Not a real surprise from his play as of late.

Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Well deserved. It's amazing how his play jumped after he found out he can still make the Olympic squad. I hope he can hang onto that confidence and drive

Atta boy Gus.  Played your way right onto an Olympic team.  Good job.


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."

Good job goose. As soon as he got that hatty I knew it was a lock. I hope his play as of late is the beginning of things to come and not just a bi-product of good linemates and a chance to make the Olympics. The way he is going right now he good end up being a superstar

Damn it, they couldn't have announced it next week? The possibility of an Olympic spot really lit a fire under him. Would have been nice if the carrot was dangled in front of him for a couple more games. But putting that aside he has been money and definitely deserves to go. Too bad he is not US born and I can't wish him good luck. Just come back healthy.

I think Gus was in consideration even without this heavy hot streak. With so many Swedes on the Detroit roster the familiarity of the players with each other would give them a leg up over those who've never played on the same team.

Yay Gusgus!  I wonder if it lessens the sting for Franzen knowing that a fellow Wings is going in his place.

It has nothing to do with sportsmanship, I'm a fan not a player. But I'll say it this way I hope he has a good Olympics and gains experience but that the US team still wins.

I'm with you I absolutely love the Olympics. But as happy as I am for our Swedes I still can't root for Sweden unless of course the US team is out. Then: Let's go Swedes.
