    Why? I'm cheering for no one. I cheer for Canada.

    I think Finland will win.

    Finland because of Saku Koivu. Although it wouldn't hurt me if Russia (Kovalev and Markov) or the Czech (Bulis) won either. I don't care much for the Swedes, as they have no Canadiens.

    No one really... I'm part Finnish, so I guess I'd like them to win over whos left, but Russia has been my favorite team to watch so far.

    I am not Canadian but whatever. I am cheering for Russia b/c it will be sweet for Ovechkin to win the gold since there are no playoffs in his future.

    I'm returning to my priority, the Philadelphia Flyers. I'm cheering for Gagne's knee to not be seriously hurt and I'm cheering for Forsberg's groin to stay healthy.

    Russia for me. First, it makes us feel slightly better if it turns out that we were beaten by the Gold medal team. Second, Russia is so talented, you can't but admire it. Finland would be my second choice because they've played so hard. The least deserving is Sweden.

    Ehhhh, probably Russia. Ovechkin is my favourite player left, and Kozlov is supposedly a Devil.

    Finland. They've never won and they're a top hockey country, so it would be nice to see them win one. Even Great Britian has won hockey gold. Go Suomi.

    I've been cheering for Russia since the start. Mainly because I just love how these young Russians play and can't get enough of it, but also because I really didn't care for most of the canadian roster. I would still have liked to see the Canadians get the silver, but they really didn't deserve anything.

    Too bad the Russians and the Finns can't finish 1-2, they've been amazing!

    Finland. I'd be happy to see them take home the gold, I like their game, and, well... I like their captain. I'm glad the Habs kept him, regardless of price, and I want to see him lead team to a championship. I know he can, he just doesn't have the backup in Montreal to do it.

    Anybody but the Russians. I'm bitter, angry and jealous and I want them to lose lose LOSE LOSE LOSSE LOS> LSPOEJFKOSEJLF ARHGHGH

    If Sweden would be eliminated, I would go with Russia. They are so talented it hurts and they have accomplished what no other Russian team has accomplished yet: to form a team that works together. They excel in goal, defense and most of all, offense.

    They deserve the gold. I wouldn't mind Sweden stealing it from them, but if we don't, they truly deserve it. The Russian people have gone through alot of **** and they could need some cheering.

    I am American, but the same concept applies to us - cheering for somebody else. :shakehead

    I like the Finns and the Russians (because they weren't afraid to bring their brilliant kids to the Olympics, unlike two other teams we know). I think Finland will win it all.

    Russia gets my support from here on in, they are a great team to watch. It would be a great career boost for young guys like Ovechkin and Malkin to start off with a Gold medal in their first Olympics.
