Fantastic finish today to close out a great 16 days. 2 Fins and 2 Swedes on the All star has really pissed me off as it is very disrespectful to the greatest hockey power in the world. # Typical IIHF BS.

Very happy to see Marin St Louis play so well today. It had to really tough not to get a single shift against the Americans. All class Pepe the way you handled that.
@ingy56 @Zep2 Doughty and Price were two big omissions on the all star team. Typical IIHF, screwing Canada.
We may have struggled finishing up front, but how does a team give up 3 goals over 6 games, wins the gold and yet does not have a D or goalie win an all star birth ? Pathetic and embarrassing for the IIHF.
@ingy56 I don't recall the situation with Selanne and the Leafs. Was he interested in coming here ?

@TheCanucksnaphook @JantzIt won't be the snoozefest that the earlier game today was.

@TheCanucksnaphook In a 6-3 loss......... I can live with that !
Part of Price's fan club for the next 2 1/2 hours. If he can match Quick....... we are moving on to play Sweden.
I was in our school auditorium as a 7 yr old when Henderson scored his goal.
@TheCanucksnaphook Doc was impressive yesterday and i will be back today.
Great Tale of the Tape. Here we go Canada. The curlers and Ladies have done their part....... now it is up to the Boys.
@darthNihilus Time for you to find another site unless you're not Canadian.

At least Bolland is not acting like Switzerland, he was very funny yesterday.Not a fan of Kessel and JVR today.GCG
The whole Cdn Olympic team has been on fire since yesterday. We just need the men to do their part coming up. Getter done boys !
I think Orpik and Martin will be victimized a few times tomorrow. Lucky Blues fans have 3 D playing in this game....... no wonder they are a top team.
@Savo43 @JantzWill always love Burkie, we really needed his swagger..... when he came on board. Was very sad to see him go but Nono has done a very nice job and will continue to improve the club.
@Savo43 @Jantzlive and die with them man......... thankfully we have turned a corner for good now.
@CanuckUKinToronto @JantzKeeping my expectations in check. We will see if they hit my pre season prediction of 99-102 pts. The defense will have to be better and I don't even have to name names. lol
@Dangle_My_Berries @JantzAhhhhhhhh......... no kidding. Probably has something to do with a 47 yr drought. It would be a closer contest with a red Wing fan who at least one a cup 4 times in the last 20 years.
I am very surprised that many of you don't have any enthusiasm for Olympic hockey. With the Leafs only breaking a 9 yr drought even to make the playoffs, it is all that we have had for a very long time ( winning Olympic gold 2 of the last 3 times ). Good news is the Leafs will be in the post season in consecutive seasons and this year they will win a round.
@mikeshave Win or lose for them, there will be a let down playing the Islanders the first game back. Carlyle said Getzlaf and Perry never recovered in 2010. I don't expect that with Phil and JVR.
@traNsplantEdneWfie I was thinking 4-2 Canada. I'm hoping we play like we did against Russia in the Quarter finals in 2010. We either led 4-0 or 4-1 after 1 and without a doubt that was the most dominating period of hockey I have ever seen. So many Cdn snipers in a bit of funk now , a couple will break out tomorrow.
@traNsplantEdneWfie @Bruffins Amazing that the last 2 Olympic seasons leading up to the Olympics that the Canadians could barely if not even win a single exhibition game. Once the tournament starts we just find a way to win.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan That bites...... I'm trying not to jump out of my skin as we still have 15 hours to go.
@Bruffins @JantzA solution would be to have better officials for the ladies. Never been a soccer fan however, I will watch the odd world cup game when hanging up with diehard footies.
@Bruffins Wickenheiser was spent ( and has really lost a step ) and clearly there was no penalty when having the luxury of watching the replays. Dineen was pissed because he really wanted a penalty shot. Tough break for the Yanks however, no excuse for blowing a 2 goal lead with 3 1/2 minutes to go.
That comeback was one for the ages......... lets not reference the one from last year that we are still getting therapy for.
Congratulations girls, so proud and happy for you all.
@Cameron19 Would be surprised if Wheeler would draw in.
Saw your post last night about Bergeron being part of a checking line, I would suspect with Marleau and possibly Nash.
Heard that the lines were the same in practice again with the exception of Duchene stepping in for Tavares. US has last change and I expect Babcock to utilize a checking line against Phil.
@Mattmark Slow clap for you Mattmark ! I love it me.

@ingy56 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan@Jantz@CanuckUKinTorontoI also heard back in the day that Smith was real boozer and that was why he was dealt.
@Yaknowwhat Well said sir !
@loomx @Jantz@BruffinsCrosby was brutal in the 2nd and 3rd, he better find his game on Friday although he is not alone in that department.
@loomx @JantzWell then I wish we had a site for pro Canadian fans. I can respect Nolan and the goalie standing on his head however, it would be no different if we had smoked them 6-1
@ingy56 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan@CanuckUKinToronto@JantzI always thought Ley was a dick although Pat Quinn sure liked him.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan@ingy56@JantzI have a really nice magazine of the Summit series braking down every game. It is one of my favorite collectables.
@loomx @JantzNot sure about Backes, but Callahan and Brown were on the 2010 team and were locks for this team. So clearly you wanted Lucic and what other power forward to be on Canada ? This is the team we have and I'm in 100 %. Some people can't cheer for Canada because PK and Price are on the roster....... what a joke..... its embarrassing.
@loomx @JantzIt is our national sport ( sorry Lacrosse ) and having suffered with the Leafs not winning a cup since I was 2 and my Dolphins becoming a joke of a franchise...... it's about all I can hang my hat on. World Jr's spoiled us but there is no comparisson to winning Olympic gold.
@wiski @JantzThanks, i will tune in.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Gilbey93God i hope your right.
@Yaknowwhat No team play...... same old story. Not sure if it was mentioned earlier but he was the only Russian to do an interview in the media area after the game. Every other player stormed into the locker room.
@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto@JantzThat is the way it should be. I hope we smoke em 5-1 on Friday. No allegiance to Kessel whatsoever until after the game ends.
@loomx @Jantzit won't mean shit if they lose on Friday. Canada stunk until the Quarter final game in Vancouver. Once they pasted the Russians 7-3 they never looked back.
How are they built so well ? Because they took TJ Oshie as a shootout specialist and left Bobby Ryan and the Johnson bros at home.
@CanuckUKinToronto @JantzI have to be careful, because I was getting pissed at the number of guys on here watching the American game.
I didn't watch one second of the US game and it pisses me off that it is so hard to see any highlights....... I heard Pavelic was a sieve.
@ingy56 @TheCanucksnaphookThey play a team game better than anyone left.
I guess I come from a different era because no matter how big of a Leaf fan you are how can any Canadian be cheering for team USA ?
@loomx @Bruffins Didn't you say earlier today how shit Canada was playing because we struggled to beat Latva ?
He was and JVR got robbed of a 3rd assist on Backes' goal. Team USA looked good and Slovakia was incredibly bad.

Emphatically ................. What a knob you are hughson
Based on 1 goal........... Bit of a stretch.
That's the way to respond to a shitty goal
