Team USA appreciation thread
You have nothing to be ashamed about. You played your hearts out, and almost won it in the end.

It was one hell of a ride.

MountainGoat 02-28-2010 04:58 PM

good effort but not good enough

G F O P 02-28-2010 04:59 PM

Good job USA. That Parise goal was epic.

Didn't give up, and fought hard until the end. Good job USA. Good job.

IRON JELLY* 02-28-2010 04:59 PM

Better luck next time.

Hopefully you guys won't be pushing the whole underdog thing so hard in Sochi.

In The Flesh 02-28-2010 04:59 PM

great team Burke assembled, they played great!

we beat Canada and then took em to OT in the gold medal game, we're getting closer

great thing is, this is going to be our team for a while

timw33 02-28-2010 04:59 PM

Well done, you guys never gave up, grinded away and got it to OT.

Anasazi 02-28-2010 04:59 PM

It's all good, we played em hard and were THAT close...

Gucci mane 02-28-2010 05:00 PM

Oh well i didnt think we would reach this far. Good job boys.:handclap:

Thepainter 02-28-2010 05:00 PM

Hell yeah, USA!

Canada can have hockey. I'll take living in the best country in the world over some dumb sport.

Timeless Winter 02-28-2010 05:01 PM

We won't get any credit from the Canada fans here, but team USA was awesome this year. Nobody predicted us to play today.

duckaroosky 02-28-2010 05:01 PM

Good job boys, you made us all proud!


JMFJ 3 02-28-2010 05:01 PM

I'm proud of them, there's no shame in losing to a team like Canada. Erik Johnson played studly today.

hockeydemon05 02-28-2010 05:02 PM

Great job Burke. Amazing effort guys. Proud of you.

New York RKY 02-28-2010 05:02 PM

Great job USA. I was really happy with the team assembled, and they all played their hearts out. Hockey is NOT Canada's sport, at least not for much longer, I'd be worried if I were them becuase we are really catching up.

DatsyukOwns 02-28-2010 05:03 PM

You guys made this game hard to watch
And that goal by parise almost killed me

And grats on the silver medal

severian 02-28-2010 05:03 PM

This was a great effort by USA Hockey. Absolutely nothing be ashamed of. Let's not forget 16 of 23 guys on Team USA are under 25. If the NHL keeps sending players to the Olympics then the USA is going to be a force for a long time.

Canada was a heavy favorite to win before the games, USA wasn't expected to medal. USA beat them in pool play and then took them to Overtime in the Gold Medal game.

Good job team USA.

Blackhawkswincup 02-28-2010 05:04 PM

I will forever love this 2010 US team like I loved that 02 team

Both came up just short but they made US hockey proud


Fire Sweeney 02-28-2010 05:05 PM

Great coaching and GM can lead to fantastic things, they built a great team and at them going at 100 % every game.

mobilus 02-28-2010 05:05 PM

Congratulations to Team USA, there is absolutely no shame in that loss. That was a great hockey game from both teams, as high a tempo and skill level I've seen in a long, long time.

Burke and Wilson should be thanked for assembling such a squad and having them run like a well oiled machine. Wilson was second to no one on the bench.

Yzerman and Co. did what they were asked to do, congratulations to them as well. Watching Sid get the goal was a great cap to an underappreciated performance.

headsigh 02-28-2010 05:06 PM


This sucks, but at the same time I am very proud of the way we played.

bcking 02-28-2010 05:06 PM

Americans were awesome throughout the tournament, and yes please no more underdog crap

passive voice 02-28-2010 05:08 PM

I love you, Ryan Kesler.

Angels for Everyone 02-28-2010 05:09 PM

quite frankly, if the us can't get into hockey after that game, they don't ****ing deserve it

La Cosa Nostra 02-28-2010 05:09 PM

In my eyes, Canada isn't better.Both teams won one game, yet Canada wins their's in OT while we won by two goals...
