Default Canada 2010 Olympic Hockey Roster And Discussion


In The Spotlight


G Martin Brodeur

The all-time great is Canada's best bet in net. He's participated in past Olympics and seems to always bring his game to the next level when he's playing for Canada, as evidenced by him being Canada's best player in the 2006 Olympics. He's got a sparkling .920SV% and a 2.15GAA this NHL season.


D Scott Niedermayer

Niedermayer's struggling this season, but after being named Captain of Team Canada, he'll have to step it up. His play will be crucial to puck movement and on the powerplay, expect him to play as a rover, like he does in Anaheim.


C Sidney Crosby

The other generational talent in the Olympics have each other. Sidney Crosby has a backing group of some elite talent. He'll be expected to center the first line and get plenty of powerplay time. These will be his first Olympics and he might be looking to prove something.

Pretty strong selection!
Only one surprise for me - Patrice Bergeron - he wasn't invited to the orientation camp in August.

There has been a ton of talk about him making it for the past two months, so it's not really a huge surprise. Despite not being invited to the orientation camp, Bergeron has been a complete beast of a player for the Bruins this year. He also gives Canada another right handed shot.

I hope I'm wrong but I am preparing myself for a let down. I'm just not feeling it.

It Is easily the best team annocned so far with Sweden as a distant second, I wish Bowmeester had made it instead of Doughty and Stamkos instead of Toews. But still amazing.

I'm disappointed They didn't take green, with all the problems we had scoring in 2006 green should have been on this team.

Good team. Suprised they put Jonathan Toews on the team, where they didnt have Crosby on the 2006 team. I guess they kinda learned from their mistakes.

Go Canada Go!
