I'm sad to say this, but I am torn on this one. I am American, go USA and all that, but my favorite all time hockey player is on Canada. So I don't know who to root for. Mario Lemieux or for the USA (my country, but a team of people I don't care for).

I really hope we (USA) win this one. But I also hope the US team does not do what the womens team did, use the Canadian flag as a door-mat.If this was true, it was very poor taste and a slam to the Canadians for the support they gave us after 9/11. Can anyone confirm this actually happened. You think it would have been all over the Canadaian networks, such as CBMT. Or is someome on this board just trying to stir the sh@t. Anyway go USA.

The flag incident was all over the Canadian news but only for a shot time. The powers that be did not want to be made out as Sore Winners!! The American coach I understand has stated that they made did not do it. Our girls say that they did in fact see the flag on the floor.. Who are you going to believe.. OH BTW I do not try and stir the shit as a general rule. As it is the Canadians are due for a Gold....afterall we invented the damned game and have not won a gold medal in 50 years!!! I just hope that all our high paid multimillionares can keep their collective egos in check long enough to win.......wait?? Your team will have the same problem.

So are the russians going to pull out of the olympics now since they have nothing to look forward to? I am just wanting to see a good game. Being a Canadian living in the US, a good hockey game would be fine regardless of who wins. Not like the US basketball dream team in the olypics. A good game is not beating every team by 40+ points because your team is all proffesional athletes. [beer]

Lets see......... 1 point awarded for a goal from the slot. 2 points awarded for a goal outside the slot. 3 points awarded for a goal past the blue line. We probably still wouldn't see a 40 goal game.......DAMN!!! It would be interesting though!!! DK [:D] [b]GO TEAM USA!!![/B] [BEER]

Being from Detroit, it's hard to choose sides on this. USA: Chelios, Hull Canada: Yzerman, Shanahan Have to go with Cananda...Yzerman is a long-timer, and a class act all-around. Shanahan too.
