2014 Olympics: USA doesn’t medal; Canada/Sweden open thread

The ice hockey tournament of the 2014 Winter Olympics comes to an end today, as Canada (Rick Nash) takes on Sweden (Henrik Lundqvist, Carl Hagelin) in the gold medal game at 7am. Yesterday, Team USA (Ryan McDonagh, Ryan Callahan, Derek Stepan) failed to show up against Finland, getting shut out 5-0 in the bronze medal game. With the loss, Team USA will not medal, closing out a disappointing Olympics.

Use this as your open thread for the Sweden/Canada game. Discuss whatever you want, just keep it civil.

    • Yeah. Tell me about it but quite a few Hawks players are on that Gold winning team and will be coming back with a vengeance. I hope Nash does too. Disappointed about Zucs injury and that USA didn’t win Gold or even Medal. Does anyone think the Zuccarello injury will force Sather to add a top 9 forward?
      Stewart or Stasny?

  • Yeah!! Canada!!! Poor Hank, I felt sorry for him, it was like he was in a shooting gallery. Congrats to big No. 61, he played a great game and I recall a defensive play that saved a goal.

  • Anyone hear what’s Boomer Esiason said over the last couple of days? He thinks Cally being dealt is pretty much a done deal and it will be to another team in the East. A lot of people think it’s for Marty St Louis. I’m not sure how I would feel about that and I don’t know why Tampa would want to make that trade.

    • I was listening to the Boomer & Carton show the other morning while driving and could actually feel my brain beginning to atrophy.

  • It’s such a great feeling to see the US Men denied a medal & the US Women lose the Gold in such heartbreaking fashion.

  • 4:27 PM in Hawaii… been looking online all day for any news on Cally. His trade will be a sad one if it does happen. Makes the think of when Tom Seaver got traded from the Mets why I was young. We all know sports is big business now but it will hurt. The only thing New York fans have always asked from out athletes is that they give it all on the ice/field/court. Cally always has. Lets hope for the best.
