Sochi In 2014

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

With the gold medal game in the men’s hockey tournament coming up today, there is an issue that is in the back of the minds of all the hockey fans.  The NHL is threatening to not send professional players to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia and other Winter Olympiads in the future.  This Canada vs. USA gold medal game could be the last one ever.

Gary Bettman argues that it costs the NHL money to shut down the season in the middle of the playoff drive.  It disrupts the season.  He doesn’t like trusting the NHL’s best players to the International Olympic Committee.

Open Post- Team USA Against Team Canada For The Gold

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

This is the game many of us hoped for and now it is about to begin.

What a way to close out the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.  The majority of Canada will be watching and I believe many in the US will be watching too.

Team USA will try to take the home crowd out of the game early, while Team Canada will attempt to build on the momentum the fans are providing.

This should be fun folks, sit back and enjoy.

The Paths Of Glory Ends Today In Gold

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By VooX

This is it.  The rematch for all the glory and the gold.

The heavily favoured Canadians are facing the Americans who by all “expert” analysis should not be in contention for gold.  And yet among the 19, most are expecting America to win the gold.

While those in Canada are falling over themselves annointing the Canadians as gold medalists already, I am not so confident.  Team USA’s defence has looked better than expected, and Miller has been outstanding.  The way I see it, if the USA plays like they did one week ago, Team Canada will have their hands full.

And the Canadians will need every ounce of chemistry, goaltending, and backchecking that they can muster.

They Meet Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Brendan Shanahan at NHL.com,

I remember the buzz in Salt Lake leading up to what we North Americans thought was the perfect gold medal match. I’ll never forget seeing my Red Wings teammate Chris Chelios in the Olympic Village the night before that game. We agreed that neither of our teams would walk away losers and that it was fantastic that one of us would win gold and the other silver. We shook hands and wished each other luck. A split second later as I turned to walk away, I thought, “Screw that, man, I want the gold.” I’m sure Chris [the godfather of USA hockey] was thinking exactly the same thing.

Here we are again: a game between two countries that respect and often root for each other, but are also fierce competitors when facing each other. I can’t recall a game where so many hockey experts from so many different backgrounds have had such a wide range of opinions about who is going to win. The consensus is this: whichever team imposes its strengths on the other and dictates the style of play is the team that will likely win.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I knew he always has teams that work hard and are positionally sound, but I’m impressed by his coaching style.  He’s quick and to the point and his voice is really heard in the dressing room. It’s been great to play for him.”

-Rick Nash of Team Canada.  More on Babcock from Dan Rosen of NHL.com.
