It was not ugly! It was purely the inability to score (lots of chances) and some soft goals by the US goaltenders.

Simply put....hockey is now a global sport and North America better get used to it!

Hockey has always been a global sport.. Remember the Soviet Union? No-one could beat the Soviet Union on their prime. Or Checkoslovakia(which splitted in to Chech Rebuplic and to Slovakia)? Either country exists no more, but neither one was an american team. You guys in America just haven't been able to see across the sea (Typical American behavior). It's just that the smaller countries (like Finland) have risen to their level in the past 10-15 years.

And what comes to USAs hockey:Sorry, but you'll always be in the shadow of the Canadians.

Hats off to the Finnish and Sweden team. They were able to play as a team more quickly than any others competing. The USA and Canadian teams just could not play as a team. I'm just glad that the NHL is back. Go Sabres!!

Canada rocks it's just our staff made some bad choices and we had old guys who have no speed and didn't step up to the role of a leader if only Steve Yzerman and Mario Lemieux had come on the team and Mario not retired but even if they only got 2 pts think of the great leadership they'd have given to the team and c'mon the americans had no netminding and just no leadership but keep your chins up look forward to 2010. And congrats to the Swedes and Fins a new day has commenced in Hockey the European's have finally stepped up. But wow where did Switzerland come from hopefully they can improve for 2010 and you never noe maybe they'll become a force to reckon with.
Vancouver 2010 gonna be amazing

My name is Gen-ichi NISHIO , Executive Marketing officer for ACTEXO TEXTILES AND FABRICS LTD. I saw your advert on the web for employment and will be so glad to have you as our agent if you're still looking for job. Do check out our web site ( www.actexotextile.com ) for more details.
We've been selling our products for the past few years and we're lately facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling our products to Americans and canadians cos they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY ORDER/CHECK, which is difficult for us to cash here. We are looking for a representative in the states who will be working for us as a partime worker and we'll be willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldnt affect your present state of work.
We need someone who would be helping in receiving payments from our clients in the States. An agent who is responsible and reliable that will be handling the payment aspect. The payment will be addressed and sent to you and all you need do is to get it cashed, deduct your percentage and wire the balance back to any of our accountants/lawyers in our regional warehouses. The problem we have is getting someone that is really capable and trustworthy as though we surely have our way of getting anyone that tried to get away with our money. The FBI will surely be interested and get involved.
This offer is not going to cost you any amount cos all you need to do is to receive payments which will be sent to you via delivery courier from our clients, which would come in form of a money order/check get it cashed and send the cash to our accountants/lawyers via MONEYGRAM MONEY TRANSFER, and required charges for all transfer should be deducted from the money. If you're interested, kindly get back to me ASAP via this email .... so that i can feed you with more informations about the jobs.
Looking forward to your response.
