What would Christmas and New Year's be without the World Junior Hockey tournament. I had to race home from the office today so I could catch Canada vs Finland. After a slow start, Canada pulled away for a 4-0 victory.
I am off to Ontario for meetings tomorrow so I am not sure if I will be able to catch the final on Thursday.
At the start of the tournament all of the experts were predicting that it would be tough for Canada to repeat as Gold Medal winners. It would be great to see them prove these pundits wrong.
If anything, no matter what happens in the final on Thursday, Brent Sutter will be hailed as Canada's most successful Jr. coach ever. Good for him. Nothing better than seeing the legacy of the Sutter family continue.
