And soundly outplayed they clearly were.
Absolutely atrocious reasoning being used by PV there.
the US was the best team in 2002 throughout the tournament....
Canada got the garbage semi-final game with Belarus for God's sake, while the US had to already play their gold medal game against Russia in the semi's.
It was a complete joke then as it is now that the US which had the best record did not get to play Belarus instead of Russia...
Herb Brooks was pissed then, and I am still pissed now how that all went down...
Canada looked like crap that entire tournament but got bailed out in their semi bs matchup...
the US however was the better team throughout the tournament, and had to play the tougher matchups to get to the Gold...
PV's reasoning is solid and accurate
