This hurts more than seeing the US win.

That tournament they started putting officials at the benches for cellys because there was an incident with a US player on the bench eventually swinging his stick at a Canadian (maybe the other way around) or something like that.

They taunt at the end of the game so that they dont get beat up. Classic russian cowardice.

Umm, they only did it after the US did it. And there were many tears shed over it too, so I'm not seeing your point.

Congrats to the Russians, it was a good game to watch!

Not sure why people are complaining over the taunting, Canada pulls their jerseys all the time and did it in the round-robin versus Russia.

All this "classy" and taunting talk is funny, and the problem is overblown.
Taunting losing team after victory is better than taking a run at your rival... or swinging your stick.

Btw this Canadian team was such a bunch of fake tough guys! I remember some of Canadians tangling with Zharkov and embellishing every Zharkov's punch trying to draw a penalty. Pathetic!

Well, as stated, my point was that Canadians have done it so I don't need to imagine it.

I don't really need to play the who did it first game, I'm not a 4 year-old.

Well the fanboy comment is silly if you have read how many time I have critiqued Leafs players here. Visit the Grabovski thead friend, but you are a Habs fan? I understand why you would think so with the complaining you guys do around here about ice time.

GG Russia.

Can Canada bring back Pat Quinn to coach? Last two gold medal wins came under him.

There's an NHL lockout and we can't even medal at the World Juniors? Could this year for hockey suck anymore?

People really that upset over some taunting/other silly actions done by teenagers in the heat of the moment?

Not upset, just having a chuckle over the double standard.

Seems to me that team Canada lost because they lacked good defencemen and solid goal tending. Both of which allowed the Americans to take gold. Offensively we were good, although I can't imagine what it would be like if we didn't have RNH.

No complaints regarding Gally from me - just trying to keep it real. I just thought that you went to great distances trying to absolve Reilly.

It's not a double standard. Canadians would never taunt after an OT victory that eliminated the other team. They never have done that, and they never will.

Really though. I love how when it's another country it's not a big deal, but if it's Canada it is. Sort of like when I saw an American fan come in this thread to post "USA USA USA". If Canada won and we went in the USA/whoever thread and did that, **** would go off.

It's different pulling on your jersey when you score, you know, during the game, rather than when the game is over. The Canadian players that do that when they score, they don't skate over to the bench or do it directly in the face of the opposing team. It's a bit different. They just look like sore winners.

You'd never see a Canadian player do that when they won in OT, in the Bronze medal match to boot. Don't Canadian players look dejected when they come 3rd?

Denault was obviously in the wrong too.

For any of my fellow Canadians whining and crying about how the Russian team acted today . . . until a Russian does something as despicable and pathetic as this to a Canadian, you should all keep your mouths shut.

Murphy too? I actually defended a Carolina prospect more from that post, he has been taking a beating this tournament, some of it justified, but that one play was a whole lot of bad luck, some good, and a great play by a very talented player. That's all I was pointing to, to posters that don't look at the detail of a play. The puck doesn't take a funny bounce and who knows it's a great play the other way.

Yeah, let's compare 1970's hockey to 2013, all while ignoring the vast differences in the sport between the two time periods.
