And yet at the time, less people were surprised than you think when Keenan left Yzerman off team Canada in favor of Brent Sutter, Dale Hawerchuk and a very young, never played an NHL game Eric Lindros.
Revising history seems to happen commonly around here. Picking dirk graham over Stevie was universally accepted as one of the dumbest choices ever made by team Canada staff. Stevie was solid in his own end by this time. Keenan got lucky, because this decision was stupid and criticized by everyone who followed hockey at the time. Canada won despite these poor decisions.
