All we can do for now is look ahead to the Olympics. Women start on Feb 13th and the men on the 16th

Allen sucked that game and should've been pulled earlier, it never should've went to OT. Giving up a huge rebound right to the slot on a weak blue-line dump in wrister....sad.
That states team was an unreal fast bunch of kids though.

Kinda bummed that I didn't win any of the huge 50/50 draws that they had....I guess the total pot for the last game was something like $290k!!!!

This team deserves better support than what is being given here.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and MY opinion, is you don't deserve to be called True Canadian Fans.
thats just the way it is here. and it won't change. Gold is expected every year, anything less is considered a loss.

I completely understand your viewpoint and couldn't agree with you more. I've always phrased it "losing the gold" rather than winning the silver. You never win a silver medal. They could have all gone home the day before and defaulted, and the results would have been the same. Sound harsh? Maybe. It's called reality, and it's what makes winning the gold ever-so-sweet. Losing the gold, quite simply, sucks. Ask anyone on that team.

I'm proud of my team. They fought well, they fought long, but came up short in the end. Better luck next year!
