    I hope I'm not the only one looking forward to a vintage grapes rant about the Russians Saturday night...
     
  2. I'm hard already and it's only Thursday morning.

    Hopefully the first and last time it happens because of an old white senile man in a pimp costume... :help:

    He will list all the eligible Canadians who are playing in the NHL.
    He will remind how "we still are the best"
    He will mention the Olympics

    He will say that Russia didn't win it but that Canada lost it. He will also talk a lot about the guys that are in the NHL.

    Probably will complain (rightly?) about the player selections more than anything. More Ontario boys! :laugh:

    I really like him he shows pride and patriotism which is always a good thing. If you think about it Canada didn't win silver they lost gold so why not talk about it?

    The bolded part is not totally relevant to this particular championship as an excuse and full credit to the Russians but in my mind it is something worth bringing up if people are discussing the overall strength of junior aged players for countries. The year of the lockout when Canada had all of their junior eligible players they totally destroyed the field from start to finish if I recall.

    I'm actually looking forward to this coach's corner, my favorite segments are the ones about Europeans. ^^

    What do you think the over/under on how much time he gives this game? 4 minutes? And what's the over/under for the amount of the fine CBC gives him for insensitive comments, especially considering the Russians on-ice celebration and after-party at the airport.

    Cherry is not nearly as ridiculous as he used to be. Don't think he can ever top this embarrassing display if he tried.

    Again -- the problem was a purely tactical one.

    So it will be the same old song and dance from xenophobe cherry. He makes me embarrassed to be canadian. And no he doesn't set any good example for kids, regardless of his self-aggrandization.

    I think he'll praise the Russians for showing heart. Won't be happy about the celebrating, probably, but then he never is about celebrating any way other than the Bobby way.

    He certainly doesn't rep the majority of Canadians. His demographic seems to be older people. Like people 65+ lol. Grumpy old men.

    I agree with you. I think he'll actually rip Team Canada a bit and give credit to the "heart" the Russians showed.

    He will certainly talk about the WJC kids who are instead in the NHL.

    Then he'll talk about how they should do it with some class.

    Then support the troops.

    How can he complain about that. Most of the eligible Ontario players not included are the ones playing in the NHL.
