Team USA absolutely dominating Slovakia. Chara is 100% worthless on a big sheet of ice.

Maybe USA GM Ray Shero will trade for him while his value is low.

They've always hated Crosby. Now, you have one of Crosby's boys (at least in their eyes) playing for their team. The butthurt couldn't be greater.

Canadians do not hate Sidney Crosby.

Americans not affiliated with the penguins hate Sidney Crosby.

Kunitz has a history of disappearing on the big stage. Not that he becomes useless, but his game definitely drops off, and he ends up looking like a decent 3rd liner playing on a top line. While he totally deserved to go to Sochi, I'm not at all surprised if he's a major dissappointment there.

Olli Olli Olli.

Kunitz is the Canadian Olympic dog so far. So much so, many respected in the respected hockey media are saying he sits on Sunday.

I was worried this may happen.

Haven't watched either of Canada's games, but how is he struggling so mightily? Just out of sync with Sid? Or not able to adjust to the big ice?

He's playing bad. Turning the puck over, not really doing much else.

Well, he goes through periods in Pittsburgh when he does that. Hopefully he can turn it around before he sits.

I don't see anyone outscoring 71. Especially Crosby. As of the beginning of the tourney, Malkin's linemates were far superior to Crosby's
