Oh, the pundits will be a real pleasure to listen to today. They'll be pointing fingers and painstakingly pinpointing the problems as they see them. Team Canada was a failure at the World Junior Hockey Championships.
The boys from Finland upset our guys in quarter final action last night. They came from behind to tie the game in the final minute and scored a beauty to win it in overtime. 2-1 was the final score.
The men in charge of the organization will be worried sick about their jobs this morning. Some of the young men who played for Team Canada will be devastated.
The fact is, those Finnish boys are good. They played well. Another fact: Switzerland upset Sweden yesterday. That's not "supposed" to happen but it did.
It used to be any one of 3 or 4 teams could win that tournament. Now it's any one of 6 or 7 teams that can win it. That makes the game of hockey and that tournament better, doesn't it?
