A fine electric shaver for Player of the Game, lol.

I was wondering, do the NCAA players have to give that back?

That's what happens when you're sponsored by Remington Rand.

That's a great question. I wonder what the rules are around that. Of course since most of them are so young maybe they can hand off to their dads. 😀

I'm 99% sure they don't. Look at college football "gifts" to players in bowl games. I think there is like a $500 limit or something.

....................and Canada just sucks this year.

Took a shootout to beat a Swiss team the US pummeled 10-1, and is down 2-1 to Sweden.

(Granted the US lost to Sweden, I just like saying Canada sucks)

Looks like we are indeed playing the Czechs.

*Cue the chess puns

We all know how John Winger feels about going up against the Czechs.

And if we should get to the play the Russians Russell Ziskey has his own opinion about them.

I like not having to face Canada or Sweden until a Medal is on the line (or host Finland)...obviously Russia won't be easy...but the bracket could be worse...

Make that three.

Canada has pretty much all Major Junior players again, yes? Hey Don, you might want to take American development (i.e. NCAA) a little more seriously over there.

I don't think the NHL network is going to show the canada and Finland game which is disappointing.

I think most of us appreciate the effect Soviet and European style of play had on North American hockey. Back in the 60s and 70s, what international play was there outside the WJC and Olympics? I'm just wondering how much of a role WJC and other play at that level had on the Soviet/European influence.

Delayed tape sometime. There are alternatives.

My listings show all 4 semis on, three live, and the Sweden v. Slovakia game delayed to 3:30 ET or so.
