    I couldn't agree more. There's a better time and place for an Olympic athlete to hold the flag than right after he unstraps his board. I'm not giving him a pass... but they should have thought that out a bit better.

    USA/Canada are comprised exclusively of "holy chit he's still alive?" and "this kid will be a great Saber/Coyote/Panther next year" kinda players.

    As long as we're on the subject:

    I distinctly remember the period where "professional athletes" were not allowed to participate in the Games.

    Disregarding the argument of whether the Eastern bloc countries actually used "professionals" in any sense of the word, how do you all feel about the later American acquiescence of allowing true professionals to compete in Olympic hockey and basketball?

    Was it a good thing or a bad thing, and why?

    My thoughts exactly! That about sums it up!

    I couldn’t believe some of those names, even though it really hasn’t been that long since they played in the NHL. I forgot some of these guys even existed!
