In response to BsLegion's comment:
For all of you on Hamilton's back . which d-man stuck out the most ?
Harrington while was best D on Canada is and was a stay at home d-man along with Hamilton. That's the responsabilty coach Spott gave them.
Murphy and Reilly ? why because they made some rushes up the ice ? They were horrible in their on end and missed on outlet passes all game long.
Were your expections high on the PP with Hamilton ? The PP could not do much as the whole unit looked horrible all tournament long (excpet 5min against the Russians). Bad decisions, bad passes .....
The U.S. dfense will probablt be the best in the tournament production-wise, no other team close. Canada could not compete with them.
those other dmen are not supposed to be the cal. Of Hamilton. Did he hit anyone, was he a star in any game? Hamilton was given the shut down role. i think he will be very good. But he did nothing in this tourney. He needed to be one of the best players every game. He simply was invisible.
The US tender enabled the US def to make plays. But I agree. The US def is the best in the tourney and was talked about as a major weakness for Canada as well as ? Goal tending.
I think up front Canada had the best and deepest fwd lines. great goaltending and solid def were the difference for both teams. One had it. One didn't.
??? Those other d-men Reilly was picked up 5th in last years draft .Not sure what you watched in game1 against the U.S. and Russia , Hamilton and Harrington were dominant. Today .... everyone one was bad therefore to take 1 name out of a bag is just wrong.
Deepest forwards ? not today that's for sure RHN was invisible ! Just proves my point that you cannot choose 1 guy in todays performance.
