Some Canadian hockey fans need to learn that they are no longer the undisputed dominant national team. Back in the old days you really only had 2 national teams that were any good Russia and Canada. You could pretty much guarantee one of those two would be winning the competition. Now you have basically 6-8 teams (Canada, Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Czech, Slovakia, and Swiss) that are capable of winning on a given day.

Some Canadian hockey fans still act like when they lose there is no way it should have happened.

Like todays Canada/USA game, I'd say there was more talent on the Canada roster but USA was no slouch opponent who was clearly capable of winning. But yet some people make it out to be some epic collapse.
