Out of the 20-odd players on Team Canada tonight, half of them will be cut. So, not really the cream of the crop.........
Out of the 20-odd players, about 15 of them would have made the team if it wasn't for the NHL lockout. I think Alberta proved how good university hockey is.
But it's always tougher to win when you're an all-star team against an experienced team. I remember when the OUA all-stars faced Team Canada two years ago. They lost 6-2.
