Everyone seems to think Tavares is a lock. I don't think so.

Same goes for Perry and staal...these guys have been here before and will be leaned on defensively to compliment the young guys like Tavares, Giroux, Stamkos who dont have the defnesive games that they do.
Canada has better options to play a two-way role than Getzlaf.
Toews, Bergeron, M. Richards, J. Staal, etc. All of these are players suited to play on the 3rd/4th lines of a best-on-best tournament.
I think Getzlaf will be in the top 6, or not on the team at all.
I think he has the inside-track for 2C, ahead of Tavares.
