Okay, a couple of days after the big win and the excitement has worn off I have to say that regardless of a gold medal, I am disappointed.
The US team came out hungry for a win as did the Canadians. The US definately had a speed advantage but lacked in the maturity of their game. That is the drawback to a young team. Miller was outstanding.
The Canadians though, always took control of the games up front and the pi$$ed away the lead by turning off the offence and leaving the game to defence and goal tending. Slovenia is a good example as is the gold medal game.
After the Canadians had a two goal lead in the final game, they were basically on a time killing mission with no work from the offence other than dumping the puck. It was 30 minutes of penalty killing. You just don't win many games doing that.
The US had gained momentum and Canada is lucky to have won.
"Own the podium" does nothing to develop or inspire over paid NHL prima donnas.
