What are you talking about?
They lose one game to a team they've just beaten and suddenly the sky is falling?

I labeled this team as weak sauce a week ago.

The Canadain collapse in the WJC is become a tradition just like winning the gold medal was.

The team is in dire need of some Eberle magic.

I really hope the lockout is over in these next few weeks because if this continues it will leave a bitter taste in the back of my mouth.

The worst thing is that there are no excuses. Americans have had better goaltending, defence, offence and they are working harder. The officials missed 1 call but they can't be blamed either.

Canada is known for comebacks in these games though so I won't write them off yet. Definitely not looking good though.

Nathan MacKinnon = 1st overall pick my ass. When was the last time that we've seen such a no show from the guy that was favored to be the #1 pick at the WJC's?

I agree

The way Gibson is playing I don't see a comeback in order, but they have done things before, as a fan I hold out hope but it's being tested this year.

Head coach Spott said about the Americans yesterday: "We've got a good book on them..."

So if you got a good book on them but still losing to them badly, do you really know how to coach?

This is an embarassement. How is Murphy even seeing the ice with 7 dmen? He is clearly in over his head as evidence by his mistakes and being exploited every shift. Yet it seems he is out there every other shift. That is on Spot and its pretty obvious he played favourites to pick him and spoon feed him ice time at the expense of the team.

Oh ya, and tradition of pulling goalies on world juniors ftw. Not all Subban's fault but in these big games you need to be close to perfect.

Uh, yes, the media have been reporting on the decline of Canadian hockey for years. Where have you been? And to add salt to the wound, it coincides with the Americans arriving as a perennial superpower.

Except he forgot to write Canada's book for the game, some of the guys look like thu drank horse tranqulizers before the game

Well the latest #1 pick has been a virtual no show in this tournament so i don't think this tournament is indicative of where MacKinnon should be drafted nor should it.

I bet that RNH gets the blame for this loss on the main board for bringing his Edmonton losing mentality to the Canadian team when in reality, the entire team is getting horribly outplayed.

No doubt, completely invisible and when he does have the puck he does very little, if I were to base his draft position on this tourney I'd say he will drop possibly to 3-5, but this tourney doesn't decide all

You don't see him because he doesn't get played. Tough to get any feel for the game when you play 40 seconds every 10 minutes.

It's going to be bad... but we've had to shield ourselves from a lot of barbs and arrows over the past six years. Whatever.

It's 1 really bad game, typical overreaction by you.
I'm sure that the Canadian team will be the favorite next year with plenty of young talent coming up. I highly doubt that results like this will be the norm for Canada

PPG is no show?

Nice try, and really poor taste to pick now to dump on Yakupov.

Canada has had plenty of these efforts over the past several years.

What? I was chuckling at the notion of this being the best Canadian junior team since 2004/2005 all December.

Mark Schefile is not doing himself any favours with his play.
