Team North America is the wild card of the World Cup of Hockey. It features the NHLs brightest young stars, led by Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Nathan MacKinnon, and plays with a breathtaking speed that gives us a glimpse of where the game is headed.This will be the fastest team in the tournament. Its not a stretch to say that there has never been a faster hockey team assembled, from top to bottom.But Team North America is also short on experience, light on physicality and still working on its chemistry. In short, it could win it all or get bounced early. Either way, this has become a must-watch team.How North America could winIt blows past everybody and teams cant keep up. There is so much speed in this lineup that the reigning All-Star Game fastest skater champion, Dylan Larkin, couldnt crack the lineup for its opening pretournament game.Team North Americas players are so quick in transition that they should have consistent odd-man rushes throughout the course of the game, and with guys such as?Johnny Gaudreau and Brandon Saad around to complement the high-end centers, theyll know how to finish.This team has already shown a propensity to absorb the teachings of coach Todd McLellan. Its strong puck support has led to a controlled game both when its leaving the defensive zone and entering the offensive zone. This young team could become more dangerous as the tournament progresses and its young players jell and gain confidence. After beating Team Europe by a combined score of 11-4 in two pretournament games, North Americas players truly believed they were just scratching the surface.The biggest concern six months ago for this group was goaltending -- and then Matt Murray went out and won a Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins, negating that issue.The defense doesnt have the depth of some of the other teams, but it has strong skaters throughout and a bona fide No. 1 in Aaron Ekblad, who will see a ton of playing time.How North America could loseIt hasnt been forced to defend for long stretches in the early going, and there are concerns that the kids dont play a mature, 200-foot game. Privately, the coaching staff was just fine with Team Europe pushing back in the second game because it provides an opportunity to show where the players need to improve defensively.This team could be susceptible to a bigger, stronger team cycling down low and maintaining puck possession, while wearing down the smaller, faster North Americans.The North American players also tended to pass too much in the pretournament games rather than take the shot and score on second and third efforts. Thats a byproduct of having so much skill and all kinds of confidence.We still dont know how this team will look against a bigger, physical team. As Gaudreau pointed out, you cant hit what you cant catch -- but a veteran team with an edge, like Team Finland, could pose problems for the kids.Like Team Canadas, the forward group is composed mostly of centers and there are still some questions about which of the centers are best suited to play on the wing. Theyre undergoing a learning process here -- but dont have a lot of time to figure it out, one of the disadvantages of being a new creation and a team that has never played together before.What to watch for: For McDavid & Co., the future is nowThe hockey world was robbed of a full rookie season from McDavid because of his injury. Now, on a best-on-best stage, we get to see just how good he really is. McLellan has shown a willingness to play McDavid and Eichel together, which is a cool byproduct of this team and this tournament. We might never get to see that combination again.McDavid, according to teammate Mark Scheifele, is even faster than he was his rookie season. Thats scary. The expectation is that hes going to be one of the two or three best players in the game down the road. When this tournament finishes, we might just conclude he already is. Discount NCAA Jerseys . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side.

There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- The former Penn State assistant football coach who is suing the school told jurors Friday he was angered when told he could not return to team facilities after being put on leave the week Jerry Sandusky was charged with child molestation.Mike McQueary testified in the fifth day of trial in his lawsuit. Hes seeking more than $4 million in lost wages and other claims.School officials have testified that safety concerns prompted them to put McQueary on paid administrative leave in November 2011, and he never returned to the football program.They tell me, the guy who turned in a pedophile to stay away from team facilities, he testified. And they let him go around there for years after they knew about it not once, but twice. That gets me. That does not make sense to me. Its wrong.McQueary says he saw Sandusky, Penn States former defensive coordinator, sexually abusing a boy in a team shower in 2001. McQueary reported it to then-head coach Joe Paterno and two administrators. Another complaint was investigated in 1998 but produced no charges until authorities took a new look at the case starting in 2009.McQuearys testimony helped convict Sandusky of 45 counts of child sexual abuse in 2012, but he has not been able to find a job.McQueary told jurors he got a sense his status with the program was in trouble in the days after Sandusky was chargeed with molestation and two high-ranking school officials were charged with perjury and failing to properly report suspected child abuse.ddddddddddddThe only university official who offered him words of encouragement during that period was Paterno, he said. McQueary recounted an exchange they had on the practice field shortly before the schools trustees fired Paterno.He said the aging coach told McQueary he had not done anything wrong and warned him not to trust Old Main -- the administration building.He specifically said, Make sure you have a lawyer. Youre all right. You didnt do anything wrong. He was very, the word I want to use is unselfish about all of it, McQueary said.He also recounted seeing Sandusky with the boy in the shower in 2001, slamming his locker door shut and seeing that they had separated.McQueary did not say anything, physically intervene or call police, but he did contact Paterno the next day.I think one of the concerns perhaps in the very first minute is, whos going to believe me? Who is going to believe when I tell them that Jerry Sandusky was doing this? McQueary testified. I didnt know if my dad would believe me. I didnt know if anyone would believe me. And to his credit, Coach Paterno did believe me.
