OK game the other night, got interesting at the Russian dicks tied it, but then Canada swung it's much larger dick...game, set, match.
Now we're in the final against...team Europe?
Like, seriously? Even Sweden is more hate-able than team Europe. It is not in-obvious to everyone (see what I did there @Regs? Dick move, I know) that this tourney is nothing more than some high quality exhibition. This isn't even World Championship caliber, in terms of the players really caring.
Find me in the same camp as the unpatriotic prick.
NHL preseason actually was more interesting to me. In the end, this was a stupid, meaningless tournament that was nothing more than a glorified exhibition season. You can't tell me the players all felt this was truly best-on-best, the pieces were in place, sure...but a 1997 Canada Cup this was not.
I'm kinda happy this flopped. I really, really love the hockey at the Olympics. Who doesn't? Everyone but the NHL owners.
I get that Betman is their hired gun, so really, this is on the owners. Fcuk 'em all. Likely they'll turn around and fcuk us in return, and kibosh the NHL player's involvement in the Olympics, but frankly, that may make those games even better at this point. Probably turn it into a U23 tourney, it'd be pretty good!
