Quite frankly I'd like to see Iginla get snubbed by Hockey Canada for all the years of him snubbing the World Championships, sorry fellas, gotta go rest. You think in the past 10 years he could have accepted just one invite? So, if all things are equal and Marty is still putting up pts with Stammer, then by all means take Marty and leave Iggy behind. He can go get the rest and spend time with the family.
Actually, reflecting on it a bit, it would be a damn shame if MSL goes through his career without winning an Olympic gold. He wasn't established as a star player in 2002 obviously, and was (IMO) snubbed in 2010. Given that, and his age in 2014, I (like the others posting here) would be surprised if he made the 2014 team. Can anyone think of a better Canadian player of this generation to have gone through their career without winning gold?
