That's awesome Bergeron is going, makes me want to watch Canada play so much more. This will be excellent for his development too.

I have no doubt in my mind he's dreamed of a day like this to represent his country with some of his countrys best players to win a gold medal. He should be thrilled beyond belief and play great.

Has for Murray, he had a poor playoff of course, so this is his chance to possibly show better of what he can do, for a better contract, and to get more teams interested in his services.

It helps that they moved the tournament back some.

It used to be that only players from teams that missed the playoffs got a chance to play in the Worlds. Which especially back in th eold 21 team NHL didn't leave Team Canada or the US much of a chance.

Now 14 teams miss the playoffs and the Worlds start a bit later, so with 14 missing the playoffs and 8 more out in round one, that gives the teams plenty more players to choose from.

What are you talking about ? Canada won the gold medal in overtime last year against Sweden. Who got the winner ? Anson Carter on a beautiful goal !

the world cup rosters will be named in may. there was an age restriction of 22 and over, but that has been repealed. i am going up to the games in montreal in august, usa vs canada and sweden vs. slovakia. i cannot wait, especially since it may be the last NHL caliber hockey played for a long time.

There is NO way Theodore (your best and only hope) even cracks the top3 goalies... (Brodeur, Belfour, Luongo). Thanks for coming out.

I never knew that and it explains why I remember Canada always having a bad team for this tournament...Rumpy

Still doesn't mean he should have been on the team...... Perrault got 6 points against the Bruins and nobody wanted him on Montreal until he did this.....Rumpy

Carter may not do much in the NHL, but he has represented Canada very very well quite a few times. Oh yeah, and he always goes when asked, even after a long injury-filled season.

With all due respect I have to disagree with you. I really don't see Belfour getting the invitation. What I think Gretzky wants to do is go with the following:

1. Brodeur - He's already won Canada Olympic Gold
2. Luongo - Young and has some international experience
3. Theodore - Young as well and he wants him to get some international experience for future World Cups/Olympics etc.

Belfour is still an excellent 'tender but he's just turned 39 and won't be playing next year (because I feel that the CBA won't get done soon)...therefore almost 40 years old and probably looking at a trailer down in Florida or perhaps a nice fishing boat in Key West...

Sorry but I fail to see the point of bringing Eddie, at 39, unless he is going to start. What good does it having him as your 2/3 goalie? The torch is going to be passed this World Cup. Besides was Belfour even named to the initial list?

AS to World Cup players, I'd be surprised to see anyone other than Koivu as captain of Finland. Zednik,Kovalev,Markov, and possibly Bullis could also paticipate for their respective countries. The World Cup could be important to a player like Thornton. It'll be a great oppurtunity to show himself off on a world stage. Regarding Theodore, I thought it had been hinted that he and Luongo were expected to be 2-3. Depending on the next couple of weeks, that could change. Turco and Belfour have to be considered. It depends on whether they are grooming players for the next Olympics or just putting out the best team possible.
I'd like to see Boynton considered, was he asked to go the World Championships ? He's been playing at that level. Gonchar is another guy who you would assume to be in the mix,obviously, for either tournament.

Luongo

Looking not bad
I would love to see Bergeron and Morrow on the same line. I think they're pretty similar players and neither one is any fun to play against.
