If Steve Nash was such a sellout to his own country and played for us in the olympics we would of been top 5 for sure. But, what can you do, the best canadian 2 x mvp basketball player, hates his own country.

Yeah he is. Lol you guys seemd to be on the right track but for whatever reason you guys aren't able to grasp the team concept, this year you easily had equal to or better talent then us. I was very happy to see us win since I've played against Tokarski, and Jordan Eberle is a frind of mines cousin. I had some vested intrest this year.

Team USA is all NHLers too, and most of Sweden/Finland/Czech is composed of NHL players too. But by far Canada has the best talent overall talent, and I definitly think Canada will win the next set of Olympics.

A big thank you to Russia for this win, well...thanks to that Russian D-man.

Overall thoughts..
Markstrom was a tool.
Janus was the best goaltender of the tournament.
Tavares was sick, but got wayy too much attention (crosby anyone?)
Hodgson deserved much more credit, but when tsn only gives a crap about Tavares, it's hard to do.
Anyone else dislike the shootout? i mean, i like it...but there's no need of it when there's an important game on the line like that, c'mon.

As for Team Canada in the 2010...I'm confident in us, i'd like to see Savard make that team so bad.
I think that we will have our work cut out for us, though.

Janus played well but Markstrom was the best tender, yeah he was acting like a bitch but he will be better then Henrik in the NHL. Janus is one of those guys thats hot and cold, and he was hot for the two games you saw, but he let in weak goals, which I don't like to see.

Markstrom will not be better than Henrik, lol. Janus played on a shitty team, and was peppered so much, If he played with Sweden he would have put up numbers near Markstroms, imo.

You do know that Markstrom is the best goalie in the Swedish elite league at 18 right? lol Lundqvuist played in that same league, at the same age, and ended up back in the junior league. Markstrom's also bigger and he has all the tools to be tops in the league, his only down fall will be playing for Florida . Janus playes for the Erie Otters and he isn't much if you watch him on a regular basis.
