I understand the thinking behind this, though I wouldn't suggest that people should feel sorry for Canadian fans. When supporting an NHL team, you always feel extremely happy when they win a championship. No NHL team ever comes close to having the massive talent edge that Canada has over the competition though. When Canada wins, there is a sense of relief more than a sense of happiness on many occasions.
For me its huge deal.. I feel sorry for US ans Canada because they wont never feel how to be underdog in international tournaments.. Finland will be always **** and win once in 20 years
Uhhh there's a very solid case that for the majority of Winter Olympic games, the US were an underdog in more than a handful of situations, especially pre-2000s. This is compounded by the fact that the US in 1980 was a prime example of exactly what you are talking about. Now, not so much, however I remember when it wasn't always like this. In my lifetime I've never seen the US win an Olympics and this last one was quite a trip. The 90s, though the development of US was apparent with the emergence of players like Chelios, Modano, and the like, weren't our best years.
Considering that since 1980 Finland has 5 Olympic medals to USA's 2, I don't exactly know how you can consider Finland an underdog but think that USA fans have it easy. Especially since our last gold is considered to be a "miracle" and the only one aside from that was now 50+ years ago. Also, not that the IIHF world championships matter too much (for North Americans at least) but USA and Finland have the same amount of golds.
USA Hockey is constantly being underrated and disrespected in every WJC and every few years leading up to the Olympics by hockey analysts. I think there's a real sense that our country doesn't produce top-level talent.
