Are you another one who thinks it's time to give out medals before the games are played?
him and others here, and it's right in the thread, think Canada can't even play team hockey, you don't think a fan shouldn't take exception to that?.
I wouldn't even waste your time with us anyway if i were a Finn fan, i 'd just be worried about finally winning something other then a second and third place badge.
you guys have all the practice in the world at that. You should leave us alone and concentrate on your problems, they are definately considerable.

Has it gotten on Espos national pride so much that Russia can now arguably take Canada down on paper and is annoyed by it and fires some insults towards the guys saying it. Really It's always felt like some Canadian fans have been doing the same, when having discussions and speculations about rosters. Canada has usually been the clear number one and downtalking everyone else and felt like they are not giving any respect for the others. It's felt the same way, being arrogant and stuff while it's certainly been the case, they have been the favourites. But as everyone knows it's a game of hockey so even the roster doesn't guarantee everything but it sure is fun to talk and speculate about it, if there are some valid arguments, not insults or at least having the tone set to stuff like that. I mostly feel the Russians have been solid and trying to give arguments and opinions while Espo is answering them with fanatism.
My take on the Malkin & Datsyuk vs Crosby & Getlzaf stuff is that Malkin is the Conn Smythe winner and the Russians might be better defensively. Offensive production should be pretty much on the same level and who knows how the injury/operation might affect Getlzaf getting going in to the season. So the pick would be Malkin & Datsyuk, not by a large margin, but I would feel safer with them.
