You know, the shots on goal were 38-17 for canada, so we did have lots of chances, but you're right lady luck wasnt on our side yesterday.

Guess I need to stay detached when these games are on, I get so emotionally involved and expect canada to win every game. Its time to realize that there are other up and coming countries that have good hockey players.....

not really so much anymore.

Just as CSKA and Zenit have won European football trophies recently, there's a lot of money in Russian sports........... Mainly propped up by Oligarch like Abramovich admittedly.

for example, during the NHL strike, Datsyuk played in Russia and the Red Wings had to literally beg him to come back.

I was speaking in general terms, if it hadnt been russia there are many other european countries that might have and possibly could have won - sweden, finland, etc.

Roman Abramovich, Alexandre Gaydamak & Alisher Usmanov amongst others.

Usmanov is the Russian who has been trying to buy Arsenal FC for the last year. Gaydamak owns Portsmouth FC, and Abramovich owns Chelsea FC.

You know johnobucko, a true gentleman would empathize with canada's failed attempt to achieve a gold medal in the three tournaments.....

But if you must go ahead and be all smug and have your moment of glory laughing at us - but just remember we'll get them next year at the 2010 olympics.....
