It wasn't even a decade ago that Canada went 7 years between gold medals.
I still remember it like it was yesterday. We choked away 3 gold medals in a row in the WJ and went 50 years without an Olympic gold. Then in less than a decade, we had 5 world junior titles in a row to go along with two Olympic golds. We're being hunted now and other nations are doing a good job at getting us.
