2016 IIHF World Championship
Well since Kat didn't start the thread yet, I thought I might.

I only saw today's round robin between Sweden and Canada where we got our behinds handed to us. Oh well.

Looking forward to the Finland-Canada match-up on Saturday. It'll be a supercharged arena that's for sure.

Best of luck to the Finns. Smile

Thank you Aemma Smile

The Finnish team has had problems with a stomach flu amongst the players. Hopefully they will be fit for fight on Saturday.

We have a pretty awesome line up with Puljujärvi (5+7) - Aho (4+4) - Laine (3+6). It will be a good game no doubt. Too bad one of these awesome teams has to go home. sad

Jake Virtanen from Team Canada has both Canadian and Finnish passports, his father being born in Finland. He even has the Finnish Lion tattooed on his arm. Smile

Aaarrrgh! Virtanen!!!! It's a Finnish conspiracy!! ;) Tongue

But geez what a nail biter!! Nicely done Finland! But good grief, we Canucks aren't used to get ousted so early on! I need a drink!! Tongue

It was nice to see you guys win at home though. What an electrifying game and awesome fans in Finland. Smile

It was also nice to see Koivu handing Laine his player of the game award. Man, is that kid Laine ever huge!!!

Well, I guess on to cheering the Finns against Sweden.

Unfortunate that the Danes weren't able to upset the Russians. But you know that's Russia in hockey for you--they pull it out of a hat when they have to.

Happy kids!! Congratulations Finland! Smile

(I'll probably be able to see them play hockey professionally more often than you guys one day. Most will be playing for the NHL!! Big Grin )

Soulless mongrel!


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
