Five reasons why the USA has an outside shot at winning a medal:
...
5. The USA's power play should be dangerous: Fowler, Goligoski, Johnson and Faulk are all good point men, and Ryan can feast on power-play chances. Okposo has size and scoring ability. This team has the ability to live off the power play. "Getting a lead is always a key factor," Johannson said. "But it magnifies here because (Howard) can shut down teams."

Getzlaf missed the mini-training camp Canada held in Switzerland last week and joined the team directly in Helsinki on Wednesday. He was still feeling the effects of the time change during his first practice with the group at Hartwall Arena a day later.
...
"In these tournaments, there's honestly not a whole lot (to do)," said Getzlaf. "We've got a whole group of leaders and you've just got to kind of lead by example and make sure we're doing the right things. When you're on a team where there's so many leaders and then you don't have to do a whole lot.

"It makes my job pretty easy."
...
Canada opens the tournament Friday against Slovakia, which will also serve as the start of a unique quest for Getzlaf. He has the opportunity to become the first player ever to win the Stanley Cup and gold at every major international tournament -- the Olympics, world championship, world junior championship and world under-18 championship.

This Team USA entry has a good mix of grinders, scorers and talented blueliners. Add to that strong goaltending and the recipe exists for the Americans to contend for a medal. What is very encouraging about this roster is the relative youth here.
...
Team USA has the chance to seriously compete for a medal. As always, taking on Canada will be a test as to how this team matches up in the tournament. And this year is no different.

tuning into the CAN-SVK game (with slovakian feed, which i suprisingly understand, but the language is too funny lol)

Getzlaf skates around with the puck, teasing the Slovaks, then passes it... Perry crashes the net and tries to beat the clock at the end of the 2nd...
yup, nothing changed... good old Ducks forwards :)

Captain Getzlaf picks up an assist on the first goal in Canada's 3-2 win over Slovakia. Perry got on the scoresheet with a 3rd period tripping penalty, which they killed off. game log

pretty cool goals.
i didn't think to record the game to watch it.
Canada's 1.5 periods i saw were kinda disappointing... i wish i saw the game to draw conclusion on US. although Slovakia is a stronger opponent than France...
