This would be the best promotion for the north-american fans. I hope that Finland and Sweden will play for the bronze because we have this confrontation situation....

I dont want Finland in final game because how our folks organized this event.

So Canada-USA wouldn't be best for north-american fans?

I'm hoping for a Canada - US rematch. The first game was very entertaining, and it would be nice to develop a rivalry akin to the one we have at the junior level.

Plus, the more success by the North American teams the more likely we'll get another WC on this side of the pond. (C'mon USA Hockey, don't you like money?!)

USA - Russia would be cool too as it would be rewarding to beat the clear favorites in this tournament.

For me it's always

Team A that deserves to be in the final vs Team B that deserves to be in the final

Usually makes for the best final

I always want Canada to play Russia. It's a clash of two different styles and it represents the pinnacle of the sport.

Hmm, hard one...

Sweden - Russia would me be more likely as someone mentioned. I didn't type that out of a homer perspective, but all we need is Fasth to become a monster saver. I know he can do it, he did it in WC Slovakia until the last game.

We got so much skills in this squad, i really believe they can do it.

Bronze will probably be USA - Canada ( Sorry Finland )

EDIT: Is it not pretty cool that no one has counted out Russia, what if they don't make it?
Note that down.

I don't think it matters who Canada plays, because truthfully a handful of people actually care about this tournament.

USA/Can has been a bigger hockey rivalry since more or less the 1991 Canada Cup. Definitely since the 1996 World Cup though.

Since the OP thinks it'd be good, screw the tournament and let's have RUS v CAN play 1 game championship.

To an earlier poster, the US and Russia cannot meet in the final.

It would likely get some decent time on the NBC sports network. The only way it makes ESPN is if someone murders somebody else.

CAN and USA pretty much hate each other at every level in every sport.

They could be playing women's wheelchair basketball and it would still be a close and chippy affair.

I agree. I always hate when people say you should cheer for this team or that because of this kind play or this rivalry. Sure there are some definite interesting ones, but sometimes the best is unplanned.


ps, i love your avatar
