Canada did not do as well as it did in Vancouver, but I'm still proud of our athletes's performance, especially in hockey. As most of you know, Canada won the gold in both the Women's and Men's hockey. Of course, the Women's final ended up a comeback thriller for Canada after trailing the States 2-0. As for the Men's, Canada dominated over Sweden in their final, winning the game 3-0. I watched Hockeycentral today. The guys were saying the men's squad was the most talented hockey team they have ever seen. I quite agree. There were several players that impressed me. Nashville's Shea Weber has a wicked slap shot. He scored a total of three goals during the tournament. Jeff Carter got a hat-trick against Austria. Drew Doughty scored the winning goal in overtime against Finland in Canada's final round-robin game. Jonathan Toews was fantastic as we expected, scoring the winning goal in the Gold Medal game. Sidney Crosby wasn't as dominate offensively during the tournament. Crosby scored just one goal, but it was a memorial goal. Crosby put Team Canada up 2-0 in the Gold Medal match on a break away in the second period as he fooled Hendrik Lundqvist with a stellar move and slid the puck in the bottom left hand side of the net. Canadian goalie, Carey Price proved me wrong. I was a little concerned about Canada's goal tending going into the tournament. I was concerned even more every time the team announced that Price was going to be in goal the day before each of Team Canada's games, with good reason. Price has not played that well for the Montreal Canadiens this season. In fact, he's been mediocre. Thankfully, Price stepped up and played the best hockey of his life during the tournament. Price also recorded a few shut-outs and led the tournament in save percentage. As I watched the last period of Gold Medal game yesterday, I couldn't help, but wonder. How dominate team Canada would've been if they had a healthy Steven Stamkos on the roster?

This millennium we have started to make gains in international athletics. And I think it's great that we don't expect our athletes to just show up but to win. Glad I was getting sick of watching Greg Joys silver medal during the National Anthem when channels signed off

I forgot all about Canadian Channel sign offs when they would feature Joy near the end of them.
