    The German's are looking like a classic quarter final nightmare opponent as well. Special teams are usually the difference in the quarters and Germans are great at those.

    Well, I wonder how much influence Dale Hunter has on the selection process as well.

    He was an offensive contributor for sure but still a grinder.

    I didn’t say anything about the Americans. Canada didn’t look good in this game. This isn’t a nationality war on my front. I comment objectively on the hockey I watch in this tournament.

    Well, it just seems as if Germany makes all of their opponents look bad for stretches during their games.

    At some point, they're just playing good.

    It happens every year, so it’s not only Hunter. It’s the way Hockey Canada operates.

    I gave them credit in the initial post you quoted. I was commenting on all three games Canada has played.

    I haven't been impressed with Canada consistently, but I can say that about all of the teams in this pool.

    There's a reason why they all had the same record.

    No team has really separated themselves yet in my mind with the relatively small sample size of games to date.

    Every team seems to have some weakness or some stretch of bad play which makes you question putting all of your life savings on them.

    No, I'm saying that increasing the population of a country doesn't automatically make a sport more popular.

    It also wouldn't automatically make a sport less popular.

    I'm not sure what's happening with this conversation.

    Glad to see Germany putting on a good performance this tournament. They deserve to be here and next year they will be even better since lots of their best players are 17/18.

    I was talking about hockey popularity and you started talking about population.

    Canada has a population of, what, 38 million? So if your population suddenly exploded into 325 million that would mean Canada let 287 million people immigrate. Soccer is the most popular sport for the rest of the world so chances are that Hockey would no longer be Canadas #1 sport.

    You were saying that if hockey was more popular in the US they would dominate.

    And I responded by saying that if Canada had the US population they would dominate.

    The whole argument is ridiculous.

    Soccer is already played by more people in Canada than hockey is anyway.

    Yeah, it’s absurd to think that hockey would get more popular in the US to the point of domination of the sport.

    A world where 325 million Canadians would probably produce a better hockey team than 35 million Canadians?

    Sure.
