Default Winter Olympics: Men's Hockey

Is there any other Olympic sport that puts more emphasis on winning Gold for their country? Not only is this the only sport that really matters in the winter Olympics(let's be honest, it's the only sport with mass appeal outside hockey countries) but for a couple of countries this could only be a successful Olympics if gold is won in this event. I've heard this about Canada and Russia. The only event I can think of in this magnitude is men's 100m.
Really, winning hockey is like winning the Winter Olympics

How so? If you think of it what other sport in a fans perspective is gaining as much attention?
With the summer Olympics sports are more spread out. Winter Olympics there is much more focus on hockey. I've never heard a country actually say this won't be a successful Olympics unless hockey is won

Think about this, what would be a successful Winter Olympics to you? Owning the podium or winning men's hockey? Personally Gold in men's hockey would be my pick.

What summer Olympic sport can you say the same thing?

That physcological bs is not going to get my answer. The question is what sport gets more attention than hockey? How does that have anything to do with a theory in reality? Just answer the question in YOUR opinion

2010 was a great Olympics for Canada but if they lost to the Americans it would of left a very bad taste in most people mouths despite tying most golds in a Winter Olympics.

It's a straight up question directed to you. Again reading Hume has nothing to do with your opinion. Just answer the question and quit trying to look like an intellect or leave this thread.
I'll ask again, which sport gets more attention than hockey and quit hiding behind that Hume bs

Do you ask every poster to read Hume before answering an opinion? If you do you must be a real jackass in life

Did you need to read Hume before coming up with that?
