Which one is the best?

Russia:Canada
Canada:USA
Russia:USA
Sweden:Finland
or
Chech:Slovakia

My pick is Russia:USA (new rivary in the making) Obama and Medvedev in the stands signing some nuclear treaty.
Everyone is tired of Canada with their Juniors and all

Checzh? Seriously?

To answer your question - Russia v. Canada and it's not even close.

My bad with the Czech.
I like Ovechkin vs Kane, kind of tired of Ovy vs the Kid

Why do you say that? you don't think U.S,Sweden,Czech Republic,Finland could beat Russia or Canada in one game?...all it takes is a hot goaltender to knock out any team.

Doesn't matter to me. Any two teams that have what it takes to get to the finals will be exciting to watch.

From a pure skill standpoint, Sweden V. Russia would be nuts but wouldn't be physical enough. USA v. Canada would be pretty sweet or Czech v. Slovakia.

However my favorite matchup would be either Russia V. US or Canada V. Sweden.

Russia V. US is skill v. Defense so it's straight up clash of ideals.

And Canada V. Sweden would be nuts.

So much bias...

Russia-USA

and it's really not that close, at all.

US was a bunch of rookies , I think maybe one or two had an NHL career longer than a year

EDIT: thought you meant previous finals.

I'd like to see USA- Canada

I want the top 2 teams by far to be in the Gold Medal game.

Russia versus Canada.

The US did not play the Soviet Union in the Final...

We don't know which the best "team" is yet.

I wanna see US-Canada to generate some interest south of the border. Could be a huge deal if the hype machine gets going. Especially with USA being the underdogs... everyone loves the underdog story.

I don't honestly see the Russians in the final, they have 4 elite forwards and what really else. A mid-range defense with Bryzgalov anchoring the team. Unless Bryzgalov absolutely stands on his head and steals a few games, the Russians won't be able to snipe and dangle past other elites like Sweden and Canada or Finland to a lesser extent....Sweden vs. Canada gold medal game.
