No one is going to convince me that Crosby or Giroux are incapable of killing penalties, or that Toews or Nash or Staal can't score on the PP.
There is no need for an "Offensive/defensive line" mentality. Everyone needs to commit to team defence, and everyone should be free to be creative on offence. We have enough fire power to spread it out over four lines and I think that's the way this team should be chosen. If everyone buys in, we shouldn't have any problems.
I agree completely: Just take the best 20+ guys, but Hockey Canada doesn't seem to understand this (though I think Yzerman does).
