If it was something like Claritin then it had to have had Ephedrine in it or else it wouldn't matter the other ingredient isn't a PED.

This feels good, but still doesn't touch playoff hockey. I'll take a Rangers Cup 100% of the time. Fly everyone home and let's get back to business.

If you and your team doctors cannot keep control with thats on the illegal substance lists, thats really the joke here. Incredibly embarrasing for Sweden and the Swedish team.

This was a fitting ending to the worst Olympics in recent memory.

Can't be bitter; just have to be better. That is the takeaway for USA Hockey.

Sad to see Henrik lose. No matter the game, I can never enjoy anything with a losing Henrik. At least everyone in the game remained healthy.

Not even just hockey. USA played a good tournament up until the Finland game. They met expectations, people are just upset they didn't exceed them. I just hate seeing the same team win all the time.

But the whole Olympics were terrible. I'm a big fan of the Olympics are get really pumped up for them. But from the time zone difference to NBC's coverage to Russia being a terrible host. Just an awful Olympics.

Looking forward to Rio 2016.

Lundqvist on the all-star team, but Price awarded best goalie.

Yeah, I'm with you. I'm a fan of the Olympics in general and I couldn't really get into it like I usually do. Rio should be a good one, the time difference will be more manageable than Sochi.

Henrik deserved better this tournament, but another medal in the cabinet is nothing to scoff at with a beat up Swedish team.

LOL @ Selänne getting MVP.

Karlsson and Price were the only candidates IMO.

How is that possible? Is it an automatic to be best goalie if you win the gold?

Backström's failed test will not affect the placing of the teams. For a team to be disqualified at least two players have to test positive for a banned substance. But I guess Backström won't be getting his silver medal because of this.

Canada got a pretty easy final against a crippled Sweden.
Probably the most boring Olympic Final so far.
Backstrom getting banned from the final because of allergy medicine is kinda lame but rules are rules I guess...

I was surprised how much offense the big ice surface took out of the game. In retrospect, it wasn't the most thrilling tournament, Canada just shut everyone down. They deserved to win.

I think with H. Sedin, Zetterberg and Bäckstrom this could've been an awesome game. This way the Swedes really couldn't generate any real offense. Anyway Congrats Canada and now let's get Rangers hockey back fast!
