Why do they dominate hockey?

Is there any hope for us mutts? We've taken more Stanley cups of course, but they have humiliated us on the ice at the IIHF 13x over.

Also, fuck Canada.

    Here's what it's like to be an American hockey fan:

    Imagine you're in Japan, and you're watching a Japan-based basketball game. Every single player on the basketball court is black, very black, and clearly from Africa. Wide noses, big lips, long dreadlocks. All of them.
    They hit long 3's, do 360 dunks and generally light it up and put on a show.
    The Japanese man beside you says "Ha! See? I told you that the Japanese were amazing basketball players!"

    You think to yourself "The players in the game are clearly not Japanese, and yet this man pretends that they are because they're being paid to play in Japan. He actually believes that Africans playing basketball in Japan makes Japan good at basketball."

    and now you understand what it's like to be an American "hockey fan" who cheers for "American" teams and believes that it's an "American win" when Colorado wins the Stanley Cup.

          the fact he only played a quarter of the season is prove enough he did not live up to the hype
          even dahlin played 82 for the same team

        Kane was that. Now they have Matthews. Eiserman on the way. A bit down from Superstar level is Gaudreau and Eichel but without injuries Eichel would've been that Superstar level talent. US is easily second to Canada when it comes to top talent in the NHL

    because they're literally the only people who play it

    If it snowed in Africa Blacks would take over the NHL

          The two main paths to the NHL in North America are the CHL and NCAA. The NCAA considers the CHL a professional junior league and won't allow CHL players to play in the NCAA system. So if you have the skills to get a hockey scholarship, but aren't likely to make a long career out of hockey, then you might stay out of the CHL and go for the American college system so you have a diploma to fall back on.

    For people who don't understand. Canadian teams haven't won the Stanley Cup for such a long time that Canadian hockey fans need a VPN and create a thread like this for some cathartic relief.

        Stop coping. There is no way to take Canadian incompetence out of the equation. Whichever way you spin the story.
