US and Canada, so far are looking the best. The US won the opener against Canada by a wide margin. But they will probably meet again and it should be a lot tighter.

Instead of putting strong teams in both pools, the organizers stacked them. 1 to 4 seeds are in A, and 5-8 are in B. All teams in A make it to the next round and the bottom two in B don't. It's a pretty good idea. More close games and less chance of blowouts. Also, the teams that should make it to the semis, probably will.

There has been some superb goaltending.

I said above that I liked pool stacking. But, there's an insect in the ointment. Because all the teams in pool A are assured of advancement, the weaker teams in that group are not using their best goaltenders in the early games. They want to have a rested goalie when the games are critical. It's understandable, but it deprives the fans of a chance to see the best efforts of a team every game.

The US and Canada games were sold out early. And , probably the most popular player was Hayley Wickenheiser.

The Swiss did well. But, after the US and Canada, talent is pretty spotty.
