Bahl has played pretty well in this tournament so far, but the rest of the defence for Canada absolutely honks. They look scared and lost out there and weren't much better against the Americans.

Here's the Lafreniere injury. He laid on the ice writhing in pain for several minutes before being helped off by teammates. Couldn't put any weight on his left leg.

Yeah he was trying to create something every time he had the puck and now Canada is just doing lovely dump-ins/turnovers and the game is dead we're all in hell 2019 can't end soon enough.

Group will be very interesting with everybody tied in the standings.

I guess Canada is theoretically in the best spot, I think having Germany-Czech left is better than any of the other teams options. At this point it seems like the goal is top 2 in the pool to avoid Sweden and I'm assuming Finland.

Are the Slovaks any good? My initial thought is that there's a fair drop off between Sweden/Finland and Slovakia but I could be wrong.

Edit- My internet sleuthing of today's scores has led me to the conclusion that Finland is likely significantly better than Slovakia.

That injury looked bad, especially considering his reaction to it, but the latest news on Lafreniere is positive:

Was going to come on to say whoever the Canadian coach is seems to suck all the rear end and was probably some old boys club pick meat heads like Cherry and Milbury would champion. Then realized it's Dale Hunter and figure no wonder everything's been a trainwreck so far.

Lol, the gently caress happened today?


Also, take your hat off because of nationalism or whatever but lol at apologizing to a Russian sports federation for "disrespecting the game" or whatever the gently caress.

Lol Canada in last place after 2 games

It's not crazy to imagine the entire group finishing 2-2 is it?

This tournament is way more exciting when there isn't an obvious punching bag in both groups to make the first four games almost meaningless.

Russia styled all over Canada and the Canadians response is to issue a public apology for "offending" Russia during the aftermath. Fantastic.
