LOL at Parise being a secret weapon. I'd have to say it's a toss-up between Parise and Kane for best player on the American roster. If I were building a team right now, I think I'd rather have Parise.
That was awesome. Who was that? Parise, Nash, and then someone else, right?Agreed.
Great win by the U.S. tonight. What a fun game to watch. My favorite part was the back-to-back-to-back breakaways... very exciting.
Speaking of your sig, I thought it was hilarious that during the Czech/Russia game, they mentioned that on the Russian bench they were speaking Russia, on the Czech bench they were speaking Czech, but when they were speaking to each other, it was English, and it wasn't pretty.USA USA USA USA...lol what a great game
No no, I think Bobby Ryan was the last one with the clearest chance so if I didn't remember that correctly, I would imagine you were right on the rest of them. Maybe I just assumed Parise was the first one because I remember it being a difficult backhand shot made easy and then an intelligent player putting on the breaks to poke at their rebound instead of gliding away to the side admiring his shot.Umm... I was thinking Dustin Brown, Thornton, then Bobby Ryan. Maybe I'm way off though. ??
Ouch. What gives with Malone playing so little? I think he played fairly well the first couple of games. I really dislike the way Ron Wilson coaches. He seems like such a d*ck. Napolean on ice...He only played seven and a half minutes, which was the second lowest of any of the forwards, infront of Malone, who played six minutes. Ron Wilson said that he didn't deserve the spot on the line he was initially placed on and moved him to the fourth line.
Your sweeping genarlizations are baseless on this site. Much like your feeble attempt at self-reassurance. USA won that game. Get over it.You Americans and you're false modesty makes me laugh, America has never been modest about anything. Not really worried about Team USA no more then I was Russia, if Canada gets to Miller its over.
I think it was just Ruutu who got 2 and 10. Jokinen showed zero class there, and had that been an NHL game, he surely would've had to answer to a much bigger guy who wouldn't be afraid of being penalized for teaching him a lesson.Yea I saw that. Kane did nothing but skate up towards the net. I dont know what it was all about, maybe he was just mad about the score. But Jokinen did get 2 and 10. Right?
Wasn't it Suter who slid over when he didn't need to? I thought Rafalski was already there and was in the right spot. The first goal he turned it over, but it was a mistake my E. Johnson to toss that puck out to a defenseman in front of the net. I don't think Rafalski was expecting it...especially since he's probably used to his other defensive partner parting the seas, hovering above the rink, and carrying the puck gracefully into the opposing team's goal in that situation, lol. And a forward could have easily collapsed down low - I mean it was ot in the gold medal game - defense should've been a top priority.In Rafalsski's defense, he was on the ice basically the entire game. It seemed like he never came off. Maybe he was a little tired and that's why he ended up out of position in OT.
Awwww it way my boy Parise. He was way too high in the slot, although you're right, Rafalski did lose his head for just a split second not staying goal-side of Crosby. Maybe just a bit tired.And that would have been Parise. He was floating in the high slot area when he actually probably should have been much lower, so I agree with you on this one, too.
