Canada put in their place. Good for Russia. Hopefully this means Steve Spott retires from coaching sports at any level permanently. IQ of maybe 50 he has. Of course I'm disappointed in the team but good God that was an embarrassing tournament starting with the darkness comments up until now, with handling defensemen and goaltenders, getting out coached in the game against USA, looking like a deer in the headlights on the bench... Just awful all around.

Still confused why Rielly/Murphy would ever be a D pair. That was some of the softest play I've seen on that OT goal.

I'm pretty sure Canada has been overzealous with our celebrations before, I don't like it when we do it so what Russia did if they were reacting to something that happened in the past, I can't be too upset. It would sting more had it been for a gold instead of a bronze.

You must be joking. That wasn't a real swing, it was a "why I oughta!" and nothing more.

Agreed. It doesn't look like he was trying to hit him, otherwise he would have. Nothing more than a taunt/threat.

Whoever is going on about Russians being soft should read a little history. This is one of the more idiotic things I have read in a while.

Don't be stupid he wasn't even close to hitting the guy.

Classless display by Russia there though.

Or when Canadian leaders murder 50 million people, we can start calling them "dirty". Oh wait, was that too long ago to be relevant?

They are not physical defence man, Rielly actually has the Ice Q to use other means to play defence, he was not on the ice for a GA until the last game. Lidstrom is not physical but is an excellent defender using smarts and an active stick. You don't have to be a physical D man to play good D.

Really Team Canada's defence, the guys we were depending on the most let us down. Harrington who is okay but seriously overrated compared to USA's D was a non factor, Hamilton the guy with the most hype going in was the most disappointing of all our D. The other guys were ok but nothing stood out. When Hamilton and Harrington are your number 1 pair, it's no wonder why Canada didn't medal.

Lol... yes let's go all the way back to 1972 to justify Russia's classless display after their win today. It's even more funny it was only the Bronze medal at that.

Harrington wasn't perfect but he wasn't bad.

I said before this tournament started; Harrington might be why we win this, Murphy might be why we lose. I think deep down we all knew that Murphy was gonna **** the bed.

There is no difference between then and now when it comes to intentionally breaking the other team's star player's ankle. It is a black mark on Canadian hockey and as long as we celebrate the '72 victory as we do, it will always be relevant.

But, Canada never shows poor sportsmanship these days, right?

4-0 goal, Marchand acts like he won Olympic gold in overtime and climbs the glass:



and, let's not forget:






I'm Canadian, but I can admit Team Canada has a long, long history of being *******s on the international stage.

How does Russia not win every year? Their squad plays together so much, they should have a clear advantage over all the other teams that are put together at the start of the tourney. Meh.

Agreed and I said this in my post, but he isn't a #1 pairing D man that would play on the USA team. I read the posts on him on this board, the guy was being written up like the next Drew Doughty or some great D man, he was ok, not great.

Um, I think your second video was evidence of the USA being dirty...wrong thread?

The first video...The whole point of people *****ing about what the Russians did was because it was AFTER THE GAME DURING THE MEDAL CEREMONY. Jesus, how thick are you? Big deal Marchand jumps onto the glass to all the Canadian fans.

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!
Yeah this is my favorite thing, for all the "Russians are scared" "Euros are soft" talk that comes out of the Canada camp, the amount of diving Canada did all tourney was a disgrace

The xenophobe himself. Oh, it must hurt him SO MUCH that the "soft russians" defeated Canada.

...this is just lunacy.

Every team was diving. They're all a disgrace, even the US.

buddy sometimes i love russia! they played great. they were arguably the better team tonight, and i honestly dont mind the taunting. They deserved it, they were better.

Canada really needs to rethink their strategy for these tournaments. I cannot believe how Reilly and Murphy played together. I can't even believe murphy played at all!
