Will Canadian Dinosaurs Rule

from the IIHF,
The crackdown on obstruction has changed the game, perhaps forever, and closed Jurassic Park. International hockey has never been so exciting as here in the Olympic Preliminary Round. There is no more time or room for the slower defensemen to rest or breathe. They can't hook and hold the forechecking forwards. The game is now so fast that you have to move your feet every second of every shift in every game. A Petteri Nummelin can have the same impact on the result of a game as a Chris Pronger. Most of all, Team Canada needs better, faster, smarter play from their defensemen. Someone needs to step up like a new Bobby Orr or a new Paul Coffey.
