IMHO, at the last Olympics, the only 2 players who could think, skate, and play as fast and creatively in the offensive zone as Crosby were Keith and Doughty. Those 3 were killers and the other forwards were always a step behind.

FOR MY MONEY, the elite offensive unit for Canada would be a combo of:

Giroux - Crosby - Stamkos
with Keith and Doughty behind them.

I think that grouping could absolutely score at will and dominate mercilessly against literally any other 5 man unit conceivable on the planet. Thats why we won't see it.

BONUS: Hall is going to shove his way onto this team but wind up underused. He is an elite talent, he'll dominate at the NEXT Olympics.
