2018 Winter Olympics in Worst Korea

Postby Troy McClure » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:07 am

Team rosters are being announced.

Nichushkin is one of several Russians notified today they are not allowed to participate in the Winter Olympics. It remains to be seen if this is doping related or if there was some other reason.

He's not doping, but he's a dope. Easy to confuse the two.

I figured out why Nichushkin is not a very good Russian player - his name doesn't end in a "V."

Neither does Ovechkin but he seems to do okay.

I am so happy that Val doesn't get to participate in the Olympics because we all know how much it means to Russian hockey players.
I hope they win the gold without him too!

Yes, even though Germany is participating I still support the "Olympic Athletes From Russia" as my official Team Schadenfreude.

I read that was intentional. Since their roster was thrown together last minute, they wanted to see if getting guys who have played together would help them avoid the mess you can get when guys take the ice with no chemistry.

If he's doping, he's doing it wrong, judging by his performance. lol

Was he banned by the IOC? Or was he just not invited by Team Russia? The latter makes more sense.

The IOC banned him, but I haven’t seen anything that makes me think Team Russia was going to give him a roster spot.

I could've told them it was a mistake to have Lindy Ruff coach Team USA:

After jumping out to a 2-0 lead, USA gave up two third period goals -- including a late equalizer -- and allowed Slovenia to force overtime. Then, the Americans surrendered the game-winner less than a minute into OT and were handed a shocking 3-2 loss.


Someone should also check the long-form birth certificate of the US goalie, Kari Americanman.

In related news, the heavy Gold favorite Russian team lost to Ladislav Nagy and the Slovakians 3-2 in regulation.

Watched the games. He had little to no chance on any of Slovenia's 3 goals. Team played like crap in front of him - particularly in the OT. 2 players went to one guy, leaving the back door wide open.

Having to worry about both Slovenians and Slovakians is way too confusing for me. I'm out.

I'm calling him Honkanen until he wins at least two Conn Smythes.

Wow. Scoring his first point of the tournament against South Korea. This guy is definitely Niedermayer part 2.
