    You don't even need to watch it. Canada won before the game even started.

    Right because the only reason people watch WJCs is to find out who wins the games...

    Personally I couldn't care less who wins this tournament, the only reason I watch it is to evaluate prospects.

    Not so fast. Thomas Vanek will own Canada tomorrow.

    You'll see.

    My prediction:

    Austria 417, Canada 1

    ...but, Canada holds Vanek to 401 goals, 16 assists.

    Paille scores for Canada.

    with ore without vanek, he can play like a god, it doesn´t matter, the austrian team has lost 7-8 important players from last years squad (to old - 83), so, nice to be in finnland ..... but we will lose!

    hopefully canada shows some mercy .... this team is to young and unproven!

    Canada 2-0 in Exhibition --- hopefully they can carry these two wins into the tournament. Not sure who scored for Canada but will dig around.

    Looks like Phaneuf was unstoppable today (1G, 2A)! Hope he keeps that up!

    As things stand right now, Canada will be in over their heads against Finland. The Finns absoultly crushed Austria and limited them to only 10 shots on goal.

    I really expected a more dominant performance by Canada against a team that will be back in the B pool next year.

    My prediction for Friday's game: Finland 3 Canada 0. (only Fluery's heroics will keep the score this close.)

    The one thing we learn every year is that the exhibition games mean jack squat.

    Another thing to take note, Canada rarely plays well against extremely inferior opponents.

    to add to your comments, canada never plays with full emotion in those exhibition games. Wait till the first game well see some bodies fly.

    I think it's encouraging that a completely different group of players scored the goals today. It shows that the team is multi-faceted, and any one of them can put it in the net on any given day.
     
  19. So you're basing this on two meaningless exhibition games?

    As somebody already mentioned, according to your logic, the Americans are already toast....and the Russians lost to a senior team in Russia, so I guess they're gone too right?

    What I am saying is that Finland is a team to be reckoned with and if Canada plays anything like they did against Austria today, then yes they will be toast.

    I still stand by my prediction of Finland 3 Canada 0!!

    The difference will be that Canada will not play like they did against Austria. They will play harder and better against the Fins. Canada goes easy on inferior oppents and it was exhibition which means the game was meaningless.
     
  22. And just how do you know what Canada looked like against Austria?

    If your location is correct (Michigan), on which network did you watch this game that was not even televised in Canada?

    Now that's funny.

    Canada does not tend to define themselves by their performances against drastically weaker teams. Sure, if their pp sucks, that's cause for concern; but if all lines are doing their jobs and getting warmed up, then a 6-1 score is nothing to be ashamed of. Far from it.
    That said, they won't be riding these two insignificant wins into boxing day's contest. They will be nervous as he** for the first few shifts but will hopefully win.

    I say Canada 4, Finland 2.
    Go Dawes. Go Canada (and Ukraine).
