Ha, ha, ha.... got to love a Yank with a sense of humour good enough to suspend reality. Turin is going to be a REPEAT of Salt Lake City. Women's Olympic Hockey Gold and Men's Olympic Hockey Gold.

Oh, by the way. Where did the USA hockey teams finish at Salt Lake City? You see, I don't keep track of the loosers. Big grin

Steve

p.s. Hello and Happy New Year to you Phylis

Solid game by the boys last night. Sutter is undefeated as coach since taking over the Jr. Nats. and that includes exhibition games.

Not one member on the US team would make the Canadian team, and i am very serious when i say that.

Gomez is a fine player, one ANCFlyer would be proud of, but he is not Canadian caliber.

Only if Don Waddell comes to his senses and drops Esche as one of the goalies in favor of Ryan Miller. Our goaltending is our biggest issue. We haven't had a solid goalie since Mike Richter.

I give the US Women's team a better chance of capturing gold than the Men's team.

Not to many, growing up there wasn't a lot of Hockey interest at the HS level. It has picked-up in the last 10 years though, so there will probably be more.

Ty Conkin and Scott Parker are from the ANC area and there are plenty of minor leaguers who are as well.
It's too bad that the Vancouver fans booed the US team. I think it was a combination of that hit by Johnson (or Jackson) and the idiot in the White House. Canada still shows quite a bit of respect for the states, Vancouver is almost a Seattle suburb (tounge in cheek).
However, Hannity the loser talked about it on his TV show tonite and called the US team the most classy of the tournament (even though he proably did not watch any of the games), rehashed how the Canadien fans booed the Star Spangeled Banner in 3/03 and said that Canada has no need for a real military since they are always hiding behind the US. The fans behavior only gave Hannity and his neocans, talking points for the day.

Vancouver has the same problem that Portland Oregon has, it is fully of people who consider Seattle too straight laced of a town for them.

There's one NHLer from that hockey hotbed of Nebraska:
http://www.newyorkrangers.com/team/playerinfo.asp?playerid=262

Traditionally, the areas that most US NHLers are from are Minnesota (The State of Hockey), New York, Massachuetts, and Michigan. You look at the Team USA roster for the upcoming Olympics, and that shows it even further.

Well when we compete in a "world" tournament there are other team from around the world there so there is a possibility of not winning. Unlike the "world series" where an American team always wins. Ya I know screw the Blue Jays!

From the article....
To a certain degree, the fans were within their rights to vilify American defenseman Jack Johnson because of a hit against Steve Downie earlier in the tournament
I think this is why they were booing. A hit?...ya with a nasty elbow. Anyways thats part of the game. Shit happens.

What impressed me was Johnson, after losing the Bronze medal game, skated around the rink and waved to the "fans" in lieu of a one fingered salute. I read some comments about what happened and why he did his "lap" but can't seem to find it. He sort of said, it was his last time on the ice, he knows that the Canadian fans were upset with the hit and understands the actions, accepts them and will move on with life...no hard feelings.

I thinks its all forgotten now. Leave it to the press to put some more feul on a smoldering match.

Go Leafs Go !!  Wink

Too bad, there was some really good hockey by all teams.

Just a side note, i take no responsibility for what the hippies on the west coast do or say.  Wink

And another side note, in the next jr. world championships, 12 lads on this years winning team are eligible. OH MY !! We will be the favorites and come fourth... biggrin  j/k

Exactly. Canadians do nothing but play hockey here all year round. This shows especially in the olympics when we only get 20 medals.

I've never cheered for a team Canada in hockey mainly because of their style of play. I'd rather see an extremely talented team like that of Russia score pretty goals then big hits and toothless players like that of Canada.

Thank god Sutter is the coach and not you!!  Wink  Wink  Wink

Russia really did score in that game.

The only reason that they don't want Todd playing in the olympics is because he is such a huge asset to the team.
