Canada under a Shroud from Turin

All those who dreamed of savouring a repeat of Canada's Men's hockey gold medal performance at the Salt Lake City games in 2002 should have realized early on that our hopes were in dire jeopardy this time around.

While we sent some of the best Canadian players to the current Olympics, it was obvious that we did not send our best team. The plays weren't clicking, there were a huge number of give-aways and our goal production was nothing short of embarassing.

They'll be a lot of second guessing about player selection, and I want to get my two cents worth in. Magic is an elusive quality - something that was abundant four years ago but in very short supply this time around. And when magic fails, you've got to fall back on discipline and practice. Just by picking great hockey players in no way guarantees either.

If possible, we should enlist entire lines, both offensive and defensive. This way our men's hockey emissaries will be more of a cohesive team, rather than a national disgrace.

Gretzky - realize that Team Canada contains two words, one of which is team.

And if I had any html skills whatsover, I would frame this post with heavy black crepe.

I did, and lost a bottle of vodka (at some future occasion). A small price to support the home side, but what a disastrous Olympics as far as Men's hockey is concerned.
