Steve could have and should picked better players than Teows,Bergeon and Morrow and on defense Mike Green should have been picked over Seabrook but our goalies are picked perfect as long as Brodeur and Luongo are one and two to see who plays best! listen to Don Cherry to night I promise you he won,t like all picks
even how much I love to see Canada win Gold I'm not 100 per cent sure now

Why take a flashy defenseman who has not seemed to be able to find his own zone this season and disappeared in the playoffs last year?

I know that is pot calling the kettle Black since I am a Joe Thornton fan(But Thornton has shown himself very able in Team Canada competitions thus far)

The only problem I have with the team is Doughty over Bouwmeester.

We have a terrific offensive rushing Defenseman in Dan Boyle, who also has been great defensively since going to the Sharks. Great duo's like Pronger Niedermayer, who are proven and can play both ends of the ice very well. Pronger can play from the backend and make those passes, while Niedermayer can skate the puck out with the best of them.

The truth is, we do not need Green.

are you feeling okay!Teows,Bergeon,Morrow are all wasted picks and there is lots of players they could have picked instead including Savard didn,t even get a tryout especially Bergeon what good is he going to do! and yes Green top defencemen in the league should have been picked!
watch Don Cherry to night!

Oh yes, you're completely right. I forgot the Olympics were a race to a goal amount. Silly me.

lets face it how else do you win Gold except scoring goals! I know your grinders are important but there is a lot of snipers that are grinders too!

Oh, you mean like the 30 goal scoring grinders that you say don't belong on the team?

Riiiiiight.

Who exactly are you going to replace them with? Doan? All three have career highs that are higher than his. Fisher? Never broken 30 goals, or 50 points. Jordan Staal? Same deal as Fisher. Sharp? Sure, he would have been an excellent choice, but the three are better selections than him.

Lecavalier? Not a checker. St. Louis? Not a checker. Stamkos? Not a checker. Brad Richards? He was on the 2006 team that amounted to nothing, and he's not a checker.

Bergeron, Toews and Morrow never stop working and they don't take retarded penalties. Three defensively responsible players who all have offensive touch, tenacity and discipline? Sign me up.

If the selection committee thought that Green could learn how to play defense to Babcock's expectations, then he would have been brought. When asked about the selection of Doughty, Yzerman said "unlike other offensive defensemen, Drew is not a liability in his own end."

It's not an All-Star game. Defense actually matters here.

Defense and dedication wins gold my friend. Not flashy guys who pile up points against the bad teams, but get exposed against the good teams. The good two way players are worth more than the one dimensional's like Green.

Green is bad defensively this season. We got guys who are nearly as good as him offensively, but far superior defensively and I am happy.

Bergeron has been better than Savard this year, so I don't know why you bring him up.

okay then just tell the players to be deicated and play defense and don,t worry about scoring goals! because there is 2 players that won,t believe me! my opinion the picks could have been a lot better and the opinion of the hockey world including don cherry!
I will say Team Canada has better picks than USA team! American teams should be thanking are Hockey nation Canada for the Stanley Cup every year haha!
