Starting lineup for each country

28 posts in this topic

If you chose the starting lineup at the Olympics for each country (or whichever you choose to do), what would they look like? And when I say Olympics I mean now, just the best possible roster.

Canada:

Stamkos - Crosby - Giroux

Weber - Keith

Fleury

USA:

Kane - Kesler - Parise

Suter - McDonagh

Quick

Russia:

Ovechkin - Malkin - Kovalchuk

Markov - Tyutin/Kulikov

Bryzgalov

now that's assuming Markov's healthy. And Kovalchuk can play his off side. And man their defense is weak.

Sweden:

Sedin - Sedin - Eriksson

Karlsson - Kronwall

Lundqvist

I was thinking about landeskog on the top line instead of Eriksson but its his off side so I left eriksson

Finland:

Selanne - O. Jokinen - Filppula

Timonen - Pitkanen

Kiprusoff

maybe Granlund could even beat out Jokinen

Slovakia:

Hossa - Handzus - Gaborik

Chara - Meszaros

Halak

man talk about no center depth

Czech Republic:

Erat - Elias - Jagr

Michalek - Kuba

Pavelec

now here's a team with lots of good centers. tough to choose from Elias, Krejci, and Plekanec

EDIT-- ya I forgot Karlsson, knew I forgot someone important. Also forgot McDonagh was american

Gonchar? Erik Karlsson? Russia and Sweden actually have pretty good defences now...

Waffles for Finland's top center? I think the better choice would be Miikko Koivu.

Was looking through the Danish and Swiss rosters, and boy if they were one country they could probably beat weaker teams like Germany pretty handily

Baertschi - Nielsen - Jensen

Boedker - Eller - Niederreiter

Hansen - Regin - Brunner

Streit - Larsen

Josi - Diaz

Sbisa - Yannick Weber

Hiller

Meanwhile, in Slovenia

Doubt poor Anze would ever come near playing for anything significant for his country in international play.

Why did you pass up Karlsson for Sweden?

I'll just say what I think Canada's should be, then list countries that could be a wildcard.

Stamkos-Crosby-Perry :Perry is a natural RW, and gives the other two guys, a body guard :)

Weber-Gudbranson

Price

The Slovak's have a lot of fire power, and a solid defence. The Czech's also look pretty strong, but lack any perrenial star power. Both could challenge the contenders in the later rounds.

Russia doesn't really concern me, and I think Sweden has a lot more skill, as well as grit with Landeskog, and Edler on the team. More so, than the U.S.

For Canada, based on last season my tandem would be Smith & Price, with Luongo, Ward & Fleury competing for third string.

Love the homer picks

Edler over Karlsson? lol.

I'd personally have Rinne over Kipper but I see where you're coming from.

I hate Luongo as much as the next guy but anyone else as the starter would be insulting.

If Fleury and Bryz are the starters, the Canada Russia game is going to be hilarious
