So impressed by the USA defense. Sticks in every freakin' lane possible. And not just the defensemen, but the forwards really helped out alot. A great team effort by them. Props!

Last year we had 7 CHL players, this year we had 9.

On top of that we lost two other players just before the tournament started.

Of course they would've made a huge difference for us.





But....we saved our worst game for the final.
Sure they COULD have, but they didn't. And who knows. I could make up a million hypothetical situations as well. What if all of them were on the team, then some of them got hurt, and the chemistry was all off. Then they don't win a single GAME! What a huge difference that would have been.

Nice to see gracious winners here as well - always thought Americans (at least in my experience) are very humble hockey players.

Hell yeah! Great job USA, well deserved. The Swedes gave us a great run and definitely deserve the silver.

Other than Al-Quida, there is not an anti-USA organization in the world than the IIHF. Fassel's worst nightmare is having to give gold medals to US players.

Trouba and Gibson were supposed to be teammates at the University of Michigan, scary thought.

Not true, we are much better. Silver is a lost medal, we even have Armia much higher in scoring Swedes can make themselfs feel better by putting pineapples to hang on their neck so they dont haveto go home with the color of the silver on their neck, haha losers .

We've heard this tune being played by SOME (which means not all) Canadians so many times. Let us not go down this road as well. You play with the team you have.

That 2nd fluke goal by Grimaldi stings but the reason the US won this tournament is because they were the best team, the gold winner is always the best.

Congrats to the US and I expected to feel like a Finn if we lost (a sad depressed figure) but I feel surprisingly ok. Sweden did have injuries on key players and I am proud of this team. We got beat by someone better and I'm ok with that.

Americans win the gold and Canada goes home with nothing.

Silver is a medal. But you wouldn't know would you. You haven't seen one in years

How the **** did Forsberg make the All Star Team??

He was garbage when it mattered, losing the puck every time it hit his stick.

And they get home-ice advantage next year. If they would have won it this year, you could have talked about a potential dynasty in the WJC.
