No, it is embarrassing and no, Sweden was not a good team.

Whether you care about this tournament or not (I don't), it's still embarrassing when Canada sends a team filled with NHL stars, including a Rocket Richard winner, and you can't even advance to the Medal rounds - I mean, 4 years in a row? Really? C'mon.

Sweden had 8 NHLers (including 2 goals; both back-ups), and lost their best defenseman to a 5-minute kneeing major and Canada still couldn't win. That's sad, no matter how little you care or how you slice it.

Again, I don't care about this tournament. If Canada wins, good, if they don't, it doesn't bother me. But just because it doesn't bother me, doesn't mean it's not embarrassing in terms of the view from the hockey world.
