If you're Hockey Canada, you HAVE to fire the entire management and coaching group if Latvia does manage to win.

Hockey Canada had Vlasic on the point on the PP, apparently, never under estimate Canada's ability to not understand what they actually have to do.

How do you explain the club team performances then? Pros vs pros?

You can the CCCP team produced fraud players and teams I guess, but a pretty silly view, and not shared by for instance people like Wayne Gretzky who might know a thing or three.

I don't get why Subban hasn't been in the lineup against the defence first teams. And then have Hamhuis against the more open teams.

Canada is playing "safe" because "something something something something"

Honestly, if you can find more Honest logic with THIS MUCH talent, find it, because I can't, it looks silly.

part of me want to see them lose just to see the faces on Team Canada's management then try it convince us that "every team left is a great team and can win the tourny"
lol

This is like Germany playing Canada to a 1-1 draw in World Cup football play going into the final desperate minutes.

Would never happen.

But oddly it does to Team Canada in hockey..

ps nice attempted finish there Crosby..

sigh

So... if we get out of this one alive, who do we play for Bronze? There's no way this team makes it to the gold medal game.

This team can't beat the US. I mean they SHOULD be good enough to, however they aren't and won't.

**** it. These guys want to bring Subban, and not play him, but put are still giving Kunitz TOI? We brought over a guy like Duchene, for what reason? Why? Nash is still given ample time, besides doing absolutely NOTHING.

They deserve to lose.

Also, we make fun of Czech management, but Canada gets off scott-free?

Is not goal, or atleast it seems that way, Canada needs to push harder.

If Canada gets a penalty shot off this review, that's a travesty, honestly.

This Latvian goalie deserves the gold medal by himself.

I know that was illegal, but he's been standing on his head this entire tournament.
