Bronze Metal may be more or less worthless, however the Bronze Medal, is not. It's an honor to win any medal in the Olympics, see how many countries compete their hardest and don't even win a single medal.

The opportunity to win a medal in hockey for your country happens to, at most 20 people in the ENTIRE COUNTRY. THE ENTIRE COUNTRY!!!! And, it happens, at most, 4 or 5 times during a players career, but more often than not, not more than two or three times, if you are very fortunate. A player has the chance to win the Stanley cup for sometimes 15-20 years in their career (at least theoretically) and there are something like hundreds and hundreds of players on 30 teams who have the opportunity to do so.

The Olympics for many athletes is >>>>>>> The Stanley Cup.

and frankly, for me, it's about the same in terms of importance.
