Demitra's played great, but all he's really proven is he plays with a lot more heart and determination in international play than he does with the Canucks in the NHL.

Hahaha, sometimes I just can't take you clowns seriously.

Calgary Flames = Jarome Iginla.

If he struggles, Flames struggles, yes? so lets blame him, shall we?

Only caught the last 10 minutes of this game, but I'm so happy for Kipper, Hagman and Jokinen. They played great and I'm glad Kipper won a bronze -- glad Kurri had the courage to go back to him after he was pulled vs. the USA.

Just looking at the celebrations and all the comraderie on the ice after with Selanne, Koivus, Jokinen, Hagman and Peltonen, I think a lot of these guys wanted to go out like this.

For the small size of the country I'd say there's pretty good 'hockey' gene in the Finnish gene-pool.
