Man if I were a GM who had a Russian player over there for these Olypmics, I'd be seriously worried about them not coming back.

 

You gotta wonder what kind of bullsh!t Kovy and the rest are feeding them.

I doubt you see anything like that happen during the season. But over the summer? Who knows. Would it shock anyone if groundwork was being laid right now to get an Ovechkin or a Malkin back over there?

Men's skiing Slopestyle crushed it with a USA sweep. Silver medalist Gus Kenworthy grew up in a town next to mine in Colorado. USA!

If it weren't for the freestyle snowboarding and skiing events the US would have... 3 bronze medals. This hasn't felt like a very strong team showing so far. Or maybe the rest of the world just getting a lot better at things.

I've been recording all the games and finally caught up. Always enjoy Olympic hockey but it's been hard to stay offline to avoid spoilers.

The Czechs just scored and no Devils were involved. Erat can apparently score against Latvian-level talent.

Why would I be joking?

Because those jerseys are an embarrassment, and I can't believe any self respecting Devils fan would buy one with Parise's name on it. I would think you were joking because I would say something like that as a joke.

Speaking of jerseys, Latvia has nice threads.  The Czechs have ugly jerseys though.

 

Jagr scores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. They'd be real nice without those rubber ties. And Jags got another one.

Whatever dude.  Your opinion is your opinion.  I happen to like the US jerseys.  Sure they're not perfect, but they're still nice.  Your insults are unwarranted.

Fair enough. I just legitimately thought you were kidding.

 

The Czechs just can't get any goaltending.

Redlihs with an assist for Latvia, then a double minor.

 

Always fun to see old Devils prospects.

I think Elias and Jagr are equally talented but after that there is a big difference

 

Historically yes, i would say right now there is a big drop between them.

 

Although the fact that both of them are still producing does suggest they are incredible hockey players.

Watching the Sweden and Swiss game, saw a funny tweet or post from one of the "experts" commenting on the Olympic site. 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Honestly, if you just inserted Jacques Lemaire behind the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Switzerland&src=hash">#Switzerland</a> bench, this team could be the 1995 NJ Devils.</p>— Dan Marrazza (@DanMarrazza) <a href="https://twitter.com/DanMarrazza/statuses/434332889992687616">February 14, 2014</a></blockquote>

Having trouble with Twitter embed ^^

As I've watched, the Swiss have been really good defensively.  Roman Josi and Brunner standing out

I hope I am not the only one who thinks the Canadian teams black jersey set looks like nazi SS uniforms with that red band on the one arm.

I fully support shipping Sal, Volch, and Harrold to whoever will take them, and signing this Tollefson guy. Anyone remember how he was with Columbus or Philly?
