He is.

2 assists in 2 games back...+2.

I give Sweden about 15% chance of winning the WJC 2011.

The more I read the more I feel Canada may actually have a chance at Gold.

The US has to be a favourite with the most number of returning players and the least number of players UNavailable.

It is a shame... this tournament punishes countries for success.

SChan,

Stings doesn't it. Nothing worse then having your countries potential, at this tournament, taken away by the NHL.

The same reffing that always sees at least a couple penalties a year go against Canada for too hard of a bodycheck? I estimate Kassian will get called for this at least 3 times.

Watch the entire game. It was called terribly both ways. The others are right though. It is sad when your entire argument is based on a 20+ year old biased video...

Im not gonna blame the reffing this year. I've decided to blame coach Ronnberg for our upcoming failure. He's gonna screw it up fo sho.

markstrom made that a very funny game flopping like a fish out of water

I love when he gets hit by his own guy and when he lays on the ground for like a half hour

and the one legitimate complaint was called then you took a retaliation penalty
