    That was ridiculous. Finland had like 2 NHL players on th roster and Russia basically had their Olympic team minus Tarasenko and Panarin.

    Yeah. I mean the whole thing followed the NHL in being bizarro land though... in what universe does Simon have double the points of Malkin in the same number of games and Hornqvist almost double :lol:

    Maybe Malkin is simply over the hump, on the decline...

    Possible... but you haven't watched Simon whiff on 99.9% of his opportunities on net for the last season :lol: He had 12 freaking points in 10 games in the tournament but only 28 in 71 games this season... and some of that time was playing with Crosby and missing wide open nets over and over and over :nuts:

    I guess the extra time and space that an Olympic-sized rink allows for could be a significant factor.

    It’s funny how that works. Ovechkin never plays well on big ice either. Some players are just better when there is less time and space. I never liked playing on Olympic sized ice sheets, just too damn wide.

    Yep. Hoping it carries over to the NHL next year despite the rink size as I can see this being a "see he belongs on the top line with Syd, just look at what he did in the IIHF" thing for Sullivan :lol: The guy really is great with the puck, he just couldn't seem to bury chances most of the time.

    Wasn't intending to watch the Finals, but tuned in for about half of game 2 before inevitably passing out early again. Loving the intensity, will actually start to tune in more.

    Nice 2nd effort on the Tarasenko goal, still amazed he got that much elevation on the shot considering how stretched out he was.

    If I were Boston, I would be pissed about that no-call tripping, prior the the St Louis goal... won't see me complaining about it though :taunt:

    Definitely a missed call... but Boston fans talking about the series being rigged is pathetic when the power play opportunities have been 20 to 13 in favor of Boston :rofl:

    Really hope the Blues show up with a dominant performance. That seems to be their MO in the playoffs, but I guess we'll see.

    Binnington looks like he played a hell of a game... Murray 2.0?

    Well, at least the team that knocked Dallas out is the one that won the Cup :lol: Jamie Benn could have ended them several times in game 7 :erk:
