The only part that truly stung in Canada winning the Gold was that Crosby scored the winning goal. If it was Richards or Pronger, it would've been celebrated.

Pales in comparison to theoretically being 2 goals away from winning the Cup.

Yeah, this is the most annoying thing about people saying Olympics are for amateurs. It's supposed to be the best in the world in these competitions. Some sports outside of the Olympics are obviously more lucrative than others, but Lindsey Vonn isn't waiting tables to make ends meet.
