    Not a lot new here, admittedly - thought I'd share to ensure this quick take perspective heard.

    Hasn't this dead horse been beaten enough in the WJC section?

    It really doesn't need to be brought over here too.

    Canada should definitely be concerned that Jeff Skinner unexpectedly made the NHL when he could have been helping the world junior team instead. :sarcasm:

    Judging by the comments in this thread, nobody actually read the article.

    I actually stated as much in the intro here in OP.

    It was, admittedly, more for the common hockey fan.

    Likely not appropriate for most readers here...I'll give myself an a$$-kickin' for posting here! ;)

    It was a 3rd period collapse in one game, hardly something to make you worried about the state of a program in general. NHL teams collapse in the 3rd period of games all the time, it happens. Also, as the article indicates, guys like Duchene, Hall, Skinner, Seguin, Kane, etc. were only not playing because they were way too good.

    The article itself basically says "no, Canada should not be worried," and I agree.

    No.
    I mean... The dynasty Oilers lost a round in 1986, and they were still the best damn team in the league.
