Canada VS USA WJHC Irrelevant?

Tonight's game Canada vs USA, has never been more irrelevant. Canada has already won Group B and will be getting a bye into the semifinals while USA has been eliminated from the tournament. The traditional rivalry is usually the most intresting and the funnest (is that a word? I guess we're making up words here as well..) game of the tournament. You want a few examples?
Jordan Eberle 2010 IIHF World Juniors:

That was thrilling no? Want another example? This is absolutely amazing to watch:

So Canada and USA have had their fair share of amazing-ness ,but this time it won't be a medal. It will be just for the rivalry. Nevertheless, it should still be a fun game to watch.
