Thanks Corey for 2010 Vancouver. Much appreciated, now step aside. ))) Sorry, I'm not a Perry fan. And not much of a fan of the idiots who work at Hockey Canada either.
Don't short-change him; he's a 40-goal scorer, and will probably be Canada's highest goal-scoring winger again this year. The willingness to go to the net hard and pay the price (and the ability to capitalize once he's there) is an element largely missing from Team Canada if he's not there, Taylor Hall notwithstanding.
