Seven little Phil Housleys on the back end for the USA, strong play at the blue line is always impressive to watch. Gibson was more than up to the task, and the offense finally got going these last two games. Grimaldi gave me a few heart attacks with those blind passes - other than that, not really a whole lot to gripe about.

Perhaps it is time to stop the TSN/CBC ratings-and-advertising-fueled shitshow up there leading up to the WJC? I can only imagine 'the panel' trying to decide which of these kids most failed his country. Probably pillory the coach as well.

On thing for the US kids, nobody outside of college hockey knows this tournament even exists. Granted, they don't get as long of a camp before the tourney starts, but they sure look more loose out there.
