Methodology is also important to me. The win is the only important thing during a game, but if its won during a shootout I tend to feel pretty ambivalent about it. The Habs beat the Lightning the other night, but it didn't FEEL like a win because of how they did it. They proved nothing to me with that cheap shootout win after blowing a lead.

Not that I'm saying the Olympics is meaningless, but it's the same general idea. I don't care for single elimination because it never convinces me that this team is better than that one (and god forbid the gold is won in a shootout... now THAT would feel cheesy). I'm a biased North American though, international tournaments are not my thing. I think only another Cold War could make me feel excited about them in a meaningful way.
