Why Miika Kiprusoff Stayed Home

I wonder how John Muckler is feeling this morning? Thankfully, no one at the Battle of Ontario has hung themselves yet.

Canada defeated Italy 7-2 this morning, with Joe Sakic and Jarome Iginla picking up where they left off in Salt Lake City. The Swedes and Fins also won their games easily. As I write this, the Czech's are up 2-1 on the Germans in the 3rd. The Germans are hanging in, and are about to get a 5 on 3 powerplay.

What do you make of the German uniforms? Am I the only one who thinks they should have gone all out and just worn the retro Vancouver Canucks unis?

I agree. International Hockey has a more messed up rule system than Canadian Football.

The Slovaks looked awesome today. Big win over the hated Russians. I really like how all the Central Eurpean teams love sticking it to their former opressors. Now if only Tibet could field a soccer team and beat the Chinese.
