Hmmm not sure what your looking at, but Canada beat the CR first game, not Finland. 2nd game they beat Kazhakstan 15-0.....
Big game new years eve, Canada vs USA, winner gets a bye to semi's.
Sweden is really good, and the Russians always have a solid team. USA probably has the best number 1 line in the tournament, but I'm betting on a Sweden vs Canada final, Canada taking gold for a 5th straight year.
Players to watch:
John Tavares: Number 1 pick in the NHL, not the greatest skater in the world, but boy can he shoot.
Victor Hedman: 6'6 swedish defenceman is probably the best defender in the tournament, if anyone is taken number 1 over Tavares, this is him
Ryan Ellis: Small defenceman, actually right now is basically only playing on the powerplay...But when you talk about "quarterbacks" of the powerplay, he is the prototype. Scouts say they haven't seen a defenceman who can move the puck this well in the CHL in 20 years. Watch out for his pump fake on the pp. Currently a top 10 pick, but would not be surprised if he moves up to top 5
