I've always found it bizarre (although I suppose not entirely unexpected, given some of the national biases that exist here) that an "accomplishment" such as being selected to be on a Canada team in a best-on-best tournament is regarded by some as equal if not better as being an actual key participant (such as the starting goaltender) for another country that won such a tournament.

I suppose, given how a decent portion of the media seem to act as if the 1998 and 2006 Olympics never occurred, this isn't altogether surprising.
