Certainly the quality of hockey that was played was superb. The fans were not upset. If I had to say, here are my thoughts.
I. Canada lost. Even though the series was so very close until the end (read my book on it) many people in North America look at the end result and say "Canada won only one of eight games so it was a disaster".
II. The NHL wasn't involved.
Here is a question though. What do people in Russia say about this series?
