As much as I want USA to take home the gold, it'd be awesome to watch hank and pav battle it out for first as captains.

Heard this on the radio this morning.  Makes perfect sense.  Comment they made though was that he isn't even the captain of his NHL team....which is a silly comment since the captain of his NHL team isn't Russian.

 

Interesting though, I wonder how many of Olympic captains will not be captains of their regular teams.  Can't figure that out yet as not all captains have been named.  I haven't followed it at all, but I know at least Canada hasn't named their captain yet.  With Canada, though, it will be a captain as it will either be Crosby or Toews.

To think the Wings could have had 3 Team Captains in the Olympics if only Cleary had made the Canadian roster.

This  is an honor indeed for Pasha.  His body of work speaks for itself.  We should be very proud of both our captains.

Is St. James looked upon with disdain? This is news to me. I usually go with Khan first and her second.

It never used to be a thing, but lately it's started popping up.  I think the general consensus on St. James is that she doesn't really matter one way or another, but a small minority tend to think of her as a company-line hack.  Presumably because she's a beat writer and therefore tends to just report on what management says, rather than doing more in-depth analysis like other sports journalists.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I can't find them now, but she reported we had Suter and some other false info last off season.

Actually, I think the biggest knock against her is that she tends to make assumptions and leaps in logic, rather than just straight-up reporting the facts and leaving it at that. Also, her writing itself isn't great, and she's definitely a company-line cheearleader.

 

As for Dats - good for him! I'd assumed they'd give the C to Ovechkin (being Ovie) or maybe Kovalchuk (KHL loyalty). He was definitely my pick, though.

 

I wonder how much Sochi - and maybe the possibility of being the captain - has been weighing on him. He's been good this season, but also a bit off.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Does this mean Datsyuk carries the torch during the opening cermony?

They made best possible choice though.

That's because Datsyuk is the best Russian to ever do it! He deserves these honors and i'm excited for him.
