They never led in the game.
Remember that game against Slovakia wherein Mark Scheifele and other Canadian players dove all over the ice and eventually drew enough penalties to save face in a 6-3 win during which two of its players were kicked out of the game for dirty, illegal hits? Sure you do.
The diving throughout the game was so evident, so obvious even to an idiot, that disgusting Canada homer Ray Ferraro could come up with no better defense for its continued use by his cowardly home country than to praise it as “heady” because the refs were calling it. Of course, had it gone the other way, and the Slovaks were the ones doing it, we would have heard all about how dishonorable and disgusting these soft European pukes were, and how Good Canadian Boys would never stoop to such a level.
‘Twas the night ‘fore World Juniors, and all throughout Ufa
People were wondering just what Canada’s good for.
If you hate dirty hockey, or evil incarnate,
Know Canada’s the place where both things were started.
Their players were all sleeping, no books had they read,
Because the CHL’s bylaws said they must be rockheads.
Steve Spott in his ‘kerchief, dozed lightly at first,
Not even once realizing his team was the worst.
