I don't think everyone's tune is going to change. Its the risk of matching country against country and a risk players and a lot of hockey fans are OK with.
yeah, and look at players on teams that had no hope. Griess, Goc, Erhoff, and everyone else on team Germany. They knew that even bronze was unlikely. They did it because simply to be there is an honor.
