Already 1 game into the tournament, team canada is gelling together and looking good! Through three periods, Bernier has shut the door with great defensive help in front of him. Sutter and Legein are also getting noticed with their physical play.
The Fourth Period reported several rumours about Ray Shero discussing trades with Ottawa for Vermette, Marian Hossa from Atlanta, Micheal Ryder from Montreal and J.P.Dumont from Nashville.
from HTR to you and your family … Merry Christmas and best wishes to you on this special day.
