Team Canada has a reputation for not necessarily playing nice. I know that it's nowhere near 1972, but we still kind of play the same way internationally.



What a freaking fun series to watch...seriously!

Anyways, we tend to take hockey very seriously, and can get a bit....rambunctious.

See the perfect example in Boone Jenner getting suspended for 3 games. It was a blatant late hit, and he had no intention in playing the puck IMO. Anyone that says he should have kept his head up (Pettersson) are idiots, as he didn't even have the puck when he got hit.
I never said I thought there was anything wrong or incorrect with what he said, I just can't see guys like the nuge, eberle, and hall really befriending a guy calling out a team they take a lot of pride in. I just don't feel Yak is going to meld with the group that well.
