08:23 AM ET 12.25 | As part of the same pool at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship, which begins in Ufa, Russia, on Dec. 26, Canada, the United States and Russia will square off in the tournament's first round. "The Americans," says [Team Canada's head scout Kevin Prendergast], "have really closed the gap. Big, strong and physical. We have to go over there and earn the medal. We've got our bulls-eye on our back." ... "[The Swedes are] gonna be very, very tough. The Americans? Big. Really big. I couldn't believe how big they are looking at the roster. It's going. From our standpoint, we're going to have to turn the cheek a few times against them, but overall I think our skill is better than their skill."

Well there's wrapping everywhere, the dog has stopped freaking out. Sitting with a cup of coffee while the family thinks up a name for this year's turkey. "Bettman" is the leading choice so far!!!!

Wow, i came on here to post the exact same comment, and then i read yours. I mean, the exact same comment. That is great. But the headline is a bit misleading, the Canadian coach sounded much more complimentary than what the headline suggested.
