Toews in, Kane out

Patrick Kane had -2 points yesterday in the game against Czech republic where they lost 3:4 and they are out compared to his team mate captain Jonathan Toews who scored two goals in the last game and his Team Canada will meet Russia in the semifinals of WHC 2016. 

If Kane had better season in the jersey of Chicago Blackhawks, Toews does not let anyone rain on his parade during World Cup and Canadian team is unstoppable machine without one break or lost. Sidney Crosby said recently about Toews is "He has that ability and that knack to step up in big games." Jonathan Toews sees a game with Russians in positive light: There is a good rivalry with the Russians and it's going to be a good.

World Cup: Canada - Team Europe 4:1

Canadian squad of Maple Leaf is in the semifinals and they will face either Russia or Team America. Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews secured the top spot in Group A with his two goals, when Canada trashed Team Europe 4:1 yesterday. If they lost the game against USA in preparation, there is still zero lost game in World Cup and it is all what matters.

Two captains started the raid of Team Europe with the first two goals - Sidney Crosby's wrap around goal at 4:01 and Jonathan Toews at 19:05. His buddy from the Hawks Marian Hossa who rented him his Downtown Condo where Tazer liked to fall asleep on the smellie throne or in the bath tube under the window when he was drunk like a fish, took his revenge in the second period when he attacked his other team mate Corey Crawford in the rival net from the left circle and the puck said Hello on his journey behind Crawfie's backs - the first goal of Team Europe at 4:38. The banter shuttle bus between two team mates did not stop and Toews as a copycat of Marian Hossa  increased score for his country in the end of the second period, 3:1, also firing from the left circle. Still better to see nice action by Crosby's opener how he circled around the net and shoveled it between Halak's poles. Still better than beating around the bush:]] Funny enough Crosby has more assists than Tiews but Toews sent a pass on Logan Couture's stick in the third period  and they created final result 4:1.

I am not a star anymore, Jagr said

Jaromir Jagr Veronika Nettle

Jaromir Jagr was mentioned by Team Canada many times, he was missed and mentioned by younger player from San Jose NHL franchise as a star, but when he appeared at Prague airport, he said to iSport reporter: I am not a star anymore, buddy.

He was watching a game with winning 6:0 streak for Canada, against Czech republic, in the night, couple of hours before his departure to USA. Maybe he was tired, maybe he was disappointed. There are different faces of national squads compared to famous goal in Nagano against Canada. NHLers are on the roster of national teams, the squads are stronger and the athletes are better prepared, in some case, Czech players are weaker. Jagr is one who is hard working athlete in any aspect, he is 45 years old, works hard like any 20 years old and he is still living legend. He said he cannot help in World cup and he knows what he needs to prepare for next demanding NHL season. My opinion - Czech team needs more mini Jagrs with work ethic, but with better team spirit, something what they miss recently. I do not miss Jagr's new horror frock, or say his pole dancer's wannabe horror frock based on chavvy mix of sweatpants with designer bag and statement jewelry..chav if you copy it as a legend aka daddy and kid baby girl.
