Looking professional when committing genocide is essential. This is mostly achieved by using a beret.

Olive drab colour ensures the genocider will remain hidden from his prey until it's too late for them to do anything.

Well that was ugly.

So one side will be:

Finland vs Switzerland
Sweden/Russia vs Canada

and the other:

Sweden/Russia vs. Denmark/Latvia
US vs. Czech Republic

The Czech team is pretty strong and the US could be in for yet another QF loss. Actually with the way Canada is playing it could be an all Euro final four. Although I kinda have a feeling that Canada plays with a huge chip on their shoulder in elimination and crushes Russia/Sweden.

I think the Finns ran out of steam a bit, it was their 4th game in 5 days.

Of course, Denmark is also the host country, so that might have given them a little extra hop.

In addition to Canada not being able to score lately it’s pretty much impossible to believe in a team whose goaltenders are Darcy Kuemper and Curtis McElhinney. I know most teams in this format don’t have the best goaltending but... woof.

Battle fatigue, and not taking the game seriously because of the earlier opponents capitulating comically early in each of the previous games.

Defence was sloppy and all over the place, while attack tried too complicated tricks to get the "cool looking goals". I was actually at one point yelling "don't just keep passing the buck around, shoot you loving morons" at the TV.

EDIT: Like the glorious "Curre"-years. When it worked it was like magic, when it didn't it was five guys loving around in the rink, and when someone sooner or later hosed up a pass the opponent scored from the counter-attack.

Let me get this straight, won against Latvia, South Korea, Norway, Canada (5-1) and the US (6-2), and lost to Denmark (3-2), Germany (3-2 OT) and Switzerland (3-2).

Is this our new losing to Sweden, losing to mid-tier countries 3-2?

Sweden doesn't do religion. But if they did, it would probably be the best religion in the world.

6-0 god I love this team, 2 goals in boxplay.


Too bad this will be completely overshadowed by the FIFA WC, especially if we 1-1 germany in the group stage or something.
