Shot is irrelevant really. Neal and St. Louis both play the right side. I don't think Canada wants to get too center happy. They already have a couple centers playing the wing, not sure they want another.

My gut says Canada will favor a scorer rather than another playmaker.

One thing in G's favor though is that he is versatile. He can play PK and PP and any forward position. There's no guarantee the guy who replaces Stamkos is directly taking his spot in the lineup. He may end up as the extra guy, so being able to wear different hats is important.

People (on this board especially) HATE change. Anything that is even remotely non-generic people jump all over. I liked a lot of the jerseys for the most part. The only one I wasn't too fond of was the blue Finland jersey which is usually one of the best looking jerseys. Grabbed a Navy USA one a couple months ago. Just debating who to get still.
