Well when you lose 9:0 to Denmark then yes, that game was probably the only realistic chance they had, maybe France but they are much better too

Why does NHL, and on occasion, Olympic hockey only matter?

Many people seek after what they do not possess and are thus enslaved by the very things they want to acquire...because "precondition of that subjunctive". - Ivica LeFondre

Just to re-up this I read that 40% of the Finnish population watched their game against the US

Slovakian media making up vicious lies about the Russian players binge drinking after the Czech win. Are you friggin' kidding me Slovakia?! You think anybody's going to believe something that farfetched?!

This tournament is very tedious, it seems like the group stage is a month long (not literally but way too many games) to simply determine the same 5-6 teams (USA, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech) which will compete for the medals while they win group stage games by 6-7-8 goals. Once in a blue moon you'll have Slovakia, Switzerland or Germany make a semi run

There is simply no depth in the international game, especially when these aren't the strongest rosters available.

should do a major world cup with 8 teams only. next 8 teams in a 2nd division, and so on. the gap of quality between Rus, Swe, Fin, Cze, Can etc and Nor, Den, Ita, Gbr (lol), etc is mindblowing
