Aidan Muir isn't scoring. Muir (just getting up in photo after scoring a brilliant goal) plays in the USHL, and the scouting report is interesting. Except he isn't scoring. And that's bad.

Canada will continue its warmup games this morning when they take on Austria. The Austrians will actually try and attack instead of playing sit-back-boring hockey like Norway did yesterday. Canada will score more goals, but Roberto Luongo will likely face a few more quality scoring chances than Carey Price did yesterday.
Micheal Grabner scored three goals in the Austrian's 8-4 loss to Finland yesterday, and along with Tomas Vanek they will present more of an offensive threat, but expect Canada's offence to explode.

I'm completely on board with the necessary checks and balances that come with a project like Rogers Place, but after rattling around the old barn since 1989, I was happy to give cynicism a rest this week when it was announced the $480-million guaranteed maximum price had been met and that shovels will go in the ground in March.

Let's face it. There's nothing wrong with Jeff Petry except he's not Jason Smith. The Edmonton Oiler fanbase likes their defensemen rough, tough, rugged and dirt mean.

Team Canada kicks off its defence of Olympic gold today, facing Norway in what is a late night game in Sochi but an awfully early one on this side of the Atlantic.
