Canada Loss Alarming via 2013 World Juniors Viewing Guide - THW WJHC Headquarters

Intro:

"It’s the most hockeyful time of the year.

Hockey fans look forward to Christmas; Die hard hockey fans look even more forward to Boxing Day and the start of the World Junior Championships!

This is hockey at its finest. Players playing with that youthful passion for the game and that sense of national pride that one can only imagine they get when donning their country’s colours. Fans cannot help but get caught up in the emotion evoked by the intense and exciting action that naturally ensues."

I'm confused.

Looking for revenge due to a 6-5 overtime loss to the United States in last years Gold Medal Game, Canada emerged with a 2-1 win over the United States in their first meeting at the 2013 WJC
Last years gold medal game was between Russia and Sweden.

2010 we lost 6-5 to the US in OT.

What has happened to Canadian junior development in the last 10 years?

From dominating everyone in the last lockout and going on a 5 year streak for gold to losing and being dominated by the US 5-1 in the semi finals of a best on best WJC.. what has happened?

Everyone has gotten better the last few years, the interest have never been as high as it is now. I still believe canada has the "best" team most years but in a best of 1 tournament there is alot of variance.

Well, one thing I noticed is that coaches such as Pat Quinn and Brent Sutter have become Willie Desjardins and Steve Spott

Certainly the lacklustre coaching, particularly this year, is part of the problem.

Agreed. But it's been goaltending above all else. Subban's sparkling .750 save percentage today speaks for itself.

Other countries are producing better teams now and just because Canada is Canada does not mean they will win every game. Plus we have Olympic Gold. So we are doing something right and I know someone will say that is 3 years ago. Canada still produces that best players in the NHL. You can take that to the bank.

Talent goes up and down. All nations have good and bad years of players, in those years canada were in a peak while other nations were not. Hence, they dominated.
But now when other nations are starting to produce better players, Canada has gone down a little and is no longer the best team.
Its nothing special. They might bounce back in a few years. Or not, only time can tell.

I'd like to say other nation's programs are catching up rather than Canada going downhill.

Nothing has happened - Canada still produces the most top players of all the countries. Just goes to show that level of competition has improved a lot.

Increase in level of competition. Canada has been fairly consistent.

Blaming the goalie for such a lackluster performance by the whole team is pretty ridiculous imo

Did you watch the game?

Subban got beat on the first two cause there was tons of traffic, and the second two were just snipes after making the Canadian defensemen look stupid

I think Canada went 7 straight WJC without winning a Gold Medal before 2004, they then won 5 in a row.

I agree, all you had to see was the Swiss put a scare in Russia yesterday and the fact Finland is in relegation. There is a more level playing field...I don't think Canada is slipping as much as the rest of the world is catching up. It's called progress...
