    I totally passed up my Boston creme doughnut this morning because of that discussion the other day. Thank a lot, TCI.

            Hawks season is over because they are only 7-5 in 1GG Regulation games still?

          • lizmcneill

            60 minute efforts and not being able to turn it on in the playoffs.

          How many times have I been flagged? Please say it’s double-digits and from Nucks Misconduct…

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            I do not know who flags, just when somebody posts on my site, I can see these things. Are you sure you want to know how many times?

          • 10thMountainFire

            Haters gonna hate.

  • SuperHawk27

    Canada and Finland seems like a tough group B. Group C looks like a cake walk for Sweden! USA should beat Russia right?

    • CozBullsFan

      Yes, they should. Strange things happen in the Olympics though.

      Amazing that they didn’t fire him before sacking Viggy.

      • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

        It IS the Canucks, it is not their fault to begin with, so why be surprised!

    • 10thMountainFire

      Wow. That was a good belly laugh for a Monday.

    • jordyhawk

      Burrows with the hair pulling again on Saturday night. This time it was Kessel. Canucks opponents advised to get team crew cuts.

    • red palace

      A late April Olympics would work nicely for them too.

  • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

    As much as I enjoy watch NHL’ers in the Olympics, I would actually prefer them NOT to go in the end, at least during the season (so not go). I am okay with an offseason bi or quad annual event like a World Cup or Canada’s Cup as a substitute. IMO the Grail is still the most important trophy, and the Olympics offer more fatigue and additional potential of injury in its pursuit.

    • Z-man19

      I would think the ratings and excitement generated by these Oly’s will determine what happens for S. Korea. The time difference and travel will be even worse for those games. It would be interesting if they could get as much of an interest bump doing a bi/4 year World’s Cup in September before training camps start.

    • jordyhawk

      Totally agree. Canada Cups were great events. One issue is length of season. Finals (not counting last years extended season) now go about 2 weeks longer, but that said, that’s not a showstopper. Larmer in 1991 played maybe the best hockey of his career. Great stuff.

  • bizarrohairhelmet

    Geez, that Sportsnet host looks exactly like Harrison Mooney. Best not to tell the match.com ladies you’re a hockey blogger. oh, wait…

    Is there a place that has the schedule for all Olympic hockey games (men + women)? So far I’ve been checking NBC’s crappy website every day

        Click on the ICE HOCKEY link, and you will have the entire Mens and Womens schedule.

      • CitizenKaner

        thanks

  • laaarmer

    HEY! Ovechkin is in group A!

  • Joe Banks

    Szabadoo! Canada survives a nail biter versus Finland! 3-0

  • justforkicks

    Ugh kaner is on a line with brown and kesler. Why is brown even there?!?!

    • lizmcneill

      Who is their 13th and 14th forwards? Probably an upgrade on Brown.

      • justforkicks

        Him and Kessel are the leading scoters on the team and Kane is on the 3rd line?!?! What the shit

        • VerStig

          I guess they didn’t take him out of his comfort zone, because of course he’s been dragging guys around all year

    • bizarrohairhelmet

      that’s actually a kick-ass line. Brown is the 1C on the best possession team in the league. Kessel is fast with handling skills and Kane is Kane.

      • justforkicks

        Not Kessel, kesler

        • bizarrohairhelmet

          oh. yeah, that’s not as good. Kind of a waste of Kane. Kaner’s probably wondering what he has to do to get a decent set of linemates these days.

          • 10thMountainFire

            Put a Hawks sweater back on?

          • justforkicks

            Good linemates not good teammates

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            He is also probably going to be wondering why it smells like vinegar on his line.

          • bizarrohairhelmet

            Hell, he’s probably going to end up wondering if this is the Summer Olympics with his linemates.

          • 10thMountainFire

            Kane’s summer Olympics with his linemates usually involves a day with the Cup and lots of drinking.

          • justforkicks

            And crying. Can’t forget the crying

          • lizmcneill

            Meanwhile, Saad and Bobby Ryan are on a beach somewhere. Poor Kaner.

          • 10thMountainFire

            Why are Saad and Ryan hanging out? That’s weird, Saad. Hawks only.

          • justforkicks

            It’s the fuck you tj oshie and your shootout move vacation

          • 10thMountainFire

            TJ Oshie is much bester than Saad. Because shootouts.

          • justforkicks

            Dude I’m wondering what he has to do to get a decent set of linemates. Waste if kaner indeed

          • red palace

            So, he’ll feel right at home and get lots of points.

          • justforkicks

            He’s slowed down considerably last 15+ games. My hope was he’d go to the olympics, okay with really great players, and get back into the groove of things. Hopefully it still happens but his current line isn’t what I had in mind

          • lizmcneill

            If it makes you feel any better Toews is saddled with Nash at the minute.

          • justforkicks

            hah not really but i appreciate the effort =D

        • red palace

          Not Kessler, Kramer.

      • lizmcneill

        Brown’s a winger, Kopitar is their 1C. Brown is also on pace for 22 points this year.

        • 10thMountainFire

          That is such a lovely post.

          • VerStig

            But I would prefer him to get 22 points in the Olympics, that would be nice

      • Joe Banks

        Is it Kessel, or Kesler? I’m confused.

    • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

      Why is Brown there?? So Kane can make him look good for once!

      • lizmcneill

        More points in the Oympics than the entire regular season, all from Kaner!

    • 10thMountainFire

      St. Louis Game Time says Dustin Brown’s leadership is not like Backes. Also, Dustin Brown’s leadership didn’t win the Stanley Cup. Also, David Backes is trash.

      • justforkicks

        Idk what they are even talking about. Eh on team USA I am fine with backes. I’ll learn to be ok with brown too. I am bitter that Callahan doesn’t have a letter but whatever. I hope everyone playing in the Olympics not on team USA, including the hawks not on team USA whiffs on every shot, forgets how to skate, falls on their asses, and only score own goals. I hope they cry themselves to sleep every night with how shitty they are playing.

        • 10thMountainFire

          You dare disagree with the Game Time? Backes is a Leader of Leaders. Dustin Brown couldn’t lead. Leadership Corsi.

          • justforkicks

            Hah I’m neutral. Olympics warp me though, I’m actually sad backes didn’t go on his fuck you Canada tour like he did in 2010

        • VerStig

          Well, Tomas Kopecky is suiting up from Team Slovakia, is he not?

          • justforkicks

            Fuck, I never have gifs handy to post

          • VerStig

            That ahnfire-hairhelmet collaboration was pure gold.

          • justforkicks

            seriously! i can see it my head as i type this. i need to start saving shit so i can post them

  • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

    BTW, the Hawks are still on a pace for ONLY 115 points. Might not be enough to get into the playoffs!

    • 10thMountainFire

      But… PRESIDENT’S TROPHY!
