At least Roenick is in Sochi to show this team how to properly destroy a hotel room after a loss...

Goal three. Screen. Whatever.

What a bunch of losers on this team. And to make sure, I'm not just mad at only Quick here. Hard to be mad at only your goalie when you haven't scored a goal in 120+ minutes. But this post is purely observations on Quick's game, today.
Anyone blaming Quick for today's loss have no clue about goaltending or hockey in general. Team in front of him has been brutal.

Bobby Ryan's also been awful since his Olympic snub. He's had like 2 goals since. Pulling his inner Brian Savage.

Is the USA flying back after this game ends? Finland has to stay around for the medals tomorrow but I don't see why the US would stay another day. At least it would give Mac, Cally, and Step an extra day to get adjusted to the time change.

At MOST, you can put Goal 2 on him for being too far out of his crease...

The rest is all on the defense...

And hey, the offense too.... maybe we could score an answering goal for once.

The coaching was awful even during the wins.
Team USA did not show up today.
Patrick Kane is getting his comeuppance today.

AS I SAID

I'm not blaming Quick for the losses, obviously. Who in their right mind would blame the goalie when their team is getting shutout on the regular?

I was saying I have a problem with the way Quick played on goals 1 and 2 for Finland. Don't see how anyone can argue otherwise. To each their own.

At this point there is no jump in this team's game....almost wouldve been better off with Kreider on the ice than some of these guys. I feel like were watching tortorella hockey. A lot of dump n chase, bump n grind. The decisions around this team are puzzling.

Buff, Johnson, and Ryan shouldve been out there.

Agreed. Quick was bad on those goals. He just was. He has played well otherwise.

Karlsson's never had the quality of teammates Lidstrom had. Plus he's putting up the best performance by a Swede ever as a defender in the Olympics IMO. Keep in mind, he's carrying a team with injuries and key roster exclusions.

Flat and lifeless. The leadership group and coaching staff of the 2010 team did a much better job of making sure the team puts forth a consistent effort each night. There's no excuse for a team with so many hard-working energy guys such as Kesler, Backes, Cally, Parise, etc. to give up like this.

How is goal 1 not his fault? It was a bad bounce. McD forced Salanne to the outside
