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?

pete puck for brains

Well then it sucks to be you now doesnt it kid ? lol. Yea right as if you can afford season tickets for the non playoff Oilers with your $ 2 allowance from your daddy every week kid lol.

If he didnt have a good reason not to play for Canada then he is only hurting himself and his chances to play for Canada in the Olympics in 2010.

Seems like you have an obession with him lol, thats kinda scary kid lol.

Wayne, he doesn't need to explain himself. He has you, self proclaimed excuse maker to the stars, to do that for him. In closing as a fan of the game and a season ticket holder (not flames) I think we are entitled to his reasons for not playing for his country.

We lost the final because the coach forgot the cardinal rule here. When you have a lead you keep pressing forward. The Russians showed a lot of grit and deserved the win because they didn't stop playing. Forget the excuses about the iced puck because we should never have been in that extra time anyway.

The game was ours to lose in the final period. Tip for the coaches coming up here (Guy's the other team can't score if you are going forward with the puck).

Suck it up Canada we lost fair and square same rules for everyone Don Cherry.

Phaneuf hasnt said why he didnt play, he sure doesnt have to explain himself.
Wayne, 2008-05-22 11:41:06

Wayne, why didn't he play? Put your money where your large mouth is. You won't cause you know you would be wrong once again.

pete 12 year old kid

You are jealous the Oilers dont have a defenceman as good as Phaneuf is. Its easy to see, you cant think of anything else so you use the same thing over and over.

Typical stupid Oilers fan bashing a Flames player for not knowing the reason he didnt play for Team Canada.

Just keep assuming you know why kid, you know what happens when you assume things right lil one ? lol

So I take it your Russian Lena?

With the state of Russia's economy and going from a superpower to a country that is in a demographic decline, it is of no surprise that Lenningrad Lena has to hold on tight to this victory like a young Russian girl holds on to her "Joseph Stalin" doll.

Again with the officiating, it's freaking bruttal. For this game of hockey to be as good as it can be, we need to do something about the officiating. It's almost as bad as olympic figure skating judges. It's a sad state of affairs in all of hockey from initiation to pros. I have to take one last kick at Dion Phageuff, if guys like him would have sucked it up and played, Canada could have iced a much better team. Phaneuff, Smyth, Brodeur, you should be ashamed of yourselves!

Do you remember this rant" From reading some of your comments and thinking you know alot about hockey last nights exhibition loss means nothing.

They will win the tourney easily. This years team is at least as good as last years if not then better."

Your an pucking idiot buddy. Better luck next time.
