Right. 2010 marked a changing of the guard for team Canada. Iginla and Morrow played very well, and at times Boyle and Pronger were great, but for the most part that tournament belonged to the under-25 movement let alone the old dudes. The San Jose line was mostly balls all tourney. Canada would be wise to get the Myers' and Stamkos' some time out there - Bettman won't be commish forever.
