The World Cup of Hockey is coming up in just a couple months. I just can’t get into this tournament. Like yes I’m all about Canadian hockey and I want Canada to win because we’re all about hockey but this tournament sounds like a big beer league tournament for Pro’s! It really is if you think about it. Compare it to any hockey tournament you have ever played in as an adult.
You have your teams that a made up of guys who have played on that team for years and years.
Canada, United States, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic. All guys who have been together for years and years and there just out there to play some hockey.
Then you have team Europe and team North America.
Team Europe is pretty much the team that decided to enter into the tournament but then at the last minute a bunch of players couldn’t make it, so the team had to phone guys from other teams to come and play in the tournament with them. Since there’s 6 players on team Europe from Slovakia, I’m going to guess that there the guys who are calling up others.
Team North America is the team of young guys who don’t drink, play Junior hockey and the only goal is to win. Just like team North America all players are under the age of 23 and they’re all about the amazing tricks they can do with the puck, which makes us old guys say “C’Mon now! Just pass it”
I’m still going to watch the World Cup of Hockey but it’s a tournament not as big as the Olympics or the World Juniors! GO Canada Go
