Expected result, after all Finland only wins something every 15th year. Suomi over and out.

(take this comment with a grain of salt)

Every 16th year would be more correct.

Don't call the Canada/World Cup best on best. Its a Canadian tournament played in Canada (with a few games in the United States that don't jeopardize Canada's unfair advantage), owned and operated by Hockey Canada and the NHL players association in Canada, with Canadian referees (except for games where Europeans play against each other, and don't affect Canada's unfair advantage), and played in front of Canadian fans. What if one NHL team could play all Stanley Cup games at home, assign team employees to referee the games, and make rules that apply to opposing teams. Canadian fans would raise absolute hell over it! Olympics as best on best, yes; Canada/World Cup, hell no! It is not a legitimate international tournament featuring equal competition.

In my opinion best on best tournaments don't exist. There are always players injured and such things. For example what if Giroux gets injured before the next Olympic games? Do we have to cancel the tournament because it's not best vs best anymore?

I disagree the only "easy" goal which he could have saved was 6th goal of Russia. By all others goals hed couldn't do anything the shots were just too good.

A rough summary:

A bunch of russian hockey fans were, in an organized manner, blocking Finnish fans from being able to get their pre-reserved tickets for the game. After the deadline until which the reservations were valid, the russians stormed to the counter to claim the tickets.

This kind of behavior is something I have no words for... Good thing I wasn't there to witness it.
Why didn't they just beat the **** out of them?

Giroux possibly won't make the Sochi team

Canada will be stacked... But not THAT stacked. Giroux is already one of the best players in the NHL, and he will most likely only get better. I don't see how he doesn't make Team Canada.

Organizers already commented it as false...Iltalehti again made a story out of their ***** and with color pen. There were rush but they made two different lines. So no need to bash Helsinkians.

I would use the very same yardstick on the WC for at least 40 years. Just one man's opinion.

Seriously with this team of stars playing the way they played, no team would have matched them today. They lost in front of the Champions.

That should have been the final !

Well, we had our chances for upset, but you would need a goalie producing miracles and very efficient finishing (from a country specializing in non-efficient finishing) against a non-disorganized Russia - the scoreline should have been more respectable, but by far the better team won. It's hard to see what chances will Slovakia have against this mad team, but I guess in sports anything can happen...

*Malkin makes it 4:1.*

1st Russian TV-announcer: "Goal! Good-bye, team Finland".
2nd announcer: "Well, it's not over yet..."
1st: "I said good-bye, not farewell"

Funny, looks like the second guy is concerned about the advertisers.
