See, as a Canadian I think the 20 speed skating medals Holland has accrued at these Olympics is more impressive than any Gold medal in hockey ever could be.

Canada is more than just a hockey nation and its importance is not the be all and end all IMO. It is no more or less important than any other sport in the Olympics even if it is given an inflated sense of worth.
