The americans are a let down yet again. They were meant to do well, and they might get relegated to the B division.

I would state that Americans do not care however, America always cares about every sport on a bureaucratic level, even if not on a populus level. However, you guys do suck, plain and simple. I have to admit the attempts at the grassroots level (which emulates our program to a 'T') has produced some quality players, but still, you suck.Originally Posted by PumpingIron
And on the 'Yeah, but it's hockey'..Don't even get me started on Baseball man.

Pumping Iron, as your title states "Wanna-be Toughguy", you should then come to realize that possibly the toughest atheletes around are Hockey Players. Tough on many levels... not to mention it combines grace, skill, power, accuracy, strength, speed, reaction time.. .everything.. It is a great sport.. try playing it.
Also, if you have this disdain for Hockey, why are you in the NHL forum?

Last time I checked there aren't many 225lb figure skaters checking eachother at high speeds, nor have there been too many fights in figure skating.Originally Posted by DAdams91982

Baseball is a decent sport but you cannot even compare the two in terms of the power, skill, accuracy, balance, speed, stamina, strength and pretty much every other attribute needed to be a quality athlete. As Ubi alluded to, Hockey players are probably the toughest athletes on the planet. Baseball and gritty performances are not synonymous terms.Originally Posted by PumpingIron
And in terms of the other thing, keep dreamin' son.

Calm down... relax... start breathing... It was a joke. Not to mention hockey is one of my favorite sports. Well after American Football, Rugby, and baseball of course.

Canada won bc they have a high population? i mean the most money? i mean their the only one with the resources to play on ice surfaces? They won casue theyre the best plain and simple the tourney proved it. Next year is a new year and i hope to be proud of somthing going on here.
hockey not only is fast, but requires to control an object with an object not as easy as say throwing a ball, compared to hitting said ball with another object. Furthermore hitting somthing and controlling and "dangling" is the next level of skill. Legal fighting, playing injured, insane speed, insane dexterity on blade of steel (awesome game lol), object controled object control, hittting, and the fact that you have to learn how to skate is a few good reasons to say hockey destroys baseball in terms of athlete skill. I think every team has what it takes to win canadas edge is heart and coaching.

Canada won because hockey is their life. the country created hockey and they should be the best at it.
just like the US created that horrible sport basketball and the US destroys everyone else at it.
a lot of American players go to Canada to train for hockey for good reason.

And the US doesn't destroy everyone at basketbal anymore.
The Grassroots of development is gone, and now you have selfish players. Alot of countries have caught up. Look at home much most NBA teams spend on scouting outside of the US.
Canada on the otherhand continues to develop rounded hockey athletes

Oh, and I did like Blades of Steel, and Nintendo's Hockey, so don't think I'm completely against the sport..
