Nah, I'm cool with it.

Full disclosure: I'm a Blackhawks fan.

Are there substantially more players from Western Conference teams, or is it just me?

Looking at the standings, that's about right.

You could make a solid case for Seabrook, but his omission doesn't upset me.

Gold: Sweden
Silver: Canada
Bronze: Slovakia (my darkhorse pick for the tournament)

Russia will sh*t the bed as usual and blame it on gays or aliens or something.

Canada will lose to Sweden and Don Cherry will blame it on gays or aliens or something.

I really hope you're wrong, lest I have to take one for the team.

I don't think they have the goaltending this time to carry them. Actually, I think  the same thing for Sweden (IIRC Lundquist is not playing well, he was benched against the Leafs).

I may be biased here, but I think Canada can win it again.

With Canada's depth you can never count them out, but yeah...a Canadian picking Team Canada. Big shocker.

Love to see Jeff Carter in there and maybe he'll play wing to Crosby. Carter is a pure sniper and if Kopitar and King can set him up, Crosby should find him too on the bigger ice with plent of space for Carter to get loose.
 
2014-01-07 01:59:06 PM
Fully expect Russia to win on home ice after doing a bit of cold war style fixing and middle of the night phonecalls to all opposition.
 
2014-01-07 02:01:12 PM
Canada does not win on big ice. Yzerman knows this. That's why half-assed the selections this year. Probably pulled them out of a hat.
 
2014-01-07 02:01:33 PM
No Claude Giroux?

/outrage

Why would I complain aboot my team's players being left off the list?

I'd rather they get the break to rest and heal for the second half of the NHL season.

Some would say that playing with pretty much an all star will elevate the player's skill level as they practice and play together for 2 weeks. Of course, if an injury happens that it's all for nothing but I saw Doughty and Brown both elevate their games a lot after the 2010 Olympics. Could be just a coincidence since they were just starting their prime but I think Doughty got to his prime a lot quicker than normal (he's still under 25 and he's been one of the best D-man in league for 3 seasons now).

This.  Also, I'd rather see the US win anyway.
 
2014-01-07 02:12:26 PM
On another note .. did anyone else get a kick out of noticing the Czech team has Petr Nedved on it. Yes THAT Petr Nedved who hasn't played in the NHL since 2006-07 season.

hes 43!

The NHL stopping their season for the olympics is beyond silly.

How many days have you been a hockey fan?  I think it's great that you have decided to start following the league.

It annoyed me but he can use the break. But srsly, Rick Nash? The guy who's 202nd in the NHL in scoring? I don't care what Nash did in 2010 cuz Seabrook was on that team too and he's certainly as good as he was then.

No Martin St. Louis on the team.  These Olympics are dead to me.

You can blame his injured teammate Stamkos, who I don't think earned the right to be on this team.

Unless hockey counts days differently.

It's a good thing they have Price and Smith as back-ups then....

It's nice to see that he's been following the NHL since before hockey was invented (or approvimately 273 years).

Oh goody, Luongo...ya this won't end badly.
 
2014-01-07 02:46:49 PM
I'd be rooting most for the Bergeron line, but Christ...what if for some stupid reason Bergeron ends up on a line with Crosby?  What will I do then?  JUST WHAT IN THE HELL DO I DO THEN?!!!
 
2014-01-07 02:48:13 PM

TheBlackFlag: Oh goody, Luongo...ya this won't end badly.


The rink in Sochi will be playing lots of Chelsea Dagger for Luooooongo.
 
2014-01-07 02:50:39 PM
Price will be the starter by the time the Qualification round starts....if not sooner.

I was hoping St. Louis would be there.

You can't NOT take Stamkos at this point.

Nash/Marleau/Carter....St. Louis/Neal/Giroux.

Although I expect Nash to play well and I don't mind him being selected at all.

I also don't mind Carter. But he can be useless when he's not scoring goals.

Hamhuis....left shot or not, Seabrook was one of Canada's best d-men in 2010.

 After witnessing, in person, Brooks "the spinning pylon" Orpik's epic bedshiatting of a dumpster fire last Sunday I can only imagine what is going on in Sid and Geno's mind about playing against him on the larger sheet. USA isn't going to go far folks, especially with a coach who is totally unable to adapt when opposing team shuts down their current system.The only chance they have is for the players to secretly come up with a plan B so when it comes off the rails they don't have to rely on DB.

Sweden or Russia for gold.

 .. and the fark does Rick Nash get on this squad ?  Mr Canadian Hockey..  gimme a break..

That would make him one of the few people left alive who have actually seen the Maple Leafs lift the Stanley Cup

50 million Russians will all be willing to pour him some vodak I'm sure.

Stamkos is an ace and I love him, but dude isn't even practicing with the team yet, let alone setting things on fire after coming back.

I like how Mr. Joe "Regular Season" Thornton has now become Mr. Joe "Two Week Vacation During the Regular Season" Thornton.
 
2014-01-07 03:10:06 PM
Seabrook should be in there over Hamuis or Subban.

I can't wait to see the outrage of my FLyer friends when they see "no good for anything nancy boy" Jeff Carter is on the roster but not Captain Claude Giroux...

Now, don't get me wrong I am a Flyer fan and Giroux fan, but I would prefer he get a break and a little bur in the saddle to help motivate him to prove Team Canada wrong for excluding him, I also do not want him on the same team with Sid or Kunitz long enough to diffuse any of the hate, and I wonder what his teammates would think of him if James Neal decided to play for team USA the way he plays for the Pens (ie: Dirtiest POS in the league) and puts a knee to Sids head while he is down...

Honestly, the Canadians win if Smith is in net in the elimination rounds, best goalie on the roster. Luongo and Price fold like origami when things get hot.
