They're more than capable of pulling off an upset or two.
Looking at some of the Slovakian players, that team is pretty stacked too.
I fucking hate the official Olympic website btw. They don't even show the most basic group standings or who's in which group. Anyone know of a better site to track olympic hockey?
The Americans will be tough. They're young, but they have a lot of firepower as well. ANd like you pointed out fancy, they have one of the game's best in Miller.
I don't know about Slovakia. The loss of Gaborik will hurt. It's all about Halak. If he can play as good in the regular season, the Slovaks can definitely put a scare into a lot of teams.
Check ESPN's coverage. Not bad.
