Sounds like a post of a defeated man above.
Its funny you couldn't argue any of that though, especially being one of the ones complaining that Canadians are too arrogant and shouldn't have a claim to being the best at the sport.
Heavy favorites of your sport, eh? How did that happen? Must be all that Canadian dominance you were talking about.
Did you really just use California as an excuse for population versus hockey plays? California?
Who said that? I believe I said it is a Canadian sport.
It's not that you think you're the best at hockey, it's the sense of entitlement that you should win, when that clearly isn't the case. Sports are sports and the best team doesn't always win, that's why they play the games.
1. Yeah they were the favourites and if you are really that dense then I will spell it out for you. Would anyone in this tourney have that much of a chance with Jeff Skinner, Seguin, Duchene, Kyle Clifford etc on the team? Young Canadians actually make the NHL when they are still eligible, yeah this sounds like excuses but its pretty obvious this team would be the heavy favourites with all these players.
2. I was making a point that one little state has more population then all of Canada. Canada has way less people but still a way greater number of players in the NHL.
3. So you are saying it is a Canadian sport? Well why are Canadians arrogant for saying it but you turn around and say it too? A little weird to complain Canadians say it is their sport then you just repeat what they say isn't it?
4. Why shouldn't Canadians think they should win? I didn't think they would win this year but I dont see why others shouldn't? We won 5 world juniors in a row and only one time sent our best possible team, have 2 olympic golds the last 3 olympics and have the most world junior championships.
I dont see how Americans dont think Canadians have a sense that when we go into a tournament we should win? Yeah every now and then they lose, but that happens in every sport. The Wings lost in 09, does that make the pens the best team of the last 20 years?
