We're not debating whether or not Canada produces more hockey players than other countries. They do. It's a fact. But to say Canada owns hockey is dumb.

Never did I claim it wasn't. I was simply stating the fact that Canada produces more top-end hockey players than the US. With that, the US produces leaps and bounds far more talented football players than any other country. Nothing more, nothing less.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Really??? You've always wondered if that's real? Come on!

Anyway, it's funny, if you talk to Pens fans, they complain about Pierre as well and suggest he hates Crosby and loves Richards and loves the Red Wings. Weird how different people can have completely different perspectives.

I was being a bit sarcastic, as I have mentioned many times in the past that Pierre is 4'10... but honestly, nothing with Crosby would ever surprise me... I mean if I didn't see it for myself I would think his playoff beard is a photoshoped picture of him with some pubes on his face.

USA owns in: Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer etc.
Canada owns in: Hockey

its a true fact, Canadians have the best talent when it comes to the sport.


Fixed it for yah.

Canada and Russia/USSR have the same amount of golds at the olympics. I'd say that makes them equals. Plus Russia/USSR have more golds at the World Championships than Canada. Except Canada does hold the slight edge in WJC championships over Russia/USSR.

I say it's debatable to who owns at hockey.

Never once stated anything against it. Come off it already, fella. You lost, so did we. You just happened to have a massive collapse in the 3rd of the most important game. You continuing this argument is once again proving more arrogance by the second.

Yeah theres 3 pages in here of Americans saying "Oh I'm glad those arrogant Canadians lost". But yeah as soon as I make a statement about why Canadians should in fact expect their teams to win every tournament, all you have to say is come off it.

So now tell me why exactly Canadians are arrogant for expecting to win when they enter these tournaments? Until then youre just an arrogant American jealous that Canadians are consistently a favourite in every IIHF tournament.

I never argued that the US produced more top-end hockey players than Canada. I don't think anyone did. I think the argument is centered around the fact that some people believe that Canada owns hockey because they invented it and produce more top-end players. Can you really take ownership of a sport?

Finally an American who doesn't just say youre arrogant and has an argument.

While these are good points, Russia sent professionals to every olympics while no other country could until 1998 in Nagano. Since Nagano Canada has 50% of the gold medals.

For the worlds, russia has the KHL where some great players play and can all be sent. Canada's best forward usually sent to the worlds is Shane Doan and usually another player of around that calibre. Russia sends most of their best players to that tourney.

With a level playing field in the juniors (not even that fair) and olympics, Canada has the edge in my mind by quite a bit

It's arrogant to believe that someone is jealous that Canadian teams are considered a favorite in IIHF tournaments simply because you do. "I think we are better and you should too, otherwise you are dumb and arrogant."

That doesn't matter. TSN is the major sports network in Canada and they should be covering the loss, as they are, despite the fact that every newspaper is. To not is irresponsible.

I think we're both missing each others' points. I agree with what you're saying about "owning" a sport, but I also believe countries are far superior at certain sports than others. That's my point.
