- The Canadian and American women put on a great game in the women's gold medal game. And hats off to the great Canadian crowd. It was great to see such a crowd so excited about the female game. And kudos to them for their classy salute to the American ladies. We made be rivals, but that is the proper way to salute great hockey. Yeah, I'm talking to you Ryan Lambert.
- Shannon Szabados was amazing in net. Can we borrow her for the men's game?
- Marie Philip Poulin is the future of women's hockey. Her shot is something else.
- Before the game CTV aired footage of Team USA's Angela Ruggeiro, who might be the greatest female player ever, talking about her favorite sound - the silence of the Canadian crowd when USA scores a goal. Team Canada's response - don't let them score.
- I only saw the last half of the third period and the OT but the victorious Finns and Swedes put on a good show in the bronze medal game.
- Jacques Rogge was greatly irresponsible in the timing of his comments about the future of women's hockey. Prior to the gold medal game he found it necessary to put the future of the sport in doubt. You know these comments would not have sat well with the Canadian or American women's team, who embrace their roles as ambassadors of the sport.
