9% need to get their head checked... Anyway, if Canada wins again can we please make sure to boo Crosby in the first home game back again? :face:

Cup. I cheered when Crosby scored the gold medal-winning goal...but only because it was him that scored it.

It was kind of fun booing Crosby during the Olympics. I felt the hatred like everyone else gets to do for a short period of time. I was pissed when he scored that GWG, I cursed his name for a good few minutes.

Once the Olympics were over he returned to my good graces though haha.

I'm more interested to see if the same excuses made for Bylsma coaching the Pens will be made for him coaching team USA. Though I wouldn't be surprised if team USA sucked and Byslma got signed to coach team USA for life.



Maybe he'll learn something in the process.

I root for the Pens throughout the year, every year. Whereas I root for team USA for only a couple of weeks every 4 years. As cool as a gold medal for USA would be, the Pens come first.

Considering Disco is coaching both, my expectations aren't terribly high. Though Team USA might do well because the players wouldn't be used to him.

I think Bylsma is absolutely perfect for the US personnel and the Olympic tournament.

I'm sure Bylsma's system is great on an olympic size rink :pop:

Can't wait to see him utilizing 40-foot stretch passes and wondering what puck possession means. He was likely the worst decision ever by the Americans. He has zero experience of world championships as well. Just a terrible hire and I wouldn't be too surprised if USA doesn't get to the semifinals - or even quarterfinals unless his "let's get to our game" is something else in Sochi. :scared: His system really doesn't transfer well into a larger ice surface.

Obvious answer to the survey is 2, of course the Stanley Cup is more important. :fist:

John Shannon ‏@JSportsnet 2m Hockey Canada will also put out invitations to orientation camp tomorrow...camp is in Calgary, last week in August.

I'm pulling for Marc Andre Fleury to be picked. Keep the faith flower.
It would totally awesome if a side benefit of GM Ray Shero and Coach Blysma being a huge part of the USA olympic movement to have the camp for the 2014 team held at the Consol. :!:

I hope the Penguins win the Cup and Crosby or Malkin win the gold. I like the Penguins' hockey players. I suppose the AmeriPens winning would be fine too. And there will be more Penguins employees involved with Team USA than any other country. Hmm. Either way, I would trade 100 gold medals to Al Qaeda Hockey for one Cup.

I couldn't care less who wins the gold medal. 1980 was a cool story, but it doesn't really mean anything these days.

If it were amateurs, I think I would feel differently. Now it's an all star game played by mostly millionaires.

If we are being all inclusive, I would prefer a Team USA World Cup win to either of the hockey related ones.

But in the hockey world, I want a Pens cup win.

The Cup. Might take a little of the sting off from coming up empty the past few years.
