    Then let me express my sorrow... I am a huge hockey fan and was so hoping Team USA (underachieving spoiled atheletes) would bring home the gold... needed some kind of fix... at least we have a new minor league hockey team beginning in October so there will be something.

    I actually like hockey a lot, especially the "international" game. Much more flow, skill involved.

    I remember watching the Olympics in college, cheering for the Czech Republic to beat Canada in the semi finals behind Hasek's brilliant play. That was a hell of a game, and a great shootout!

    I was actually stunned when the USA won the first World Cup back in 1996 (though it did seem to be slanted in favor of the North Americans). To tell the truth, unless we have another major, high profile hockey moment like we had back in 1980, or until the NHL adopts a more international flavor in it's rules, our national team will be near the bottom of the "Big 6" countries for a while.

    @LTD:

    I knew there was a vibe I felt from you that wasn't quite right! :lol:

    I was born and raised in the Chicago area, the Red Wings have ruined too many hockey season for me ;).

    I am definitely watching, and cheering for Canada all the way!! I'm really worried that they won't bring home the gold unless they fix their defensive problems.

    I just wish the games weren't all on at 8:00 am, while I'm at work....

    I watch the recordings that are televised later, but by then you've heard the outcome of the games and it takes out most of the excitement. Though they can still be exciting - the Canada vs Slovakia game was excelent, and even though I knew Slovakia wasn't going to get a fifth goal I was still on the edge of my seat. :D

    There are some aspects of International Hockey that I like, and think the NHL should consider, such as no red line, but I hate the big ice :rolleyes:

    The odd thing is that I usually don't watch the worlds because NHL playoffs are usually on :lol:

    I need to stop actually playing hockey and D2 and pay attention. Normally I root for our brothers in the north, but you gotta love Sweden. Czech republic and Finland produce awesome hockey players though, Milan Hejduk is so good, but so modest.

    It's great competition. I'm glad that Canada beat Slovakia ... but looking at Slovakia's lineup and their bigtime scorers was a huge concern. Glad they made it (barely).

    Go Canada! The finals are at 2 pm eastern time. I'm a little concerned though. They will be up against a well balanced team with decent goaltending. Final score 4-3 in canada's favour

    I believe in a more goal-less game. Probably 2-1 to Canada.
