    Well, I always like to see us win but perspective is needed. They have 30 million, half female approx. We have 300 million, half female. We should never lose in any sport with that population advantage. Now country's that can really be proud are the smaller ones like Sweden, Finland and Norway, which have a combined population smaller than Canada.

      Congratulations United States. The game was played to an almost empty arena in Swizerland. Women's hockey is alive in NA, dead in Europe

        I saw the empty seats when I were watching the games. What a shame. I would have loved to attend the games.

        Women's hockey is only alive & well in North America because the U.S. and Canada has been running the show for years.
        No one else can compete with them.
