You now have exactly two Olympic gold medals in the last 50 years.

Exactly the same number as the U.S. and Sweden.

I love Canada and Canadians but give it a rest junior.

For now, congrats on a great game.
The 50 years gold drought was a story line drummed up by the media to sell better Olympic hockey in 2002. Us Canadians obviously wanted to win the gold at the Olympics, but we all know what Team Canada had proved in the numerous best-on-best tournaments over the past couple of decades.
