Ovechkin and Malkin are total trash for the Russian team.  These guys never show up in the biggest international competitions.  Time to replace them with the younger guns. And as I stated earlier, Russia doesn't develop good defensemen.  They had Marchenko on the team for Pete's sake.

US hockey needs a major overhaul.  Someone please make US hockey great again.

Isn't Mexico in North America?  Seems unfair to not have representation.

'Murica!

 

To add...I wouldn't be too surprised if Team NA takes on Team Canada for the gold.

 

Team NA vs. Team Europe is my dream final.

100% sarcasm right, especially reference to Arizona?  I'm hoping so, but I can never tell with print :)

 

Datsyuk and Pronger will be great teammates in Arizona.

By the way, I had no idea Russia picked Ovechkin as their captain over Datsyuk.

 

I wonder how many casual sports fans in Russia have ever heard of Datsyuk?  I was there several months ago, and Ovechkin is a celebrity there, despite playing in the NHL.

I propose a new tournament format.

 

 

Team North America

Team Scandinavia

Team Eastern Europe

Defending Stanley Cup champs

Not the Swedes? Surely you think Lidstrom and Zetterberg were talented players. Holmstrom gave a new meaning to "net front presence" in the league. 

 

Far as American era, Larkin seems promising. 

 

Yeah, that's right.  I meant the first three phases.  Didn't see you put Canadians in there, though I don't think Detroit had a Canadian phase.  Every team was predominantly Canadian once upon a time. Not really a phase.

Well with no Wings players playing for Sweden, I'm glad they got whooped by our guys over in Team Europe.

 

Remember when every Swedish  player seemed to play for the Wings?

I'm glad they've finally forgiven Cory Hirsch.

I, for one, hope that he gets his ass handed to him.

 

So does everyone in the WWE, probably.  I've always heard the guy is an *******.  Plus, he's a Blackhawks fan.

Here's another question.  What National Anthem will play first if Team North America wins the tournament?  What if Team Europe wins the tournament?  Will they play "The Final Countdown" by Europe in lieu of an anthem?
