Let's be honest though, it's the Spengler Cup.

With the 4 AM start times (9 AM for the Russia game), I haven't been able to watch much, but I like what I've seen out of Canada. Drouin has impressed me so far, and he's definitely someone I'd like to see the Leafs draft.

Canada is gonna need another miracle, down 4-0 after 2 periods. Johnny Gaudreau <3 Flames might have a gem in him.

USA v. Sweden for the championship. My two favorite hockey nations going at it.

Poor Switzerland. Every game they lost in the tournament was in either OT or a shootout.

Its great to see another country join the elite.

Lol. When used correctly I think that's the best .gif on the Internet.

I don't think anything that happens in this tournament should be too surprising, these are all teenagers afterall. I know I was far from consistent when I was 18!

America is going to win the Gold, because John Gibson is a beast.

..... look who's about to be right. :)

And a Duck!

I can't wait for this kid.

Surprising to see Canada AND Russia go down. Another Bronze medal matchup for these two, and one hockey body will be mighty pissed. Canada for being mad at not winning gold every time, and Russia for their performance on home ice.

USA going for the gold. God it's so nice to watch a little live meaningful rooting-interest hockey.

Pittsburgh guy, too! Good to see western PA starting to produce real prospects. Brandon Saad of the Hawks is out of Pittsburgh as well.

Pittsburgh (well, western PA) has a lot of dudes both in this tournament and in youngster hockey in general. And it's only going to get better as time goes by from the Crosby effect. Hockey there has come a long way real fast from Ryan Malone being the first to make it to the NHL.

And to anyone who ever complains about the NHL's southern expansion, I think the players from California, Florida, and Texas on this team speak for themselves. Hockey IS growing demographically in the US (James Mirtle wrote a really good column about this) and that's a very good thing.

Also I hope Don Cherry lives to see the day that Canada is as irrelevant to hockey as England is to soccer.
