Just tuned into the game. Looks like a fairly intriguing squad thanks to the lockout. Not sure who this barker is Petro? At least the Oiler product you are talking about.

Smyth is way too slow for the big ice.

You'd think Spezza could dominate here, he is definitely a star at the NHL level, at least in my opinion.

Funny that Canada loses on two goals scored by North Americans, both of whom were born in Canada I believe.

Not a big deal though, since the Spengler Cup is for Clubs more so than anything else. Just found that point amusing.

Nah. It's a pretty big deal and a little hilarious because the arrogant, locked out NHL big shots got schooled by players who make their living playing hockey overseas. It looks great on the NHLers after they took roster spots away from players in Europe.

So a roster with NHLers beat another roster with NHLers. Hooray!

Well they didn't take them by force at gun point.

The spots were given to them.

I mean like any place of employment, they showed their skills, and were hired. That's what happens when "big firms" do layoffs.

It just feels like you have an anti-player bias in your comment.

Also, it's not fully true. While there were more NHLers on the Canada team, let's keep in mind that Jason Pominville scored the OT winner. It's not as black and white as you portray it.

Just watched the game and i was rather pleased with Gagner. Linemate Tavares was easily the best player in the game, and his other linemate Spezza had loads of chances. Gagner did the little things to help that line (not to mention some chances of his own) and you can tell him and Tavares have chemistry that goes a ways back. Wasn't a perfect game but he certainly was helping Canada's chances to win much more than he was hurting.

Smyth was rusty and didn't seem to accomplish much, in saying that he didn't stand out for all the wrong reasons either and did some good work in front on the PP. He should be much better tommorow i would imagine.

Seguin started out great and then really cooled after taking a dumbass penalty after a brutal turnover. Other than the goal he wasn't nearly as noticable after the penalty but you can sure see why the Tyler or Taylor debate rages on.

Duchene was very physical and was by my eye carrying his line.

I felt Canada in general was the better team, although it wasn't until the 3rd that Canada really showed up. The OT goal was a tough break but i think Canada looked like a team that was starting to really come into their own.

Those were the things that stood out to me the most.

They were "hired" immediately based on their names and marquee potential.

In case you hadn't noticed it, the non-HFOil discussion can be found here.

Thought the team Canada effort was decent today. Any word on whether Dubnyk will be getting in over Bernier for the next game?

Reputation means something. Go to any big firm and see how much a marquee lawyer costs. How much better is a big name than a normal one? The difference does not warrant the pay scale discrepancies, in many cases.

While I agree it is somewhat unfair, reputation is a factor. Clearly in some cases, it was enough of a factor to mean the "loss" of a job as you put it.

Hopefully he gets something. It's nice to see him with better linemates than JFJ and Omark.

Smyth scores on his patented slapper moments after Tavares had given Canada the 1-0 lead.

He's scored one or two goals like that before. Nice though.
