    Default What when wrong?

    Can we say that Canada is just better? Makes one wonder how the NHL for the American teams would be if it were only American born players on their teams?

    You can. And I can say the sky is brown. Both statements share this quality: they are wrong.

    Americans are leading your beloved Leafs.

    the only epic collapse game in recent history was Canada/Russia at the WJC a few years ago.

    Kessel and JVR lead the Leafs in points.

    Good Ol' American guys.

    That's gotta' hurt.

    The fact Kessel and JVR are leading Toronto in scoring today is "ancient history"?

    You may want to rethink your answer. Your first clue is Toronto/Boston and the second is a certain women's gold medal game. Come to think of it, you're right. There are a lot of American players involved in these "epic collapses"

    Nothing went wrong. The better team won in both cases. The women put on a clinic in heart and determination while the men put on a clinic in a defensive team effort second to none..................ever

    The US women losing a game 3-2, in which they were leading 2-0, is an epic collapse on the scale of Canada's meltdown to Russia at the WJC?

    It's not even close!

    Canada blew a 5-1 lead in the third period...that's not only the biggest choke in hockey history, it's one of the biggest chokes in all of sports, period!

    Congrats ...I guess

    You're angry but I understand. You believed you were coming home with 2 Olympic gold medals in hockey. Instead you came home with 1 silver and a whole lotta shame.......lol

    The last five WJCs are way more indicative of where each country stands as far as the future of hockey is concerned.

    The USA is standing on the mountain top....Canada, not so much
