I don't even think right now as it stands Canada is in the top 3 teams. US,Swe and rus in no particular order.And that's only because those teams seem to be gelling a bet better right now. Not to say Canada wont turn it on because they do have the talent to win it all but don't sell any of the other teams I mentioned short.
And how is it if an American states that team Canada should be playing a lot better when they are not ridiculous? With all the hype team Canada has gotten even before the Olympics started you would of thought that they already won the gold. And you can say that isn't true all you want but it is. And if anyone is taking what some people on the HF boards has stated for fact then I have nothing more to say. HF boards are well known for idiocy and nothing against anyone on here that posts there. But it's either 1 extreme or the other it seems on that site.
Of course HF boards is for idiocy as per your opinion, unfortunately it doesn't change a thing I have read coming from American's.
As for an American stating Canada should be playing better, it really has no merit on how we feel. We haven't lost a game, we have let in the least amount of goals in the tournament (oh but of course the conspiracies of who we played and how the teams were picked) and we are still undefeated, we are happy where we are. If USA beats us or Swiss then yes, we are not happy. Until then just worry about how American's performance should feel, not Canadians performance.
It also doesn't matter to us Canadians what kind of hype the American sports media paints on us in terms of hype, every country has one goal in these games and that is to win Gold. We ice the top players in the world, which Canada is known for producing, this is not a knock on USA because they develop and ice great players as well.
At the end of the day, it's a win win situation for us because we get to watch the most talented players play against each other. I just hate coming into this thread and seeing an American talk about how bad Canada is doing, and reminding us we had 'easier' competition.
