He's not implying that, but there really is no competition in Women's Hockey, it comes down to USA and Canada every time. Women's Hockey just doesn't matter as much as the Men's for most Canadians, that's the reality. We will cheer them on, but people don't drop everything like they do for the Men. Not sure if USA feels the same however.
Looks like these teams are competing pretty well to me...
A horrible Latvia team? I guess you haven't been watching this game then. For an under matched team, they have played very well. I give full props to them, as this game has nothing to do with a lack of effort from Canada. But of course everyone will look at the final score and just laugh their asses off, which is typical.
I agree with you, but realistically, if USA had this much adversity playing Latvia you guys would be all over it. Amirite? And it's not just this game, it's been the story of the entire tourney for Canada which is why they are getting so much heat.
At least we can now look ahead to a guaranteed CAN/USA matchup and let the players do all the talking on Friday.
Right, the long posts that take up every page belittling Canada, and not giving them any respect is so much better. Wanna know why the US hasn't won the gold in 30 some years, it's overly inflated egos, thinking your better at everything and no one works as hard as you. Comparing Slovenia Slovakia Norway and Austria is like arguing with a child, it's pointless, and at the end of the day you don't sound any smarter for it. Just read through these posts if you need to figure out why pretty much every country hates the usa, sorry to say it but at this point I honestly hope USA gets upset in the quarter finals just so you guys shut up already about how the US has the greatest hockey team to ever grace Olympic ice.
Tell me how you really feel.
Where did I say the US has the greatest hockey team ever? Nor did I ever compare any of the other teams. If you took the time to read my posts you would see that I said I want USA to play Canada, because to be the best you have to beat the best. You are obviously putting every poster's words in my mouth.
I was referring to the hundreds of posters on HFboards who seemed to be trying to figure out any scenario they could where they were on the opposite side of the bracket.

That's just from a tiny portion of that thread...Maybe Red Wing fans are a little more open to a tougher challenge on the way to gold, as I didn't see anyone posting thoughts like that here, but it seems that the wider team USA fanbase really didn't want to have to face Canada unless a medal was on the line.
I can see how you came to that conclusion, but any real fan wants to go through the best to be the best. Otherwise, what's the point? It won't be good for my heart, but I ALWAYS want a USA/Canada match. WJC. WC. Olympics. I've been waiting four years for redemption. The time is ours.
I'm actually loving it. Seeing all the divided national pride on here and knowing when the Olympics are done we all go back to being Wings fans. As long as things aren't vicious and overly insulting I think the back and forth is good fun. Oh and go USA
Me too! That's what this is all about. Until the Olympics are over you Canadians might as well be Penguins fans! Yeah, I went there.
Well if you're gonna go all in, at least spell Kessel's name right! God he's been out of his mind for like 6 weeks now. I was at the Leafs vs Sens game for military appreciation night and he was off his rocker that game too with a hat trick. But then I must add, Shea Weber's slapshot. I know he hasn't put any through the net in these Olympics, but he's put 2 in it.
Ha, sorry, I work for a lighting company and there is a brand 'Kessil'. I did question it on typing, just too lazy to verify.
If it was Weber's shot that hit Kesler he'd definitely not be playing any more games this tournament.
