    Anything less than a gold medal game appearance for this team would be a big disappointment

    As a NJ guy I should love Gaudreau but he just annoys me. Always whining and has this stupid pouty look on his face. Think it takes away from his play which is a shame.

    Well Finland went to OT so they got a point. If the US loses to Finland in regulation Finland is 1st any other result the US is in first.

    It's remotely likely USA, Canada and Finland can all end up with 19 points.
    Is it then goal difference or H2H?

    Imagine if they could've ran Matthews/Larkin as the 1C and 2C.

    It'd be 1. FIN 2. USA 3. CAN due to H2H if that scenario happens, I think (CAN lost vs both teams and FIN would have to had beat USA in regulation to have 16 pts). If the H2H results in a three-way points tie were equal it would go GD, GF, results vs. lower teams and finally IIHF ranking.

    They could have gone
    Matthews
    Eichel
    Larkin
    down the middle and ran a potential Kreider-Larkin-DeBrincat third line

    McAvoy has been solid on the PP and chipping in with some goals of his own

    All they need to do is make overtime to lock in top seed. Hopefully they can find a way to do that against Finland.

    worst we can finish is 2nd, Canada can not pass us no matter what we do is an awesome feeling right now...With Finland losing to Germany, Tuesday is going to be a massive game as they will be pissed, but knowing that if we win we are #1, if we lose in no matter any fashion we are #2 and that means a still very favorable matchup for us.

    I would rather play the Swiss though for sure and they seem likely to be 4th in the other group. So hopefully we at least force overtime against Finland.

    Goaltending aside, I wouldn't be so cocky as to hope for a second meeting with Canada after 1 shootout win. That didn't work out so well for the Finns in 2016 when they smoked us 4-0 in prelims only to lose to Canada 1-0 in the final.

    we match up well with Canada, always have, both North America teams play similar styles. Nobody is rooting for the US to face Canada, but none of us fear them anymore that is for sure...not here at least.

    I respect your stance on the entire thing and I really don't want to come across as cocky but I mean this is a country that has been to the past 3 finals with 2 golds to show for it. I guess I just can't see eye to eye on how 1 shootout victory over us would erase all fear of playing Canada.

    I feel if there's one lesson to learn in international hockey (and again really not trying to be arrogant here) its that you should never judge/underestimate Canada based on its performance in the preliminary stages of a tournament. There are literally years and years of proof of this backfiring for numerous nations.

    Anyways, good luck moving forward and it would be cool to see a rematch of our two great nations!

    again, I don't see anyone under estimating Canada. I saw one comment that was more tongue in cheek here...those of us who post in the US thread, most have been watching this for years, we have witnessed every ass beating Canada has ever given us, over and over again. we have been through it all, but pointing out a glaring weakness that Canada has in their goaltending isn't anyone taking them lightly, it is a glimmer of hope here. we feel that this is one of the strongest overall teams we have sent here, they have played pretty good, but still another level to reach. if we play Canada at any point in the QF, I firmly believe we have a good shot at winning, not many years we could have said that before.

    I understand. Yea Canada's goaltending is pretty weak this tournament surprising too considering two of the guys on our management team are Martin Brodeur and Sean Burke...two former goalies. You'd think them making calls to goalies in the NHL would make them think twice about saying no..I mean how do you say no to Martin Brodeur giving you a call asking to play for Canada? lol.

    But ya you're right US might have a shot this year, good luck!

    H2h points but Canada has zero and Finland would have six so its still Finland wins in regulation and they are first
