Have you been watching the Habs/Pens series?

5-1 seems like a fairly good score to end at for both teams.

Not horrible for either team. Canada didn't really give a 100% and Italy was ok for Italy.

I like what I seen. Solid chemistry from the top 2 lines, young guys like Russell and Cumiskey were great, good special teams, good goaltending. If this team could improve on board play and ease up on the hail mary passes they could really impress.

Every year a few of us have to defend the IIHF tournaments and how they're performed. What some people question is why Canada has to be bothered by playing teams like Italy and Denmark, when really it's used as a measuring stick for the smaller countries, and results can occur as we saw yesterday with Germany. Germany's a bit different than Italy and Denmark, of course, but you get my point. This also happens quite a bit at the U20 tournaments when Canada is rolling over teams like Latvia 16-0. It's not for Canada's sake, it's for the development of Latvian hockey. However, a lot of people don't realize this and think the tournaments should be cut down to fewer teams, which would be the IIHF shooting itself in the foot.
I have never heard anyone say that. What are you talking about?

A good start to the tourney. Nice to see the younger guys play.

I believe they had 11 there too...

What a slow game. Whitney looked good at times.

Italian-Canadians players are still overrated by the coaching staff of Italian national team.

Didn't get to see much of the game but here are the stats including ice time: http://stats.iihf.com/Hydra/230/IHM230B02_74_3_0.pdf

Very distributed ice time, only one guy (Downie) played less than 12 mins, and only 2 (Perry, Burns) played more than 18 mins.

Strazzabosco with the goal!

Pretty much the game I was expecting from both teams, I hope to see a better effort from the Blue Team vs Switzerland though.

Well I was at the game and I'm a bit disappointet that Canada played a lazy game. It was fun that there were so many Germans who cheered for Canada. There were Canada flags everywhere. On the other hand this game makes me feel bad about our own league. The level from Canada was pretty high and they hit pretty well, too. It'll be frustrating to see the low DEL-level again when the WC is over.

I would imagine they wanted to give Russo and Bellisimo a chance to play against the homeland. I would expect Tragust to be back in next game. Russo is a decent goalie and Bellissimo flashed against Canada so I don;t think Tragust would have made any difference in this game.

Duchene continues to look good. Great rookie season, and he's proving he's also not out of place when playing in tournaments like this.
