More vulgarity. Nice. You really are too sensitive about what some (many!) people are saying about OV and Semin.

I wonder if they are sitting around worrying about what people think of you and your angry/crude posts here? Probably not.
They are too busy watching Malkin carry the Russian team and take his game to levels neither OV or Semin will see again.

Ovechkin, Semin, and Malkin were all valuable parts to the 2012 World Championship Russian squad.

They like beating up everyone's B or C teams at tournaments like this with all their top players playing, but suck when it is best on best for all the teams involved. At least Canada won 3 of the last 4 best on best tournaments. If not for Hasek in 1998, Canada would have won gold that year, while Russia choked that year as well with their star power. I will respect Russia once they win something that is best on best, since they have not done so. This tournament is not everyone's best on best- the top players of Canada and USA who missed the playoffs are on the golf course enjoying life somewhere. I do respect Ovechkin and Semin in never turning down the WHC. It means more to Euros than North Americans plain and simple.
Lol, 2006 Olympics ?

Post of the year.
I like the reasoning too.

In 98, if not for Hasek, Canada would've won golf (instead they lost to Czechs and Fins and finished 4th, go figure... apparently Hasek played for Finland too)...
But Russia, when losing to the Czechs, like Canada... "choked".
Yet won silver.

I like you, my man, I think you're the next big thing on HF!

Ah... A trick question. You got me. You were correct in assuming I did not watch the game.
