    The situation in Toronto is similar to a carcass on the savannah and a buzzard. The buzzard is squawking and flapping its wings to try to scare them, but the hyenas as closing in.

    Well, at the tops and where the puck stops ... ;-)

    I am hot and cold on Ferraro and agree with you.

    Glad the Swedes scored but, really, they play like they're playing against the competition they usually play against and making ridiculously fancy and tough touch-pass plays, etc. Why can't they wake up and play it simple? And Nylander ... he stops skating when not carrying the puck in Russian's zone. De La Rose does not look that bad, though he needs to stop just dishing the puck to Blidh, and try to make something more happen. See! As I type! Near miss. Medal round is where I start to feel bad for kids, poor Swedish goalie. Though I felt bad for Denmark's goalie too.

    I know that is conventional wisdom but I'd suggest with the depth / speed of this team that they might be confident enough to play Fucale vs. Den. while fully expecting to play Comrie for any game awarding a medal. And, yes, this game stages them for a medal shot so it could be seen as the medal round. If I understand the format which is not a given. Cheers.

    Rocket Surgery is a internet amalgamation of the two sayings and intended. I had to look it up the first time I came across it. Frightfully common.

    With the camera work, I thought it was hard to pin the blame for the after whistle crap on either team but was inclined to see the U.S. as the aggressors ... though who knows what provoked it. What soured me was the referees' lack of inclination to do anything about it. And Nurse's penalty was symptomatic of the lack of team discipline in that regard. Domi is the son of a person lacking a lot of character if you don't define character as the willingness to put fist to face. He is undoubtedly skilled, however. Bobby Clarke? But perhaps I type too soon. It bothered me that Canada played the U.S. as though they were Slovakia instead of simplifying the game and putting more shots on net and looking for rebounds. I have already been laughed for thinking this due to the shot total for Canada but 5-3 in the final minutes with two empty netters has me thinking Canada nearly lost this one instead of winning it. Agree about Comrie. Had my respect and trust until that Larkin goal. But I know neither player well enough to really have an opinion. I fear the Denmark start is a consolation prize, though. Undisciplined after the whistle and needing two empty netters to win it. I get this is a 1% problem but ... it's there. :-) And I'm glad and privileged to cogitate on such issues.

    I have the sinking feeling that the Denmark game is a bone being thrown to the goalie who is not going to play in the medal games ... I hope I am wrong though I honestly don't have the knowledge to judge the better goalie. I keep hearing about Comrie's superior rebound control but then he lets in that soft goal ... no rebound. Pulling for Fucale because he is a Habs prospect but not at the expense of the team.

    Trollish? Maybe. Textbook troll? Disagree. Agent Provocateur for sure. But as Mavid pointed out on the previous thread, an honest and heartfelt contributor even if his grit size tends toward large.
