Quick question this morning - when you saw that Slovakia upset Sweden last night, what part of that brings the best news? Is it the Canada doesn't have to face the reigning Gold medal winners, or is it that Alfie gets to go home and have an extra week of rest?
I'm pumped for Canada, but had Sweden won last night, they would have locked in two more games - the semifinal and either the gold or bronze medal game. Now, Alfie gets the extra week of recovery. That's just as brilliant, as far as I'm concerned. Especially considering Canada was like a high speed freight train last night.
