And after looking at Oshie's stats, I should replace Van Riems with Oshie.

I still feel confident we can get the gold. Very deep in forwards and goalies. We can score and keep others from getting in the net. Canada's goalies are poor. We should exploit that.

The defense will carry us, that is a good group and you know it's good when you have to leave guys like Keith Yandle and Jack Johnson off.

 

Somewhat surprised that Cam Fowler got in over Yandle.
