He might have tuned into the wrong games

I can't get excited about hockey on that big ice surface. So boring.

more excited about the world cup, because i'll probably be able to go to some games, but international hockey always excites me.

I also never understand the ******** canadian and american fans after the world championships. I live on a continent full of sore losers.

I on the other hand like both ice surfaces but can't stand NHL rules which may make players ineligable just because they are banned from the NHL.

The refs were also very odd in the last world cup, but I am not so sure that was because of their bias, could've been just a fluke.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if you had more enjoyment seeing Canada lose than Sweden winning.
Almost

In the two games between us, Sweden were better in 4.5 periods, Czechs in 1.5.

Jagr said they were lucky in the first game, and Sweden were even better in the second game.

You had the better goalie, we had better skaters.

So you like it when teams trap and don't forecheck for the entire game?

I enjoy the world championships.

Why are now talking about making changes? (I think I know why)

It's been a disadvantage for Canada for years and I couldn't care less.

It's also been a disadvantage for European countries too.

But it has a history behind it....leave it alone.

Without getting off topic, perhaps you could pm a real answer to me, as i live "here" too and I didn't here a single peep about the refs blowing it, the other teams cheating and taking drugs, the Germans poisoning us, the game times, poor hotels, etc.

Not a fan of the large ice surface, just doesn't do it for me. However I'm looking forward to the next one so we can redeem ourselves, maybe

Not gonna lie, I'm always kinda pumped up whenever we play whether it be juniors or seniors(except for Euro Hockey Tour). Next year will be extra exciting because of our change of coaches and to see whether it will affect our WCH squad. Hopefully we'll be staying young.
