I know Belarus is serious about hockey. The president is a hockey player for fucks sake. I expect them to have a legit team.
But what to make of Finland? Last Olympics they were by far the best team even though they lost in the finals. 2.5. Would love to bet Belarus in an opener, but it feels like the Finns are coming into the tournament underrated.

Hey Matt. Who decides what size rink they play on? Is it always nhl size when Olympics are in North America?

Dunno, reno. I think it's the first time a NHL-sized rink is used for such a high-profile tournament.

not much up and down action in the tournament so far. Belarus look like they came there for a free skate.

It's going to be up to Sweden, Chech-Slovakia to show something. I'm making the Swedes favorites to repeat.

Looking forward to the Czech-Slovakia game, should be a good one. Slovakia could surprise.

Yes, I agree. Will be rooting for them. +1 is the line, sounds about right.
