I have to agree with the rose colored glasses theory put forth by that other poster.
Carter is a proven winner at this level of hockey (International Olympics). Hall, not so much.
Although I love to see Hall make the team as well.
Fine, so is it rose colored glasses to have him ahead of Couture? Couture has never won anything, Hall had 48 points to Coutures 37 last year?
Rose Colored has to give, Hall won two memorial cups, represented Canada at the World Juniors, was 1st over all pick and had a MVP caliber year. He should be picked to be on the team.
