CANADA
Dany heats up and Marcel Dionne passes the torch

Radim Vrbata is totally radical, dude, and Radek Duda would agree if he was here

UNITED STATES
Citizen Kane is a classic

5.

FINLAND
A fine start: let’s see how they Finnish

6.

SLOVAKIA
Sure, they have a Hossa, but they could use a Crosby

7.

SWEDEN
A 6-5 win is great, if it’s over the Soviets in the 1987 Canada Cup

If only Ottawa had played France in the playoffs

9.

DENMARK
If we’d kept up our first-minute pace, we’d have beaten the Czechs 60-0

BELARUS
Hope you saved some goals for the rest of the tournament

SLOVENIA
Kopitar was right about “five goals” - too bad Canada scored them and not him

Mamma mia, those Russians are faster than Ferraris!
