Team USA Hockey at the Olympics

What if we get past the point of Mike Modano smacking down USA Hockey and look at what he said. I dare say Mikey Mo is right. USA Hockey needs some changes. If you go 1-4-1 in Olympic play after winning a silver medal four years before, somebody needs to give us some answers.

This team didn’t even get a medal. Nothing!

Where is the young talent? Who can we look to in 2010 as our best hopes to bring home a gold medal from the Vancouver Games? Team Canada was sent home in worse shape, but Wayne Gretzky took the blame and planned to find answers since he’s running their hockey program.

USA Basketball got bronze at the 2004 Athens Games and they went out and made a boatload of changes. The first thing we need to do is realize Modano made some emotional remarks after Team USA lost and he was nailed to the pine the final period in their one goal loss to Finland.

Guys say things too quickly after losses sometimes. That was Modano.

He cares about USA Hockey. He’s been the face for the team for a long time. The Americans record is proof they weren’t ready for the Torino Games.

It’s time for Team USA to look at its program and get it right for Vancouver.
