    I follow it, but with the games being in Russia this year, I'm not waking up at 4am to watch Canada vs Germany

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    I pay attention to the juniors a little, but I don't put much stock in it. I didn't go nuts or pretend to be a USA fan when 2010 happened. Of course it's so lame this is the highest quality hockey we'll be seeing

    If this was the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, I'd be caring much more. I don't care much for the IIHF championships in the spring or the juniors this time of the year.

    EDIT: Is there a reason why you Canadians change your nationality flag on here yet you type "Go Canada"? I figured there must not be any pride by putting yourselves on Christmas Island, Bhutan and Aaland... as well as Myanmar and Kosovo in the past

    I don't remember ever putting "Go Canada," I simply enjoy watching hockey

    I'll be watching Russia vs USA intently

    Truth.

    Disagrees on the ladies however, you can always find a good looking one if you look hard enough, depending on what you like

    Do you classify Europeans into the same category as white people? I know some people who consider most Europeans "olive"

    No I gotcha, I'm the same way

    Toronto has a lot of Chinese, African american (Canadian?) and Filipino so I can see where your problem is. Inner city Toronto isn't going to help you in your case, though Mississauga would probably be more of what you're looking for

    hahaha. getting too offtopic.

    anyhow this was a good game. didnt catch the whole, but caught the extended highlights.



    Germany is completely awful at hockey. I dont even know why they play.

    I think the 2 main teams are Canada and Sweden. Hoping to see that final. Lets hope what happened against USA a few years back doesnt happen again.

    Russia are a strong contender since they are stacked up front, and are at home. Canada's advantage is that they have the best centers at the tournament easily, especially considering they have an NHLer on the first line in RNH. Heck, RNH has 7 points in 2 games!

    USA team seems weaker than usual this year

    I'm guessing we see Canada, Russia, and the US out of Group B (though Slovakia upsetting the US wouldn't shock me at all) and Sweden, Switzerland, and the Czech out of Group A

    I think Canada is stronger than Russia this year, even though they got home adv. RNH is playing amazing, but I got a feel hes going to be another Kadri. Start youth off well and disappoint later on.

    I remember Sweden won this thing last year... everyone that I knew was so mad Russia beat Canada. I'll probably watch highlights just so I can find future NHL draft picks, but not staying up at graveyard hours to watch this event live.

    if you didnt like your siblings, at the end of the day, if they were competing in an international event, youd still cheer for them no?

    Canada has a lot of shit wrong with it, it's far from perfect, but I'd take this over 90% of the countries in the world tbh.
