Plus we've been good lately (3 out of 6) but before that the record really isn't that strong. I like our team, and I like our chances, but a number of teams have a chance to come away with the trophy imo. But I hope it's Canada in the end ;)

its always gets heated up after the 1st stage which rarely produces anything of note.

so close Belarus :sad: better beat the Swiss and make mince meat of the French.

Canada hasn't shown anything special so far. They were lucky to beat the USA.
Plus as someone wrote, host nations don't win.

I'm not 100% sure but I think Russia won one soon after it infact became Russia... somewhere in the 1992-1994 timeframe maybe? I don't exactly remember, it was a long time ago...

apparently before the match a bus with the Russian team was stopped by cops who didn't allow it to get any closer to the rink. Players had to walk.
