Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

I've been watching the whole Tournament. I have to work tonight though so I'll miss the first hour of the game!!!!

Here's hoping our Goal tending gets its ass in gear and we can beat the US.

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

yeah I know, I'm a little worried about our goaltending too =[ But Visentin looked alright against the Swiss even though he let in a soft goal early in the game. At this point I think Visentin looks better than Roy.

It could be a feisty game given that its a rematch of last year's gold medal game so there might be quite a few power plays so special teams will be a big part of it too...

On an interesting side note - USA Captain John Ramage and USA alternate Captain Ryan Bourque are both sons of Canadian hockey players Rob Ramage and Ray Bourque...some good Canadian hockey genes passed on there ;o)

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Yessssssss. Another Canada win!! Good game - I think the main reason the game went as it did was the amount of time the puck spent in the US zone . . . just sayin' . . .

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Yes, bring on the Russians for the Gold medal!!! No disrespect to U.S. fans but Canada was the better team and we dominated the play for much of the game.
With the US being our neighbours I will root for them in games that don't involve Canada so I wish the U.S. good luck in the game against Sweden.

btw, where were all the U.S. fans? With all the Canadian sweaters in the crowd it looked like that game was being played in Canada...I know Buffalo is close to the Ontario border but we looked like the home team there...

Bring on Russia for gold - GO CANADA !!!

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

You should definitely check it out - they are playinig great hockey! Lotsa 1st round NHL picks playing. I watched the Canada US game and then afterwards I switched over to the Canaucks / Ducks game and the NHL game seemed slower in comparison.

yeah but didn't the Devils give up their 1st round pick as part of the Kovalchuk trade? so the earliest the Devils would pick would be in the 2nd round...39th or something like that? sorry - don't mean to rub salt in any open wounds =[

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

They swapped 2nd rounders this year, and sent "a" first round pick, the Devils choice of the next three drafts. And, the NHL penalized the Devils another first (and a 3rd) for signing him, also the Devils choice in the next four drafts. It's one and done here unless the Devs trade Parise for picks.

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Wow, that was a costly deal...Kovalchuk better start producing for all he's costing the Devils...

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Same as Ovi - put a defenseman in his face and a forward on his ass and his game suffers. Crosby keeps changing his game, that's why he's still producing like his is. It seems like the rest of the NHL has caught on to the Russian snipers habits and are taking them away.

Canada vs Russia is tonight, right?

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Yup, Canada vs Russia tonight - BIG GAME - its in the 1st period right now......but I'm still stuck at work...argggghhhh...but my pvr is set to record it so no radio on the way home...I've watched every Canada game so I wont be missing this one ;o)

lotsa hockey history between Canada & Russia... although I think that's changing with the US hockey program getting so much better and producing so many great players ...

US got bronze against Sweden so at least US didn't go home empty handed...

Re: Canada vs US in World Jr Hockey today

Tough loss for Canada, but it could have been 6-3 there at the end. I missed the first two periods, did Canada collapse in the 3rd or did Russia phone in the first 2 periods?
