    When are Canadians going to realize and accept the fact that Canada is not THE dominant hockey Nation?

    I mean is it so hard to be objective? Canada was 4th in Nagano, Canada finished only 3rd in their group at Salt Lake City ... and the only thing that Canada seems to remember, is that they won the gold medal in 2002, as if nothing else mattered. :dunno:

    Usually a champion shows his greatest face in defeat ... that does not seem to apply to hockey. :shakehead

    don't even bother, it's like trying to explain directions to a blind man.

    Wilka, if Canada is not currently the dominating nation internationally, which is it?
    They have won 2 straight World Championships and the Olympics.
    While I certainly don't think Canada is in a league of its own (which some here may seem to think) I also think that they have in fact been the most dominant nation the last 2-4 years or so.
