Ice Hockey - Day 7 - Switzerland v Canada

It's been an up and down Olympics for Team Canada forward Jarome Iginla, not unlike his season with the Calgary Flames. Some pretty good highs, and some pretty invisible periods which you can classify as lows. And after a 5-3 win loss to Team USA on Sunday night, I'm still not sure what to make of Jarome Iginla, Team Canada Edition.

While most Canadians were still dwelling on what would've been the most painless way to kill themselves had Sidney Crosby not pulled it out in the shootout, the Russian team was losing in the very own shootout against Slovakia. Bonus point for local hero Pavol Demitra, the best Pavol with an "o" in Canucks` history, scoring the shootout winner (okay, so Pavol isn't quite a local hero, spending much of his time here alternating between being overpaid, underachieving or injured, quite a resume, one that he'll surely be taking to another team next year, but Canucks fans shouldn't be picky).
