Cheering against Canada because one of our prospects didn't picked is beyond extreme...you cheer for the Maple Leaf, not the name on the back of the sweater. Yikes.

You wan't canada to lose bc a canuck was cut? I don't get people on here


Not afraid to admit it, I am a Canucks fan first and foremost. Y'all can hate me for it but a dumb decision to cut one of the best D-men at camp sure doesn't make it any easier to cheer for Canada.

See i wouldn't have been so disturbed by the thought Corrado being cut plainly for the fact other players were better than him...but that isn't even the case. Corrado flatly outplayed all the Defensemen in this selection camp. Even in the Subway Series, he was a very good Dman and nearly outplayed others except for Dougie Hamilton. Thats bothering me is that Corrado played his heart out and outshined a lot of the first round picks such as Dumba (who was cut), Reinhart, and Murphy yet was released due to a numbers game, bias opinions or whatever people are calling it.

I still would be upset that Corrado got released, but at least I'd be at peace knowing there were other better players ahead of him...certainly that isn't what it is in this particular situation.

Exactly how I feel, I still love our team and hope our boys can bring back gold. I just feel that I might have a tough time being as passionate as usual knowing that Corrado got screwed. (Atleast he did IMO)

I Live in Sudbury and have season tickets so I'd say I know a thing or two about Corrado. I think his last game vs Erie sums up his work. He is a beast. You want him on the pp because he moves the puck so well. You want him on the pk because he is a wall. He outworks, outmuscles, and outsmarts his opponents. You want him to play that last 5 minutes because he can shut down 5 guys.
The last 5 minutes of that Erie game I saw him outwork the forwards in the corner to clear the puck, block shots, clear guys out of his goalie's crease. Get punched in the mouth and be the one to tell his team to calm down when he could have gotten into a fight. He was a one man team on the ice.
Frankie provides something the team needs. True leadership on the back end. He is that calming prescence that lets your offense do it's thing.
I say all this and I am not a Wolves fan at all. Watching them play is like watching Toronto I can't do it. I am there to watch the other team. In spite of that Corrado always stands out.
I have a bad feeling about the defense this year. Murphy was the wrong pick. No need for him with Reilly and Hamilton.

I think it came down to one thing only. Team Canada was looking for one offensive defenseman and it came down to either taking Corrado or Murphy. Murphy is coached by Steve Spott in Kitchener so he had an advantage heading into the camp. I live in Calgary and watched the 2 games and tryout, Corrado was one of the better d-men out there. Murphy has amazing offense, his biggest knock is if he is capable of playing D, Spott said so himself that he believes in Murphy, he just needs to get everyone else to believe in him too.

This added advantage for Murphy helped him get onto the team. Don't get me wrong, I think he belongs on it, but I think Corrado outplayed the others. It all comes down to what role he would be meant to play. It sucks that Corrado got cut, but it won't stop me from waking up at 1am on Boxing Day and wear my Canada jersey.

I don't watch the WJCs to see my country win, that's what the Olympics are for to me. I watch it to see young, deserving players play their hearts out for their countries, regardless of which ones they may be from.

I never really cheer for any particular country and was only joking. Sorry if anyone took it as it wasn't intended.

Don't worry, Duncan Keith got cut too because he wasn't "physical enough"...but he was good enough to win a stanley cup and and a gold medal in the olympics. Go figure. Watched Keith play all through junior and had to laugh when they cut him. Some of these junior coaches and scouts are clueless at differentiating skill sets. Frankie is a victim of this same problem. Kudos to the Nucks for drafting this guy under the radar. That is assessing skill.

More like is hard to cheer for Canada when they don't look at who performed well at the selection camp and instead went and chose players that under-performed. As a Canadian, I will cheer for the Canadian team as much as the next Canadian. But I really hope that goaltending and defense will not be the reason why we failed to win gold at this year's tournament.

If it is, it won't only be because we didn't have Corrado on defense

Rielly - Hamilton (offensive players)
Harrington - Ouellet (was gonna say Xavier's not bigger than Frankie but since he was a lock)
Reinhart - Murphy (Impact offensive defenseman with solid D-man)
Wotherspoon (touted as "reliable" defensive D-man-- could've seen Corrado here)

I can kind of see how they could justify Frank getting cut, since he's more of a Jack-of-all-trades, master-of-"none" in that he can play offensively and defensively but he's not a big-time scoring D-man.

Ouellet had 60 points in 63 games last season, Hamilton's been a scoring machines and Rielly/ Murphy have been p.p.g. D-men, whereas Frank had 26 points in 60 if the stats are right. He's not quite the offensive juggernaut.

With the reliable guys, Harrington's a shutdown man, same as Reinhart and Wotherspoon's pretty reliable

I think for me it would have come down to Frank and Wotherspoon battling for the 7th spot since if not for his offensive play Ryan Murphy would've been locked by Steve Spott his coach, whereas with the similar size and safe plays by both Frank and Tyler I'm not sure why Tyler would have gotten the upper hand on "size" when Frank not only isn't small (Tyler's only got 1 inch and 6 lbs on Frank) but can also hit, skate out of trouble and even score on the other end.

Anyways, they've made up their mind and good for him to not pull any Samuelssons.

So what if some people won't be cheering that hard for Canada now? I know I won't be now. Having a Canuck on the team adds to the experience imo.

I won't be cheering for Canada to lose, but I don't really care if they win or not. They didn't even pick the players that played the best to make the team.

Well aside from possibly Luongo (and who knows if he even will be) there's most likely not going to be any Canucks on our Olympic team in 2014 either, will you not care then?

Not as much without a Canuck. Like I said, it gives it an extra boost. For 2014, I'd be cheering for a Canada vs Sweden final, for the sake of the Sedins of course.

It's hard to cheer for players that I either don't like or am just neutral about.

Hamhuis could well make the 2014 roster, he's becoming more known now. He brings a steadiness and a two way game team Canada could use.

Why did they bother having this stupid camp? It was just a waste of time. The best players (imo) in the camp were MacKinnon, Shinkaruk, Brussoit and Corrado. The fact only 1 of those 4 (and MacKinnon probably would have been chosen even with a bad camp) shows that Hockey Canada had already chosen their team. All this camp did was make 12 players miserable.

Well you could blame Bettman because if there wasn't a lockout I bet you he would have been on the team. ;)

Sorry Frank that you didn't make the team. But you've certainly gotten a lot of Canucks fans excited for your future on our club.

Thats a fair point, it does seem pretty much year to year they know who they want to take...so why bother?
