I was thinking about watching, then I learned hockey was no longer an event.

Hockey is an event, just no NHL players... I was looking forward to a 3rd straight Hockey gold.

Huh?

I can't wait for hockey. Going to be a bunch of USA guys who never thought they ever get a shot. And since the KHL will be on the Russia Team is could be a USA underdogs vs Russia NHLers

I think Russia may walk away with it ... Maybe. It's not the first time they have had the best team on paper and failed. I would say Canada is North America's best shot... Going to be tough. Even the European countries look stronger.

There's a few former NHLers on The Russian roster. They are the team to beat though, with a few star names like Kovalchuk, Datsyuk, Shipachov on their roster.

For the first time since I started watching the Olympics (1994), I won't be watching men's hockey. It was crushing to see the NHL go through with the plan of keeping players out the Olympics. Even though Canada has dominated in the Olympics, it was still thrilling to watch the top teams play each other. Who cares now? Men's ice hockey joins men's soccer as the two events in the Olympics which don't feature the best players. Nobody cares about men's soccer in the Olympics, and I can't see why anyone would care about men's hockey now.

I care about as much as I have in the past - which is just enough to watch. It's not like I'm taking a huge chunk out of my life to watch a few hockey games. It'll still be fun to see the teams that are actually participating duke it out and for once it's difficult to tell which team is a favorite. Despite being the Olympics, it's still just a game. Not gonna lose sleep over it.

So all the penalties Canada is taking are all good calls.. not denying that... But the refs have called one American penalty when there should have been 2 absolutely blatent interference call and one missed high stick... They say they are eagle eying Canada you you would think the Refs would have caught those... Oh well.

We got gold in mixed curling though. It's inaugural showing I think too.
