Canada won the 2002 Olympics with plenty of BIG guys on their team. Many of which you might proclaim would not "suit" well on international size rinks.

1) A 37 Mario Lemiuex who came out of retirement how many times? Had several operations, still had a bad back. Granted its super Mario, due to his experience his poise and his size he was a good fit for the team

2) Was Owen Nolan the BEST choice for team Canada? Was he the best choice for an international size rink

3) Was Joe niewuwendyk?

4) Ryan Smyth?

5) Was Shannahans style good for a bigger rink?

6) Was Eric Lindros lol... He didnt play the year before. He had health issues and his size was not exactly the best for an international rink...

The last few guys I mentioned all played about 6 games and around 1 point. Yet on a huge rink, Team Canada still won the Gold.
