warning; the host is very biased against…uh, you’ll know.
In a few hours we’ll know who are champions.
Will it be Sweden, will it be Canada.
I’m no fool, so I’ve got money on Canada. How could they not have brought the dough to pay for the final, too? hee hee.
Just Kidding, I didn’t place a bet. But I’m thinking…
I haven’t seen the officials keep them in line, yet, so I don’t expect it to happen tonight. I’ll be pulling for the Swedes but don’t know enough about this group to trust they’ll be able to deal with the nastiness Canada will bring.
Here’s an interesting link to an article by Gann Matsuda in which Kings GM Dean Lombardi talks about why he wanted Teubert in this year’s draft. It’s quite interesting and I’d heard that Teubert had intimidated Filitov, but I hadn’t heard about the antics pre-game between the Russians and Canadians in the Moscow U-18′s.
It’s an interesting read and the Teubert stuff is near the bottom. It’s interesting that Lombardi seeks to mimic the Ducks style of being capable of playing any type of game – skilled or violent. At least I find it interesting that I’ve been pointing out that the Canada team plays the same system. But this blog page:
reveals how that strategy really works.
Have fun with the game and give me your best…
