I watched 2 games today, Canada Russia and USA Finland. I rank the 4 teams as follows: Finland USA Russia Canada Finland - effort, high speed USA - combination speed and strength Russia - some new skilled players Canada - every now and then the defence totally crumbled, this is unacceptlable. It was like they occassionally fell asleep. I invite anyone with better hockey to comment here and correct my observations and tell me I'm wrong. But, keep it simple so I can understand you.
