. No one in Canada said this is our greatest junior team. There has been quiet a few question marks in goal and defence before the tournament started. Ignorant comments like this really irritate me especially when me and many others here are canadian. Its not an easy tournament to even get a metal in which you should know after the USA finished in the relagation rounds 2 of the last 5 years. At the end of the day these are only 17-19 year old kids who have tremendous amounts of pressure on them, heck this will be the pinnacle of quite a few guys careers.
You pretty much highlighted the reason why many outside Canada find it difficult to tolerate Canadians when it comes to hockey and why comments like the one you responded to are even made.
