    Hopefully the home ice advantage motivates Canada to play better.

    4 - 2 for the Canucks.

    Exhibition means nothing.

    Ya Canada lost there "exhibition" game to the U.S. but that means absolutely nothing. Canada didn 't even start there #1 line of Lemieux,Richards, and St. Louis. Broduer only played half the game and had a shutout when they pulled him. Canada will be just fine when the tournament starts and they will be world cup of hockey champions when all is said and done. They are all just trying to create chemistry right now and get the rust out. They will be fine.

    does anyone remember the start of team canada at the 2002 olympics? So.. lets take a big breath and smell the fresh air. :)

    Theo / Luongo to split next game. I hope Theo can proove he can maybe have a game if he plays well, Luongo hasnt proved yet he could produce under pressure in a huge professional tournement. (no NHL playoffs experience)

    We could lose all 3 exhibition games for all I care !! The purpose of these games are to get accustomed to each other and try different things out. If we lose next Tuesday's game in Mtl, then be concerned, until then don't get to excited if we win or lose, the games mean just about nothing !!!!!!!

    They should sit the players that were terrible last night. Well, the ones that were the most terrible I guess.

    Gagne - Sakic - Iginla
    Richards - Lemieux - St. Louis
    Smyth - Lecavalier - Doan
    Heatley - Thornton - Marleau
    --------------
    Maltby - Draper - Morrow (all brutal last night)

    Niedermayer - Regehr
    Redden - Foote
    Hannan - Bouwmeester
    -------------
    Brewer - Jovanovski (equally as brutal)


    Theodore
    Brodeur
    ------
    Luongo (couple softies)


    4-1 Canada is my prediction.

    Canada: Heatley (2), Iginla & Sakic
    USA: Tkachuk
     
  10. I predict a 3-2 Canadian win.

    Canada had better win, because could you imagine the reaction of some (not all) Canadians if Canada lost to the U.S.A. two times in a row? Can anyone say "panic button"?

    I don't believe so, it's not on TSN.ca in their headlines or audio, nor NHL.com or sportsnet.ca. In fact Sportsnet still has him listed in their poll as to who's going to be the best Canadian player.

    Even if he broke his nail, it would have been reported by now.
     
  12. I hope so, because it would be horrible for Joe to break his leg.

    Yes, there would be some panic. Especially since Canada has done so poorly at the Summer Olympics. Some feel that Canada is cursed.

    Hopefully that Thornton rumor is not true.
     
  14. I would think it isn't true because the poster said he heard it from TSN, yet TSN has nothing on their website about it.

    4-2 loss of Loungo is in net.

    2-2 draw if Theodore is in net.

    4-2 win if Brodeur is in net.

    Just a hunch.

    I think it's going to Brodeur and Theodore. I thought I read that Brodeur was splitting the first two games and then would play all of the third.

    Can't wait, I'm leaving for Ottawa first thing tomorrow morning. :handclap:
    Hopefully they win the next two.

    This quote is perfect. I couldn't have put it better myself. Team USA have all had experience playing with each other. Canada's boys, while very talented, have no real experience together with the exception of the Sakic line. Canada will be fine, and as long as we don't lose exhibition games, we'll be fine.


    We are in Ottawa tommorow night though. Team USA should wear their Blue and White jerseys because those colours seem to do well at the Corel Centre.

    J/k. Anyways, Canada's home crowd will give them a......3-1 win. Yep.

    Had to delete a few things already. Please keep the pissing matches to the minimum, the game's not even 'til tomorrow.
     
  22. If you want to know about Thornton, he's okay! Go to the Bruins board to check.

    Winning back to back gold is not an accomplishment nor any pressure?? Sweden would have probably won if not for Roberto's contributions especially when Sean Burke got injured.
