I saw that and got pretty annoyed, then saw that Andersson was crying. 

Just burning passion and disappointment. At least a fan got a silver medal tho, it's not like he chucked it, basically tossed it to a dude in the crowd. Probably made his day  lol. 

IIHF may not take too kindly to that though. 

That medal was returned. After getting it back he was asked what he would do with it. Answer was "Put it in a drawer. I got a silver medal not long ago, it's been sitting in a drawer somewhere and I've never looked at it. It's just not what I want."

I have bunch of medals from my youth, mostly gold/1st but some silver/2nd place (no not world cup caliber ones, but go for the point). I never showed any of them on a shelf or something just seemed lame (kept them in a plastic bag lol), but the silver ones I didn't even care about recieving, they were just a testament to failure.

Me likey. We should try to get this kid somehow.

They actually have done studies that confirm this attitude. Individuals who win bronze are resoundingly more satisfied with their performance than silver winners.

The bronze winners are just happy to even make the playoffs... I mean get a medal

I agree. I like his "win" or go home attitude.

Good to see this from Millennials as opposed to the entitlement snowflakes I'm used to seeing. Although the crying seems familiar.

Dude stay away from Fake News and memes. The reality is Millennials are harder working and not only having to take care of themselves but also the baby boomer generation.

Wasn’t he the guy we were getting in a bunch of mock drafts last year that a lot of people didn’t want at the time because it seemed like a reach? Or am I thinking of someone else? 

That was Elias Pettersson, I think.

My bad. Didn't mean to over generalize. Not going to get political here. Let's just say that my opinion is based on personal experience, not the media. If any Millennials were offended (which of course you will be:lol:), I apologize.

Interesting post-WJC period for some medal winners... being traded; three that I know of: Team USA (Max Jones) and Team Canada (Robert Thomas and Taylor Raddysh).

Re: Following the Formenton goal, making it 3-1 in the Final. I hope Rasmus Dahlin killed that rat that he thought he saw on the top of the dasher board. That was quite a hissy fit he threw.

I would respond, but last time we discussed stuff like this you were pretty ignorant/uninformed about it and a fellow Canadian had to correct you. We can discuss this and the US education system (the aforementioned topic) once you’ve read up on it (not fake news and facebook). Probably not on this forum though.

I'm sorry you were offended. I honestly thought you were joking about the whole millennials thing. Obviously not. I apologise.

Whatever dude, you’ve been a workaholic the last 3 months. You don’t call, you flake out on GDT’s you signed up for and when you do contact me it’s at midnight and something about how you don’t like like me cuz I’m a northerner. That was literally your new years message to me.

Pretty much the kind of thing I was basing it on. Also smart phones have pretty much destroyed workplace productivity. It's funny watching people who literally cannot function without one.

And just to keep things on topic. Congratulations Canada on your Gold!
