Norway?... NO WAY!
With the NHL on their Olympic break I thought I'd try my hand at an Olympic game day thread. There will be enormous pressure on Canada to acheive gold after the debacle that was 2006 and as always there will be questions about who was picked and probably even more questions about who wasn't picked to represent Canada in Vancouver.
There's no bigger question mark on this team right now than the goal-tending. Both Brodeur and Luongo have been pulled in their games leading up to the start of the Olympics and haven't been consistantly good for most of the season so far. Can the Canadian team get it together and win another Olympic gold? We like to think that this is our game and we dominate it but that simply hasn't been the case when it comes to Olympic Hockey. One gold in the span of 50 + years isn't going to cut it.
Lets start these games with a bang and dominate Norway like we know we can and serve notice to all the other teams that we're not only here to compete but to take the gold for the second time in the past three Olympic games and re-claim dominance at these games!
