Hi all, question out of left field, but what's the biggest, and preferably the most even Ice Hockey game to be played this weekend?
Ideally NHL, basically has to be big enough that anyone that can spell Internet can find the results within 1 min of searching.
If you're interested as to why, we have a footy tipping comp at work with one different sport a week as a bonus point.

Well, there's already been 2 Korean NHL players. One from the 80s and the most current one is Richard Park, who will be playing for the Vancouver Canucks next season. I guess you can say he's not representing Asian hockey as he was only born in Korea got his training in North American and plays on the American National Team.

2010 WJC: USA stuns Canada; 6-5 in OT
SASKATOON – John Carlson's goal at 4:31 of overtime lifted the United States to a thrilling 6-5 victory over Canada in the gold medal game of the 2010 IIHF World U20 Championship. It was the first U.S. gold since beating Canada in the 2004 tournament.
A younger, less talented U.S. squad withstood adversity, pressure on Canadian ice.
Canada, without many top age-eligible snipers, was done in by defensive lapses.
The key to the game was Canada's failure to promptly pull shaky goalie Jake Allen.
Watching the bronze medal game right now. Pretty boring after Sweden blitzed the Swiss for 4 goals in 8 minutes near the end of the first making it 5-0 . Game ended 11-4 (8-1 right now for me). Doesn't help the swedish commentators aren't exactly excited either haha.

The Canadians were too cocky going in... you could see it in their attitude and comments. Although Canadian, I think this loss might be for the best. Confidence is good, arrogance is not and is NOT a good reflection on Canadians.

This is also a wakeup call for Hockey Canada. Korea did win the Sudirman Cup in 2003 right? Canada's dominance in hockey is just about the same as China's in badminton.

Hopefully will be going to the Worlds myself later on in Germany. The opening game is Germany vs USA in the Schalke FC 60,000 capacity football stadium but sold out already I believe months ago ...

Gretzky's rookie card nabs record auction price
LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (AP) -- The Great One is still setting records.
Wayne Gretzky's NHL rookie card earned $94,163 at an online sports memorabilia auction Sunday. SCP Auctions says that's the highest price ever paid for a hockey card.
While a Gretzky rookie card is easy enough to find on eBay, it is rare to find one free of small flaws or imperfections. The card sold Sunday was graded 10, or mint condition, by Professional Sports Authenticator.
SCP calls it "arguably the most valuable modern trading card in existence."

Good thing I'm not in NA then . The only time I hear or read about hockey is when I go look for it . Although the Finnish newspapers (that I can "read" online) are full of it everyday ...
And truth be told I am far more interested in the international matches than any league ... time to start following the worlds then . Sweden trashed the US of A I read in the results on tv, albeit in the group stage still. Germany beat Russia on the opening day I think ...

Oh yeah! S-U-O-M-I!
Finland playing with only 5 NHL players on the roster (out of 25); Russia only 5 as well). One of the biggest European talents, Mikael Granlund scoring there (drafted 9th overall in 2010) (the new Koivu perhaps )
