    I am real sad that the US team could only muster one win.

    Still to our Canadian brethren who must be on suicide watch, I feel for ya. they also are coming home without any Tin.

    I can not believe that in the entire country (US) we have no talent...Modano and Tkachuk never score and goaltending forget about it. all the colleges and we never develop any talent. we suffer from Jurrassic park syndrome with all the old guys who never do anything, like that dinosaur Chelios.

    Our best players were the young guns like, Gomez, Erik Cole, and Gionta. these were the only players who legs made the plane for the trip over.
    If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

    You're in TAMPA for cryin out loud. Why you care about hockey. You should be down at Treasure Island inspecting bikinis!

    Also, don't knock Chelios, he's a Chicago Legend. Well, as far as I know he is. I don't watch hockey. It's for canucks, LOL!

    I got an old Navy friend in Gibsonton, lives in a Trailer Park. Went to visit him one summer. WOW! That was an experience!

    Hey don't slam on Chelios...If I remember right the RED WINGS are in first place!! He is a very good defenceman. Besides, the effin problem is most of the players goes back to their native country's. Draper went back to canada, Lang went back to the Sweads (I think). But your right about picking up the talent, throughout the leagues they should be able to get a heck of a lot better team than what they iced!! Same with Soccer, I can't believe with all the leagues and players that play in the USA that we can't field a team that can do better in the world cups!! I think it's all about MONEY!!

    Too many old guys, plain and simple. Canada should have chosen Crosby, their bad.

    Lots of second guessing by the media here too

    Bottom line, the Swedes, Finns, Czechs and Ruskies are pretty damn good.
    The North American boys seemed to lack heart.

    Good for you.
    Fortunately, I have cable in the office so I made sure I was there by game time so I could do "paperwork".

    I don't know.
    Seems strange Canada was held scoreless for three games.

    At least the Canadian woman kicked ass and won hockey Gold again.
    Some are saying never send men to do a womans job.

    They had a streaker or SOMETHING in the Mens curling match with Britan this morning, they went to a wide shot and then commercial.


    Chelly is to old for me well over 40. somebody should have surplanted him by now, just shows how bad they are that a 42 year old guy can make the squad.

    The only thing worse than American hockey is it's TV coverage already missed one goal due to commercials..that does not happen on CBC. (Canadian brodcasting Corporation)

    Crosby couldn't go....he's still lookin' for his two front teeth that got knocked out the first two weeks in the NHL.
