I love myself I think I'm grand -
And in the show I hold my hand -
I put my arm around my waist -
And when I'm fresh I slap my face-
And, by the way, 'speaking of parrots' uhhem, good job there, you did it perfectly, polly, are you an amazon, or a lower slobovian breed.

that's right, but the fact is that the u.s. team were touted as the favourite going into this tournament,
doesn't have anything to do with facts, because no one knows the facts, even after a winner is declared,
still doesn't prove which team was the best, only shows who won.
And in the NHL now, since lockout, because of cap, players are constantly moving around, so even those
teams don't come out each and every year with same team. eg. chicago, won the cup, but have to dismantle
because of cap problems, so I guess the idea is, build, go for the cup, then dismantle and build again.
exception could be Canucks, IF they happened to go the distance and win the cup, they are probably in
the best position of any team at the top, as they have many key players signed, who could remain with
Schneider probably would have to go, he is not a back-up, trying to build his own career now, and he is
doing a good job, so he would probably be traded, but we have 'Lak' in manitoba who seems to be a great
prospect, who could step up.
