It's truly the best and biggest championship in the world. It's all in the meaning and purpose, my friend. The world juniors don't even compare IMO.
It's like the FIFA under 20 tourny. Like some of those games were really entertaining, but it doesn't even compare to the real FIFA world cup. not even close.
Oh I can't dispute the fact that the Olympics are on a whole other level in terms of pure spectacle and crowd recognition.....
.... I guess I'm just talking about it from a pure hockey standpoint. I just enjoyed those games more. And the drama with Eberle's heroics were just INSANE.
Last night's final was spectacular though to be sure.
