    5-0 Canada, Canada will bring their A game after receiving a wake up call from the Swedes. Switzerland has some skill but they're giving up too much size and speed to really compete. Getting it by Conz will be Canada's real test this game. Hopefully Visentin can get into the flow of things and have a good game.

    I think Kassian will have a huge game today.

    It's time for #22 to step up. And no, I'm not talking about Tyson Barrie.

    I have more faith in Visentin than Roy...but I don't really have a ton of faith in him either at this point. Despite what the shot clock said, Norway didn't have many chances. They probably only had one above average chance and it ended up in the back of the net.

    Visentin is going to have to do more than just make the routine saves today.

    Agreed. Goaltending is definitely Canada's biggest problem along with the defense running around the zone.

    I have more faith in Visentin, but he wasn't THAT impressive either.
     
  10. I think Canada wants a piece of the US so bad, they will come out and dominate the Swiss.

    I'm going to say 7-1 Canada (no disrespect to the Swiss, I just think the Canadians will be possessed)
     
  11. Hamilton scores 2 goals and gets demoted to the 4th line......

    As long as the boys play hard and smart we should win. If the Swiss get the lead it will be a tight game. Hopefully we get the saves we need.

    Nice to have Kassian back. I'd really like to see Oslen used as the extra defenseman. He has been atrocious this tournament and we can't afford any more GA because of his large amount of costly errors.

    Are those really going to be the lines for Canada? I figured that Hamilton would stay up with Schenn and Johansen. Also didn't Bobby Mac say that Kassian would be at centrer today?

    Canada needs to employ the cycle and establish a forecheck, if they are able to do so they will win. If SUI prevents them from doing so (like SWE) then this will be a tight game.

    With all due respect to the Swiss, Canada should be just fine if Visentin makes the routine saves today.

    I think the Swiss will take the Canadiens by surprise.

    6-4 Swiss.

    That will surely be a surprise - considering the Habs are in Montreal...

    Canada 6-1.

    Kassian will have a huge game. The PP will be much improved with him back, as well as his physical presence will be felt.
