Only need to win by one.

Sweden has a good team, good offense. But Canada has the best defense and can score enough to win.

The Broncos had a good offense too coming into the Superbowl.

Time to rep my too small to even know the actual percentage Swedish blood and root for them to beat those evil Canucks.

With a Team coached by Babcock and Claude Julien, they'll neet all the rooting they can get.

After the 5-0 loss to the Finns, the US should have to play Latvia to see if they qualify for the 2018 games. Maybe the American team should be replaced for a German team or perhaps even Belarus.

Try rooting for Team Japan.

They don't even have a pro league anymore.

Go Prince Rabbits!

Dominant performance by Team Canada.

They haven't had a team since the Sodom Backcheckers missed the last bus out of town.

It was great to see the bruins back on the ice, but the end of the game sucked donkey balls! Did Erickson defect? Lol.

Any thoughts on the St Louis Blues-Buffalo Sabres trade? I think the Blues did OK on this deal.

Chris Stewart hasn't ever really gotten back to his form that one year in Colorado, so it seems reasonable, particularly since this is supposed to be a weak draft year.

Miller is a huge pick-up IMO. I don't think it will be long before Halak is second fiddle. Miller won't know what to do with a real defense in front of him. He might fall into a nap and give up some easy ones. Being how he is used to constant activity.

Did I miss the memo that today was North American Goalie Swap Day?


Wild picked up some depth in crazy Bryzgalov after Harding and Backstrom were both shut down for the year. Sounds like they picked up Matt Moulson as well.

Luongo back to Florida fairly amusing. No surprise they then flipped Thomas for Ellis.

In non-goalie news, captain swap of Martin St. Louis / Ryan Callahan deal was weird.

Werd is....Saint lou EEEE was pissy he did not get selected to Team Canada and demanded it....

Callahan was gone at the end of the season anyway.....but it is still a weird trade....no plus or minus I can see.
