No offense to Babcock, but this team had Ken Hitchcock's fingerprints all over it.


Coaches the winning team to the Gold Medal ... still gets no credit.

Team Canada's play was some of the best and most dominant hockey I've ever witnessed. Congratulations to Gudlevskis, Quick and Lundquist for keeping their teams in these games; some of the best goaltending I've ever seen. Shoutout to Finland and Latvia for the great team efforts.

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.

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!

Rich and a bud thinking up this scenario...


There's a lot of room for activities with all that cap space.

The day that Z gets bought out is the day I ride to Holland's house on my Back to the Future hoverboard and punch his wife in the face on the way to cash my lottery check while holding my Oscar and s***ting gold doubloons out of my ass.

Come to think of it I'm really rich in this alternate reality

*thumbs up*

What were we talking about?

Teemu is that you?

 

Even if Crosby went down easily on that play today it was as blatant interference as they come.

 

You can't throw a body check on a guy when he's nowhere near the puck. Besides, if you actually look at the stats I wouldn't say Canada has had any help from the referee's, they've spent by far the least time with the man advantage of all the contenders, almost half as much time as the next closest to them.

Denigrating a country or it's citizens is completely unacceptable.  Anyone participating in such a discussion will be persona non grata for an appropriate length of time.  

 

The Olympics were created to encourage good will and inspire friendly competition.  Please let's enjoy these games in that intended spirit.

 

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the "Report" button.  It truly is your best friend behind Matt.  If you see a post you feel is against forum guidelines, it is VERY helpful to use the report function.

No goal....no goal...no goal...and of course Canada wins by 1 goal.  Typical of Canadian teams, need a little help to win...just look at Mens division...drawn from a hat my ass...

I suggest you do a little bit of research before you start throwing around outrageous statements such as this one. 

 

A) Qualification for the men's tournament at the 2014 Winter Olympics was determined by the IIHF World Ranking following the 2012 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships. The top nine teams in the World Ranking received automatic berths into the Olympics, while all other teams had an opportunity to qualify for the remaining three spots in the Olympics.

 

B) Using the IIHF World Ranking points system, the current year received full value, and each preceding year was worth 25% less.[2] The following was a ranking based on points already accumulated toward Olympic qualification of all countries at the top level, or who are ranked amongst them.

 

 

World ranking Team WC 2012

(75%) WC 2010
