Or, who needs the NHL anyway, fucking asshole owners.
What makes it sweeter is that the best junior players were available for the tournament so Canada can't use that as an excuse (ignoring the fact that other countries have Junior players in the NHL.) In fact, because we have won the tournament with all the best players, Canada has lost the right to use that excuse, only we can now.
Ah yes, so delicious.
Of course we didn't beat Canada to win gold, no, we had to beat a team that was actually really good and wouldn't curl up into a little ball like Steve Ott once he realized Douglas Murray was coming after him. No, Sweden is a very good team, it took our boys' very best effort to win, and they did just that.
Oh, and player of the match was this guy, he is a Californian by the way, for those people that think we don't really care about hockey.
Sorry Sleza, couldn't find any pictures of Team Sweden crying together.
Now excuse me, I have to find a way to void Gibson's contract with the Ducks so Wilson can sign him.
