    I'm not a fan of Group B. We get to play Norway, Austria and Finland. Other than facing Tuuka Rask (Tuuka's Wrath?) the Canadian team is not going to get a true test until the knockout round. Honestly, does anyone think Finalnd (WJCs notwithstanding) is a contender? Russia, Canada, US, Sweden. Then second tier is Finland, Czechs. Would have preferred to play one of the contenders in a preliminary game.

    Yah well in 06 they lost to the Swiss which screwed them for the rest of the tourny, killed their confidence. So beating up on some lesser nations with the Finns being a real test isn't a bad thing.
