Who are you rooting for? Winter Olympics

Post by CFCNick on Fri Jan 10, 2014 2:01 am

Hey all, now we have the rosters announced and we're less than a month away from the games starting. Who are you going to cheer on in Sochi?

I'll be cheering on Canada and Mr Subban. Probably keep an eye in the Czech Rep too.

I always like Canada to do well, or atleast better then Russia and the USA.

I think Sweeden have a real shot at winning it this time. They have a strong allround roster and alot of players that player together in the NHL. Also being European they should adapt to the bigger ice quickly.

Team Canada for me! That said, I'm just looking forward to seeing some Olympic Hockey for the novelty factor (International teams, bigger rink, team mates pitted against one another etc!). Wonder who will come back injured and what effect that will have on their NHL team?

Well seeing as I bought myself this little number when I was in Toronto last month, I'll be cheering for Canada.

But will also cheer for any team with a Bruin on it. Go Finland!

I am in Canada throughout the Olympics so has to be Canada Smile has nothing to do with Mr Benn being on the team or anything  Rolling Eyes 

After that Russia for Silver (Mr Nichushkin) and Finland for Bronze (Mr Lehtonen who probably wont play).

Having a Finnish girlfriend, think I would be castrated if I said anyone other than the Finns. Sadly though, their roster doesn't look good enough, apart from in goal, where they have the best in the world even without Pekka Rinne!

Can see one of Sweden, Canada, Russia, USA winning gold, think it is too close. The Russians are weird, they will either win it all, or crash and burn in the group stages. It would he hilarious if it was the latter.

I suppose we have to look at Latvia after they topped us in qualifying.

I like the Finnish roster. I think they could steal a medal. I shall also be cheering for the Czech republic's grandfather team. Or as they will be known the 2014/15 Dallas Stars
