Yesterday's game Fin-USA was one of the most exciting I've ever seen.

RE: 2012 IIHF World Championship
Russia turned out to be the best team this year (even if they hadn't had Malkin in their team), let's hope Finland takes revenge next year in Stockholm. ;)

Quote:When the dust settled on the tournament, the organisers and the representatives of the IIHF met the press to discuss how things had gone.
Basically, the mood was quite upbeat, with the idea of a two-host tournament being broadly welcomed, but there is room for improvement before next year, when the roles are reversed and the Swedes take the lead position.
Attendances all told came to more than 450,000 spectators - an average of just over 7,040 fans at each of the 64 matches.
Nevertheless, in venues that each seat more than 13,000, the glass can be seen to be barely half-full.
It was painfully obvious at some of the early afternoon games - particularly in Stockholm - that the cocktail of so many matches and hefty ticket prices (with little variation shown in the prices between "attractive" and "less attractive" encounters) caused large empty spaces in the stands.

Hopefully the tickets won't be as expensive next year so that real hockey fans can afford the games.
