I would think this gloating is more directed at the various European fans rather than the USA. In Canada we take pride in being the top hockey nation in the world, yet since Torino we've had a lot of pushback coming from across the pond with that 7th place finish and Nagano constantly rubbed in our faces. Even going into these Olympics on home turf it seems the majority outside of Canada were picking Russia or Sweden as the top team and favourites to win. So while we shouldn't overdo it I'd think us Canadians have earned the right to gloat a little.
