Canada couldn't even get bronze with the team we had. I know they are just kids, and it is a showcase for their draft status, but if it was up to me I don't want Canada playing in the tournament next year. Not sour grapes, but the pressure is too much on these kids as we are known as a hockey factory. Congrats to USA by the way, they kicked butt.

Canada needs to develop some speedy players, canadas game relies on gritty hard working type players. The rest of the world has caught up to the canadians in how they train players. The CHL has lots of european players. They come over to learn the style of play that the canadians are use to. I love watching this tournament, it was an excellent tournament.

I would argue that speed wasnt the problem as much as defense and goaltending.

6 game tournament no time for bullshit excuses the best players didn't go and it started from the goalies out.  Laurent Brossiot form the Oil Kings is a game stealer should have been in net.  Hes won like 8 straight since being cut with 1.00 gaa and a 963 s%.  I don't think Subban is bad or anything he seems like a good kid but he shouldn't have been dubbed starter like that.
