Canadian writers were bemoaning the death of Canadian hockey, and American writers, the few there were, were proclaiming American dominance of the sport. All complete bull turd, but I guess you have to write something in your column. Anyway, far be it for me to tell Canadians which game was bigger but my personal opinion is that 2002 was a more important win.
I'm sure there are a great many Canadians who will agree with you. There were lots of interesting storylines heading into both gold medal games.
