I'm thinking that the Canadians should have more success than the Russians did due to the high end skill level of their top 2 lines. I guess time will tell, hopefully Subban has a good game and builds off of it.

Not me, hopefully Yak has a lot better game than he did against the Slovaks.

Murphy has been really underwhelming.

Lipion gets a 5 min. major for a check to the head.

What's Don Cherry going to say to Nail now?

As has Rielly. You can see the flashes of skill but he also makes a ton of mistakes in the offensive zone.

Murphy has been horrible though.

Agreed.

On the flip side, the Isles duo of Strome and Reinhart look pretty good.

I'm not sure what to think on Subban though.

For Canada though, we just need to go back to the basics. We seem to be trying to do a little too much in the offensive zone. Need to get pucks to the net.

Could you imagine this team with an NHL season? No RNH and Huberdeau, whose left?!

Would likely mean mackinnon and Drouin playing top line roles.

Best thing to happen to Team Canada. Let the Slovaks scare the crap out of our players before we hit the medal round.

That period couldn't have gone much worse
Canada is just playing bad hockey right now.

Edit: credit to Slovakia they are playing good hockey only one penalty and their goalie is looking great
