What a pathetic showing by team Sweden. They were never in it.

Too funny.

How are guys supposed to be medicated for their illness?  I don't get the IIHF whatsoever.


I like this team.

I am not happy, but I did say from the start that Canada's defense scares me...they just proved why, two shutouts against two of the best teams in the world.... Congrats.

 

now, Lets go Red Wings!

3 goals against in 6 games... who really was in it, even with our lame offence?

I take Sudafed and Actifed and drink 3 fruit smoothies a day and then chase it with cough syrup and soup.  Half of what I do would make me a IIHF doper.  :lol:

one thing is for certain after this Olyimpics. The redwings will not be persuing the RFA that is PK Subban, think he only played in one game obviously Babs dont rate him !

Team Sweden was DOA without Zetterberg.  Hope the same isn't true of the Wings now.  Happy for Babs and Stevie Y, though.

Sweden was missing too many high-end players to hang with Canada. Needed at least Backstrom, but really when we lost Zetterberg I felt we lost the chance to win Gold.

Good tournament by Canada, that defense is really impressive.

You could see the reflection of Getzlaf's gold medal off his head.  Someone could probably photoshop some good hair plugs on him.


I like this team.

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.

I don't see Babcock in the team photo.  Is that him on the far right, almost cut off?

Sweden looked shocked from the beginning, but still taking home Silver without so many great players is a huge accomplishment. Canada just turned it on when the games mattered, their defense was just out of this world.

 

Hey Ed Snider I guess Stevie Y knows a bit about hockey now ey?

Congratulations to the entire Team Canada organization, especially the management side.
