3-2 final over Finland
Started slow, dominated the middle.
Not an overwhelming US squad, will be hard to pull a medal this year.
Yup, as usual without much practice time it is a lot of individual play.
Finland looked to be a more polished team while the US looked like a bunch of guys out there taking turns making rushes to the net.
They are scary (Finland)
Lengthy and always seem pissed off about something
They'll be a hard beat when the real play starts
There is another Wild prospect to watch for in the tournament. Russian Vladislav Firstov was taken in the second round, the same year as Boldy. He's a left hand shot winger, who supposed to have size, speed, great puck control and high IQ.
For as much as Fenton was reviled in these parts, he sure brought a lot of young talent into the organization in his 1 year.
