To put it bluntly, were spoiled. Chris Chelios Jersey . We really are. There have been 36 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships and Canada has won gold 15 times. No country has won more. We are used to greatness. We expect it as Canadian hockey fans. In the 10 years from 1988 to 1997, led by the likes of Eric Lindros, Scott Niedermayer and Jarome Iginla, Canada won eight gold medals, including five straight. Then, from 2005 to 2009, Canada won another five straight with teams featuring future NHL All-Stars in Dion Phaneuf, Carey Price and Sidney Crosby. But heres the rub: since that gold medal triumph in 2009 won by a team coached by the Pat Quinn and including PK Subban, John Tavares and Evander Kane, Canada has not won the tournament again. Sure, Canada has medaled in three of those four years (silvers in 2010 and 2011 and a bronze in 2012,) but for a country where hockey is king, you dont celebrate being anything but the best. Is it time to worry? Yes, there have been droughts before. Upon the WJHCs inception in 1977, Canada didnt win gold until its sixth year. Granted, in those days, Canada typically sent that years Memorial Cup champions to the tournament, rather than the teams filled with the nations best junior players that were used to seeing now. After Canadas five straight triumphs ending in 1997, the country went seven years without a gold. Even players the calibre of Vincent Lecavalier, Roberto Luongo and Rick Nash couldnt bring home the title. The nation fretted then and that unease is starting to return with this current dearth of titles. Is that fair, though? Every December, many assume these young men will bring home the gold. But if Brent Sutters team doesnt hear "O Canada" on January 5th of next year, it will be another six-year drought. As a Canadian hockey fan, how concerning is it that Canada hasnt won world junior gold recently? As always, its Your! Call. Bob Probert Jersey . This is the final meeting of the season between these teams.? The Capitals were 5-4 winners in a shootout Oct. Matthew Lorito Jersey . None of them was better than playing with LeBron James again. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/david-booth-jersey/ . The 31-year-old, a two-time CFL lineman of the year, was among the most coveted free agents on the market. The Windsor, Ont., native will be especially important to a team that has lost veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo to retirement and is expected to go with the less experienced Troy Smith and Tanner Marsh this season.INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis tried everything to move up in the AFCs playoff pecking order. The Colts still came up short. Andrew Luck threw for 282 yards and one touchdown, Robert Mathis won the NFL sacks title and Adam Vinatieri became the seventh member of the NFLs 2,000-point club Sunday as the Colts routed Jacksonville 30-10 before watching their longshot hope of earning a first-round playoff bye vanish. Not that the Colts cared much about what was going on with the Bengals or Patriots. "Were in the playoffs and thats what matters," Luck said before knowing next weekends pairings. "We get to play at home, so it will be fun to not have to wait around to play." That will have to suffice for now after Indy handed the Jaguars (4-12) their third straight loss. An Indy win coupled with losses by New England and Cincinnati would have vaulted the Colts into the No. 2 spot. A loss by either would have put the Colts in the No. 3 spot. But the Bengals beat Baltimore 34-17, the Patriots beat Buffalo 34-20 and the Colts wound up with the No. 4 playoff seed. They will host Kansas City on Saturday afternoon. Coach Chuck Pagano promised his team would not watch the scoreboard, and it was clear they didnt pay attention until the game ended. Instead, the Colts were focused on keeping their momentum. "They always talk about December being the second most important month in football and we went out and went 4-1," Pagano said before the late afternoon results were in. "I have no idea, unless you guys have any updates, but we know we have a home game. So well wait to see what happens." Indy (11-5) is now playing its best football of the year. After alternating wins and losses for six straight weeks, the Colts rebounded with three straight routs. Theyve matched their longest winning streak of the season and their 11-win total from last season, appear rejuvenated on offence and defence and seem to be enjoying themselves mightily. Luck was 26 of 37 for 282 yards, shattering Cam Newtons record for yards passing (7,920) in a players first two seasons and becoming the first player in league history to top 8,000 yards during that span. Luck finished his second season with 8,196 yards. T.Y. Hilton caught 11 passes for 155 yards, both career highs. Mathis, who led the league in sacks most of the season, retook the lead by sacking Chad Henne once in each half to give him 19 1/2. A third sack was awarded to Jerrell Freeman, though itt appeared Mathis made the initial contact. Pavel Datsyuk Jersey. St. Louis Robert Quinn fell 1/2 sack short of Mathis, who joined Dwight Freeney as Indys only sacks champions. Vinatieri, long dubbed the best clutch kicker in league history, delivered another strong performance. The 41-year-old made three field goals and scored 12 points to move into fifth all-time with 2,006 points -- passing George Blanda (2,002) and Matt Stover (2,004). Indy was darn near perfect. Jacksonville, meanwhile, never seriously challenged the Colts. Henne finished 30 of 51 for 331 yards with one TD and one interception but couldnt get the Jaguars into the end zone until hooking up with Kerry Taylor on a 14-yard TD pass with 16 seconds left. Taylor caught eight passes for 75 yards. Maurice Jones-Drew, who is now likely to hit the free-agent market, ran 13 times for 39 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards. Jacksonvilles defence couldnt get Indys offence stopped consistently either -- until the Colts let off the gas pedal in the second half. "We didnt execute very well today," first-year coach Gus Bradley said. "Everybody took their turns. We missed some reads. We missed some route combinations. We missed tackles. We missed some assignments." It didnt take long to notice what was wrong. Donald Brown scored on a leaping 1-yard TD run, Trent Richardson followed that with a 2-yard TD run and Vinatieri booted a 23-yard field goal to make it 17-0 after one. Jacksonville looked like it would get back into the game after a 37-yard field goal and Henne got them into scoring position late in the first half. But Henne was picked off by Antoine Bethea, which set up Vinatieris milestone field goal. Luck opened the second half with a 7-yard TD pass to former college teammate Griff Whalen. That was good enough for the Colts. "Im glad were playing decent football going into the post-season," Luck said. "We know the post-seasons a whole different ball game and one-and-done. But to finish the regular season strong with these wins has been good." Notes: Indy lost starting cornerback Vontae Davis with a groin injury, defensive lineman Aubrayo Franklin with a knee injury and linebacker Bjoern Werner with an ankle injury during the first half. Pagano said all three would undergo further evaluations. ... Jacksonville finished the season with 1,260 rushing yards, a second straight single season low for the franchise.
