Olympic Hockey-2010

Now that the olympic season is almost over, let's look back at how the Ducks players did. As you guys probably know, 9 Anaheim Ducks players were in the 2010 olympic games.

Team Canada: Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, and Scott Niedermeyer

Team USA: Bobby Ryan and Ryan Whitney

Team Finland: Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu

Team Switzerland: Jonas Hiller and Luca Sbisa

Right now, I am watching the Men's Gold Medal Game USA vs. Canada. Ryan Miller and Roberto Luongo are in net. Hopefully you guys are all watching.

The Ducks are still teammates even though they are playing for different countries. For example, Teemu and Bobby.

There are even some good tweets going around:
@drosennhl Ryan and Hiller just had an exchange and Ryan ended it by tapping Hiller on the chest. They're still teammates, folks.

But it's always good to see two of your favorite players in an olympic hockey brawl.
When you're a Ducks fan, it is hard to decide which team to cheer for considering you have four countries to choose from. But, considering the gold medal game is Canada vs. USA, it will be hard to be dissapointed.


Now to Team Finland. Many people are saying this will be Teemu's last olympics and last season. We all are sad to hear this. But, I am glad that his team was able to get the bronze medal.

Hiller, sadly did not win any medals, along with Sbisa. Yet, they both played really well and Bob Murray was impressed by Sbisa's performance.

So overall, olympic hockey was really intense this year. I am really looking forward to men's olympic hockey in 2014 in Russia.
