I think you might have a psychological issue to explore.

 

Obviously its not the level of the men but it was very entertaining and fun to watch. I had anxiety the whole 3rd period.

 

Yeah ok my bad. All sports, regardless of skill level and quality, is obviously equally entertaining. Anyone suggesting otherwise clearly has mental issues.

this is a hockey forum and this thread is specific to he Olympics so I 'm not sure why it would "amaze" you that we talked about that game... IMO it was more entertaining than any of the men's games so far save for the Russia USA game perhaps.

Nobody said every sport is entertaining that's a straw man but it shouldn't amaze you that we discussed this game.

Thank god we picked the great New York Ranger Ryan Callahan instead of Bobby Ryan....

 

On a serious note, I'm really glad Parise didnt re-sign with us at the price he was demanding. Hes overrated and cant score from more than 5 feet out.

calahan has been alright. Probably one of the better players on ice. Must have like 4-5 blocked shots a lot of hustle.

 

We lost imo because we relied on a few guys way to much. And of course parise shoots into the goalies chest every chance he gets.

No other line could get going aside from the Kessel one. Glad they left off Ryan for Callahan and Brown. Don't even get me started on Orpik

Not enough offense and it came back to bite them. USA had trouble scoring even strength against good teams and it definitely showed. Just not enough firepower. Also, no coaching adjustments made at all in that game. Terrible. Quick was fantastic though. Absolutely fantastic.

Can't win against a superior team when your best players disappear.

Thank God we didn't invest in zach. Suter is a beast though.
