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.

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!
well there sure is some surprises Patrice Bergeron and Jonathan Toews just wasted picks in my opinion and also why Mike Green isn,t picked CRAZY!
I'm not surprised with Teows then I am with Bergeon but Steve knows more then us,otherwise he wouldn't be making the decisions.
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!
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!
Toews and Morrow are wasted picks??? Are you serious?

Morrow brings some much needed grit, and if we get into a shootout for a medal Toews may be the best we have. HE has already shown he can handle the pressure of having the entire teams success rest on his stick, while playing on the big stage.
not really wasted picked but we could have picked better yes I know Toews rocked in the shoot out for Canada in the World Juniors couple years ago you guys are the only people I know that likes these picks!
what is everyones top picked favorites in order? mine are

Czech Republic
+1... I agree with this prediction. Wait, scratch that. Sweden over USA for bronze.
it is a tough call for Gold between Canada and Russia but Canada should pull it it off but powerplays is going to be huge!
Brodeur doesn´t look sharp out there.
The San Jose line looks very good, playing with grit.
Pull Brodeur or no GOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Just like last Olympics!
I believe Luongo will be in the next game.
Brodeur looking better but I'm worried at the end of the 2nd period!
if we can,t beat Germany then we shouldn,t be in the Olympics I don,t even think there is an NHL player on Germany I know John Tripp as he played in Oshawa for the Oshawa Generals in the OHL with Marc Savard in 1997

does anyone know if the arena that Canada played in is the General Motors Place where Vancouver Canucks play? because they call it the Hockey Place
No, it's why the rest of the world is jealous of them. Look at every country on Earth, more foreigners want to come to the USA than any country on the planet. Europe would be speaking German today if not for the USA. The rest of the world would be speaking Japanese if not for the USA. But everyone hates the guy on top, it's nothing new....we're used to it.
don,t let your head get too big buddy about the USA they only won because of Miller and the USA is far from the top in any part of life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what does it say about Canada that they've won one Olympic gold medal in the last 50 years? You guys created the game after all.:cheeky4:
and just a reminder only for our Canadian players the American NHL teams wouldn,t have the Stanley Cup every year!!!!!!!!
what does everyone think about Gary Bettman not wanting our NHL players playing in the Olympics anymore? I guess this is too good of Hockey for Bettman!
Great game. Way to go Canada is the best but USA was not that far behind.
USA was there because Russia choked!
I wouldn't say that, Russia totally chocked but America had a really good team. and you could Say Canada was there cause Russia chocked not USA.
no your wrong Canada had the best team on paper and Russia was 2nd and USA wasn,t even a favorite! and also it wasn,t the American team it was Miller!
Anyone who knew Hockey knew that the USA was a serious threat.

Sure Canada had the best Roster, but after the first meeting with Canada it was clear the USA had the best TEAM. They played like it. Unfortunatly for the USA the Best Roster became a a better team in the past week and were just barely good enough to beat them.
when we posted predictions back in posts 35-39 why didn,t you pick USA? because they were not a favorite it was Miller all the way even when USA beat us it was Miller
