Bye-bye Senators, Flyers and Canucks?
The list of Olympic injuries continued to grow Wednesday with word Mattias Ohlund may have rib and leg injuries, and unconfirmed rumors Sami Salo was hurt against the U.S., too. Couple that with Simon Gagne's leg injury Wednesday, Peter Forsberg's fragile groin and Dominik Hasek's adductor injury and the recipe for Stanley Cup success for Vancouver, Philly and Ottawa just got a lot more complex. Fantasy implications are immense. Think Canucks where journeyman defender Nolan Baumgartner now may be the team's biggest threat on the blue line. Ray Emery cannot hold the fort in Ottawa and Philly was in a tailspin even before Gagne got hurt. The implications extend far beyond the guys with the injuries as each of those three teams will now have to alter the systems they use to compensate for those losses. Suddenly Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson might not get quite as many points, Mike Knuble won't have anyone to get him the puck and the top line in Vancouver might get even worse.

Olympic Hockey
Any truth to the rumor that Janet Jones had Finland, Sweden and Russia in a three-team parlay?

Olympic Hockey Losses -- Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda (insert topic here)
Sure, Dion Phaneuf, Sidney Crosby, Eric Staal and Jason Spezza might have energized Team Canada at the Olympics. Yes, maybe Todd Bertuzzi's sub-par play could have been anticipated. Heck, maybe Ryan Miller should have dressed and guarded the twine tent for the U.S. And there's that slim chance Wayne Gretzky could have picked a different assistant in Phoenix -- one with a brain and one without a penchant for what might be bookmaking -- to save his reputation and that of the team and the league. But then again, I could have had cereal this morning instead of a granola bar to save myself some indigestion later in the day. And I could have stopped at the ATM on the way to work instead of begging the cafeteria lady for a free coffee (with a plea that I'd pay her later this afternoon). The universal theme to everything here? Take some bloody responsibility, people. Team Canada was downright awful. Team U.S.A. made some stupid moves, too. Let's stop with the coulda, woulda, shoulda's and just move on. There's always next time and frankly, the four teams left play a lot more exciting hockey than our favorite Canadians and Americans. Suck it up and watch some damn fine hockey on Friday and Sunday!

Everybody In !!!
The Olympic ice hockey play has been great, but whoever designed the current format either has zero clue, or more likely, was told to simply screw the competition and get as many games as possible into the pool. After all this play, eight of 12 advance. Are you kidding me? With the reward for winning a pool game being a medal round game against Canada or the Czechs, and losing gets you a matchup against Switzerland. Man, Slovakia and Finland can have great tournaments worthy of a medal, then lose a close won on the second of back-to-back nights, and by losing one out of six games they're looking at a fifth place or worse finish. Anyone with foresight would've had six teams (or less) get in, and reward the top two for strong pool play with a bye. I think it's a no-brainer that at least two of the bottom four seeds advance tomorrow.

Team Canada Wakes Up...
Just in time...the round-robin only eliminated 4 teams, but it has given Team Canada time re-learn how to put the puck in the net...

more olympic rants
Probably could have gotten some nice odds on canada getting shutout twice. Anyways, who'd of thunk that the U.S. hockey team's problems would be something other than goaltending. PP was abysmal yesterday against the Swedes and DiPietro has been playing surprisingly well. Got to figure that if you allow just two goals a game it's enough to get a win or at worst a tie in international play. Also I've found myself watching much of the Olympic coverage, even though NBC is still whining about Kwan, Bode Miller and Ohno. Why don't they focus on the athletes that win instead of the high-profile ones that don't. Every year NBC bolloxes up the Olympic coverage and I'm still not sold on snowboarding. It's like we paid the IOC tons of money to get it into the games so we could have a higher medal count. On the other side it's good to see that we're catching up the rest of the world in speed skating. Hate to admit it, but I've been strangely drawn to curling the last few days, probably mainly because of the tv-friendly faces of the Johnson sisters of the U.S team, but it's kind of fun to watch when you learn the rules, but if they weren't cute I probably would just be making fun of curling like usual. I think one of the main things that draw me to the games are the fact that I don't get to see these sports too often and I think they're cool. Also there are way more sports in which you can die simply by doing them than there are not. Skiing, ski jumping, luge- how the hell do you do that stuff. Anyways. take care.
