Canada vs. the World.

 

They didn't figure either team would medal - makes sense since these folks were deemed not good enough for the ACTUAL Olympics.

Snubs start the first year of Mite Travel Hockey and it continues on through the NHL and the Olympic Teams.  Sometimes it's hockey related, often times it isn't.  But it is what it is.  Just like the munchkins hear, there's only a limited number of spots and everyone can't make the team.

Maybe I am a bit biased (oh well) but I think all of Abdelkader, Dekeyser, Nyquist and Tatar should have made their respected teams...

Except Tatar is playing for Slovakia in the real Olympics.

HAHA, Marc-Andre Fleury was snubbed from the snub team, too. I love it.

The Hockey News has been given strict orders not to return Tim Thomas' calls.

Nail Yakupov? I laugh. In Edmonton, if you order "a beer and a Nail Yakupov", they bring the beer to you on a coaster.

It's actually pretty funny, he's not even being talked about at all as having even been close.  This is a guy that was on the  2010 team and is actually having the best statistical season of his career.

 

Clearly, everyone is taking his post-season collapses very seriously and won't trust him until he proves he's past that.

I legitimately feel like one of the worst snubs aside from Giroux was Hudler. Him being a legend aside, he's tearing it up in Calgary with 35 points this year, and he's happy huddles! Who wouldn't want that face representing their country? 

 

And I mean seriously, Petr Nedved makes it?

Probably for the best. Can you imagine what'd happen if he were to singlehandedly submarine Team Canada? I'd fear for his life.

I mean, they can't be taking post season collapses too seriously if they chose Luongo as their starter right?
