    That's the stage when it's always difficult to say in one word who will be the winner!!! Finland plays even in a more close hockey as Czech Republic, but these two teams have similar tactics during this Tournament, so I voted for Czech Republic only 'cos they've got a win over Russia!!! +1 for Czech Republic tomorrow!!!

    Czech Republic beware!! this veri good pleijer will put on a show which you will never forget. He will light up the arena with his explosive speed and dazzle the audience with his cunning skills.

    Gongrats to Czechs!

    The way I see it, Finland lost because of three things.
    1) Hnilicka played his best game in the tourney so far.
    2) We made the same mistake as the Russians. We didn't score those 2-3 goals more in the 1st period we could have scored.
    3) Our blueline plays on PP were horrible. We saw some of that in the game against Canada->two goals for Canada. Today 3-4 similar mistakes->1 goal for Czech R. and one penalty for Finland which lead to a goal for the Czechs.

    While we couldn't help the way Hnilicka played today, I am sure that without points 2) and 3) we would have won the game. Well, we just have pick up our game tomorrow.

    First of all thank you.

    Now to your post:
    1)The first goal was Hnilickas all the way-his best match was against Russia. Norena was better goalie today.
    2)Agreed
    3)Sorry to say that but your whole play was clueless/teethless(as we say)-canadien style without canadiens.

    Sorry to say that, its just my opinion and I want to be straight.
    Have you tried turning it off and on again?
    Better now?

    The first goal was all Hnilicka and he looked shaky in the first (like he has pretty much all through the tourney) but in the last two periods he played really well. Had he not played so well for two periods the game might have been different. Norrena played well too.

    We controlled the first, Czechs controlled the second, 3rd was pretty even. Czech R. didn't have many scoring chances on 5-on-5. Finland was physical and gave many hits. All-in-all it was a good game for us if you forget our troubles on PP and not taking advantage of scoring chances.

    Good luck to the Czechs in the finals!

    I personally think that the Czechs should not have reached even the semis. The fact that they play in the final is a disgrace for the tournament. Because of their poor and non-spectacular play, and because they deliberately lost to the US in the qualifying group. The latter is utterly disgraceful to my mind.

    Will cheer for Sweden tomorrow like mad.

    And Sweden lost to Slovakia 5-2. Slovakia lost to Canada. Man, U have no clue... If I would say something more, I would be rude. So end of story.

    The Czechs didn't purposely lose to the Americans.

    And the Czechs deserve, 100%, to be in the finals.

    But the rules are the same for everyone.

    Points about SWE-SVK and especially SVK-CAN I regard as irrelevant. Those were different stories, and I don't think anyone would question those teams' fair sportsmanship.

    As for the Czech's deliberate loss to the US - it was all around the press, at least in Russia, with interviews with the Czech players who didn't even deny the fact. And that was before the QF with Russia, I stress that.

    Trouble with the press is, it is usually partisanin it's storyline, Russia lost to the Czeck in the game that mattered, what happens in the qualifying is irrelevant, the purpose being to get into the next round, ofcourse if you have a chance to pick an easier opponent for yourself, well I think that would be called playing tactically.
    The fact remains, Czecs beat who it mattered to beat to reach the finals, ergo they deserve to be there, if you dont like it, then the format of the games should be changed, ie no gold medal game, six teams go forward into a mini league, play each other once, no ties allowed, winner takes all. That way you would have a true champion, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the rest.
    Jim, (still pissed off about another bronze medal game)

    You're free to interpret my words to your liking, although this isn't what I meant, and I'm sure you do understand that.
