OTTAWA - The Canadian women's hockey team took Thursday off for a day of rest and recovery.

Make that two days, since Canada barely broke a sweat in dispatching a Swiss team in a world championship game that provided plenty of fodder for an old but inevitable debate.

Critics already had their knives sharpened by the time the final whistle sounded Wednesday, the score showing 13-0 for a Canadian side that had just finished firing 79 shots on the Swiss goal.
