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.

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.

Just for fun I did the caphit on team Canada, a whooping 150 million $ and now just dream about the quality of roster we would have, if it weren't for the stupid CBA...

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.

Scoff all you want fellas.  On the big ice your big team is toast.

Nerves for sure, he doesn't like the big stages but boy if I'm Seabrook, Lucic, Giroux or St. Louis I'd be seriously best nothing against Benn (great player), but he is a product of a superstar in the making in Seguin.

Some glaring oversights. I can only imagine what the press up there is ranting about at this very moment.

Also, if Croatia had qualified, Lucic could play, right? That would be fun to see.

Pretty sure Ryan Miller had a lot more to do with that than anything. Brodeur was awful in the first game vs the US. You better hope Miller can repeat that performance because that's the only shot Team USA has.

 

Edit: At medaling in general, not particularly against Canada
