No question the US coaches made MANY mistakes in their selections, no Ryan, Johnson, Thelen, Earl. I said before the tourney that US hockey is so political at the expense of winning, and it showed. I do have to question the coaches. Sandelin has taken a UMD team pre season to finish first to the lowe half of the standings, then took a US team thought good enough to medal to NO medal at all, even playing worse as the tourney went on. Quinn had just as much say, so I have to ask, who the hell is making those decisions? I desperately wanted a Canada/US game, but I bet the US is glad they didn't have one. How could these coaches be SO WRONG? The US team actually got worse as the tourney progressed, that's poor coaching. Just personal thoughts.
