John Shuster still doesn’t look comfortable with the Ice. He isn’t missing these huge shots, but it looks to me like he is not confident with the curl yet. It’s been hard to keep up with him. He is playing at a normal hour, but when I got up at 4 in the morning, he was in the third end.

According to, “We got a little behind the eight-ball again,” Isaacson said. “We’ve been behind in every game. It’s just a matter of us getting comfortable out there. We need to dig deep, work hard, and hopefully the ‘w’s’ will start coming.”

Here are the standings so far,

Sweden 3-0

China 2-0

Norway 2-0

Great Britain 2-1

Denmark 1-1

Switzerland 1-1

Canada 1-2

Germany 0-2

USA 0-2

Russian Fed. 0-3

The thing to remember is they are no where near out of it.

Teams are competing in a nine-game round robin through Feb. 17 followed by playoffs on Feb. 19-21.
