Canadian teams would win every year if our players weren't playing for American teams, lol.

Well, I'm glad it's not like that. Nationalist playing should be left to the Olympics. In fact, I didn't like the Olympics because it's way too one sided, I prefer the NHL where it's much more even.

That's what international tournaments are for. The rest of the world has caught up to a large degree, and that's nothing new. Remember Nagano?...You're 26. Maybe not. The Americans won the 96 world cup. There are other examples. More recent. We're still the best, but it's not like it was 30 years ago.

Tagging, surprising to see so many Canadian teams make it this time

There's nowhere to go but up from zero.

I remember Torino, truly horrific.

Cheering for my national hockey teams, and Canadian UFC fighters, is about as passionately nationalistic as I get. I do get into it for sure. But really, I'm pretty easy, because I just like the competition. My favorite player of all time is Russian. Pavel Bure. I had friend who, and i kid you not, threw his living room furniture onto his front lawn when we lost the 96' World Cup to the U.S. He's mellowed out since then. :)

If the Nagano team had Mario Lemieux (or even Messier), I think they would've won, but that was fun, I remember watching the game's at like 2 AM at a 24 hour pool hall with buddies just getting loaded on beers before.

I was born in the United States, and have dual citizenship, so I've never really been nationalistic, and during the Olympics I usally just root for the underdog.

I have tendancy to root for the underdog too. Teams on the periphery, that are good, but not great, that make moves, are always fun to cheer for.

Those guys might have made the difference, especially a still prime Mario. Messier was, with all respect, kinda done though.

Woo, go Canadian teams!
