Just not enough 1st rounders on team USA :D
It sucks that they lost, especially losing 1-0. But (now that it’s over)...their HC has bigger fish to catch & fry in 2020...an elusive 3 eyed walleye 😉 Something tDon had on a line, but spit the hook in 2004.
Not Sandy's best coaching job, I would say. Too many of the more productive players didn't play enough.
Can you really blame a tourney like this on the coach? I get it, a coach can manage a shift/game/tourney from a goalie/player management situation, but at the end of the weekend, does the coach play the game? It’s not like these kids are playing their first organized game ever.
Understood, but this was some of the worst player deployment I've ever seen. And I think that's a big reason the tournament didn't turn out well for the Americans. On talent, they were right up there with Russia and Canada (except on D). But Kaliyev, Brink, and Turcotte should have played bigger minutes, and Zegras played just ten minutes in the game he got four assists.

It's very well possible Sandy didn't make the most of the roster without it being a knock on him imho. For all I know he wasn't the difference maker at all I'm casting no shadows, only saying that even if he did make some mistakes the guy's tenure at UMD speaks for itself.

While they've been pretty good in the free wheeling Wisconsin BADgers statbook... they didn't get much done for Sandelin's Team USA.

$ - https://theathletic.com/1511009/2020/01 ... d-juniors/
Disappointments: Alex Turcotte, C, Los Angeles and Cole Caufield, RW, Montreal (United States)

"Turcotte had his moments where his skill and speed stood out, and generally had energy, but a lot of his shifts didn’t result in scoring chances. Caufield struggled to create for himself or others, losing battles and not being in on much offense. For a typically high-end shot generator, Caufield had nine in five games. Some will argue they should have played more; reasonable minds could disagree. But over the course of the tournament they didn’t show enough consistency to warrant more ice time."

Agree on that Slap Shot...Brett Larson’s tenure too (he has the same number of rings as tBob) as an assistant coach. ☝️

Cam York scores to tie it 1-1 in a game the Russians have dominated so far. 5:59 left in the first.

EDIT: Goal credited to Boldy, he got the net front tip.

EDIT2: The NHLN in-studio guys now say it's been changed back to York. what do I know?

Russia 3-1 with 8:50 left in the second. This might get ugly. Knight has not been great in net.

US played better in the third, but were sunk by a disastrous 2nd period

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

I had to re-check because I didn't remember seeing him. He was not on the roster for tonight's game.
