Did you develop any new Man-crushes @ Vancouver '10?

Perry on the other hand.....

Doughty+Keith+Weber = Awesomeness for years to come.

Kesler just makes me hate him more, but that's some kind of compliment.

Roman Wick and Zuccarello Assen. HM to Joe Pavelski.

I came away from these Olympics hating Crosby a little less.

being a canadian fan I was impressed by all on our side except for thornton but a few of the u.s. players really caught my eye, the first being ryan kesler. he gives 110% every shift. id absolutely lose my mind playing against him, he can agitate he can score he is amazing on the pk and just as good at faceoffs. hes going to be key to the canucks playoff success. the second being ryan suter, he had a teriffic tourney. not the flashiest guy but is just plain solid in all aspects of the game

Doughty and Suter for me. I guess I normally pay more attention to forwards than d-men, but I felt like I loved so many defensemen during the tournament.

Don't ever forget Orpik and Kane are from Buffalo.... Kesler is from Ohio State. Just sayin, the USA is on the brink of gold for years to come and tonight's loss actually helps to get the dander up...

Technically they were playing man to man so it was actually Rafalski's fault for not sticking with Crosby................


Not that he wasn't already great but Suter was phenomenal in this tourney. I was surprised even as a Preds fan. I hope this help him take an even further step to establish himself as one of the best Dman in the game. He was VERY close to being flawless defensively the whole tourney. Which is amazing for the amount of time he played.

it's nice to see that people are starting to realize why some of our nuck fans overvalue kesler and shove him down your throats on a regular basis

Toews. To be honest, always thought he was slightly overrated...not anymore. What a beauty.

Others. Kesler, always liked his work ethic, but I got to see more of it on a regular basis. Great player, underrated before the tournament.
Luongo. Liked him, Like him more now. Maybe this is him getting over the hump for big games. So glad he could do it in Vancouver. Hopefully he can put a solid run together in the playoffs. I'm not worried about him not coming up big in the game that matters anymore.

Would wanting to crush the man known as Sidney Crosby count as a man crush? If not, then Mark Streit.
