Of course it's no surprise at the top to see the Canadians and Russians set as co-favorites to win the gold. As usual Canada is going to have a roster absolutely stacked with elite talent from top to bottom (and they could make a second gold-medal contender with players who don't make the cut). The Russians meanwhile are always blessed with tremendous talent and in this case they have the home-ice advantage, something that helped Canada to gold in 2010.

Despite their silver medal showing in 2010, the American squad isn't in the top three of the gold favorites, indicating they aren't seen as a medal favorite by the odds makers.

The Russians will win Gold, because Canada can't win Olympic gold unless they cheat and use NHL-sized ice, and not Olympic Ice.

Hopefully Canada wins enough Gold to beat out Belarus in the total medal count this time!

Glad you're happy taking a backseat to Canada and Russia in hockey; again.

You're waving the white flag for USA already. Poor guy.

Canada won't do much in Sochi. As I say, put them on Olympic ice, and they fold like a cheap suit.

Watching Canada lose is as much fun as watching the US win. Lately, both have been happening quite often! :)
