  • Re: World Juniors -- Anybody? Bueller?

    It is a rather anti climatic trophy.

      Yup. More about the medal i guess. But that is one lame trophy.

          The silver and bronze things are so 80's Olympics. Participation trophys for the Ref's as well

            As a referee, in another sport, those "participation trophies" are actually quite cherished. It's a big deal to referee a final and it's nice to have something for it.

              I have to disagree a little with you there. I was a high school basketball referee for 17 years. It is VERY political and just getting to a playoff game is a tremendous accomplishment. At least they rate you on merit now and you have a shot. Back in the day you had no chance unless you "knew" enough people. So I think it is very significant for them.

                All I can think of is Ed Hochuli's "Yes, there are penalties in the pro bowl." Reffing is VERY tough work, and to even get a chance to work the tournament has to be a great thing.

                  Going back to 2010 gold medal, there's enough talent where we should do better at the senior level going forward.

                    You'd hope.

                    We've been good at the U-17, U-18 and U-20 levels for over a decade now.

                    Needs to translate to the national team at some point.


                    I will say I get more jacked for the WJCs than I ever do for the Olympics in terms of hockey.

                      As proof of that all you had to see was the tears in the Canadians' eyes when it was over. As much as I loved seeing the USA win, I actually felt bad for the Canadian players. They gave all they had, and more...it means SO much to them and their fans.

                      It's an old and tired cliche', but it really rings true here: It's a shame that one team had to lose.

                        It's still political to an extent but yeah there is a lot more merit involved now.

                          Well Bettman and co. are putting a stop to that. Hopefully the NHLPA keeps pressing because the US would have a real shot at gold in 2018.

                            Same here, just the emotion and effort these kids show is awesome.

                                Stayed home from my hockey to watch that.

                                Epic choice executed perfectly.
