C'mon man, it's just for fun. This is a short tourney, so they have to do whatever possible to get everyone comfortable and playing at their best. Do we really need to get up in arms at every little thing Hockey Canada does or does not do?

I just prefer it left in the dressing room.. A game cape is awarded, the boys have a laugh for 30 minutes...then on to the next game... I don't get the parading around the arena in it.... and it's just not the cape with me, it's a hole host of issues I have with the grand idiots in charge at Hockey Canada. If it were just the cape, then I probably wouldn't give a ****, but it isn't so I don't....

You're seriously complaining about a cape. Does it embarrass you and your nation that these kids are wearing a cape to post game media scrums?

As I said dude, I have no problem with the tricks and motivational tools Hockey Canada uses, but it should come from the players and it should be kept in the dressing room.

Could Duthie cry about the times anymore? It is getting very old, get over it, not like TSN doesn't compensate him well to sit and enjoy games.
