Show notes: - Qualifier games, Belarus v. Switzerland, Canada v. Germany - USA v. Switzerland - welcome to the international world Switzerland and Jonas Hiller - Slovakia v. Sweden - Slovakia upsets 2006 Gold Medalist - USA v. Finland - what a blowout! Bad coaching? - Canada v. Russia - Nash-Toews-Richards is the highest-scoring checking line of all time - Ovechkin v. Crosby? Horseshit - Canada's defense chips in for 7 points - Canada v. Slovakia - Canada has to realize Slovakia is a hockey power - Hossa, Gaborik, Demitra, Chara, Halak are all major names in hockey - Canada has to play the same game they played against Russia - Slovakia will try and play tight D and match Chara up against everyone - Canada will win either in a blowout or a 3-1 win with an empty net
- Czech Republic vs. Russia - AO rocks Jagr - Team Canada vs. USA - Thoughts on how Canada lost - I tell Crosby that he was terrible - Thoughts on how the US won - Kesler-Langenbrunner-Brown - Goaltending questions - Sadness :(

Cool! - Some thoughts on if the 2010 Olympics are the worst, as has been alleged - I was right, McGuire was wrong about Germany v. Finland - Peter Forsberg vs. Jaromir Jagr - 2014 Sochi thoughts and why the NHL better be there
- First show with the new theme, thanks Joé - I discuss some stupid shit Pierre McGuire said - Team Canada - thoughts on Marty Brodeur vs. Ryan Miller - Slovakia vs. Russia - Sweden vs. Belarus and I can't believe they didn't play Lundqvist after 2002 - The 4 big trades before the Olympic Freeze - I wax poetic about the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals
Note: I cocked up and said that JS Giguere came from Atlanta, not Anaheim, and sorta forgot part of the Finnish team. But I'm doing this to learn, too. So bite me.
