sorry for gloating but it seems like the youngsters from up north blew it again,
The youngsters from up North have consistently demonstrated that they are one of the top teams in the world year after year after year after year.

They 'blew' nothing.

Congrats to the American team for a gritty performance and refusing to give up.

Canada is a hockey nation everyone likes to beat because (1) they have won sooo often, and (2) they are very passionate about their hockey.

I, for one, am very proud of them.

Yeah, I think its really good for US .. hope they can continue.. they are getting closer to being a stronger precense in the World Juniors .. ie last 10 years medals standings..

I dont think Canada has won gold in a while but have pounded silver(s) thru-out ...

Just dont break any chairs or trash any hotels like the US team did in Nagano ..congrats US ..

The final was a great game to watch, tho the outcome was annoying. Kinda like watching a Canucks game lately. At 3-1 I found the Canadians still trying for a few more instead of trying to protect their lead and they suffered for it.

I did find it curious that Kessler became a go to guy near the end, yet he can't even make the Canucks lineup on a regular basis.

I thought however that the US team earned the tie with great pressure in the third and better goaltending when it counted. A bad judgement on Fleury's part with a flukey result ruined a great finish. It was kind of like losing in the shoot out.

Congrats to the US team and fans, I wasn't as annoyed by the loss as I get when the Canucks lose to TORONTO, but then I follow the Canucks with a passion.

Ryan Kesler scored but did you listen to 1040 for the game .. they interviewed BURKE and he said that Kesler was not playing very good .. ?? maybe thats why he is not wearing the C Jersey ??
