If someone was new to hockey and you told them the best player in the world was on Canada, Doughty might be their guess. Second last guess would be Crosby (last is Kunitz). What a bum. So hard to cheer for him.

If Giroux was on the team, I'd be rooting for them, but I really don't have anyone that I really like on the team. Seeing players like Carter, Crosby, Kunitz, Nash, Subban, Perry...I just can't do it

Is there a rule that you can't kick the puck off a faceoff?

Kunitz stealing the puck from Tavares... Just for the hell of it?

If you didn't see the score of the game you would think the Finns were trying to protect a lead with the way they're playing.

They just said Benn didn't go to camp but made the team because of his strong play.

Yeah, if Giroux on the team they're a close 2nd for me, but there no way I can root for a team that doesn't have a single person I really like and a couple people I really dislike. I'm just happy Crosby isn't American haha

7) Sidney Crosby
Fair enough, lol.

I can't bring myself to root for Canada regardless if there's a flyer on the roster or not, last go around Richards & Pronger were basically dead to me for those couple of weeks. I may wish they do well individually but I still hope Canada loses every single game possible.

Lindros used to be my favorite player with Leclair as a close second but when international play came around Leclair & the US edged him for me.

If this goes to OT (I know there's a lot of hockey to play) would that make USA the first seed?

No, Sweden has 9 points so we'd take first seed then.

Pun definitely ****in intended. I bet Canada is glad they brought a bunch of "two-way" guys now. They're struggling against a Finnish team without 3 of its top 5 forwards.

Wouldn't Sweden be 1? I think US would be the 2 seed.

That's their game. They try and run with Canada, especially with the team they have now, they get blown out. They just wait for teams to make mistakes and grind out goals.

This game is almost exactly like the WJC Gold Medal game vs. Sweden. Sweden dominated time of possession, was clearly the more talented team, but Finland got great goaltending and scrapped together a few goals. Only difference is the gap in talent is a lot greater at this level.

Same. If USA is out of it though I would want my favorite player(s) to win it. That wants the case in 2010 and it sucked, especially considering the way it ended. I mean I was praising Parise, a hated rival at the time, for tying it up. The Olympics are weird like that.

Leetch & Richter back in day were examples as well for me. I could never hate them despite being on the Rangers but I couldn't root for them either however that would change international time.
