Clearly,the better team won. Now get over it,please and look forward to 2014.
Usa was the best team throughout the whole olympics until the gold medal game. I'd say Canada got lucky.

No we weren't. You could argue Ryan Miller was the best player, but we weren't the best team. Canada was. If we didn't have Miller Canada would have smoked us in both games.

We had a great showing and I'm very proud of what we accomplished, but by no stretch were we the best team in the Olympics. Canada didn't get lucky. If anything we got lucky that Luongo didn't hang on to that rebound and Parise was in great position.

We weren't the best team coming in, but we were the best team coming into the gold medal game.

No we weren't. Just because we had the best record doesn't mean we were the best team. We had the hottest goalie, but not the best team. And Canada proved that they were the best. Even in the game we beat them in, they still worked us over.

We are a great team and have come a long way. But there was no point in that tournament where we were the best team.

But when it actually mattered the US team wasn't at it's best.
I think we were at out best. I think our best, just wasn't as good as your best.

The U.S. Team was really young. They played well but the maturity will show and hopefully it will be a repeat in Russia of being in the final.

Yes, I know but I was just trying to explain it to Sabresfan in a way he would understand;).
Yes it comes together now. ;)
