    1996 World Cup of Hockey

    We're still about a month away from the playoffs and there has been a lot of hostility in this forum recently...

    I found these videos on Youtube and got to relive some great memories. The finals were incredible IMO with a level of play we may never see again in the international game. The Montreal and Philly crowds in the finals were two of the loudest crowds I have ever heard.

    The Canadian roster was absolutely loaded. The Americans had a great team as well and the goaltending was phenomenal for both teams. The amount of talent on the ice and the laundry list of hall of famers and all-time greats was incredible.

    So, what are some of your favorite memories from the tournament and the finals?

    Here are some great highlights of the 3 game series between Canada and the USA in the finals

    The US team was definitely worthy of their victory in that series. It was incredibly hard fought. But I'd say that the 1988 Canada Cup or the 2002 Olympic gold medal game were better quality hockey. Lemieux and Gretzky were spectacular together in 1988 and Lemieux's comeback in 2002, together with the stellar play of Sakic and Iginla, among others, was unforgettable. Still, it was a good series and the US deserved the win in 96.

    I love this international battles whether it be clubs or countries going at it. They should do this more often. I want to see another one of these.

    Yeah I know what you mean. It reminded me of a lot of players and how dynamic they were. For example, Eric Lindros. The Hatchers were a joy to watch as well. Great stuff.
