    What f*cken decade is this? Is that betamax?

    Hockey is dirty and full of assholes. I've noticed a lot of hillarious takes during this tourney.

    Sik hits a guy in the balls and he's a bastard. Agreed. The guy cross checks him in the lower back before that.. just a tap.

    Czech slashes a wrist.. he's a bastard. Agreed. Czech gets kicked in the balls... literally kicked in the balls! Poor Swede was falling.

    To be clear, they're all shitty plays.

    Same with the headbutts are not that hard.. who cares, don't headbutt! I don't care if it's a soft headbutt or a hard one.. when you start headbutting, there is a problem.

    Medals tossed in stands
    Helmets not taken off

    You'd think this was a bunch of entitled teenagers or something!

    What does that has anything to do with Canada allways getting away trying to injury other teams players :)? While other teams getting their players suspended when they doing the same.

    This is a different argument...

    If you are arguing that the IIHF is awful at reffing and discipline.. agreed. The 'highlight' reel would be insane.

    If you are saying ONLY Canadians (and those dirty Czechs) get away with this stuff, you lost me.

    I do get the arguments... you get suspended for a tiny headbump that probably didn't even scratch the visor.. but Scott Stephen's can hit you so hard you retire and not get a penalty. It's apples and oranges.

    Eg. a Dman could wire a shot and break a guys wrist.

    Recently, in Ontario, a goalie almost died on the ice... literally. Dude went skate first into him... he almost bled out on the ice. They actually ended the game as it was so upsetting and there was so much blood. He's okay now.. not playing though. No penalty on the play... but the headbutt(s) was a suspension.

    There are rules
    There are dangerous plays
    There are assholes in hockey from every nation

    Yes, I like Radko Gudas!

    Who the f*ck is Doctor Ryan Allenby and how does he know what the Czechs were doing?

    My first guess.. without researching... Leafs doctor.

    You've dredged something up from 2004! This year's team Canada junior team have played very clean, I've watched every minute. They've been given suspensions for minor things, got so your argument just doesn't hold up.

    It's insane that you go from incidents in a game against the Czechs to outrage against Canada.

    I never said that the Czech got away with this stuff did I? I'm just saying that when they looking at the incidents after the game is played IIHF more often than not rule out in the favore of Canada and giving the middle finger to any other team... I don't see Edlers hit on Staal any more dirty than Nidermayers hit from behinde on Forsberg... but the outcome was different Nidermayer could still play while Edler was suspended from international hockey for a few games...

    Yeah because this is just this year we talking about... my argument does hold up otherwise pleas explain why Canadians more often than not getting of the hook while injury other teams players... when other teams gets suspensions for doing the same.

    Let's slow that down.. a few suspensions and game misconducts? Captain not taking helmet off. I wouldn't say Canada has been upstanding by any standard.

    Off the captain wearing his helmet... yes

    To add to that list... I also saw Wahlstom targetting a head and get nothing!
    I saw another brutal hit by an American on a Finn that was about 100x worse than Foote and get 2 minutes

    the IIHF is the problem, not the players passports.

    Berggren was questioned about the kick. Roughly translated:

    "Just pure bad luck, obviously I did not intend it. I was infront of the goal trying to pull their player away from our goalie. Then I was pushed by the referee and the czech player. I fell backwards and lost my balance."

    I think his story is very consistent with what we can see on the replays. Swedes were up 5-0, they kept calm the entire game and barely had a penalty. To me it's highly unlikely that he would suddenly snap for something so trivial and risk a suspension. Makes absolutely no sense.

    I'm 50/50 on that...

    That gold run... whatever it was.. 6 in a row I think? Canada was the least penalized team every year.

    Now, if you were the Czech players mother... sitting in the front row. Would it still make sense?

    I get why it makes sense to a Swedish fan. I'm struggling with I needed to kick his balls to stay standing.lol

    A little off topic, but as a hockey fan, the worst thing that happened to Czech Hockey, is the breakup of Czechoslovakia. It is a shame to see the Czechs and the Slovaks perform so terrible in international hockey competitions for over a decade. Ever since the Czechs won Gold in the 1998 Olympics, and some World Championships in the early and mid 2000's- they have seen early exits in the WJHC, World Cup, Olympics, and WHC.

    As a hockey fan, it would be great to see the Czech Republic merge with Slovakia again. The breakup has weakened a potential great hockey power. Even though i cheer for Canada, i like to see other nations like the former Czechoslovakia perform well in hockey. Citizens of both countries should demand this, so they could be field one great hockey team and sports teams in international competitions. Instead, they are reduced to early exits year in and year out. Not sure how possible is for them to merge again, but a joint team would be great for hockey competitions.​

    FTR.. I have nothing against whoever the kicker was. Sweden was very gentleman like in the slaughter today. But the behind the net angle is not screaming innocent to me.

    It had no impact on anything. The States got away with the 2 most dangerous plays of the day IMO and I don't think of them as dirty either. I was actually a fan of a lot of those guys as I wanted the Oil to draft an American and there like 4 high end American's clumped in the 6 to 12 spots in the last draft. I don't like the Czech slashes at all.
