2018 Olympics

Recommended Posts

I was just thinking about the upcoming Olympics and how sad it is with no NHL players going. But it dawned on me that that would be the ultimate target for Kim Jong Un to strike with his hydrogen bomb hes been testing in North Korea. Could this actually be part of the reason why the NHL isnt going? Could North Koreas fear mongering inspiring threats be a factor in Canada sending a team of 2nd / 3rd tier professionals to the greatest display of sport in the world?

FU NHL.......FU Kim Jong Un......your ruining 2 weeks of my winter. Trump should ram some nuclear tipped liberty in North Koreas Communist fudge holder.

But serious.....what are Canadas chances against Russia etc with no NHLers? Itd be Miracle On Ice Canada edition........interesting but not as entertaining as best on best......goalies alone will wreck us.

The only way this goes well is if Canadas B or C Team still wins gold. That would be a nice footnote to history.

But arent the aliens trying to save their little buddies the human race ? Or maybe were just roommates on earth and they live in higher dimensions but our nukes and pollution activities are finally becoming too much of a hassle so they have to evict us.

Anyway peace unto all species! and spacetimes. lol

Will Ovechkin tell the NFL to fuck off ant go play?  This is the real question.

OV has to find a way to tackle the NFL on this issue. Ants depend on it!

So are these Olympics basically gonna be an extended version of the World Juniors? If the KHL doesn't let guys go, who is even the fave to win? With no KHL, I can't even think of a country I'd say confidently will win a medal.

And while it's unintentional, Bettman probably looks smarter now too. No Russian team at the Olympics, meaning if NHL did happen to go this year, you could possibly wind up in a situation where Canada and/or USA gets beat by "Olympic Athletes from Russia". Or who knows if the Russian players would still want to go.

Brutal jerseys to go alongside a brutal Olympic roster. That weird silver leaf looks like something from a cereal box, it looks like one of those fake EA Sports jerseys. 

Not even. At least the EA Sports one has the Canadian flag on it.

My faves are the 02 ones:

And the red/white ones:

I'll never get why Canada has black in all their national team stuff, not just hockey, Olympics and other national events in general. It looks nice and all, but Canada is red and white.....

IMO, Sweden are clear favourites to win Mens Hockey Gold. I want Finland to win, but I don't think they will without NHL/KHL talent. Jokerit is a KHL team now, remember.

1. Sweden.

2. Czech Rep.

3. Finland

4. Canada

IMO, assuming that Team Russia doesn't compete.

Honestly this whole olympics thing, I think it's kinda interesting because it might give a guy or two a chance to impress some NHL scouts and get a potential talking to about a return to the NHL or to get there. 

I've only ever casually watched Olympic hockey so I never gave more than a shit about it so nothing's gonna really change for me.

For what it's worth, Kozun was looking some what interesting before we had any depth at all.
