Thanks to 23 medals in speedskating events, the Netherlands rounded out the top five with 24 total medals.

Team USA went into Sochi with high expectations but failed to produce in some high-profile events, such as speedskating, men's hockey and ladies' figure skating.

The American men's hockey team looked like the best squad in the Olympic tournament before the semifinal game against Canada, scoring 20 goals in five games. However, in that game and then during the bronze-medal contest, Team USA was shut out completely and failed to medal.

ESPN's Scott Burnside breaks down the reason for the collapse: "The stark reality of the situation is that Team USA peaked exactly one week earlier."

Team captain Zach Parise didn't mince words after getting blown out 5-0 by Finland for the bronze, as relayed by Sarah Kwak of Sports Illustrated:

In addition to the big hockey disappointment, American speedskaters disappointed, failing to register a single medal.

"We came in being one of the most decorated disciplines in the Winter Olympics and we come away with zero medals," Shani Davis said after his team struck out in Sochi, as noted by Beth Harris of the Associated Press (via SFGate.com). "It's horrible."

It will be interesting to see what kind of changes will potentially be made in order to ensure this doesn't happen again four years from now when the 2018 Winter Games are held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. 

Many of the top leaders from this year's Games won't likely be competing the next time around. Bode Miller, Shani Davis, the duo of Meryl Davis and Charlie White and many of the men's hockey players could potentially be retired by that time. 

This means Team USA must continue to build up its junior programs in order to compete with the dominant European nations in winter sports. 

Second place isn't bad, but Americans expect nothing less than the best.
