I thought "Miracle" was an excellent movie.
And in all fairness, the Canadians can be pretty fricking arrogant. For a country & culture with such a huge investment in the sport to have now won the Olympic Gold only twice in the last fifty years is not terribly impressive.
That's the same number of hockey Gold as the U.S. and Sweden have in the same period.
.....and they needed overtime and a frenzied home crowd to help drag it through the door by a hair.
So imo Regehr's comments demonstrate that the Canadians could use a lesson or two in humility. Not terribly surprising since a lot of Canadians spout the same dross regarding their supposed hockey pedigree.
I feel we stand a good chance of being the tutor over the next decade or so.
But for now congrats Canada. Se ya next time.
