A National Disgrace: Canada's Hockey Team.

I can't believe I left work early to watch a tragedy unfold! Good God this hurts!!

So what went wrong? Ummm, I have a few places to start:

1. Allowing washed up, overrated, sub-par and underachieving geezers like Draper, Doan and Pronger instead of picking some new blood with Actual Talent like Spezza, Crosby, Strahl and Phaneuf.

2.The Coaching Staff: Quinn, Hitchcock and Martin, three blowhards, old school style coaching (slow play). Two of whom are having abysmal seasons, while the other is struggling to stay over 500. And Gretzky thought THEY would lead us to gold?

3. The old-style play of dump and chase is OVER! Somebody get this into their thick little skulls, nowadays you have to WORK the puck into the zone and attack the net. Not shoot and hope for a rebound...you bunch of morons!!!

4. Can someone explain to me why a bum like Bertuzzi was on this team?

5. Gretzky and Kevin Lowe should get the **** out!!! This isn't a team where you give spots to old buddies and guys who helped you out in the past, you stack a the team like this with players that are hot TODAY!!!



God dammit! I need to get drunk.

Only two goals in 12 periods. Seems like the guys forgot what game they were playing.

Would you be saying the same thing about all these characters if they had won? I think not...but that's not why I'm posting. As opposed to "What went wrong?", I think the more important question is "Why do (some) Canadians care so much?" Cheering for a bunch of overpaid athletes (in any sport) is a complete waste of time. It says a lot about our society that we need to entertain ourselves and escape by watching a bunch of grown adults chase a puck around ice - pathetic!

Yeah, i'm so damn disappointed. I mean it's not like we're suppose to have the best hockey players in the world or anything?
