I saw a couple bad calls. But on both sides. It balances out.

What I did notice at least some linemen were slow to get out of the way.

I don't think the officials changed the outcome of any games, but it was close. You don't often see a linesman hip check a hockey player at the blue line. Like you say, they were slow to get out of the way and didn't seem to know that it's sometimes OK to escape out onto the ice, if necessary.

About Bieber - I have considered your request carefully and since our countries are good friends and allies and you asked with a smiley...............NO! He's yours. Forever.

And Jim Carey, too.

Sorry.

Most were unprepared for the NHL grade speed game. Next time the corps should be brought in ahead of the games for orientation.

Sorry, guys. I deleted some posts that were off topic. I don't want the hockey thread to get waylayed.

Thanks, Mercator. I was a tad concerned when we struggled against Latvia but I guess they were still getting revved up. I am just glad that our Kanadian media is no longer blathering on about how the most important thing is to show up and to compete and to be inclusive and so on and that winning doesn't really matter. You have never had that problem in the U.S., as far as I can tell.

Of course winning matters! That's why they have timers, finish lines, medals and so on. Winning is not everything but it is also nothing to shy away from. Our media/leaders seem to finally have accepted that it is not only OK to play hard to win, but as a true competitor and athlete, it is our duty to always play to win and to never just show up, never back down, never quit....and not just in hockey. We saw a lot of that from many athletes and many countries and it was inspiring.

Fortunately the NHL players are exempt from the participation trophy mentality. The league is brutal. Things they do to win... I for one don't think they are overpaid. To those who do I say try just one concussion and see what it's worth to ya. But I digress. Good for toews and Crosby to come through finally. I only hate them when they punish Detroit.
