Re. Canada 2 USA 0

The Oilers of the 80's, the Habs of the 50's-70's, the Canadian Women's Hockey Team.

When reflecting on the history of hockey, we place an emphasis on dynasties. As far as I'm concerned, the women's hockey team must be included in that category. 3x gold medal champions. How many teams/countries could pull that off? Very few. I think even the US Dream Team didn't pull that off.

This team is very special. While we all focus on the men, I hope we take a moment and recognize just how lucky we are to witness this legendary team in action.

One other thing: If I was running the Hockey Hall of Fame, Hailey Wickenheiser would be a shoo-in. Forget the 3-year waiting period. She's deserves to be there. Gretzky, Lemieux, Wickenheiser.
