Olympic Break Nearly Over

Finland will play Sweden for the gold medal tomorrow. Hard to believe that neither Canada nor the United States will even sniff a bronze medal. Not enough young fresh legs for either side when playing on the larger rinks.

As a Blue Jackets fan, I am not sure that I wanted to see Rick Nash play given his rash of injuries this season. I would never want to stop someone from representing his country, but Nash did not perform well, scoring no goals, for Team Canada. I imagine that Gretzky must have second thoughts about passing over young stars like Crosby and Cheechoo and seeing little offense punch from the veterans. We'll see how things get shaken up for the next Olympiad.
