    Re: Why Canada will lose to the US...

    While we're at it, what's with the big psycholgical need for Canadians to qualify every statement about tomorrow's game? It's never, "The US has a great shot at advancing". It's always, "The US has a great chance at advancing even though, on paper, the Canadian team is far superior."

    Every single column, radio host, pundit....every one has to take a time out to remind us that the Canadian team is much better, but those pesky Americans might find a way. When did I miss the US dumping all of those NHL stars for some busch leaguers? Let Backes and Crosby battle in the corners and see what happens. Let pressure reign down on Price and Quick and see who buckles first. Who thinks there's a single American D that would goof up the puck at the wrong time? Anyone think Kessel, Backes, Pavelski, van Riemsdyk, or Kane will have trouble finding the back of the net? It's silly. Both teams are stacked wth the world's best talent.

    Same can be said of Sweden and the Finns. We get caught up with the jersey color and forget. There is zero advantage on paper to these final 4. It's all about execution on the ice.

    Because it's all about underdogs and chokers.  It's the only story anyone knows how to tell any longer.  It was actually quite funny watching and listening as the talking heads tried to find a way to describe a contest of wills between Chicago and Boston where you couldn't call either team an underdog and you couldn't really say anyone "choked" or didn't play up to the level expected of them except maybe in the 6-5 game.  It was adjustments back and forth with great players on both sides waging a war.  Honourable result for both sides; better if you're a Hawks fan.

    Stanley's fascination with individuals over teams is really over the edge, isn't it?

    Stamkos would  have opened up the floodgates offensively. Not enough mentioned on his absence. Tav will also be missed but duchesne is an admirable sub . Hes fast so watch oUt. This game Is so hard to call. 

    Usa will be more loose then canada .anyhow the anticipation for this game is anxiously awesome

    Congrats to the women hockey players for winning gold . Sure would be cool being in dressing room celebrating with them and if they would not permit me then maybe I could be permitted to go in the usa dress room to console them .

    I dont support my own country because they didnt pick one of the best player in the NHL , he is 21 , 6'3" 215 lbs, so talented, 24 goals, 22 assists and they didnt pick him .....Ryan Johansen would have done better than 80% of the actual forward on the team, he would have done much better than Sid the crying baby, and so so much better than Kunitz.....and that is one of the reason Canada will lose to the US.  I dont care. I support Finland and Tuuka from now on ...good bye Canada ....Gold to the fins, Silver to the US and bronze to Canada

     

     



    are you for real?....

    Canada doesn't need your support....

    Wait.  I hear something.  It's coming from the North.  It's feint, but unmistakeable.  It's a chant coming from north of the 49th parallel.

    Stanley!  Stanley!  Stanley!

    GM of team Canada!

    Stanley finns won't win gold.  

    Here's a possibility

    Usa men hockey -gold

    Usa women hockey-gold

    Of course the same goes for CAN but we expect canada to do it 

    I agree with kunitz - dont think he should be there

    Btw- ryan Will have his chance if he becomes as good as you say he will



    I am  dual Can and Usa so i win both ways if one wins but i agree with crazy Stanley Finns win lol

    I dont see us scoring 4 on Quick.   Its gonna be a 2-1 type game.  Here is hoping our awesome def are up for the task.  They will be challenged big time.   I hope perry benn getz match up against callahan brown backes.   Two awesome lines.

    I Agree Shuperman. My thinking was Canadians come out super strong and Hang on type game with the 4th goal an EN goal. But a 2-1 OT game would be great.
