Team Korea arrives February 16th

Team Korea, odds on  favourite to win this year's Worlds according to a quote attributed to Team Canada skip Jim Armstrong in today's Vancouver Courier, arrive in Vancouver this Sunday. This is the same on-ice team that rewrote so many coaches' expectations of what was possible when they posted extraordinarily high team shooting percentages in Switzerland at the 2008 Championships. Though they lost in the final to defending champions Norway, the experience may make them even more formidable opponents this year.
