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

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.


Stamkos was skating at the morning team practice in Winnipeg before last nite's game....I think he will be ready.  If not, maybe this is where St Louis joins to replace him

A follow up on my point about Smith earlier: the Coyotes just completed their 1st shutout of the season, blanking Calgary 6-0. The problem is that it was with the backup goalie Thomas Griess.

Nana's Vibrator: Watubi: soopey: I like how Mr. Joe "Regular Season" Thornton has now become Mr. Joe "Two Week Vacation During the Regular Season" Thornton.

After seeing his 6 foot saucer pass for a goal the other night, it wouldn't surprise me if Thornton could get a primary assist from 10,000 miles away.  Hell, I haven't played since college 20 years ago and I bet even I could get a goal if Thornton was passing to me.

The man learned how to play NHL hockey from Jason Allison and Pat Burns let it happen.  Allison was just as proficient a passer on a shiatty team with an unreal shooting percentage.  (Dmitri Kristich?  Anson Carter?  Glen Murray?)  I still almost feel bad that Thornton didn't learn to play with a Neely type chip on his shoulder.  Almost.
/He's still had a very good career.


I don't think one learns to have a Neely like chip on their shoulder.  You either just have it or you don't.  He just snapped at times and there was a viciousness about him when he did. Probably still the best power forward ever.  Score 50 and put fear into people physically.

sdkOyOte: 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.


As a fellow Flyers fan I totally agree about Giroux. Since Team Canada's chances of winning a gold medal mean nothing to me personally this is kind of a blessing in disguise, we don't have to risk our captain getting hurt or worn out, and I hope it gives Giroux a little chip on his shoulder the rest of the season

And yes totally agree would be epic if Neal pulled his one of his cheap shot specials on the NHL's golden boy/meal ticket in the Olympics. If I can't get a US gold medal that would be by far the best consolation prize for me as a fan.

Yeah take that last bit back no Neal on Team USA means that's not happening.

And still a good chance that either Giroux or St. Louis makes the team. It isn't 100% Stamkos is going to ready in time.

/Stamkos' injury really killed my fantasy hockey team this year. Thought it was a steal getting him at 3rd overall...

Come to America and make millions then go play for a different country.
Way to show your appreciation.

No Flyers are going to be on Team Canada. Period.
