A day after one of the biggest wins in U.S. Hockey history, Ryan Kesler, talked about playing in a game that was “fun”. Can Team Canada say the same thing with the immense amount of pressure that they have on them to deliver a gold medal while playing on Canadian soil? Probably not, and that’s why Team USA is fun to watch, because the entire team is having fun.
Team USA is less than a week away from getting a chance to show their stuff in Vancouver, Canada. When the brain trust put this team together they made sure the leadership group was strong. Rather than placing a lot of pressure on a player like Chris Drury, they will rely on a proven winner in Jamie Langenbrunner.
