    I agree, but there will be no way to quantify it. If they don't win gold with her not being there will it only be a small part of the story with how each game played out being the main points of discussion.

    I still can't figure out on what planet Amanda Pelkey makes the team over Alex Carpenter, unless Stauber wants more defensive zone turnovers.

    Size and strength can be important in hockey as in other sports, but as someone pointed out to me here, height is not always the determining factor in who wins. After all a 5' 8" middleweight Harry Greb gave the 6' future heavyweight champion Gene Tunney the only loss of his career in 68 fights. He did it by out boxing the big US Marine and former Ontario lumberjack.

    No more boxing analogies, I promise. I'm just trying to be positive, but still can't understand why they would cut Carpenter and Bozek. It wasn't all a "Dallas" dream I guess.

    They will score, but we will never know how much Carpenter would have increased it. If they get shut out, there will be plenty of heat for the players on the team to take and the coach/GM.

    And if they win without her, then what? Will Stauber be seen as a very courageous risk taking genius? lol

    I wonder how much competition "Team NWHL" can provide as the Olympic Team prepares for SOCHI?

    It's pretty obvious that Carpenter or Bozek didn't get released because of talent. There has to be more to this than bad decision making by the USA staff.

    Next up is Canada, which should be super motivated after losing their opener to Russia. Game time is 6:30am CT, 7:30 ET.

    Another time, just start a thread. When it is a meaningful topic with a decent level of interest, a dedicated thread is deserved. As it is, we'll just get U-18 posts scattered through other threads as people can't find any one place where their comments belong.
