Why is Olsen struggling so much?

He did, but he was back quickly after and did have his best game of the tournament. Tomorrow will reveal a lot. I'd still be hesitant to put him out there.

That sums it up pretty well.

Olsen had a pretty decent game compared to the others he's been in vs Swiss, but he's too risky to keep him on the 1st pairing with Ellis vs USA... i'd probably put Cowen instead.

Olsens play has really picked up. Nice to see he's performing when it matters. Hasn't played a lot of minutes but when he's been out theresolid.

Better, but him and Ellis were our worst pairing out there today.

How could you tell? Canada dominated in every aspect of the game.

Best game of the tourney for Olsen so far. He plays like that, and you see why he got on our top pairing in the 1st place.

Olsen was decent tonight, so I'll pay him a little respect for that.
