#2486482 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by evilmrt on 23 February 2014 - 10:52 PM

The Silver means as much to the Swedes as winning the Bronze meant to the USA... after the two quick goals 11 seconds apart, the USA just mailed in the rest of the game...really, who cares about a Bronze? We went there to win the Gold and anything else was meaningless... I'd rather have a pin that says "I Participated at Sochi" than take home a Bronze medal in Hockey...


I think you're overstating things in terms of the Gold. First of all, the Bronze is won, not gained with a loss like the Silver. Team USA went home empty handed, and established new records of shame (first back to back shutouts for an American team since the 1920s, worst shutout in the medal round in Olympic history, etc). This crap goes in the record books, a bronze would have been something... Now this 2014 squad will look awful in the history books.

Could care less if NHL players don't play in the Olympics again.
 
Unless the games are in North America, you can't watch any of them live without quitting your job.  And the primetime evening coverage doesn't show re-runs of hockey.  They only had one channel showing the evening coverage when most people have returned from their workdays. 
 
One the bright side, I got to see plenty of figure skating and women in khaki pants doing stupid stunts on a snowboard.  :sleepy:


Pretty good argument for the World Cup to replace it? Round robin and qualification games could be held in two groups, each on both sides of the Atlantic. Medal round would be alternated between NA and Euro hosts each tournament.

One, it wasn't a bone fragment.  Two, unless it was pressing on a nerve there was no reason for him to have the surgery.

 

Thank you Holland apologist

No offence to LGW but this is the last place I'm going to be during any of these games.

 

BEST NEWS ALL DAY




#2485575 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 20 February 2014 - 03:16 PM

I obviously wish the US had won, but I was about as upset as I was when I caught the two man bobsledding team not win gold. Which is to say not really upset at all. Now if the US loses to Canada tomorrow you may find that I've thrown a temper tantrum and destroyed my living room.

#2484361 International Hockey Rivalries.

Posted by evilmrt on 16 February 2014 - 08:07 AM

Austria - Germany
Finland - Sweden
Norway - Denmark
Russia - Canada
Slovenia - Slovakia
Canada - USA is a big rivalry but I think. Canada - Russia tops that

Sent from my BlackBerry


This is all pretty much spot on, except Slovenia and Slovakia. I think you meant Czech Republic and Slovakia?

Amazing game and an amazing finish, anyone who missed this needs to watch the replay.

NBC really must be kicking themselves for not broadcasting this on normal NBC this morning

He should sit out the round robin games, at least.

Ah, the good ol' days where Scotty took the non-olympic Wings down to a mini-camp in Florida are long gone.
