Well here's hoping this time around they award the gold based on past achievement.  If not, this time next week you boys will be watching curling, waving your little Canadian flags, and endlessly repeating "four years ago we were the best in the world". 

Last USA gold medal was 1980.  I'd take 4 years rather than 34.  I guess what I'm saying is that when Canada wins it, it's not a big enough deal to make a movie.  :cheesy:   Kick ass movie though.

Very unimpressed with Team Canada.  Considering their lineup, shouldn't they be.... better? 

 

Also, the backup/color commentator guy is awful.

Glen Healy, by far the worst part of Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday.  Guy is not only a complete moron, but a tardcore Leaf Blower.

There you have it.  Drew motherf***ing Doughty.  I said it all game, just give him the puck cause clearly, he's the only Canadian that knows how to shoot the puck "not directly at the goalie".

No CBC announcer, this isn't "technically a great game".  USA vs Russia was a great game.  This game is a chess match where Canada needs to get more quality shots to the net, but the Finns D is in their heads and they're as Kip said, skating in glue.  That's why I wanted a guy like Ladd on the 4th line to grind and hit.  USA has a line of Callahan-Backes-Brown....we have Nash in that role.  f*** me.

Technical issues with Glen Healy's mic!  There is a god!!!


And no Koivu's

Saku's no biggie, but Mikku is another huge loss.

Doughty has been absolutely amazing so far.  A goal in each game now.  Shouldn't have had a PP, but we'll take it.  Selanne is pissed with Crosby lol.

Good thing they brought Kunitz to the Olympics.  He and Crosby are doing magnificent on the big stage together...... :lol:

That really is the worst possible way to end a medal game.  I don't even get the point of shootouts anyway.  Hopefully the gold medal game ends in regulation or OT.

Toews vs Oshie.  3 day shootout.

Just tuned into the USA game.  Kessel with a hatty?  Him and JVR are deadly.

In all honesty...I hope the St.Louis Blues represent the Western Conference for the 2014 Cup Final...They seem like a decent bunch of guys to cheer for.

They were my prediction to win the west this year.  Their team is so strong top to bottom.  Them and Boston is the finals I predict and would actually love to see.  Shattenkirk is a very good player as well.  Didn't look to get too much ice time today (I could be wrong though), but he's a good guy to fall back on if needed to step up.

Also, am I alone in thinking I'd absolutely love JVR on the wings? Dood can play

Absolutely not.  He's awesome.  Nice guy too.  :thumbup:

Kovalchuk is trying to reach his number in blind pass giveaways today.

Well done Slovenia,another good game at the Olympics.Feel sorry for Slovakia,but we'll have Tatar and Jurčo back earlier than expected.

On the bright side though, someone pointed out that they have 2 goals in 2 games scored by Tatar and Jurco.

I'd be quite ok with Datsyuk taking a gold medal back to the Wings dressing room with him and have him go back there feeling good and loose, ready for a playoff run that begins without Z.

 

Edit:  As I sit here in my Datsyuk shirt ready to cheer him on!  ;)
