USA. Best defense, best goalies, and the forwards can put up points.

Not to mention USA has some of the most premier defensive forwards on their squad to shut down the Russians. David Backes, Ryan Callahan, Ryan Kesler, etc.

USA isn't a firepower team. They are a grind-it-out and win by a goal or 2 kind of team. We have a few snipers who can make plays when they are needed (Bobby Ryan, Phil Kessel) and so I think it will, at the very least, be a really close game between these two.

USA.

They have the best goalies and arguably the best defence in the tournament. Russia has better offensive forwards, but they lack defence and goaltending. It'll be close, but I take the USA.

USA
Russia

How in the world did the OP get Estonia? Estonia isn't even in the tournament. It should be Slovenia.

Anyway it should be the US,

I honestly don't even think Russia will medal, so I'll go with USA.

The USA plays their best hockey in the biggest tournaments. I think they win the pool.
