Sochi Hockey Thread (All Olympic Hockey Talk Here)
the 2014 Canadian Olympic team






Jeff Carter
M. Duchene

Jimmi McJenkins 01-07-2014 10:15 AM

They better win, because this announcement is ridiculously over the top.

NugeFan 01-07-2014 10:15 AM

Hall won't be on team. Duchene is on.

Digger12 01-07-2014 10:16 AM

That forced "Go Canada go!" chant got to the levels of "Claptrap's birthday party!" awkward for me.

yukoner88 01-07-2014 10:17 AM

here we go

Crobby 01-07-2014 10:18 AM

James Duthie ‏@tsnjamesduthie 2m We might have the rights back before this is done.

Dave Hodge - TSN ‏@TSNDaveHodge 1m This is what shootouts are for.

Down Goes Brown ‏@DownGoesBrown 18s Next up, Jason Allison will take a penalty shot...

Dave Hodge - TSN ‏@TSNDaveHodge 7m LeBron had gone to Miami by now.


EDIT: Down Goes Brown ‏@DownGoesBrown 18s Kevin Lowe's rebuild thinks this is taking a completely reasonable amount of time.


gpearson1968 01-07-2014 10:19 AM

Have to admit, this is quite exciting...:handclap:

LTIR 01-07-2014 10:22 AM

Not cheering for an Oiler-less Team Canada unless we play USA...

Go Hemsky, Marincin and Belov !!

Digger12 01-07-2014 10:23 AM

Subban's on the team...glad to hear it.

Digger12 01-07-2014 10:25 AM

Marleau and Nash made the team? That's a bit of a surprise that'd they select both those guys.

Oilception 01-07-2014 10:26 AM

Carter Nash and Benn and no Hall


Spawn 01-07-2014 10:26 AM

Marleau, Nash, Carter and Kunitz all make the team.

yukoner88 01-07-2014 10:27 AM

Smith, Kunits and Nash are the 3 I'm very meh with, especially Smith, he's incredibly overrated

Up the Irons 01-07-2014 10:28 AM

veteran team. i'm ok with it. rather have Marleau and Nash than Giroux or Hall at this time. Hall will get his chance to represent Canada in a best vrs best. don't worry.

frag2 01-07-2014 10:28 AM

Rick ****ing Nash
Chris ****ing Kunitz

So much crap. Watch 2006 repeat

Pablo Aimar 01-07-2014 10:29 AM

Nash and Kunitz are ridiculous choices.

McDuul 01-07-2014 10:30 AM

Benn, Nash, Perry..so slow.

Digger12 01-07-2014 10:32 AM

Really surprised to see Nash make the team over MSL and Giroux. Based off his play this year, he's not remotely deserving of playing for TC.

Beerfish 01-07-2014 10:32 AM

Kunitz is purely service to crosby so crosby better play like the best player in the world or this move will look very very very bad.

I'm not as down on the Nash pick as others, he's been not good this year but he has that rare combination of size and strength and he has played well internationally before. I'm more worried about our defense to be honest.

McGhostbuster 01-07-2014 10:32 AM

Nash is Team Canada's Bobby Ryan.

However the USA was smart enough to not pick him.

Spawn 01-07-2014 10:32 AM

Not a fan of Jeff Carter on the team. 65~ point player who doesn't bring much other than a good shot.

Neither him or Nash should be there imo. Big mistake to leave Giroux off the team.

onetweasy 01-07-2014 10:32 AM

Don't like the Nash pick at all........yeah he was useful in 2010 he has been junk the last few seasons....

Like that Subban made it.

Hard to say in a tourney like this but I am not feeling as good about the team as I did going into 2010....

oilphan 01-07-2014 10:33 AM

Bobby Ryan didn't make team Canada either.

Peter Zezel 01-07-2014 10:34 AM

I don't mind the Nash pick. He's battled injuries this year and was almost a ppg last year. Does Carter have wheels? Shocked he's on after being a reserve in 2010.
