The Swedes skates much! better,cycled better,in general played better fundamental hockey..but lost.Why? The USA seems to have a knack for generating good players who know that every shot on goal represents a scoring chance regardless of how pretty or stylish.We know HOW to win.It sometimes defies logic.BTW the Russians celebrated like they had won gold( it was only bronze) and the way they taunted the Canadian bench afterwards is inforgivable.

It was a great tournament and to see Ferguson and Larianov again was very gratifying.The original Red Army team had such great players.Yskushev where are you?

THE NHL has "ended" it's strike...but now I am on strike! Screw the NHL and their greedy owners and players.17,250 in attendance per game cannot sustain ridiculous contracts and wages.Make the game Internatinal like the World Cup and make it about pride and love of the game again.The game us fascinating,the33 skills amazing but the greatest sport on earth is now controlled by pigs.
