1. We seem to have hit our stride in the mid-90's where it seemed everyone was in their prime, coming into their prime, and slightly passed it. I remember telling my buddies at the time in '96 that our D was superior, Richter could still make a run, and our prime time forwards were 24-30 in age. 2. Our defensemen can't move the puck or their feet. 3. We are totally dependent on our goaltending right now. Both games should have been 4-1, at least. 4. Our powerplay, even though they've scored both goals I think, has me swearing at my television. Why all the unnecesary dumpins, with no forecheck, which leads to icings? 5. I don't see this team getting to the finals. In fact I rank them so far behind: 1. Canada, 2a. Finland, 2b. Sweden, 4. Slovakia, 5. Russia. I'm sorry, but I don't even see semi's for a team that hasn't even registered an even strength goal yet in two games.
