I'd actually be curious about the poll now, I had assumed most people thought like me and Chomp, but maybe not. The olympics are a fun little tournament with some good hockey, but honestly, I the amount I care about it doesn't even sniff the amount I care about the Sharks, and if the olympics didn't happen, I wouldn't notice. If hockey seasons don't happen, or the Sharks really suck, I become incredibly unhappy.
There is no question of either/or for me. The clear cut answer is both. The stanley cup would likely matter more if i had to choose but its not by much. World cup/canada cup/olympic hockey is very very important and can enhance legends much in the same fashion the stanley cup finals matter. When you think of gretzky/lemiuex how much does the 87 canada cup matter. Lemiuex credits that tournament much for changing the way he thought the game and how he acted.

Even thoug its sacralidge im cheering for canada
