    I like the "the trap is unbeatable" excuse. Especially since it was obvious Canada were the ones employing a traplike strategy much more than the russians ever did.

    Canada was just playing possum, but somebody circled the wrong date on the calendar in the lockerroom so they didn't think the elimination round started until today.

    We didn't have Gordie Howe and Jean Beliveau in the locker room!


    There presence would have made the difference.

    a few good ones were..

    Janet Gretzky bet on the russians!

    The big ice = more trapping.. didn't hear much of this in Salt Lake..

    It was Bertuzzi's fault... no wait.. it's McCabe! no wait.. it's all Crosby's and Spezza's fault.. nope.. it's Gretzky again.

    Funniest one I've heard so far is people blaming it on Steve Moore's lawsuit.

    "The lockout slowed the players down"

    It lead directly to Bertuzzi's last penalty. The one AO scored on. Even Gretzky mentioned that it was a pick and the first one called all week at that. (Of course Gretzky failed to mention that Bert bowled the guy over)

    i think it's pretty obvious that not having the lucky loony buried at center ice in '06 will ultimately be the demise of canadian hockey. :sarcasm:

    Yeah, because we all know that every single player did the same thing during the lockout.
