Hmmm, a team build by Brian Burke underperforming.  Where have we seen that before?


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Just cause I've always loved the guy, I really really want Selanne to finish the hat trick.

 

You're forgiven because you're from Winnipeg and I'm sure he is special to the city.

 

His whining about refereeing vs the Wings and team Canada have soured me on him completely. Legend for sure, but he'll never be among my favorites.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

They didn't choke in one big game I recall.

Congrats to Finland.  Really fought hard all tournament and earned that Bronze medal.

Looks like the US lost their motivation.

That's what bums me out most: They quit.


What did I miss, where was Dustin Brown the 2nd half of the game? Did Bylsma basically go with two lines?
How did he go from TJ Sochi to TJ Nochie so fast?

Edit: Kane is an emotional weakling.

Exactly... Pretty head scratching decisions I.E. no Bobby Ryan, Keith Yandle, or Dustin Byfuglien. Really really hope this is his last Olympics with team USA.

I hope tomorrow's gold medal game is a lot more evenly matched, If I'm waking up at 7 am for the game I want them to put on a good show. I'm Canadian so go Canada, but I'm also a wings fan so can't be upset if Sweden wins :)

I actually had my eye on the Russian women's curling team, just like in "Some Like It Hot"--- The older generation knows what I'm talking about.

US team peaked too early. Game against Russia was their gold medal game. Still surprised they went scoreless the last two games.
