Nobody ever accused the French of intellect.

Well...at least the tournament turned a bit more interesting,
(despite the glaring absence of the best players).

People still love their hockey like nothing else over here
(only Canadians could compete)
and are accustomed to success on the international level.
Fans sooo pissed off right now chuckle.gif

But the World Cup went to absolute shits last autumn,
and now it looks like we're in for a real fight just to stay
in the A Pool of the World Champs... 13.gif

Yikes.
An era is coming to an end..?
Finnish hockey's Golden Age about to expire?
Oi vei.
There'll be disintegration, severe recession, famine and dead-babies-in-the-street.

Chzechi up next, today. uhoh.gif
And they're a whole notch better than France...

It would do better in teh US if it didn't conflict with the NHL playoffs, I've known about it but it's not even televised here.

The NHL season is ridiculously much too long.

Kinda sad that the hockey world can't produce
a real World Championship tournament with
the sport's best players participating.

Now they're going to destroy the Olympic hockey
too.

And World Cup (at wrong end of season) every 12th
year is just not enough.

Crap. :(

Time for international hockey to review situation.

If they played this after the Stanley Cup it would be better off for everyone involved.
