Default Canada vs USA for gold?

I see there is a chance for this to come true. Does anyone else see this happening?

Hmm, I'm pretty sure that Canada won't be able to out score Russia.

Who knows? I really enjoy that there is no clear winner. They all have to play hard each game and it makes for some great hockey. How boring would it be if it was like the women's and it was a guaranteed Can vs USA for the gold?

Ya never really know. I think the only lock we can make is that 2 teams from the big 7 will make it.

I would love that as the gold game though

If i'm looking at the draw correctly, barring any upsets today it looks like a Canada vs. Russia matchup will be next, while USA will likely get the Swiss. The seedings are big right now as for Canada to win gold they will likely have to beat Russia, then either Sweden or Slovakia, and then USA, that's rough for them. That would be 3 tough games back to back to back. USA has a much easier route to the gold medal match. I wouldn't be surprised if USA wins the gold now actually after seeing the potential matchups and i still think Russia hasn't played to it's best level yet this olympics so that Canada vs. Russia game next round could be nasty and just adds more to the Ovie vs. Sid rivalry.

Canada has the players to make it to the gold medal round. even though Russia is Playing very well its hard to play a team with 4 lines of all star offense and big defense. I beleive that it will be a north american rematch with the upper hand going to the U.S.
