    US men’s team is awful. Jordan Greenway is the only guy worth watching.

    Zapolski has to have that last goal. Unacceptable. I bet he is on the bench when the 3rd period starts.

    I think the US team is the bottomest of the bottom of the barrel scraping.

    I just still can't get over the fact that the US team went so heavy on European pros, rather than college kids. The college kids were BY FAR their best players.

    The more I think about it, the more frustrated I am.

    Leaving guys like Sikura, Middlestadt, Gaudette, McLaughlin etc. etc. behind just seems like such a failure. I get the choice to go with vets - but that's the same safe thinking that got the US crushed in the IIHF Worlds. I tend to agree that, on defense, going with some veteran guys makes sense, but the forward group was just so vanilla. You're limiting your ceiling in not taking the risk with younger but higher upside players and, for a tournament where you have limited time to really put together a team, that just seems like a major misstep.

    Germany and Sweden 3-3 late in the 3rd period, Canada holding on 1-0 late in the 3rd against Finland.
