Trouba is gonna be a stud. 2018 USA D at the Olympics is gonna be stacked. Vets like Suter, the Johnsons, Yandle, etc combines with Shattenkirk, Jones, Trouba, Fowler, Carlson, McCabe (hey, I'm a homer )...this young group is ridiculously good.
Let's not forget about Ryan

For such a big country that won a gold medal there's some serious inferiority complex going on.

Congratulations USA, you had perhaps the most mature team out there, and deserved the gold.

A to the Swedish team that exceeded expectaions with the silver.

Gibson looks like an NHL goalie.

Lundström and Vikstrand is OK, but I would replace Forsberg with Arvidsson.

Someone needs to teach team Sweden to shot slap shots and especially one-timers.


All they did, especially the defencemen, was to wrist saucers at the goalies from the blue line.

People from the South would love hockey if they were to view it in the proper context. I go to school in the States and converted boys from Mississippi and Louisiana, who were former Div 1 Football and Baseball players, into hockey fans.

EDIT: Congrats to USA, I was cheering for you guys

No it didn't go through the net, but the net seemed not to be ok.

I think our friends to the North need to worry about an arrogance problem. At least when the USA puts together a "Dream Team" they actually win gold.

Yeah, because it was your net and it had a dang puck in it. Don't you hate when that happens?

Lol arrogance followed by inferiority complex. The whole country falls apart when they lose a game.

Always seems to happen when we win.

When Canada wins, it sucks, but hey it's Canada. They are good at hockey. It happens. We don't make excuses for it.

When we win, the story is always what did Canada do wrong.

It was said before this tournament that this Canadian team wasn't a 'dream team'. So when Canada does put together a 'dream team', they do win Gold.

Did the PM have his Canadian hockey Jersey on? Probably is saying ...Canadian Jr. what?
