    That was very entertaining.

    The sea of red and maple leafs with the chants of Go Canada Go was awesome. :clap

    No matter where this tournament is held in the world, it seems like Canada is playing on home soil.

    We have another future NHL superstar in Mcdavid.

    McDavid does the occasional bone head play, then I remind myself he's only 16.

    He seemed to pick up quite a few angles for a lad that young. I was impressed.

    USA got straight up out-worked by Russia this morning.

    Goaltending wasn't quite there either... they rode Gillies pretty hard this week.

    Overall, looked a lot like the teams Lucia coaches here at the U of MN... skilled and soft. :bluduh

    Didn't see the game, but watched the highlights. Bad move by the Russian to taunt. At the emotional level that these kids play at I'm surprised it wasn't worse.

    16 straight years in the semi's for Canada. Hopefully 2 more good games left in them.

    5-1 loss to the Fins? What a brutal l game. Textbook win for the Fins I guess, but not very entertaining.

    Russia tomorrow for Bronze. Should be more fun than this shit I just watched.

    Tournament in Toronto for next year is already over 90% sold out and ticket have only been on sale for 3 days.:freaky

    Better game, but the same result. At least they showed up, but needed to shoot the puck.

    First time since Canada put this program together in 1979 that they went two years in a row without a medal. :baldy

    Don Cherry is pissed with Hockey Canada.... used to be a time where we could slap a team together and win this. All countries are better now. Hockey Canada still picks players from various leagues across the country and we have to have a minimum of French Canadian players. The top 2 leading scorers in Ontario didn't even get an invite to camp. And with the lack of scoring by this team it highlights this.

    Toronto will be rocking during this tournament next year...
