    the USA is getting shafted.

    looks like they are looking out for CTV in Canada

  2. greg says:

    do we know the ratings from yesterday’s US/Switzerland game?

    Chris :the USA is getting shafted.
    looks like they are looking out for CTV in Canada

    Why do you say Team USA is being shafted?

  4. leafsfan1967 says:

    Josh :He’s probably referring to the earlier start time on the US semi.

    I suspect the game is at 3 PM to make NBC happy.

  5. Ian Kidd says:

    I think the early start is to the USA’s advantage. That’s been the time slot for 3 of the 4 games they’ve played. Finland’s schedule has been all over the place. Their QF game vs. CZE was a 10:00 ET start, which means the Finns have 7 hours less rest than the US heading into today’s game. May not be a big deal, but in a compressed tournament like this every little bit helps.
