    In fact in that part of the world among hockey fans, I would think USA is the worst draw of the big four...CAN always has a target on their back no matter who they play

    Nothing to do with paid admission. Comment on the surface is about six periods of hockey being playing on it before your team even takes the ice. Oh and believe me, not all Olympic venues are created equal. Could be a crappy locker room, cramped bench, etc.

    My comment was a reply to the 'odd to be exiled' comment earlier...and since these were purpose built facilities, i very much doubt they are too dissimilar...

    ...anyway...QF played out as expected tho CAN gave me a good scare...they will need to raise their game in a big way to get past the USA...

    I should retract that statement...the small rink is temporary so likely does have less lavish facilities...still someone has to play there...why not the US?

    Gotta be careful...Crosby could be wearing the 'choke' tag too depending how this all shakes out...not as confident on Canada's chances anymore....

    Dream semifinal matchups (well, except if you are a fan of Team Russia).
