Sorry, can't let you get away with broad stroke generalizations like that, because "on the whole"/"for the most part"/"universally", Canadians don't downplay hockey of any kind. No matter where the tournament, or who's playing, we expect to win and are disappointed when we don't. Even those who you have seen "play down" lost tournaments can probably be balanced out by those on the side of the victors who make the win out to be more of an accomplishment than it really was.
