Can Canada win the World Championship?
Mon, May 12, 2008

Canada overcame its first true challenge at the IIHF World Hockey Championship but had some worrisome flaws exposed in the process.

Dany Heatley's second goal of the game with 46.8 seconds left in the third period lifted Canada to a 5-4 victory over the U.S. He one-timed a Rick Nash pass over the glove of Craig Anderson while falling to the ice for his tournament-leading sixth goal.

Full story: Canada made to work in win over U.S.

Is Canada good enough to win the World Championship?

gee I dont know how about winning the scoring title as an 19 year old ? Being named the leagues most valuable player ? Maybe you didnt hear about them awards.

Where did your hero Malkin do in the finals ? I can tell you he did a great disappearing act.

Yea Talbot and Roberts did more than Crosby in the finals. You know nothing about hockey, now I see why you take so much abuse from the others. Damn your an Oilers fan to boot, now I get it.

Ken, your so typical of a hockey fan who does not understand the game. What has Crosby done. Christ, Talbot and Roberts have done more for the team than Crosby. He scored two fluke goals in a game completely controlled by the refs and hence league to drag things out. Crosby would not have scored any goals if he was in the penalty box where he should have been and where anyone else would have been. But not the NHLs (Canada's) appointed golden boy. By the way, clown three games does not make a season, then again you seem to think the game is comprised of two periods.

Its easy to see you know nothing about hockey. Canada out played your heros for 2 periods. The third period they tried to protect a 2 goal lead, if they didnt sit back all period they would have won.

You have stated you think Malkin is better than Crosby more than once. Well your hero hasnt done anything for 3 games in the most important series of his career so far. Shows you what he is made of.

You need a reality check because you are so clueless about hockey that your comments are a sad and pathetic jokes.

Ken, are you on crack? where or when have I ever stated Malkin was my hero. By hero I assume you mean favorite player. I have stated Malkin is one of the leagues best. Maybe the guy is tired, afterall he carried the team all season long while your hero Syd was nursing his high ankle sprain. And who gives a flying puck about the first two periods, the team lost and Russia won. My point was to point out that Canada did not have the great team everyone was stating they did. I was pissed off at guys like Phaneuf and others who would sooner golf or sit at the cottage than play for Canada. Your getting tiring.

That gold medal game was Canada's, they lost it by sitting back in the third period. They out played the Russians for the first two periods and tried sitting on a 2 goal lead.

I am Canadian, I assume you arent always ripping Canadian players and then saying how great soft europeans are.

Malkin even said before the finals started he was tired, no Canadian or American would ever say anything that stupid before the biggest series of their careers.

So much for your hero huh Pete ?

We lost plain and simple. Canada came a swining but died out in the end. Russian Won. Life goes on. We should be happy that we even manage to placed in the top three.

It's not that Canad hockey program sucks or that Canada is not good at their other National Sport which is hockey ((FYI Lacross is our National Sport ironically)). It's that other countries are getting better in hockey and Canada can't be expected to win every single Championship in Hockey every single time. That is virtually impossible.

Who knows in the Gold Medal Game some time down the road many years from now etc. it might be Canada vs Italy, or Japan, or China or whatever country.

Ken, if you really were a Canadian and a hockey fan you would know only one game counted, the gold medal game. I stated in my comment prior to the start of the tournament that Russia would win and they did. not any of your wussy, if and or, but crap. Who cares what the score was in the second period. At the end of the game I watched Russia had more goals. Shut up and go back to late nite poker.

Loser since 67 and most likely allot longer than that. If you can read and it's doubtful you can, go back to page 4 and read my comment dated 2008-04-29 08:30:27 where I predicted the Russians would be Canada. Not much too say now eh loud mouth clown.
Pete, 2008-05-26 14:19:28

Pete,

Canada was up 4 - 2 going into the third period. They lost because they just sat back and let the Russians take it to them and tried to play defence and protect a 2 goal lead. If they would have played the same as they did for the first 2 periods Canada would have won.

For you to attack my comment which I made before the tournament started and yours at me after the tournament shows how childish you are. In case you arent aware Canada didnt lose a game until the very last one, the gold medal game. I am starting to really believe you are a 12 year old kid with way to much time on your hands.
Ken, 2008-05-26 13:19:58

"P" for brain Pete will probably say...Canada.Goes fine with everything else he posted so far....lol...
