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

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.

Some countries could challenge the powerhouses with their depth by the looks of it.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

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.

This is what the lockout does to me :P

Sorry people I forgot about Karlsson, I thought I was missing someone

Also, it's going to be pretty hard to predict the goalies. In the real Olympics, it's all gonna be about who gets hot. It could be any of Price, Fleury, Luongo, Smith (although I personally think he had a lucky year), Ward, maybe even Holtby. Who knows, maybe Brodeur is still playing then.

I really don't see Bckstrm on the same line as the Sedins... I'd rather have Eriksson or Landeskog play with them. Don't think the Sedins will be on the first line either, they'll probably be on the second line...
