* Carey Price proved the best possible goaltending choice in the Olympics.

* Jonathan Quick was the second best until his dreadful finish enabling Team USA to blow its chance for a Bronze Medal.

* My most disappointing American player, by far — Zach Parise.

* America’s captain should have been Ryan Callahan.

* I can’t understand why so many bloggers have ripped Patrick Kane’s performance. 

* The Blackhawks ace never stopped trying. Ditto for Phil Kessel.

* Kudos to the Canadian high command which did just about everything right.

* Team Slovenia comes off as even more heroic than Team Canada.

* Worst officiating call of the series belongs to the penalty called against the American Women’t team for slashing when the Canadian gals still were behind. 

* Second worst call was the penalty that put the American women down two players in overtime.

* That game should be a do-over.

* No matter how they shake their spin the Team USA general staff never should have omitted Kyle Okposo, Andy Greene and Bobby Ryan off its Olympic roster.
