    It was a game in which Canada was likely the more talented team and was probably favored to win, even with the two goals. What is unfortunate is that the game had the makings of a classic US/Canada World Juniors game, regardless of the outcome. The fans and players were denied that, and instead we got a very forgettable game thanks to a couple of very bad calls.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        Combined bid or competing bids? I find Detroit a little humorous because ever since LCA opened they kept pushing the GLI further and further down the list before they effectively (or actually) kicked them out this year. On the other hand, they would get a bunch of Canadians to cross the border for the WJC that aren’t coming for college hockey.

            Interesting. That would mean either Plymouth or Yost as the second arena, so 3,500 or 5,800 capacity. Then again Buffalo did win in 2018 with a secondary arena only seating 1,800.

              If they truly mean Minneapolis only, I assume they would use the Target Center and Mariucci. Mariucci should be reduced to NHL size by then.

                  Gutsy, but I like it. The fear of course is having an over half empty 18k arena. If they price things right, it could work. Jets fans come down en masse for their games against the Wild, so a little distance from the border may not matter so much.

                  That leaves the secondary arena. It would likely be one of the two aforementioned Mariucci or Target Center. TRIA rink only holds 1200, I think that going too low. My personal pick in a perfect world would be the Coliseum. Hell, make it the primary. :^)

                    I would leave the X out of it save for perhaps the gold medal game. They could do Mariucci and Ridder which imho would be better than Target Center.

                      Marriuci will have smaller ice sheet then right?

                        Supposedly shifting to NHL size this off-season. Finally.

                        Edit: Never mind. I guess they’re going to 90’ wide. Really rounding out the corners to 24’ radius as well.

                          That gives potential for Mariucci to host the World Championships if they’re moving to 90’ wide. Probably won’t ever happen but that possibility would exist.

                            So, why did Olympic lose to NHL? 20 years ago, everyone would probably have bet the other way.

                              Good question. I am not sure. I just remember when they were building the new Mariucci in the 90's there was no question it was going to be Olympic size. In hindsight that appears to have been a very poor decision.

                              If I were to guess, I would say that the best reason that it lost was NHL players playing in the Olympics.

                                But by that logic it could have gone the other way, right? That could have been pressure to go Olympic everywhere?

                                Even though we never looked quite as effective on the big sheet, I really wish Olympic had won. Players are monsters compared to 1926. Either remove another player or increase the sheet size.
