Good game, from what I saw - they played their guts out - a soft goal and some lucky Russian breaks beat 'em. Damn. Oh well, a silver's still good - it's a frickin' CRIME for that Russian ass Smitov to get a medal after all the bullshit he pulled.
I don't think anyone has a problem with a thriving hockey market getting a team. I personally have a problem with said place being Hamilton, though. Aren't the Sabres and Maple Leafs enough for southern Ontario? Spread the wealth!
