Dube and Davidson are the only one of the pairs that have legitimate shot at a medal so as long as they qualify its a none issue. If they had repeated their score from last year they would have won silver. Its unfortunate but its not the end of the world as long as our top athletes go.

Yeah, you are sort of right. Dube and Davison got lucky last year to put it lightly, and this year they just did not seem to pull it together, and that included the entire season. They have great chemistry and I think they have a chance of medalling, but they really need the help of the other teams in regards to making mistakes. See how the summer goes for them. Virtue/Moir in ice dance did really well, third, and she was injured all year long. Chan was amazing and will challenge for gold. And Rochette wins silver and will absolutely have a chance to medal as well in Vancouver. The pairs do need a bit of improvement to rank up with the other teams.

I agree! Canada is only able to send 2 skaters in each discipline, but realisitically that is not that big of a deal. There is only one from each that has a chance of winning anyways. The other skaters who go will aim for top 10 and that's it. In terms of losing out of a medal, the size of the team won't matter. Skate Canada will make the decisions about who attends Vancouver and you can bet all of the above mentioned will be there.

Canada vs USA in the semi-final match in few hours (19h00 Finland time)

Winner will play in the final sunday (against the winner between Russia and Sweden)

You have the format wrong

The top two teams from the Canada, USA, Finland group go to the gold medal game on Sunday (which is Canada and the USA) and the 3rd place team (Finland) will play the winner of the Sweden, Russia and Kazakhstan group (Sweden)

So

Bronze Medal Game: Sweden vs Finland

Gold Medal Game: USA vs Canada

Silver for Canada after their 4-1 lost against USA at the Women's Ice Hockey WC in Finland

Canada will add today one other medal.

They play for the Gold against Scotland later today (in Moncton) at the Men's Curling WC

(Norway and Switzeland will battle for the Bronze)

So it's mean that Canada will reach the first place for the total of medals with USA and Germany (with 28)

With one event left (Men's Ice Hockey) it's possible that Canada finish first with a total 0f 29

This table just shows what I thought, Canada has the ability to win the most medals but its unlikely (unless everything goes perfect in freestyle skiing, curling and hockey) will be hard pressed to match the Americans, Germans and Norwegians in gold medals.

I went to see the 3-4 Page Playoff game between Switzerland and Norway (won by the Swiss). My first time attending a world championships in person, great experience. Oh, and I will post a rant about the use of the Page Playoff system in curling pretty soon... Its such a ridiculous system...

In the Olympics its a standard playoff 1 v 4, 2 v 3.

The page playoff gives an extra reward to the teams that do best in the round robin. It makes up for the unwieldy 10 or 12 team round robin.

And thank the world there is no page playoff in the Olympics. It makes no sense in Curling.

Exhibit A: A what if scenario: Canada win against Scotland in there round robin game. That would have given Canada a 11-0 record while five teams would have been tied for second at a far inferior 7-4 record. Now, a complicated and truthfully not very good tie-breaker system would have been used to decide which of those five teams would have faced Canada in the 1-2 playoff game while the four other teams would have to first go trough a tie break game and then go trough the 3-4 game... Hardly seems fair, eh?

Exhibit B: This one actually happened, at last year women's worlds, and is an example of double stupidity. First stupidity: China, Canada and Switzerland all tie for first place, but Switzerland still has to go trough the 3-4 playoff.

Second stupidity: China beats Canada two of the three times they meet at the 2008 worlds, but sadly for the Chinese those two times where in the round robin and the 1-2 playoff. Canada won the final, but still had a losing record against the second place finishers.

hey! You miss few medals in figure skating women's single

For example, South Korea 5 gold medals (After 83 of 86) -> 4 gold medals (After 85 of 86)

Japan 4 bronze medals (After 83 of 86) -> 3 bronze medals (after 85 of 86)

So, Canada must be 9 silver medals (After 85 of 86)

Women's Single:

G: Kim Yu-Na (KOR)

S: Joannie Rochette (CAN)

B: Miki Ando (JPN)

Ah, I see what I did now. I took the medal tally from page 8, while the correct one was on the first post of page 9. I'll fix it next week (when the Hockey WC is done).

Thanks for pointing it out.
