    I didn't see a thread for this topic, so I thought we might as well get one going for those hockey loversout there. I am, by no means, a fan of the game. But, considering its in my hometown (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), I thought it would be a nice touch. Below isthe schedule, along with the pools for the tournament. I cant find the TV schedule for where it would be accessible in the states (all are on TSN forCanada).

    Merry Christmas to you and yours NT.

    If that goal with 2 seconds left in the second wasnt a kick to the groin, I dont know what was.

    Sounds good.

    And you know me. I dont come in the NHL thread until playoff time. Only time that really matters for them Red Wings [​IMG]
    Oh the irony in that statement, the one year in the past ten that they dont start out well out of the gate [​IMG]

    Good to hear though. Glad you guys could get these games down there. Your predictions on team USA this year?

    Man, why even bother having this tournament? Look at the list of winners...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/w...0_Championship_medalists

    -Canada with 12 wins in the past 20 years
    -USSR/Russia with 4
    -Czechs with 2
    -USA with 1
    -Finland with 1

    Lack of parity FTMFL.

    It's like women's hockey where Canada or the U.S. win 100% of the time.

    And this tourny is in Canada every 2-3 yrs because no one else cares about hosting it. It's gonna be in Canada again in 2012.

    On the other hand, hockey in the winter olympics is 100x better because it's a complete toss-up as to who wins the Gold every 4 years.

    So in other words, I could wait another 20 years to go to the World Juniors again in Saskatoon? [​IMG]

    Agreed though. Canada has dominated this tournament in the past 20 years or so. Going for six in a row... Only USSR in the 70's had more from what Iremember. Then again, I didnt look at the link, so correct me if im wrong.

    Thread update:

    Went to the USA Switzerland game today. Holy god both goalies are STUDS, specifically the Swiss netminder. Both teams played great. USA came out to a slowstart again today, but was the superior team in the latter half of the second, and all of the third. Should be a good matchup on new years eve. But, look outfor the Swiss. Those boys skate hard, and play a physical game.

    Sweden also looks pretty good today too. Either way, this tournament is going to be alot closer than people think.

    Only that one. Prices are 60 odd bucks a ticket for the high end of bowl. Not only that, but its suuuuuuper packed in there. Only tickets left are the upperbowl, especially for Canada v USA games. But yeah, the Swiss goalie had to stand on his head all game. Not surprised he had a rough start to the game today.

    You know what I mean.[​IMG]

    For the most part, I think I'm right most countries don't seem to take this as seriously Canadians seem to think it is. I mean people here, for someunknown reason think this tournament is a serious thing.

    Canada began this tournament like 42-0 or some nonsense, I think it's really really ridiculous how big of a deal this thing is here like this 5 in a rowstreak is important on any level. [​IMG]

    42-1. I remember Pierre saying that we lost one game in the past five years.

    I dont know why either, but I do enjoy the hype as a Canadian [​IMG]

    Man, this town is buzzzzzzing about the USA Canada game tomorrow night. Tomorrow is going to have some real good games. The Swiss Slovakia game decides third,Canada USA decides first, Sweden Finland decides first, and Russia Czech is a big enough rivalry as it is. Its going to be exciting tomorrow.

    As for the games last night, my goodness we played undisciplined hockey. Even though we were up big early, no need to get as chippy as we got. We cant playlike that against the states.

    I know tonight is new years and all, but no comment on the game?

    I ran into a few USA fans at the after party tonight after the game, and man, I was honest with them. No way in hell did Canada deserve to win after the firsttwo periods. My hats go off to the US team, they played a hell of a game, and if they did win, I would have no reason to be angry at them. I honestly hope tosee the states in the final against Canada, because that would be a fitting end to such a great finish to the round robin. Two great teams tonight, where thegame should have been tied considering all things.

    Good luck the rest of the way to the states. On to the medal round [​IMG]

    EH OH CANADA GO! [​IMG]

    Happy New Years NT Hockey Fans!!!!!
