    Default 2022 Olympic Men's Hockey Thread

    General banter thread to discuss the upcoming Olympics. The men's tournament is Feb 9 to 20.

    There is still a chance they don't even go which is scary. The NHL and the NHL Players’ Association have until Jan. 10 to determine whether the Covid-related disruptions to the schedule make going unfeasible. There have been few cancellations so far and the NHL seems determined to reschedule games only in the most drastic of circumstances. Several teams have had 5+ guys in protocol and have been forced to play. We know the NHL doesn't really want to go, but the players want to go and the NHL wants to make sure they get the players there. But if things get really bad Covid-wise, it could all come crashing down.

    That said...assuming we go...let's discuss!

    I forget if we had a fantasy league for the 2014 games...probably right?

    12 team H2H Most Cats Wins; Keep 6/winner keeps 7; G A PPP +/- SHP SOG HIT BLK PIM // W SV GAA SV% SHO

    I don't love the skate bottom of them. It looks like a maple syrup container.

    These jerseys would make Canada the villain in the made-for-tv hockey movie.

    I honestly really love black jerseys with bright accents. So the Black jersey I like, the White jersey I don't mind, the Red jersey...I dunno. But the leaf will never match the 2002 leaf. That jersey is unmatched.

    Marijuana-esque maple leaf.

    I love best on best tournaments but eff the Beijing olympics. Boycott them I say for all the trouble China causes domestically and in foreign policy.

    I know almost nobody wants to host olympics but I really hate that they’re in China right now.


    How good to people think Finland will be? They seem consistently forgotten among great hockey nations.
