I mentioned this in a previous thread and thought it could use a thread of it's own. (Mods feel free to lock or close if I'm getting ahead of myself!)
Is anyone else extremely excited for the Olympics but dreading them as a Red Wings fan? It is likely that we could have 8 players in the tournament and with our injury luck the last few seasons this really makes me nervous. There's a lot of hockey to be played this season and I'm praying injuries don't become a major factor at the end of the season. Does anyone else feel the same way as I do? Who on our roster do you think will be at the games representing their country?
Sweden: Franzen, Zetterberg, Alfredsson, Kronwall, Ericsson
Czech Republic: Kindl
USA: Howard (backup)
