Tack Anders!

Before the tournament hopes were not that high in Finland so the Gold    was a sweet surprise for me at least!

That sounds like someone being a sore loser, huh?
BTW, why on Earth the tournament's MVP was given to someone who in the crucial moment failed so miserably (5 goals in one third)??? Perhaps the IIHF being run by a dentist is part of the explanation...

Anyway, congrats to Finland!!!

I know some folks have called out some of the Canadian players who passed on invites once their teams were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs, but these guys had every reason to pass. These guys finished an 82 game season and played an additional 4-7 games in the first round of the playoffs. That's a lot of games, and some of these guys were probably nursing injuries that since their teams were eliminated, they decided to recover from.

For many Canadian players (as well as US players), playing for the Stanley Cup is more important than playing for a medal at the World Championships. These guys will have a number of chances to try to win a medal for their country, but they won't always have a chance to win the Stanley Cup and get their name engraved onto it. If I were a hockey player, the only thing besides the Stanley Cup that would be worth winning is an Olympic medal.

I completely agree with you on that, the World Cup is not anything near to the prestige and meaning that e.g. the World Cup in Soccer has in soccer. And the fact that in hockey, it is played every year doesn´t excatcly contribute to making it more special. The Olympics are the true tournament for national teams, which is also shown by the fact that the NHL breaks during the olympics, but not for the world cup. But, after all, the Stanley Cup is the most important and most prestigeous competition in the sport.
