by the end Schenn will have more points then those players did last year


after not geeting gold last year there is no way canada looses this game.


What is he Crosby now ? One player can't win the tournament by himself, not to mention he makes a ton of mistakes because it seems to be all about him most of the time.

Nope, he does make lots of mistakes but someone was saying there was no Eberle to score goals.....

TSN2 has a Raptors game on it right now. Sucks. Maybe they will go there after. TSN says it's showing it but it was Al Micheals interviewing Bradford.

I dont have that channel, they mostly play Darts and Bowling and I hate both of them. They make you pay for TSN2 or upgrade to another higher package. :thumbdown:

Thanks for the link.

US got the bye straight to the semi-finals, and Canada defeated the Swiss 4-1 in the quarterfinal to set up the match-up. The game is at 7:30 tomorrow on NHL Network or TSN (depending on location). Being from the US, I sure am pulling for the Americans but of course I realize Canada is the favorites. Hopefully the Canadians are worn out from the quarters and the US used that day off well. What do you guys think?

As someone who doesn't really care who wins, likes Canada and America equally, and sings both "Oh Canada" and "The Star Spangled Banner" at sporting events, I'm cheering for Mitch Callahan.

the usa won last year, and did win their pool while canada finished second behind sweden. but with the history canada has in this particular tournament, and revenge factor. i personally have a hard time picking anybody else to win the gold.


:rolleyes: Oh ye of little faith.

Canada played in a harder group and have looked better then the US thus' far.

US might be a bit more talented however. We shall see, it should be a great game.

Canada couldn't handle the Swede's speed, and USA is even faster. Plus, we have Callahan on the USA team while Sheahan was cut by Canada.

I just want USA to win so I don't have to listen to smug "Hokey wis borne in da Cananada" people talk about how great their WJHC teams are.

Should be a good hard hitting game. Canada built their team specifically to beat USA.

Ah let them have it, a Canadian team hasn't had a Stanley Cup since 1993. It's their way to distract themselves on how disappointing the Canadian NHL teams have been for almost 20 years.

I have a theory that's reason why the tournament is so popular. If the Canadian teams were serious Stanley Cup contenders, this tournament wouldn't be as followed so closely in Canada.

I really doubt thats it, the tournament is popular because Canada is crazy about hockey. Isn't it weird that tomorrow is the States first sell out all tourney because theyre playing Canada and something like two thirds of all tickets went to Canadians? That has nothing to do with Canadian teams not winning cups, Leafs fans dont care if the Habs win cups in fact they would rather that not happen.

Not to mention since 93 there has been more Canadians then any other country hoist the cup, Canadians love hockey plain and simple.

Despite us missing a lot of key players, I see Canada beating the US. Only time will tell.

You talk as if Canadian NHL teams have only Canadian players, and American teams only have American players.
