no, my bad - i didn't think you were ragging on canadian fans at all - sorry if i came off wrong. just so you know - there are some of us (ha ha ha i.e me) up here who are genuinely interested in usa hockey.

iihf is brutal - esp. when the players are used to n. am. hockey. the us gets a lot of credit to adjusting to it way better than canada did. something that frustrates me about hockey canada (sorry for derailing the thread) is there's no accountability and no sense of adjustment - they just whine endlessly about bad calls, bad reffing, etc. give the us a lot of credit for not liking it, but dealing w/ it and playing on.
