Awesome! But can you tint the medal bronze? ;-)

 

That is bronze!

No Captain America, but not bad given the time I was willing to put into it.

@murphPPress: Backes is a phenomenal quote: "Im the beef. Dustin Browns the pig or pork and then (Ryan) Callahans the chicken. Thats our meat line"

I don't know what to say, I just felt this was really important to share.

 

I can't wait until we Canadians get to beat some American meat.

 

Wait..that doesn't sound right  :confused:

He's ready for Canada.

 

But he's not ready for Wonder Cindy....Nobody is.

Selanne letting Ovi know who is the greatest 8.

 

I think he was actually still complaining that Crosby dove.

I don't care what you guys think but there was a quote about it in a thread. Or maybe it was Babcock who said it? Either way it's the reason why he wasn't pursued and the fact they value unproven prospects over proven goal scorers. As many of you do as well.

 

The show us the quote...or stop claiming its a fact.

 

Also the irony of you saying we don't value proven goal scorers when you're advocating buying out Franzen is pretty spectacular.

What was the trick play?

 

Latvia had a set play made up for if they finally won a neutral zone faceoff.

Right off the faceoff win their defenceman took off to the bench, instead of having a different defenceman jump on they instead had a forward jump on from the absolute far end of the bench behind the Canadian defence as it was in the 2nd with the long change.

 

The Latvian who had the puck then fired a stretch pass up the middle of the ice and sent their 4th forward in on a breakaway before any of the Canadian defenceman even knew he was on the ice.

 

It was a very smart play.

Should be a good game, getting Duchene's speed in the line-up is a plus. I just wish it was in place of Kunitz rather than an injured Tavares.

 

The US has been cruising through this tournament so I assume they'll be the favorite, but Canada has only surrendered 2 deflections and a stretch pass breakaway on a trick play that I doubt any team would have seen coming.

 

If the Canadian offence doesn't find its groove I don't like our chances. I think the defence can keep the US offence in check, but 1 or 2 goals probably wont cut it against an offence playing as well as the Americans.

 

Can't wait.


3rd and 4th best teams? Now you have lost your mind! USA and the country up north are the top 2. There is no question about this. The only thing that makes it even close is the bigger ice, which the euros are far more familiar with. There are reasons why Canada has had 445 player play in the NHL this year, the US has had 200, then followed in distant 3rd Sweden had 57, Czech republic has 33, Russia 29, and Finland 20.

 

Technically speaking we've been 2nd and 3rd.

Latvia's goalie just played the best game any single player has played in this entire tournament.

 

Should be a good match-up with the US, although losing Tavares is going to hurt.

could you guys imagine if CZE and LAT pull off upsets today? to quote Joey Lawrence "Whoa!"

 

That would be pretty damn funny considering the tone of this thread the past couple days.

 

At least we'd all be united in cheering for the Swedes with all their Red Wings.

Russia s***s the bed hard. On home ice.

 

Finland's system is kryptonite against the style of game Russia wants to play.

 

Even without their centers they'll be tough to beat for anyone in this tournament.

:lol: Malkin learned that move from Cindy....10 for embellishment!

 

Speaking of Cindy, over-under on how many dives today?

 

Probably about half as many times as Dustin Brown.  :lol:

I'm so conflicted in this game. The Wings all play for Sweden but its so hard to cheer against Slovenia who are easily the cinderella team of this tournament.

Man, I want the Olympics to end just so we can all go back to being Wings fans.

 

With the way the Canadian and American fan bases have argued for the past couple days it would be fitting if the Semi final on our side of the bracket was Slovakia vs Switzerland.

I'm with LeftWinger, I want Canada to lose every chance they get, BECAUSE of the entitlement.  Having said that, I definitely want to play Canada in this tournament so I can see the maple tears fall from the heavens (and so there are no excuses).  I'd prefer it was for gold, but I'll take a ticket to the gold on their backs.

 

 

You're underestimating our ability to come up with excuses....If we lose to anyone at any point in time there will ALWAYS be excuses...most of which will rightfully be incredibly hilarious to you guys.

 

Bad Ice, Bad Refereeing, wrong coach, wrong line-up, Crosby had a hangnail that hindered his shot all tournament, some idiot in Regina shaved his Olympic beard too soon, Glen Healy stole our mojo...we've got a million excuses when we lose.

 

Win or lose at least we've still got curling right fellow Canucks???
