Since 21 out of 25 Olympian's went through the college ranks figured why not start a thread. Here are the seedings. #8 Austria vs #9 Slovenia vs #1 Sweden. #7 Czech rep.vs #10 Slovakia vs #2 USA. #6 Swiss vs #11 Latvia vs #3 Canada. #5 Russia vs #12 Norway. Vs #4 Finland... The biggest break award goes to Russia for drawing the easiest path to the Gold medal final.Looks like USA , Canada semi scenario...

The only reason Sweden is #1 is they were in the weakest group. I'd say that Sweden is the weakest of the top five. Regardless, three of the top five are in the other half of the bracket. They definitely have the toughest road to the Final. The US only has to get by Sweden. The three toughest teams are the US, Canada, and Russia. And I'm ecstatic that we won't see either of the other two before the gold medal game.

I think you misread something. USA would play Canada in Semis.

That's why we wanted the Canada-Finland game to end in regulation. The winner would have been seeded first, the loser fourth. Would have kept Canada, Finland, and Russia on on the other side of the bracket. Sweden was in a weak group and everyone is hurt. Much easier semifinal draw than Canada.

Canada-U.S. semi-final will be epic! Hope it happens. Love all the NCAA content -- even on the Canadian team.

Swiss vs. Canada could be a great game. Stingy those Swiss are. We also have to get by the Cheks as well.

Hope USA play's Canada, and hope we stomp them finally. Is it unfair to want USA and Canada to always be ranked #1 and #2? It somehow just doesn't seem right we won't be playing them for the gold, I was born in '92 so I'm accustomed to us two playing for the gold.

Just so you know, some folks are sensitive about discussing results that haven't been broadcast in prime time TV yet. There's a "Spoilers" thread in the Cafe for that.

So this was Jimmy Fallon's very first joke on the "Tonight Show"........

"The USA-Russia game was very exciting, ending in a shootout. The USA team went nuts in their celebration the day after, the Russian team went....missing. :D"
