The concept that Canada can and should win gold each and every year may be just a wee bit optimistic.
You didn't quote the rest of the video in which he said there is no one player, no one staff, but all that have failed. He just mentioned first the four players that likely wouldn't be here if the NHL wasn't in lockout. No one is gonna walk up to either of these players and say they suck.
But he's right. They sucked that game, it's a shame that they lose one game and other teams lose two games and are considered better and move on.
As Canadians, we don't think we should win every yr but we should be competitively close, as weve been since the tourney started. There are yrs we could send three teams and win every medal, but that wouldn't be fun for anyone else.
I still think Canada has the best team this time as well.
