    Damn. I didn't know they played so early. I'm used to games being at 330 and 8.

    there are some really good young players, this league has definitely moved to a speed game which lends to youth. 10 years ago there wouldn't have been enough players under 24 in the league to make a team

    So it will be Sweden versus Europe. Canada will play either North America or Russia, depending on if Russia beats Finland tomorrow. The winners meet in a best of 3 final.

    Torterella uses "lack of skill" as an excuse for losing but leaves Kessel, one of the top scoring Americans, off the roster. It wasn't a skill issue, it was a game plan issue. He stated that the team didn't play physical enough. He wanted a bunch of players from the NHL to go out and play dirty hockey against guys they are teammates and friends with, it isn't going to happen. They have enough skill to win any tournament, if it was all about pure skill, the Russians would win every tournament.

    probably so.

    Of all the russians I have played against (a lot as there are several all russian teams around these parts) they are all hands and passing and shelfing.
    The canadians are better players, play better together and may not be as skilled in one area but better overall. I think they skate faster too.
    Americans we seem to be kinda in between both, but so young in it that we cant compete yet.

    He was pretty famous after that

    If you take a look at practice drills on hockey coaching sites you will see the difference in the countries techniques from novice to semi pro. The Russian theory is to force individual skills while the Canadians preach team and coordinated attack. Now this is where it gets weird because if you watch the Russians play in any of these best on best tournaments in the last 10 years, you will notice that they aren't coached to go out and use that individual skill, they are coached to play a robotic team style. Case in point, in this tournament they had Malkin, Ovechkin, Panarin, Tarasenko and a couple others that are without a doubt 6 of the highest skilled players in the NHL and they each only played 14 minutes a game because the coach rolled 4 lines the entire tournament. He took all the skilled talent and sat them on the bench for most the game so he could roll his lines.

    If you have ever watch Ovechkin play you would know that he has to have shots or some body contact before he gets going, he thrives on it. That's hard to do when you're rolling 4 lines and only getting 30-40 seconds of ice time every 4 minutes of game play.

    I feel a little guilty that I was happy Russia won today. Even though that means Team NA is gone.

    Maybe Torts was talking about lack of skill by the Head Coach.

    Just kidding. I couldn't pass that up. Though I'm sure some people would agree with me. I'm biased for Torterella because he got some wins out of the Blue Jackets who looked like they couldn't win a game. And he's entertaining. Team USA really shit the bed this tournament though.

    I liked it as well, I think NA would have had a better chance at beating Canada. The Russians look bad but playing Canada might bring the best out of them.
