Can anyone think of a better Canadian player of this generation to have gone through their career without winning gold?
He did have his shot at the national team. From 2004-06 In 2004 the World Cup Team and in 06 with the Olympic team. The team didn't gel and grossly under-performed in Torino, so thus the turnover in 2010. Do I feel bad for him not winning gold if he doesn't get another shot in 2014? No, not one bit.
