I have this gut feeling that the betting scandal will help focus Team Canada. The American media is all over Gretzky, making rather dubious innuendo at times, while the Canadian media is trying to cut him some slack. Canada always plays better when they think that everyone is against them, that no one has faith in them. The best thing in SLC was how they got pasted by the Swedes in Game 1; the game meant nothing but it led to a bunker mentality that was so eloquently expressed by Gretz later in the tourney. Team Canada will win if they play up to their ultimate potential. A siege mentality will only contribute to that goal.
