I'm not even upset about Canada losing. I think our olympic team is the one with the real potential to go macho, and to be honest a lot of the players on our junior team just seem like punks. Not to mention it got really fucking annoying hearing the constant analysis on the 16 year old dud McDavid who is supposedly better than Crosby.... Nope totally invisible/detrimental to the team basically throughout the whole tournament.

I wish intense/back-and-forth hard-checking games didn't have to end in a stupid individual skills competition. The shootout is probably the worst change the NHL has ever made to the game of hockey.

Play offs in each leuages OT till 1th goal no metter even 3 days and play off must be till 4 wins

There are always new generations of stars. You must not follow a lot of hockey if you think countries like Russia, Finland, and Sweden won't be competitive once their current batch of stars retires.

And Crosby isn't American.

Lack of new stars, eh? I mean, just look at our team winning the gold at youth worlds, Rasmus Ristolainen was an inspiration. In addition to Granlund there's Sami Vatanen (Anaheim), Alexander "Sasha" Barkov Jr. (Florida), Olli Määttä (Pittsburgh) and Antti Raanta (Chicago).

Here's some potential future stars:

Russia: Mikhail Grigorenko, Nikita Kucherov, Valeri Nichushkin, Vladimir Tarasenko, Slava Voynov, Nail Yakupov, Nikita Zadorov

Not to mention the fact that OV and Geno still have plenty of years left in them. A slew of good-great goalies helps too, with Bobrovsky, Khudobin, and Varlamov - the oldest of which is 27.

Finland: Aleksander Barkov, Mikael Granlund, Olli Maatta, Rasmus Ristolainen, Sami Vatanen

These guys will always be stacked in net. When Kipper retired there wasn't a worry about their INT teams because they have their future goalie right now in Rask, but a lot of their other guys are also quality starters. Lehtonen and Rinne are both a little more experienced, and Niemi's always a viable option.

Swedes have such a wealth of talent already active and coming up it would take me too long to comprise all the names. Guys like Landeskog and Karlsson will help lead the way for years to come, plus you've got Brodin, Ekman-Larsson, Hedman, and Lindholm all capable of playing top-four minutes if the need arises.

Hockey across the ocean will continue to thrive, and a lot of the traditional European teams will continue to do well (with the possible exception of the Czechs and Slovaks being bumped by the likes of Switzerland - or maybe even Slovenia or Latvia).

Yes Russia has stars but if they stay in KHL they can wanish , overprise more money simply to stay and play ....

Grandlund , Vatanen are good indeed, but seems from Fin dont come so e many drafted players anymore

Lamdeskog , Ekman-Larsson yes good names, played but theyw ont eb Forsbergs, Sundin's and such players anymore

Cz and Svk degredating, latvia well I dpoubt they will have many ozolins or Girgenosns, Lv leage is same lever as Dutch leuage (about what Marcel dont know it exist)

They suck and the worst - there really is like no competition since we have so few players and ice rinks, and absolutely no encouragement to even start playing hockey as kids. It always matters which part of the country you grow up in and if it's far from any big city, the possibility of actually doing any kind of sports at times is very slim. Especially for girls. If they move to another country, well, that's another story with possibly better ending regarding future in professional sports... It's remarkable we actually have a team playing in the Olympics and the World Championships, regularly.

Isn't that the same town Gudļevskis is from? I have never been there so I have no clue whether you (still) have an ice rink or not... Well, outdoor ice rinks DO work but this winter just doesn't. My hometown just had a new sports' hall built... without an ice rink although it was discussed before. So this is why we have shitload of guys and girls playing floorball and so few playing ice hockey or other sports where specific weather conditions/facilities are needed.

outside viladges has outside ice rinks, but now we have no so many kids, so ... many plays on friozen waters, good tracktores clean snow from frozen rivers and lakes
Piteå has ice rink, Boden ha sice rink, Happaranda has , Pajala has, Kirina has,
Piteå struggle sin Div III but they are close go back to allsvbenkan, Happanada Apslöven ''apsu lapas in latvian, dunno in english'' are in allsvenskan and might be in elitserien play offs soon, Boden same Div III , Kalax has team , but Kalax and Happaranda are better in bandy

Grandlund , Vatanen are good indeed, but seems from Fin dont come so e many drafted players anymore

Maybe not so much in numbers, but we've had at least one first round pick every year since 2010. Barkov even had the #1 race.

- Mikael Granlund, 9th (Minnesota, 2010)
- Joel Armia, 16th (Buffalo, 2011)
- Teuvo Teräväinen, 18th (Chicago, 2012)
- Olli Määttä, 22nd (Pittsburgh, 2012)
- Aleksander Barkov, 2nd (Florida, 2013)
- Rasmus Ristolainen, 8th (Buffalo, 2013)

Kärpät defenseman Ville Pokka is also a 2nd round pick by the New York Islanders in 2012 (34th). Raanta was undrafted though.

All but one of those first round picks currently play in North America (all of them will eventually play in the NHL I'm sure). Can't recall the amount of picks from 10 years back, but of course that's most likely the time when the goaltenders made a draft pick invasion

It's too bad about Peverley. Unfortunately this might be the same as Fischer's situation in that he's forced to retire early. This might be his first serious incident but he's struggled with poor heart conditions for a long time now and even underwent surgery for it last year. I'm glad he won a Cup before this happened - he worked a lot harder than most to make it to (and stay in) the NHL.

Peverley was one of the only Bruins I could stand, it was crazy what happened to him. Crazier still that apparently the first thing he asked after collapsingwas if he could finish the game. Just goes to show how much an NHL player puts on the line for their job.

Also Dallas managed to beat the best team in the league the very next day... Who knows maybe they'll get ignited by the incident and push into the playoffs. Although I imagine St Louis/Chicago would dust them off pretty easy in the first round. I'd say any team beating Anaheim is fair game after last year and the Sharks are perennially disappointing.

Tampa Bay Lightimgs 2-4 Montreal Canadians
Canadians remeber Gudlevsks in Olympics Habs will play hard in all canada name, and somehow I think Bolts are to week for play ffs

Pittsburg Peungunis 4-1 Columbus Blue Jackets
Dunno I think so

New Your Rangers 4-3 Phladelfia Flayers
NYR play way to good , might be lucky and take all cup

WESTERN CONFARENE

I like suprises, and Avs are not Avs what they were, so this is like (non will kill us if we lose type of games)

St Loius Blues 1-4 Chikago Black Hawks

B's won the President's Cup, so unlikely to hoist the real Cup given hsitory... but should get through the first round easily. 3rd in Goals per game, 2nd in Goals Allowed. lots of playoff experience, both in absolute victory - 2011 Cup Run - and in absolute failure - 2010 collapse against Philly will help.
