Here's the big one, folks, a round early. Bob McKenzie thinks the USA has the edge in goaltending and thinks the PP can be lethal for the Yanks.

OH WHEN THE YANKS (OH WHEN THE YANKS!)
GO MARCHING IN (GO MARCHING IN!)
OH WHEN THE YANKS GO MARCHING IN!

OH HOW I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER
WHEN THE YANKS GO MARCHING IN!

This should be very interesting game. The last time they played in the semis Toews did this.


And back in 2007 the USA had a shit ton of talent on that team and they should have won the Gold that year

Very nice Phil. The Hulk Hogan thing was wicked. My turn.



And now for my personal favourite..


Can't wait for this game! Should be a classic!

I'm so jealous of Canada for the Molson I AM CANADIAN ad campaign. It's just so awesome.

BTW, Visentin was already named the starter for tomorrow's game (as PK88 said elsewhere).

And you know what worse this game in Bufflao is not going to have the support from American fans because Canadian fans are fucking crazy for this tournament.

Man, when the Canadian development camp came to Newfoundland over the summer Roy played lights out. I'm shocked at the piece of swiss cheese that he's become.

That might have just been for the Swiss game, I don't think he was named for the rest of the tournament yet

I've read a ton of scouting reports on him saying he just can't play under pressure. I personally was expecting Calvin Pickard to get the job over Roy until Pickard had a poor camp.

Thankfully, with Team USA, the starting goalie job was never in doubt. Golden Jack Campbell was penned in right away and he's leading the tourney in GAA with 1.03.

Ah. Well, I already saw it on Twitter from some Canadian journos that he was named starter. So, there it is.

I'm not because every year canada sends a goalie to be the starter from the Q they always suck. Back in 2005 Jeff Glass (whl) won it, 2006 Justin Pogge (WHL), 2007 Carey Price, 2008 Steve Mason (OHL), and 2009 Dustin Tokarski (WHL) won. The look back to last year Jake Allen (QMJHL) laid a fucking egg in the Gold and if you look back to 2003 and 2004 Marc-Andre Fleury shit the bed twice and he was a Q goalie

Also when Russia toured the CHL back in Nov. Roy was pulled for letting like 4 goals on like 10 shots

Phil you were right about Visentin, he is staring in this game. I either don't know how to read or being sick is the reason why I missed it.

section 302 row 11 seat 22 for both semi final games at the arena.

Canada would be foolish to start that Olivier Roy. He has been a rebound machine and very shakey. Though Visentin, has not really been tested he has been the stronger of the two. (though that goal by the swiss he gave up was a bit suspect.

One thing i've noticed in a lot of these games is a lot of players when they get hit and it is questionable terms they go down like a soccer player trying to draw a call.
