Your 2014 Olympic Gold Medal Team
 
Put together the roster you'd like to see in a Gold Medal Final in the 2014 Olympics. Country doesn't matter and don't care about extra players or why someone was left off your team. It's your team.. :)

Team Canada

Sharp Crosby Perry
Benn Stamkos Giroux
Hall Tavares Eberle
Seguin Toews Lucic

Keith Weber
Doughty Letang
Pietrangelo Girardi

Price

Would be cool to see a Price-Halak matchup in my opinion

Giroux has to be on the team. Most likely over Lucic, Heater, etc

I agree.. fixed.

SephF 12-14-2012 12:43 AM

Guys who I think have a better chance of being on the team than Sharp :

Getzlaf, Mike Richards, Eric Staal, Iginla, St.Louis, Nash, Bergeron.

Hall, Seguin, Lucic (because of intl ice) are all going to be hard pressed to make the team as well.

None of those players made my team. I won't get into the debate as to why.

The Gourmet 12-14-2012 12:48 AM

Heatley will not be on the team.

Wouldn't hurt my feelings.. but I really like Lucic.

US goalie depth is awesome.

buckridesagain* 12-14-2012 12:52 AM

Can't have Perry without Getzlaf.

Inflict 12-14-2012 12:56 AM

Neal - Crosby - Giroux
Nash - Stamkos - Eberle
Sharp -Towes - Iginla
Kane - Tavares - Perry

13th forward Spezza

Weber - Doughty
Boyle - Letang
Keith - Seabrook

7th defender Hamhuis

Price
Fleury
Smith


It may be a stretch to say that Iginla will still be productive at his age, but he has yet to disappoint. If he retires or his production drops, I would probably add Jamie Benn in his place. Same goes with Boyle. If he retires, I would replace him with Pietrangelo. Plus there are a ton of centerman that are left out such as Getzlaf, Seguin, Thorton, Stall brothers, Richards, Henrique, Bergeron, etc. It's really hard to pick a team with so much depth and my opinion will probably change in the coming years. But this is the team I predict.

I do too but I don't think he'd be as effective on international ice.

JSC 12-14-2012 01:03 AM

Out of all the Oiler young guns, Hall should be considered first IMO. He brings a factor only few possess. Not to mention he's a natural LW which Canada only has a few of.

JetsHomer 12-14-2012 01:03 AM

How are people getting the defence wrong.

Weber, Doughty, Pietrangelo, Keith and Letang are all going to make it. Seabrook will probably be 6th d.

Seventh d is a fight between Staal, Subban, Hamhius and Girardi

Neal won't be in over Benn, book it. So keep Iggy in and replace Neal, Iginla's age, experience, and skill will be essential IMO.

He didn't make it in 2010. He definitely won't be there in 2014.

I chose Neal because of his chemistry with Crosby. Benn may very well make the team as he has enough talent.

Joe Sakic 12-14-2012 02:17 AM

God these are making me so excited for the Canada vs USA game(s).

Some of the best hockey ever played.

St. Louis is one of the most underrated players in the NHL. The reason why Stamkos got to 60 goals is because of St. Louis. He was extremely close to making my roster, but I had to cut him due to his age.

Don't forget about Cory Schneider either.

Nah.

St. Louis assisted on something like 20 of he's goals or so. Might have been even less. Iirc, Teddy Purcell assisted on at least as many Stammer's goals as St. Louis.

St. Louis was one factor but not THE factor.

Or that's the way I see it.
