Swiss is more of a favourite to me than Czech, otherwise I think the same.

I would be cautious here, it is very difficult to make the SF just ask Canadians they have been unable to make them in the the last three years.

Their last title: 2007 and last medal: silver in 2009. So don't blame or conclude too quickly with the Swiss.

Makes me ill thinking all we had to do was beat Slovakia and Team USA would be playing Germany for a spot in the semis. But instead we decided to mail one in and now have to play Russia for that same spot. Nice job, Team USA.
How does that comment have anything to do with this?

Vast majority of Canadians don't care. See the Canadian teams' forums. The people you see post in these threads are the only ones who care.

Seems like they are one of the favorites after today's win. If it's all about survival they proved you wrong, if it's all about domination they still are the best in the tournament.

I don't think they'll win gold, I want Canada to win, but I don't discount excellent play when I see it.
