My Olympic wish is for everyone to play nice in the Olympic discussion thread.

In YFMB's name, amen.

I <3 you all, even those of you who are cheering for Canada :lol:

My Olympic wish is for everyone on LGW to be as awesome as you and not crap on other countries for BS conspiracy theory reasons.

No goal....no goal...no goal...and of course Canada wins by 1 goal.  Typical of Canadian teams, need a little help to win...just look at Mens division...drawn from a hat my ass...

I suggest you do a little bit of research before you start throwing around outrageous statements such as this one. 

 

A) Qualification for the men's tournament at the 2014 Winter Olympics was determined by the IIHF World Ranking following the 2012 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships. The top nine teams in the World Ranking received automatic berths into the Olympics, while all other teams had an opportunity to qualify for the remaining three spots in the Olympics.

 

B) Using the IIHF World Ranking points system, the current year received full value, and each preceding year was worth 25% less.[2] The following was a ranking based on points already accumulated toward Olympic qualification of all countries at the top level, or who are ranked amongst them.

 

 

World ranking Team WC 2012
(100%) WC 2011
(75%) WC 2010
(50%) OLY 2010
(50%) WC 2009
(25%) Total 1 23px-Flag_of_Russia.svg.png Russia 1200 825 580 520 300 3425 2 23px-Flag_of_Finland.svg.png Finland 1100 900 520 560 265 3345 3 23px-Flag_of_the_Czech_Republic.svg.png Czech Republic 1120 840 600 510 260 3330 4 23px-Flag_of_Sweden.svg.png Sweden 1040 870 560 530 280 3280 5 23px-Flag_of_Canada.svg.png Canada 1060 795 510 600 290 3235 6 23px-Flag_of_Slovakia.svg.png Slovakia 1160 705 450 550 235 3100 7 23px-Flag_of_the_United_States.svg.png United States 1020 750 440 580 275 3065 8 21px-Flag_of_Norway.svg.png Norway 1000 780 480 470 230 2960 9 16px-Flag_of_Switzerland.svg.png  Switzerland 920 720 530 500 240 2910

Denigrating a country or it's citizens is completely unacceptable.  Anyone participating in such a discussion will be persona non grata for an appropriate length of time.  

 

The Olympics were created to encourage good will and inspire friendly competition.  Please let's enjoy these games in that intended spirit.

 

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the "Report" button.  It truly is your best friend behind Matt.  If you see a post you feel is against forum guidelines, it is VERY helpful to use the report function.

 

 

 

 

 


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Count me as one of lots.

 

From NESN:

 

U.S. goalie Jessie Vetter lost track of a rebound, and the puck fell into the net. The linesman blew the whistle before the puck crossed the line, but it was still ruled a goal on the review.

 

Not a word about the "iffy" penalty in the final minute of the game, resulting in a six-on-four situation? Interesting.

He's probably laughing at the horrific goal the USA women's goalie let in and that her Dwoman scored on her.  The whistle blew right before it went in the net, but regardless that was a bad goal to let in.  This I assume is why Babs is enjoying such a good chuckle.

Well if your tablet/handy is supporting flash you can watch them on streams, mute it and record the thing (if there are apps for that).

 

Other than that I'm in the same boat but can't do anything about it, the timeframe just......well...sucks :(

Nah, I'm not that savvy.

 

Would be nice if primetime coverage would show re-runs of hockey like they do other Olympic events (FIGURE SKATING!!!), but Bob Costas would never go for that.
