    Canada Hasn't won the tourney in 3 years. The world competition gets better every year, as evidenced by the increasing number on players drafted to the nhl outside of North America.
    It's always my fav tournament no matter what sport.

    Anyone else insane like I am, getting up (and having a few beers) at 4am just to watch it live?

    Tight game with Slovakia. Canada has always trailed... 3-3 now, end of the second. Morgan Rielly with 3 pts.

    On a related Junior hockey sidenote, The London Knights won their 22nd game in a row last night (tying the Barrie Colts' from 09/10).

    No matter what level or league you're in, that's an amazing feat.

    The Knights are a well oiled machine. They are the blueprint for any sport Hunter is a visionary ( I never thought I'd say that about him while he was playing)

    USA tonight/day! Their program has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade. Always a contender now.
    One of their top players (Seth Jones) father used to play for the Raptors, where he was exposed to hockey! (Popeye Jones)
    Sunday night looks like the best game of the tourny though, Russia!

    Gotta say, I;ve never seen the Canaduans dominate the Russians like that at any level.
    4-1 final including an empty net goal,, but the final scpre was in no way indicitive of how badly the Canadian's beat the Russians.
    The Canadians were the favorite going in, largely due to the 'Lockout Line', But The Finish and Russians were suposed to be close.
    For most of the last half of the game Team Canada Played a perfect tic taxk toe cycle to tire and frustrate the home towm CCCP squad which took the sell out crowd down to a level of a Brampton Battalion game.

    Any thong short of a Gold is a failure!

    Rielly has been Canada's best defenceman, which is nice to see.

    The leafs will find a way to ruin him too, just like they did to Schenn.

    russia produces great PLAYERS, but no good teams
    they barely eaked out a win against the freaking swiss team and were badly outplayed and out hustled by them

    after watching the USA team dismantle the Czechs i was worried about todays game

    Canada looked horrible and the USA beat them like a red headed step child that owed rent

    a little tough to swallow, that loss to the U.S. was, although i called Canada to not even medal on the 24th.

    The ice surface looks tiny. Must be the camera angle.

    Keep the passes short and have a shoot first mentality.
