Your 2014 Team Canada Roster

Recommended Posts

Slightly off topic, but I guarantee if i made a new thread it would get locked by our oh so gracious moderators.

What is every ones thoughts on yzerman? I mean, he doesnt exactly run the best NHL team, why was he chosen to represent our country?

Was there no better options available?

Is he better at his job than I give him credit for? Or am I just in thinking that this task should have been delegated to someone else more capable?

We are one year away from the opening of the Sochi games. I doubt Yzerman has many guys penciled in at this point. Still lots of spots up for grabs.

Forwards

Locks: Crosby, Toews, Stamkos, Nash

Probables: E. Staal, Getzlaf, Perry, Bergeron, Giroux, Tavares

Others: Thornton, Marleau, Iginla, M. Richards, J. Staal, Benn, Eberle, Couture, Seguin, Hall, RNH, St. Louis, Spezza, Neal, Lucic, Laad

Defense:

Locks: Weber, Pietrangelo

Probables: Doughty, Keith

Others: Boyle, Seabrook, Letang, Girardi, Staal, J. Schultz, Bouwmeester, Burns, Hamhuis, Subban, Phaneuf, Myers

Goalies:

Locks: Price

Probables: Luongo

Others: Fleury, Mike Smith, Brodeur, Crawford, Ward

I like hamhuis as much as the next guy, but he doesn't exude top 6 canadian defender to me. Maybe a spare if he's lucky.

FYI: Olympic rosters have been expanded to 25 players, opening 3 extra spots. I expect Yzerman will select 14 F, 8 D and 3 G, though perhaps he would take 15 and 7.

A guy that should get a long look is Alex Burrows

Has speed

Kills penalties

Plays center if needed

plays defense if needed

very good forechecker

very responsible on defense

scores huge goals.

It's a short tournament so prior chemistry is a good thing.

St.Louis-Crosby-Stamkos

Neal-Giroux-Tavares

Nash-Toews-Perry

Staal-Staal-M.Richards

Extras: Eberle, B.Richards

Eberle will take Neal's place if the second line isn't clicking. While B.Richards could play on either the second or third line if their is a chemistry issue.

Weber-Letang

Keith-Doughty

Pietrangelo- Staal

Extras: Subban and Girardi

Subban is an exciting, game changing player while Girardi is a good steady d-man.

Price

Luongo

Fleury
