Ugh. Wotherspoon and Murphy. To think what could've been.

Still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Yep. I don't like Subban's technical work either. He looks so unconventional (and not in the Timmy Thomas sort of way) in net.

Corrado would have made it better, but we ended up with Murphy...

A little bit. We're getting out worked and outsized. Finland and Russia are going to work Canada on the boards.

Ugh.

Bad period. We could easily be down and it should at least probably be tied.

Murphy isn't playing bad... It's just a mob mentality & our Canuck bias

Was nice to see that Kitchener fan get owned in the main board defending Murphy.

Ugh... That's why I keep the 'bias' about D localized in this thread. Sure, there's definitely sour grapes on our part, but seeing how bad our D has been is like rubbing salt in the wound.

This team is playing as if it were the CHL. Can't win on international ice playing like that. The Germans are grinding and cycling the Canadians to death.

Finland and Russia are going to toast them.

Here comes the German collapse. Canada hasn't looked as good as the score board says IMO


Is it bad I'm more entertained by the ******** Kitchener fan then the game? Hahaha

This team is all one line. Shut that down and you win. Hopefully the other 3 lines will figure things out because they're almost being outplayed by the Germans. Can't play like this against better teams.

Also, none of these defensive pairings have been solid in their own end so far. Hopefully they'll show better in games that matter when facing other top players.

It's pretty obvious this version of Team Canada isn't built to shutdown their opposition. I could see the Russia game being very high scoring.

Subban is terrible. Wotherspoon and Murphy is clearly a bad choice over Corrado. Spotts is moron.

Time for bed! God, I love this tournament so much. I think I even prefer it when it's in Europe. I love the screwy hours!
