DD was 20 yrs old and less experienced than VV when he made Team Canada. I think the whole experience thing is overrated, especially because I think there is a clear gap between what VV brings and the other candidates.

Markov is the only "lock" in my opinion. I think slugs like Volchenkov won't make the team especially on the big ice. Gonchar is past his prime. The CBJ duo is pretty meh. While the Russian forward core can hang with anyone, their D is pretty suspect. No one skates as well as VV and puck moving will be at a premium.
