    Alright! If the male Team USA wins the gold medal do you believe it would have the same impact as the Miracle on Ice? Or since that 1980 team was amateur and collegiate players and played against the "mighty" USSR team it wouldn't have the same impact.

    Wouldn't even be close to the same thing. Those Russians were professionals who hadn't lost a game in 20 years. We were college kids.

    I don't think anything can compare to that 1980 Gold Medal victory.

    No, it would even be close, because of the reasons Millz said. Now the team is expected to do well and compete. They are all NHL players after all. I think the country would be fired up if we won gold, but I don't think it would do much as far as making the sport more popular here.

    Yeah it would definitely be a big deal because of how stacked Canada and Russia are but we have pro's on our team.

    It would be awesome to win but it wouldn't be a miracle...

    I expect us to be competitive...I'd love to get the bronze.
