It was a great championship, and will be played here next year.

Well done, Canada! ( Again!)

The Slovaks were the surprise team this year, as they won the US team and gave some headache to the Swedes as well. And alot of headache to the Finns as they beat us in the early rounds in the penalty shootout.

Yeah it was a great tournement!!!

The best game was the U.S. vs the Canadians, an instant classic!!!!

To be honest the Gold medal game was the worst out of the 3 for Canada in terms of excitment!!!

I got to go to a couple of games as I live only 30 mins away from the Scotiabank place!!! :)

Was it better seeing it live? My husband can't decide whether or not to go for tickets when it is here next year. Every Christmas/New Year from wherever it is played the World Juniors is watched here and the Spengler Cup - even when he is up at 4 in the morning to watch it!

The Canada vs Russia game was fairly tense until the end!

Slovakia should be proud of their performance.

It's well worth it!!!!! Yes the tickets were expensive, but it was great hockey.


You wouldn't beleive the "downer" I got when I started to watch the NHL again after the Tournement was over!!!!
