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
I agree that the U.S. had the better overall tournament (they were solid from start to finish while Canada was piss-poor at the start), but on paper and on the ice in the Gold Medal game, Team Canada was superior.

I believe if those teams played a best of 7 series, Canada would win 4-1.
