    Show no mercy. And please for the love of God don't go to a shootout. I'm still pissed off from the last time we lost to US in the shootout back in 2017 :laugh:

    Think Canada will completely demolish this US team. Very opportunistic vs the finns but they struggled with the hard checking and I'm not impressed by their defense as a whole. Very few of their star forwards play well through traffic. Unless the canadian team is hit with nerves or Knight stands on his head, he clearly has the ability, this should be a Canada win.

    I know it's just the world Juniors, but gotta be pumped if you are Florida. Lundell, Levi and Knight all playing big roles for their teams.

    When is the last time a team had two draft picks be starters for their Countries? Let alone the two gold medal goalies.

    Too bad they are goalies.

    Long gestation period when anything can happen.

    To echo the sentiments of the poster above me.

    For whatever reason it seems like goalies who kill it at the WJHC seem to struggle to become impact NHL netminders.

    It’s likely due to the gestation period for goalies as most usually don’t crack an NHL roster until they’re well into their 20s.

    Pogge, Furcale, and Montoya are perfect examples of this. They have a combined 175 NHL GP with Montoya having 168 of those.

    But then again this may be perception over fact because for each Pogge or Furcale there’s a Hart, Fleury or Luongo.

    I was thinking last night about Levi and how it would be nice to have a top goalie coming up the system. Then they show a stat saying he was potentially going to beat some record set previously by Justin Pogge. Who? Had to look him up, did nothing in the NHL.

    You just never know with goalies.

    Fucale was drafted high in the draft and was highly touted but I don't recall him being good at the WJC

    I don’t see it with him. He looked like a guy you pick in the third round not a top ten pick.

    Sure he did, he made Tukka Rask expendable and they traded him to Boston for Rycroft

    Lol, someone seriously didn't claim a 3.8M prize in the 50/50? This seems extra bad because the sellers of the tickets know exactly who bought them. This isn't like giving random paper tickets.

    Oh well, last 50/50 is gonna be a big one!

    Honestly when they named Podkolzin as the player of the game yesterday, I was like WTF. Then I asked myself, "Who should of been the player of the game?". I think there was some guys who were better than Podkolzin yesterday but no players really stood out in anyway. Maybe Afanasyev? I dunno. You arent going to win many games when none of your players stand out. Canada was just too good.

    the thing with the Canadian goalies is they only ever need to make 5-6 real saves in a game, they are rarely challenged. so its hard to get a good read on them

    Normally I would be torn over this game (but still root for Canada to win) but will be cheering 100% for Holloway to bring home the gold.

    The word that you are looking for is Ono. Aloha can mean a lot of things, but delicious is not one of them.

    Canada should take this. From what I've seen from the US, their forwards aren't spectacular along the boards or in traffic. Zegras, Caufield, and Kaliyev are all very dangerous when given time and space. Take that away and play them closely and most of their weapons are neutralized.

    5-2 Canada.
