I'd like to see a rematch of the 2010 Gold medal game.

I already know the results. Spoiler alert:

Spoiler:
USA women beat Canada for Gold, Sweden beats Finland for Bronze. I can't guarantee the winners of those games, but those will be the participants.

Definitely. I'm in "anybody but Russia" mode already. USA gets stuck in the home team's pool again though.

I'd like to see USA/CAN again, but I'm doubtful. They don't play well outside of North America. I think USA's group is brutal and can easily see them in the qualification round.

Hence one reason for my lack of interest.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

Looking at the time of these games, it is such a waste to send these players over to Russia. They are all in the morning, or early morning, when most people are at work or still sleeping, as the same thing happened in Italy in 2006 and Nagano in 1998.

Hopefully this is the last time this dumb league shuts down its season for 2 weeks, as the Olympics never have any coat-tails in the ratings once the NHL season starts back up with the casual fan. It also pisses me off that there are alot of players who have minor injuries, yet will still go over to Russia. EVERY player's allegiance should be to their NHL team first, and Olympics second, as that is why I have always been against the NHL players going to the Olympics.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

Does NBC block it's streaming if you are out of the US?

Edit** Apparently not:

*Is NBC Sports Live Extra available internationally?
Due to broadcasting regulations, NBC is only allowed to show NBC Sports content on the internet in the United States and U.S. Territories. Users outside of these locations will still be able to access an extensive set of non-event video content on NBCSports.com.

I'd love to see Marty playing on the right side with Crosby and Kunitz.

Henrik Sedin is out. I guess there's no point then in bringing the other one.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

I am going to whip-up a DVD Talk Olympic Hockey Pool. Format will be similar to the one used for the last few World Cups:

2010 World Cup: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-talk...-cup-pool.html

I'll start a new thread and post a link here once I get it set up this evening.

I've got the preliminary pool thread up, though it is not open for picks yet.
http://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-talk...ckey-pool.html

I still have to calculate and reveal the team values. Once that's been posted, the pool will be open for your selections.

I understand why the NHL doesn't want it longer, but I wish the men's tournament went the entire Olympics. They're taking 2 weeks off, what's another 5 days?

More guys pulling out as we get closer due to injuries. Mikko Koivu and Valtreri Filppula are both out for Finland, Lubomir Visnovsky and Marion Gaborik are out for Slovakia and Henrik Sedin is out for Sweden and is being replaced by Marcus Johansson

It's not really "hockey" but was there ever any discussion of getting bandy (a national sport of Russia) into the Olympics?

Watching USA women live at this hour with doc and Pierre is weird.

Yeah! USA. Playing Finland, probably will be closest game in a while.

I was wondering if there would be a night owl to watch the USA women.

Good start for the Canadian girls with a 5-0 win over the Swiss. I like the black jerseys.

Apparently the Sochi Bear was harassing the USA women's bench quite a bit.
