Malkin did look sluggish, but he still managed to bag 6 points for a terrible Russian team, and although I was disappointed with all of them, pretty much cause they aren't Pavel Bure, I'd say Kovalchuk stuck out the most. I thought Ovi played ok by his standards - he definitely could've been better, but he tried to make an impact whenever he was on the ice. I never expected Semin to rise to the challenge - I don't think he's a big time player.

I'd have to say I didn't see Lundqvist being overly exceptional, and I was expecting to see a lot more finishing from guys like Daniel Sedin. With passers like H. Sedin, Backstrom, Forsberg, and Lidstrom, I can't imagine he didn't finish more.

I also think the Selanne line looked terrible - not to bag the Finnish Flash. And what the heck happened to Oli Jokinen? He's friggin horrible this year.

Coaching on the part of Czech Republic I thought was disappointing too (besides the obvious train wreck known as Russia), and although I hate to agree with McGuire (sp), but put a god d*mn center with Jagr. Plekanec or Krejki should've been centering Jagr.

I'm also disappointed I didn't see one real cinderella team. You might say the US, but if you follow hockey, you really should've known they were a really good team and wouldn't exactly surprise anyone - unless of course we're talking about our secret weapon, Zach Parise!

Finally, I was annoyed with certain players antics: Tollefson's hit was disgusting and I hope the wings waive him. Niedermayer really annoyed me with his after the period whistle toss of E. Johnson. Uncalled for...and Niedermayer, phyically - fight wise - you're pathetic. Dan Boyle's slew-foot on Alex Semin was just shameful. If you really need to come up from behind in sneak attack mode to get Semin to the ground, you should hang your head.
