and another 2004 World Junior Hockey Championship thread

drag stuff from that other thread into this one and you will regret if it means me having to whine to every admin around for the next 4 years

A nice graphic from the CBC site!



Congratulations to USA Hockey. Way to represent the star and stripes! It is really too bad I have to go to CBC.CA to find decent coverage!



Parise was named the MVP of the tourney! and the next year's tourney to be held in Grand Forks, ND....Parise's home ice right now (University of North Dakota).

So Salome,

Just to clarify... are you suggesting that proper hockey is Field Hockey? The bastard son of Lacrosse?

*Cries foul

I think this constitutes carry-over from the other thread!


Viva lacrosse!

Yes, I can't believe I started a thread which ended up like that! Please don't blame me. It wasn't my fault!

By the way, Chiz - not to be a "drag", but you still haven't replied to my reply in the playoff thread you dug up the other day! tsk, tsk.

Oh, I forgot to add this in the other thread (so it's not actually any carry over, technically)...

The only real bright spot in this game for me was the play of American player Ryan Kesler, who is owned by the Canucks. It should be a great boost for him to have scored the game tying goal. Hopefully, he does things like that for Vancouver in the near future, as well.

When I first read "Grand Forks" in a recent article for next year's World Juniors, I immediately thought it was Grand Forks, BC! That would have been cool.

I can't believe how many people are down on team Canada for having such a "bad" tournament for only winning a silver medal. Coming into today's final, Canada outscored all opponents 32-5! At the end of it all, they've outscored everyone 35-9. Dominating to say the least. Not taking anything away from the US, but they got two lucky goals - one of which was just freakish - and still people here complain? This country needs a new religion other than hockey, methinks. Ah, but I love it.

I don't really want to "drag" anything from the last topic, but what exactly is "proper hockey"?

I think he means field hockey. It certainly is more "proper"... in the teetotaler sense of the word at least.

I don't think there's anything proper about field hockey...proper hockey to me is ice hockey!

Well, yes, but you're Canadian. Field hockey is a much older sport, so it did come first. I don't know if that makes it proper though. I prefer ice hockey. The two games are totally different. The only similarity is both involve sticks, a goal, and an object to shoot with the stick into the goal.
