Sounds like it was for an allergy medication. Not like he was juicing.

This might be the most dominant Canadian team sent to the Olympics yet.

3 goals against, 17 goals for and beat Finland, USA and Sweden to get the gold.

It's crazy. They have dominated every single game. The defense on this team is just crazy.

3 goals against in 6 games. Are you kidding me lol.

Gold medal Canada!

Congratulations to Ted Nolan for having his team score against Canada in the playoff round.

It's going to be a little depressing going from watching this team to back to watching the Oilers haha

I dont think I have ever in my life seen a team move the puck up the ice as quickly and efficiently as this team. Polar opposite of the Oilers lol.

Can you imagine if this team ended up playing Russia. They would've caused a riot (...due to how badly they'd embarrass them on home soil) in Sochi, Moscow etc. Even if Sweden had Z, Backstrom and Sedin, I still have no doubt in my mind they would've won this game. Insanely dominant tournament.

This has to be a new golden era for Canadian hockey with this group of players and coaches, top down. I mean incredible, back to back Golds! We're the best baby! Couple moments I got chills down my spine and said "wow..." as to how beastly they were. Smart, fast, strong, skilled, full of heart and determination. Crazy!

Yeah me too.

I also am really going to miss the team commitment. Man, watching the Oilers after watching this team will be a joke.

I just hope the boys watched and learned that the best teams play 200 ft games.

To think how much better Canadian hockey is going to get think about Mackinnon, Hall, Seguin, Mcdavid, guys like Peitrelangelo, Subban, and many more future stars on D. We haven't seen a superstar goalie like roy, brodeur, ect but they can put out a very dominant team

seriously, I'm starting to believe it's time for the Oilers to move heaven and earth to get Weber. If they can retain RNH, and one of Hall or Yak, they should make a deal... 2 first round picks, Eberle, Gagner, one of Hall or Yak... I know it sounds crazy but he would make that much of a difference to the team, it would be like a cosmic shift. He needs to come to Edmonton and they need to help each other win a Cup!

And back to TC, I want to see Sid win another Cup, and I definitely want to see Weber win a Cup, the guy deserves it. Since our beloved Oil are totally out of it for the foreseeable future barring some changes, I'm hopping on the Chicago bandwagon again and hoping those guys add to their individual and team legacies. These are some modern day greats were watching, it's a new era.

Gross, you should wash your mouth out with that type of talk. Jonathan Toews will be the one winning cups, guy is a beaut!!

I have never watched a defense like that. Five game controlling number 1s and three shutdown number 2s. It was as perfect a defense as I have ever seen. They gave up almost nothing, and created more scoring than the best forwards in the world. Incredible.

Surely Kevin Lowe must not understand the importance of having a good D core. If he knows a little something about winning, it will be that a team built around dominant defence wins.

One of the three goals was a gimme on a bit of a misplay by Price--I believe against Norway. Scratch that one, and Price only gave up 2 'legit' goals in the entire tournament.

He was much better than Luongo was last Olympics, who let in some pretty bad goals at bad times. But the defense played better this time, as well, so it was a better overall team effort. Complete dominance, really.

Backstrom still only has himself to blame. Who doesn't know that pseudoephedrine is contained in basically every over-the-counter cold medication, and that it's banned by the IOC and pretty much every other sport governing body in the world. He was an idiot, and it's his own fault. Yet we're hearing the Swedish GM whine about it, and how it 'ruined the games' or something. First Forsberg, now the Swede GM. Wah wah wah. Never knew the Swedes were so damn whiney.
