Why does everyone assume it's his back? It's been almost two years.

Because you can have degenerative back injuries where they never heal back to 100% and get injured again more easily.

I think Kovy significantly harmed his body going for that Cup.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

This is not a true statement about Canada

 

We could meet Canada in the semis. USA and Canada win the quarter finals then they face each other with winner advancing to gold round.

 

I should have rephrased that as "if Canada beats Finland in regulation, we wouldn't have to face Canada until the Gold Medal game".  But since Canada won in OT, that changed things.

Back injuries can sometimes be a bitch and never go away.  I don't expect Zetterberg to ever be the same player again because of his back injury.

it was his leg during the 2nd period yesterday He went down an another player fell on his leg. He stood up and then fell on the ice and limped off to dressing room and then he returned for th 3rd period.


Canada women are ahead 3-0 12 mins. into 1st period.

Hell I'd still take him back for his hands alone. He'd be like a much better Ryder.

On a different contract though, obviously.

Women's hockey is a joke. No disrespect, but really- can the rest of the world get with it? Us and Canada for the gold again, shocking. These games suck, as usual.


16 years of women's olypmpic hockey, you'd think one of these other countries could field a team that could at least challenge the US or Canada. It's terrible hockey.


Seriously why bother with a tournament at all at this point? Just have the US and Canada play a best of 7 for the gold and call it a day.

Cause people wants to believe it cause it would make them feel better to believe that he's done.

It's a proven fact that certain back injuries never 100% heal.  That's why we pointed out the possibility of his lingering back injury.

There is reason to believe he may be close to done. 2013 wasn't a great year for him, and he isn't lighting it up in the KHL either. There is definitely reason to believe that he may have some sort of issue. I'm not happy he's gone, I'm just happy we aren't giving him 11 million bucks right now.

That has very little to do with the fact that the women's olympic hockey tournament is a farce year after year.

I don't agree with this because Finland and the Swiss have actually been legit opponents for US and Canada at least this year.  It's still a growing sport.

No.  Like DD56 pointed out, there's signs that point to him having physical issues that are affecting his play...not to the point of being finished, but definitely enough that he's probably not Kovy anymore.  As has been pointed out, for a guy who was considered to have top (but flawed) world talent, his KHL numbers really aren't very impressive at all...at the very least, he is not the offensive force he once was.     

 

He was smart to do what he did...he found a league where he could still make a boatload of money, play in 30 less regular season games a year, not have to deal with the grind of an NHL season (which was going to be even harder on him this season, with the compressed schedule) and go somewhere that's truly home to him.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

There was a time when men's hockey was the same.  I think in 10 years or less, we'll at least see a legit 4 team race in women's hockey.
