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
It's kind of funny to see Americans using the "your path to gold was easier to gold" excuse. The same Americans that used to whine when Canadians said their path to the final was easier in 2010.
