It's time - to predict 2014 Team Canada

Rate this topic

140 posts in this topic

Updated earlier predictions

Tavares - Crosby - Stamkos
St. Louis - Toews - Giroux
Nash - Bergeron - Richards
Lucic - Getzlaf - Perry

Doughty - Weber
Keith - Seabrook
Bouwmeester - Pietrangelo

outside D: Vlasic over Subban

outside O: St. Louis over Hall, Benn and Seguin


Luongo
Price
Crawford

I think Letang has played too much on the offensive side in order to be trusted on the bigger ice. Vlasic is a stable, non maintenance kind of guy so if any injuries happen, he should be in.

3 + 4 line are obviously the grind it out, shutdown lines with physicality and intimidation in form of Lucic.

My god I'm excited to see this roster play.

Don't even care which people skate because they're all amazing.

GO CANADA

I'm predicting a repeat that shocks everyone because of how unlikely a repeat is.

Discussion over selection of Pernell Karl Subban>>>>Discussion over selection of Bobby Ryan.

In my opinion, I think it's unlikely that PK makes it.

Can't believe Stevie left St. Louis home again. That's gotta cause a rift in Tampa. Also, Marleau and Carter over Giroux is a bit nuts to me. Hamhuis being on the team is a question mark too.

How could I forget that, not having G iroux on the roster is a headscratcher. Kunitz is only on the team thanks to Cindy

Haha, Canada's roster decisions are always a three ringed circus. They have to create a roster that satisfied public opinion. Imagine if the Canadians left off their best scorer and offensive d-man in the name of roster cohesion? The masses would festoon the Houses of Parliament with Stevie Y's entrails. They're going to put together an all-star team just so everybody can drool over how nice their roster looks, and then the Americans are going to skate them into the ground.

Edit: I was typing this before the roster was released. Haha, I love it. We're going to murder this team. They're big, but they won't skate for s***. And, as expected the roster is full of superstars who are popular with the fans but not having particularly great years.

another head scratcher is hamhuis?!?

Hamhuis over Seabrook is just wow. Also I'm surprised that Lucic hasn't made it, the guy is a rugged physical mammoth, Lucic - Getzlaf - Perry would have been a nightmare to play against.

s***, we split with you in Vancouver on North American ice (which clearly favored the bigger team compared to the faster one). On international ice your boys are going to get pretty tired chasing around guys who can actually skate. Huge mistake taking too many of Benn, Carter, Getz, Perry, Nash, Marleau, etc. Should have stuck with guys like Couture, Giroux, etc.

Your boys are going to be gassed.

That's what all you guys said last time too, right before we beat you once and took you to overtime the second time around. Laugh all you want, but you guys won on North American ice in 2010. On international ice you're screwed because everybody in Canada still believes that bigger is better.
