Really nice to see US pulling out the win, even if it was in the shootout. There's never a bad way to beat Canada, in my book.

They deserved to win the game anyway so the shootout is whatever to me. Canada had their chance to win in the shootout as well. fvck em!

Comparing a group of NHL has-beens losing to a scrub Czech team to a group of college kids beating a grown-men well oiled machine team of hockey superstars (who had just beaten the NHL All-Stars in a competition the year prior) is fvcking enormous. That difference is ridiculous even for SD.

Who did that exactly? The comparison was about the settings and values of the tournament itself. And not the outcome itself but the value of the outcome

@DevilMinder Just want to say how much I still love this forum lol.... I got a bunch of warnings over on hf boards cause I posted the cartman picture and a mod deleted it so I had posted "hahaha I guess one of the Canadian mods can't take a joke, can't even post a picture of Cartman licking tears, be more salty"... Apparently the mod was a wuss San Jose Sharks fan lol

fvck that guy and fvck Canada. I'm still so excited for the women. What a game!

Yeah, I meant that some people see it as a diminished win or somesuch because it was in a shootout. I obviously prefer continous OT but the tournament is the way it is.

We beat Canada in hockey and curling in the same day, so awesome! Suck it Canada!

Can't wait to see the US in the Men's hockey semis. Oh wait... 

;) 

 

In all seriousness, it was a great finish by both teams. Congrats to the US for pulling it through. That Lamoureux SO goal was filthy lol.

I never thought the US men were gonna be any good when you had guys like Bobby Butler and Brian O'Neill who could barely make the lineup for some of the garbage teams we have had here lol That's without even mentioning some of the other bums they selected, the men's side has been a mess of subpar hockey all around in this tournament to me.

This.  Even the Olympic Dopers from Russia team has been underwhelming, and they are supposed to be the class of the field.  In reality, you get better hockey played in the World Championships than we are seeing in these Olympics, which is sad.  How else do you explain Germany making it to the medal round.  I like the Olympics, and usually am really into the men's hockey tournament, but this year it's been very boring all around. 

The US team was poorly constructed.  When the NHL decided not to go, they should have used the best players playing in college and Canadian Juniors, while sprinkling in a few vets here and there, rather than the other way around.

The NHL better go in 2022, because USA is going to be absolutely stacked. Team will probably include Eichel, Matthews, Jack Hughes, Gaudreau, Boeser, Gostisbehere, Werenski, Jones, Murray, and tons of others. USA should be a legit superpower, it just sucks we always end up sending 2nd rate teams compared to what we're capable of.

The damage is done. Going 8 years in between appearances means you lose a lot. A lot of guys who would've made their last meaningful senior competition, guys who went through their entire prime without being able to compete. It's so much more than the logistics the NHL tricked everyone into thinking were legitimate reasons to keep the players out. It's all about controlling the revenue and monopolizing the sport. I'd like to see the World Championships move to July and become biennial.

Still got further in the tourney than the US buddy ;) Let's hope we get the NHL players back in 4 years so that it can actually be the best in the world playing each other. No doubt in my mind Canada and USA would be the final in 2022. Too much talent not to.
