This is a nice ceremony. Sweden doesn't look too distraught about losing.

I wonder if Putin is just fuming right now.

I do feel badly for Lundqvist. He played his freakin' heart out.

I hope Putin IS fuming! Damn Russians.

Canada is the hockey mecca of the universe!

The CBC commentators are ripping the notion that Canada ever had "goaltending issues" - 3 goals in 6 games.

I'm so happy! It was nice sharing the game with you @Lady Steel. Shower, groceries and celebrating are my Sunday.

Go have a nice nap!

Congratulations Canada

A dominating tournament - who knew Latvia would be Canada's toughest game

Now the question is whether the NHL players return in 2018

N.H.L. and Players Differ Over 2018 Games

N.H.L. players remain strongly in favor of the Olympics, and their participation is a joint decision. But the anti-Olympic faction among owners and executives has many reasons for saying no to Pyeongchang, and last week’s roll call of players who were injured at the Sochi Games touched off a renewed sense of opposition.

So players want to come back and a group of owners want to end it - as is often the case with big time sports today, TV may call the shots

A complicating issue is the presence of NBC, the N.H.L.’s American television partner. The network paid $963 million for the rights to the Pyeongchang Games, and it wants N.H.L. players on the ice there.

“We’ve expressed that opinion to the National Hockey League and to the N.H.L. Players’ Association,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman of the NBC Sports Group. “We can only tell them that this is our preference, that they’re there.”

Asked what the N.H.L.’s absence from Pyeongchang would mean to NBC, Lazarus said, “I can’t answer that question, and I hope I won’t ever have to.”

Like the Godfather, it sounds like NBC is making an offer to the NHL it couldn't refuse

Seeing Sidney Crosby in these international settings makes me appreciate how he, more than any of the great Steelers or Pirates who have played, is probably the most beloved athlete in Pittsburgh sports history when you take into account appeal outside of western Pennsylvania

@Atlanta Dan oh, they'll be in Korea. While the NHL may indeed be a business, it's a business for the fans. The fans want to see the super stars play against each other for two weeks every four years - the suits that own the teams can deal with that.
