It definitely was a strange sight seeing Brodeur skating around during warmups with a baseball hat on and then sitting on the bench as Roberto Luongo pitched a shutout against Norway.
If Brodeur watched Switzerland's game against Team USA, and you have to think he did, he saw a team that can counterattack if given opportunities and will pressure and swarm to the puck. Brodeur has to be expecting that from the Swiss.

As for the rest of the Canadian team, it'll be interesting to see how coach Mike Babcock distributes ice time. You would expect that he'd be diplomatic with it like he was against Norway, but that could change Sunday when the Canadians play Team USA.
"We are in Canada, where they love hockey and that's why it's so exciting for us and I think that's why we had nerves as well," Babcock said after the 8-0 win over Norway. "We're real proud of being Canadian and real proud of our country and what it has to offer. This is a beautiful city and we want to show it off to the world, but we also want to show how good we are. We are a work in progress right now. We hope to get better each and every game and we hope to be in the tournament for a long time."
Switzerland -- The Swiss should have some confidence after the way they played against Team USA in a 3-1 loss on Tuesday. They were able to create plenty of odd-man rushes in the third period against a relatively tired American team. They showed no fear despite having only two NHL players in Mark Streit and Jonas Hiller.
Mistakes were costly for the Swiss, though. And, in the second period they struggled to counterattack against the Americans and were outshot, 14-4. The Canadians pose an even bigger threat with their overall size, speed, depth and experience. The proof came in the third period of Canada's 8-0 win over Norway when it scored five goals.
