In seriousness, what was really cool is he was genuinely smiling and happy.  Patting the kids on their heads, etc.  What a great sportsman.

Just a real fan of the sport. Very cool. Gotta wonder if seeing those kids win reminded him of the kids on the 1980 team?

Great play by USA. No one can say they don't deserve it.

I wonder how much that matters to him, he won other gold medals.  Either way it was awesome to see him.  I heard Craig Ramsay tweeted a congrats to team USA

Nice gallery.  26CB, thanks for all of your links throughout the tournament.  It made it much easier to watch games--the NHL.com front page had no links, or dead links, or links to links to nothing, every time I checked.

You're more than welcome, glad to share the info. What a great tournament for Sabre fans to salve the wounds of the Lockout. The future looks bright.

Congrats team U.S.A.  Very deserving of the win as they really gelled into a ' team ' over the course of this tournament. Based on what I saw they were the most balanced team from goalie out. Great defence, great goaltending and timely clutch scoring. I'm excited about the experience and exposure to playing in this tournament that our picks ( all of them )  have gained here. Hopefully some of that rubs off and translates to the N.H.L. for these guys.

The Hockey News: Final thoughts on 2013 WJC:

http://www.thehockey..._daily_20130111

The most disappointing team at the WJC came from Finland, where a stacked lineup sputtered in the round robin and had to settle for routing teams in the relegation round instead of playing for a medal. After the Finns' final game, coach Harri Lindell revealed that a stomach flu had gone through the team, while also admitting that he had trouble finding the right linemates for emerging superstar Sasha Barkov. The 2013 prospect never had the same two wingers twice at the tourney, though he did have success when paired with Buffalo Sabres first-rounder Joel Armia.

Finally, with an eye on the little guy, it was too bad to see Latvia relegated when their best player, Buffalo Sabres first-rounder Zemgus Girgensons, was kept in the American League for duty with the Rochester Americans
