    For just Canada.
    In the Canada/USA game I say 6-2. USA will play Canada hard but that defense is atrocious I think. USA just doesnt have any new guys to represent them anymore. And Robert Exche is going to be peppered.

    Canada/Russia should be 6-3. If Khabibulin or Nabakov were there I'd say 5-4 or something but that goaltending is weak.

    Canada/Slovakia I'll say 5-1. Enough snipers on the Slovaks to ruin a shutout.

    The best game might very well be a Canada/Sweden game in the playoffs. Sweden is always solid and I think on paper is 2nd to Canada. Although you can never underestimate a Canada/USA or Canada/Russia match if the stakes are high.

    The U.S. defense is "atrocious you think"? Anything to base that on except blind homerism? No new guys? Who cares? This is a two week tournament. Veterans will be important. Save the "new guys" for the 2006 Olympics.

    If anything he's giving too much credit to the US. No way that their aging corps of forwards will put up 2 goals.

    6-0 is more likely.

    LOL ;)

    Canada might have one big win, but no way three. Hell, we only beat Germany 2-1 last time. I'm optimistic about us winning the tournament, but I think it's impossible for any team to steamroll the competition.

    These informations are little bit easy-minded i think, even after that controversial Canada's win at this years World Championships. Slovaks are well energised and wants to shoot a revenge. But, who knows.. The rosters are completly other on both sides. :shakehead

    Brett Hull isn't an aging forward? :dunno:

    In retrospect 6-0 might be too kind, after all in the Gold Medal game Team Canada managed 5 goals against Mike Richter, who was a far better goalie than Esche, Conklin or Dipietro. 8 or 9-0 might be more realistic.

    LOL again

    LOL I think your going to be dissapointed. Its not out of the question that Canada could win all the games but at a combined score of 17-6 no way.
