RedStorm, the US and Canada are in the same class, but they're not on the same plane.  There's no doubt we can beat Canada, and compete with Canada, but we still don't have the depth and overall talent Canada has.

This has somehow been missed here, but Patty is ill again and will miss his second straight game tomorrow. I hope its nothing serious: Olympic Hockey News ‏@OlympicHckyNews
Per a report, Patrik Elias will miss a 2nd consecutive game due to illness. Out vs Slovakia tomorrow.

Kopitar got sick too I think which is why he missed half the game vs the US.

Both of you need to go back reread the sequence of posts.

 

On Par and Equal do not mean the same thing.

 

Well you were proven wrong on that one.  You're not really the clever wordsmith you'd like to think you are, and if you keep this schtick up, you're going to continue to bog down threads and generally get on people's nerves.  It's kind of too bad, because behind all of this nonsense I do think there's a pretty good poster in there somewhere.   

 

Anyway, I got what you were going for (competitive enough not to lose to them every time, but not good enough to beat them half of the time...basically, if the US and Canada could play each other 10 times, the US wins 3 or 4 games), but you just have to stop making your points in what seems to be the most aggravating way possible, with the semantic hair-splitting. 

 

Back on topic:  dr33 made a good post about some women's hockey teams making strides, which is good news.  Hopefully one of two of them can at least give the US and Canada some scares in 2018.

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.

The biggest bookmaker in Norway gives you 3 cents on the dollar if you put your money on Russia. :P

 

That said; While I leave us 0% chance today, we rarely get bitch-slapped! :D

Regarding the women's tournament- Wouldn't the fact that there isn't really a high level women's hockey league play a big part in this? I mean the only competitive men's teams are made up of mostly nhl players, with a few khl or sel- guys who literally make their living off the sport.

The most competitive women on the other hand are for the most part using the sport to get a free college degree. There's no real way to make a career out of it. So if youre a woman in Switzerland or Germany why invest so much into playing hockey if you know there's no career to be had down the line?

I would have looked a lot smarter had I replied when I saw this morning, but a few things:

 

1) Russia has shown that they aren't bitch slapping anyone in this tournament

2) Norway seems to have a pretty good defensive system, 

 

Big Ice has been a nice equalizer for less talent.

I have no schtick. I don't argue for both sides. Way to completely ignore when I actually admitted my mistake in the other thread.

I already am a great poster. Problem is you people like to interpret my posts in your own way. I don't leave my posts open to interpretation. I post what I mean and mean what I post. Period.
