This is pretty much a great generation with our most dominant Winter Olympic athletes in the prime of their careers (Hamelin, Bilodeau, Moir/Virtue, etc.). The challenge of Own the Podium is whether or not it can continue to produce elite athletes after the current crop retires.

(Also to see if they can make a breakthrough in the Summer Games, but that's a loftier goal which I don't expect to see happen unless half of the elite athletes in this country decide not to go into hockey)
