I believe he meant that the Juniors would run every single year as it does, but that for some reason every 4th year the Juniors would be the Olympics...

Well, my statement stands despite the misinterpretation. Wink

Olympics should be 100% for amateurs, as it was meant to be.  Wanna make millions?  You just sold your chance to play for your country. 

Six teams of millionaires playing for their "countries" even though most will live in the US or Canada now, and some US and Canadian kids playing for NA and other guys left out playing for "the rest of the world".  And people wonder why there are empty seats and no viewership? 

Hey, why not make it more even, make the Canada team Manitoba/West and Ontario/east.  I'm not sure that we couldn't form a team from the guys that didn't make team Canada that wouldn't be playing for silver now...

Would the red army team make a big comeback?  Who cares.  Its the Olympics. 

Its like Olympic Basketball.  Once they let the pros in, it a race for Silver, or maybe a Cinderella story.  Hockey, same thing.  A little closer, but still half a dozen teams competing for the medals, with Can and the US the fav for gold. 


World Cup, Spengler Cup, Hlinka, blah blah blah...   the Stanley Cup is the trophy.  Anything else, second rate. 


Holy crap man.    This is all jus..... as you say blah blah blah

Its pretty clear you don't understand.

Just because the USA crapped the bed n through it away don't in any way say this means nothing to these guys.

Tis a good idea IMO.

Gives guys from other Country's and guys that cant make Canada or the USA a place to play and compete.

The idea of it is ok. But don't call it World Cup. It's not. Does Italy and Germany etc split up their teams of young stars? Or FIFA mess with teams like that? No and they never will. This tourney should of been called something else like hockey challenge cup or world hockey challenge or whatever.

Canada takes it 2-1.  I wish the Jets had a line with Toews and Marchand.

Its not fair, really.  It should be the entire WORLD vs CANADA.  Shocked Grin Wink

LOL

Canada could make 2 teams and finish 1-2

Would you rather watch us play Germany or a Euro team made up of the best from countrys that may not be able to feed a roster to compete with the best?

It was a fun tourney to watch .

And yet, even with Canada front and centre, it didn't draw flies...

I hope game 3 of the finals is entertaining...

Canada swept the series so there is no game 3. Also, ACC seemed pretty packed so the draw is definitely there.

How about that beauty of a pass to Marchand from our boy Toews for the game winner?

that was the play of the tournament! They seem to love Toews at the ACC he always got a loud, As much as Crosby, roar whenever introduced.

The game was utterly boring though. Only time I found myself FF through parts of a team Canada final.

A mostly boring game until the final five or so minutes and Team Canada looked mostly flat and slow until getting their first goal. Toews' feed to Marchand on the GWG was just beautiful.

And yet, even with Canada front and centre, it didn't draw flies...

I hope game 3 of the finals is entertaining...

Not sure what games you've been watching but attendance has been solid and even then, tickets were sold out. The World Cup of Hockey was meant to be a revenue stream and with estimates exceeding well over $100M, that's exactly what it's done.

And the final was a best of three. Canada won two, so it's over.

Yeah, it's almost as ugly as the Lombardi Trophy. But at least you can still drink beer or champagne out of it.
