I agree. They do look great, especially on D but they seem to have let up a bit and lost a step in transition.

I think the States are just getting on more loose pucks now. They don't just get it in and watch Canada break out past them. The goal gave them a bit of boost. They don't look as dreadful as they did earlier.

They're chasing the puck more in the neutral zone. They were really tight positionally earlier.

NHL.com says Canada dominated the States. I'll take their word for it, GO CANADA!

US has just been terrible while Canada hasn't looked much better, they are just executing better and capitalizing on their chances.

HUH? What game did you watch. Canada probably played one of their better games against a top team in years.

I didn't watch it, or really have a rooting interest. I hate picking sides between Canada and the USA. Each country is great in it's own way, and makes the other country better. Plus I have family and friends living in America.

Anyway, I guess my Canadian friends and family will be happy, and the hosts on the FAN590 and people calling in tomorrow will be giddy. It's a good distraction to the Leafs losing 2-1 over the team they're helping to build into an eventual Stanley Cup Champion :lol:

Edit: Wow, just saw some highlights of the Canada-USA game! How many USA fans were in the crowd? It looked like the game was in Southern Ontario and not Western New York.

Losing to Canada in anything (including hockey) is just embarrassing for America.

I guess now would not be a good time to talk about our economies..... :D

laugh.gif Consistently the worst winners at everything. No grace whatsoever, it is damn comical.

The only things we CONSISTENTLY win at are curling and hockey so let me be the first Canadian to call BULLs***!!

Who has more grace Canadian hockey players or US basketball players?

I can't wait either. Hate the Leafs.

and I didn't think class was necessary judging by the original comments. Sorry.... :unsure:

For another forum, slick. Let us find some videos on what ANY Canadian will do during any type of national victory or otherwise. Though the burning of Crosby's picture (Mr. Golden Goal himself) was hilarious, it doesn't need to be much more looked into than that one. I mean, come on laugh.gif

thumbup.gif Happy for ya lol. Allow me to be one of the first to say I watched most of the game and saw an elite team vs. a bunch of mini-mites. Just a horrible showing. Thanks for proving my points to a severe degree, though tongue.gif

laugh.gif In fact +1... I love you canucks

Visentin came through with a very solid game in net, and Canada checked the USA right out of the game in the first 2 periods. Great performance from Canada!

Anytime you Americans need to learn a thing or two about hockey, you know where to go. ;)

Not sure what that means but I will humbly agree that you have much more class than we do.

Can we go to another forum and discuss why we are the only friends you have left.....

There is a whole thread dedicated to my lack of friends sad.gif

Thanks for the 10 posts for the 3 years!

I am sure they have been amazing contributions to Detroit Red Wings lore.

I thought the teams were pretty evenly matched, the Canadians just had a much better game plan and out-coached the Americans.

I usually just come on to check the latest gossip around the Wings and laugh at a few of the comments.

I only comment when someone says something really arrogant or stupid. Tonight I saw both those and couldn't help myself.

I'll sign off now so you can find someone from Sweden to offend. :zzz:

Red Wings lore??? I am sure you rank right up there with Gordie Howe and Sid Abel.

That has to be the worst case of "home ice advantage" I've ever seen. 85% of that crowd was wearing a Canada jersey.
