. He will probably help with the transition game, but he gives the puck up a ton and isn't great defensively. Not the player Canada needs.

I highly doubt that Weber comes, considering he is a free agent this summer and he is a lock for the Olympics already. I am also highly doubtful that Pietrangelo comes given his injuries this playoffs. Canada should be absolutely begging for Brian Campbell to come, and they may also want to wait for Wash/NY to be finished to try for either Alzner or Girardi.

Did Canada already ask Dan Hamhuis? He's very good, keeps Kevin Bieksa looking a lot better than Kevin Bieksa actually is.

Pretty shocking that hamhuis or bieksa did not get the call.

Together they are some of the best shut down pairings in the league.

Especially Hamhuis who is a fantastic D-man.

From what i understand Quincey is a replacement for Subban, Quincey logs over 20 minutes (He cant be that bad???) a game.
Is he top 4 in Detroit ? I keep reading his best Asset is Skating...
I hope for Weber and look realistically towards Alzner or Girardi (Staal will say NO as did his brothers)

Apparently it's Perry and Getzlaf on the counter and Ward getting to know the blonde


Yeah...that's not Ward.

Out of all the defensemen (except Keith) that could have gone down, it had to be Vlasic...are we going to see Schenn in the top four now?!

Unless our offense and goaltending gets its **** together, we have no hope in winning this thing. I can't believe Quincy is the best defenceman they could get. wtf Lowe.

I know Hamonic declined due to personal reasons. I take MacDonald over Schenn pretty easily, as well as Murray and Quincey.

At least he's showing some heart off the ice.

Since he absolutely seems to hate shooting the puck, that possible reason can safely be disregarded.
