    McDavids effort has not been lacking, His linemates and defensive pairing def have been, whiffing on shots, tripping over their own skates, taking soft floaters on net, etc etc. Most of the team is in vacation mode. Ekblad has been hot garbage all tournament. This is a 1st overall dman in his 5th NHL season. Looks terrible.

    Damn, it almost seems that Canada wants Russia in quarters

    We will be totally out of gas, while you guys have fresh legs. Smart scheduling i'd say.

    Host team has some say on their own team's schedule and that may affect other teams schedules as there are certain game slots. It is what it is. Finland has benefitted of it in their home tournaments so I'm not going to complain that Finland had 3x back to back games in the group play. Well I sort of did complain about it but you know :).

    After the Finland loss I thought Canada would turn it on but at this point I'm kinda wondering if they have it. But a win in the QF(I assume it will be against a good opponent) could turn things around fast.

    McDavid is playing like one of those guys on a small team where he's the one guy who plays in the NHL and everyone else plays in the Kyrgyzstan 2nd division

    It's so often the case with Canada that they indeed turn it around. Their goalies are pretty bad so I dunno if they are the gold favorites anymore.

    So true. Well put.

    Or McDavid didn't party last night and the others did. Does McDavid drink alcohol at all anyways? I bet that he doesn't.

    I guess playing in Edmonton has hurt his trust in teammates.

    Disappointing tourney for us for sure this year. I can handle losing to Finland but you don't beat Latvia 2-1 in overtime. Yeah, a medal might not be in the cards this year.

    The last time we drew Canada in 1997, you went on to win the World Championship.

    but lets not take it away from Latvia, nearly perfect game. All hail Bob Hartley, a lot of respect to him and Canadians. Canada played 80% Latvia 95%, 1 point really helped us without casualties. good times :))

    To many oilers on this team. Losing is contagious.

    This team is brutal.
