Eghad......Bill Peters is coaching this rag tag bunch of Canadians. I can only hope this is NOT what to expect in Flamedom next year.

Feel Good story for the Swiss. Let's see if they can pull this off. Sweden is a wrecking machine.

Swiss nearly win, but the Swedes take the gold medal game 3-2 in a shootout. Basically a Nashville vs. Nashville final: Forsberg, Arvidsson, Ekholm vs. Josi, Fiala

Good showing from the Avs players there: Rantanen, Andrighetto, Jost, and newly-signed Czech goalie Pavel Francouz.

Also, FUCK USA HOCKEY for shitting the bed and handing the C over to Patrick goddamn Kane. I actively rooted against my own country's team because of that.

That's very true, but you do not slap that patch on a national team in ANY capacity on a man who has a history of violence against women, has been accused of rape, beat up a cab driver over roughly $0.10, and has carried himself as a mega-douchebag his entire career.

Then again, USA Hockey just named a guy who used a racial slur on a very young Trevor Daley that disturbed him so much he very nearly quit hockey, so this seems well in line with their cluelessness.
