Sochi 2014 Men's/Women's Hockey Discussion

Recommended Posts

Considering the pre-tournament thread is just that, and the women's tournament has started, time to get this bastard rolling. First, a reminder of what we're defending:

Finland women's hockey program is back. This is a great game.

 

As for the jersies, before the tourney I liked the reds and whites, but not the blacks. After seeing them being worn now, I've flipped. Those black unis were fantastic, but these reds are nothing special. Whites to be decided.

Kevin Dineen given a bench minor for refusing to start play because he wanted to have a word with the referee.

 

Typical international refereeing.

Would appreciate it if Jordo could fix this title, though.

Intense game. Canada to the PP after tons of pressure with 15 minutes to go. Still 0-0.

Noora Raty should probably get the first star for this game. She is fantastic.

That should finish it off. 3-0 on a nice passing play. Johnston.

Noora Raty with the third star. Well deserved. Szabados with the shutout gets the second, and Hefford gets the first.

Game wasn't really close. Shots were 42-14.

 

Finnish goalie held them in it. So much for the theory of Finland closing the gap on Canada/US.

I think when people say that they're speaking more about mens hockey. Anytime I hear someone talk about women's hockey, they say how everyone else is still way far behind Canada and the US.

There's no doubt that over the last 5 years or so Finland has made some great strides in women's hockey. Any change of sports culture takes time, and Finland is well on it's way. Outside of Canada/USA, Finland is next in line.

Canada's first practice lines:

 

Kunitz-Crosby-Carter;

Sharp-Toews-Nash;

Marleau-Getzlaf-Perry;

Benn-Tavares-Bergeron;

St. Louis/Duchene extras...

Personally, I'd rather play Duchene and St Louis than Carter/Nash/Marleau. Or at least give Taveres and Bergeron more of a role than them.
