I don't get it. Do all those Canadians live there, or did they seriously fly to Sweden for the World juniors?

For some of them, this tournament is bigger than the Olympics

Nor was I.

He wasnt bad, but his positioning was questionable and he made some bad reads.

I don't, they pulled Russia in the QF, they could end up playing Russia, Sweden, and Canada. If they win and get through all of them, it will be GOAT. I don't see it though. Canada has a knack to losing to teams they shouldn't however, so that would be a plus.

He's had a good tournament overall, but for his first real test, he didn't have a great game. It could have been worse, but hopefully he takes a lot from this loss and comes up big the rest of the way. Russia will put similar pressure on the defensemen Canada did.

I think the reason for some people the WJC is bigger than the Olympics because of the Canadian Juniors. That's Canada's own, while the NHL is pretty much a US league. Also plenty of people like college football more than the NFL because of how hard they play (though I think a lot of it has to do with your alma mater). Could be a mix of that and some nationalism and some people like the WJC more than the Olympics. Then again a lot of the Olympians played in Canadian Juniors too.

Frankly, the entire Team USA played poor after the first period. Skjei was just as bad as everyone else.

That's what I'm hoping for.

But if there's one thing I can say, it's that our American kids don't give up easy. Too bad we don't have a better goalie though.

Could be a good excuse to travel to Sweden for people who like to travel.

The one thing Eichel was doing I wasn't a fan of was taking a lot of low percentage shots when he carried it to the net and was forced to the outside. Getting the puck on net is a good thing, but I would have liked to see him either just drive the net or skate it back up the boards and try to find an open man. Which he did also, at times.

You don't need a good excuse to go there, just the money. I would love to go there any time.

There are many Canadians who plan their holiday/travel time for the WJC. These are people who are devoted to youth hockey. Many of them don't follow the NHL, other than to keep an eye on their favourites who make it to the bigs.

Pretty sure sarcasm was intended as traveling around the world watching hockey is about as awesome a lifestyle as any of us hockey nuts could want.

As someone who prides himself on his world travel, Scandinavia is somewhere I would give give my left nut to travel to. I would gladly jump from a 70 ft fjord into ice cold water solely for the fact to say I did. :laugh;

Full disclosure: losing a nut is NOT optional! Happy New Year!

I have four friends that are there, and they flew over from Atlantic Canada. I could have gone too, but work just did not cooperate. That arena is electric every game.

As stated a little later in this thread, this is a BIG tournament for Canadians. Losing is rarely an option.

As an aside, I think I'll attend in 2016 in Finland. And most likely next year when it's in Toronto/Montreal.

The time difference kinda ruins it when it's in Europe so a lot of people don't/can't watch on these years. When I was a kid some years in school the teachers would stop teaching and we would just watch the games. Seems silly now. When it's in Canada or the US everyone and their dog pays attention and watches the tournament in the evening, though.

The Vancouver Olympics were of course 100x bigger than any WJHC, that was insane. However, I do think that when the games are so early in the day like in 2006 and I guess 2014 it's hard for people to get into. I don't think I watched any of the 2006 Olympics.

That's not silly, that's awesome. I wish our country shutdown or made exceptions the way Canada does for hockey.
