right yeah I guess I didn't make it clear that I agree with this... I'm fine with the Olympics and enjoy them. Zman brought up how the tournament format is not an accurate test of the best countries, and I just responded that that's not what the Olympics try to measure.
Really in all honestly the European soccer leagues have the fairest format for determining "the best" - even schedule and best record wins, no tournament, no playoffs. But I'll take the entertainment and excitement of the Stanley cup playoffs anyday over such a format.
I was piggybacking on to what you were saying...I agreed with it and expanded on it. Your post was completely clear.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
