I would take Patrick Sharp before of at least 3-4 players listed out there...

Bergeron, Hall, J.Staal and even Carter are not better than Sharp...

The only factor is age, but I believe that Sharp will still be on top of his game in 3 years from now.

Such an underrated player... Would love to see him more in the East.

He's flying under the radar and quietly putting together a very solid season. If he hadn't got that concussion, I think he'd be a point per game. He's been well over a point per game pace for the past two months.

Subban has the raw talent. It'll be interesting to see how he develops. I can certainly see why they included him. Interesting to speculate though its way too early to know for sure how good these kids are going to be.

Absolutely without a doubt. Three years from now? Maybe a different story but Tavares is a lot better than I think he's being given credit for. Certainly he's better than Hall right now.

I am shocked that nobody has mentioned Matt Duchene. He is the best Canadian player 20 and under.

If Subban wants to compete into the World in 2011, 2012 or 2013, he would have trolled at an international level before going for the Olympics.

The players best suited for the international game are fast players; Subban seems to be fast enough for the international game.

I have Seabrook ahead of PK. He's going to be 29 years old and most likely still paired with Keith. Why would you break them up?

Anyways, I did my own team and was going to post it but did a search first to see if anyone else had, this was the first to come up. Yes I am a Leaf fan...yes I chose Schenn over PK as the 7th Dman but I did pick him as a sub if that means anything.

I've included their ages as well. You'll notice that there are a couple of guys that are 21/22 but will have 3.5 years in the league by the time we have to go into soulless Russia.

Taylor Hall 22 Sydney Crosby 26 John Taveres 23
Matt Duchene 23 Ryan Getzlaf 29 Corry Perry 29
Steve Stamkos 24 Eric Staal 29 Rich Nash 29
Milan Lucic 25 Jon Toews 25 Mike Richards 29

Sub: Jeff Skinner 21

Tyler Myers 24 Drew Doughty 24
Kris Letang 26 Shea Weber 28
Duncan Keith 30 Brent Seabrook 29
Luke Schenn 24

Sub: PK Subban 24

Marc-Andre Fleury 29
Carry Price 26
Roberto Luongo 35

Go ahead, pick away at it. Remember though I like PK, he's from Toronto, I wish he didn't play for you guys. Being a Hab has nothing to do my decision.

I'm also going to post this on the gen boards.

I really feel like this is about as homer as it gets, remember this is on international Ice where speed and quickness rule the day. Subbans faster more creative offensively and leading a team whose in the playoffs in ice time. I don't even see how it's possible if things continue in this pattern how Luke schenn can be considered better then subban.

Also if Price goes deep once into the playoffs by 2014 like stanley cup or conference finalsx2 I think fleury doesn't even get a look at starting

While I agree, Duchene is the better player I can see them taking Staal over Duchene to form a shut-down line with Bergeron and Richards. If they plan on rolling four scouring lines then definitely Duchene but I see this line as playing roles. My guess for lines using the selected players would be:

Nash-Crosby-Stamkos
E.Staal-Getzlaf-Perry
Giroux-Toews-Hall
Bergeron-J.Staal- Richards
Carter

I'm assuming they'd use the 'fourth' line to match other teams top lines then roll the other three. In any case, I think this is the reasoning behind J. Staal.

Well according to Panger, he certainly plays the white way, so he's definitely a notch or 2 above.

I'd love to see Pietro more often. There should be equal games vs the West seriously. Too many Sens/Leafs games


I'm shocked by how much people are overrating Jordan Staal. He's good, but at that level, many centres are ahead of him.

I don't think that it's homer. There are already puck moving D-men on my roster and there will be a need for a stay at home guy like Schenn. The only reason that Subban is getting the minutes he is is because the Hab's D is paper thin.

As far as the Price comment, I'll agree that IF Price goes deep in the playoffs, maybe he'll get the starting position. But you know how Hockey Canada can be at times with goaltending. They tend to start with a veteran guy first then make the switch at some point down the line.

I give full marks to the Habs management for opting for Price over Halak. He will be Canada's goalkeep in '18.

Bergeron? I don't think so. He shouldn't have been on the last team. Crosby probably got him on there because of their WJC chemistry. I think I'd go with Heatley. One game elimination - you need snipers. He'll still be 32-33 yrs old.

Schenn is a completely different type of defenseman than Subban. I think they'd take PK's skating and offense and two-way play over Schenn though. Maybe both will make it. That lineup is missing a bit of a physical stay-at-home element. Not much balance in those picks, but that's what you get when it's a draft and not crafted as a team.

the thing is that I dont think they'll have that need. Keith, Seabrook, Doughty, Weber will all be great two-way defenseman. Subban will *I think* be a very good 2-way defenseman. If you have something like 5-6 good 2-way defenseman, you dont need a stay at home guy.

But that D-Squad looks so freaking good haha, I cant wait!!

I don't see anyway Patrice begeron makes this team, he shoudln't of been on the last team he was only picked cause they could use him on the 4th line but if anyone got hurt they could move him up. Someone else will fill that role in 3 years time, Also Jordan Staal is insanely overrated by everyone working at tsn, There will be better options then him, and I really don't see MA Fleaury making the team unless Lunongo is crap by then. There is no way in hell Lucic makes this team he can't skate

there are so many other guys we tend to forget. And 3 years is very far away in terms of development.

Guys like Lucic, Duchene, Tavares, Seguin, Eberle could become as good or better than guys already mentioned here. And there could always be some "out-of-nowehere" guys, a bit like Perry who I think nobody would have put on the list 3 years ago... another example is a guy like Ryan Kesler who I would love on any team (is he Canadian?) -- and injuries could always happen.

And we tend to forget guys that are still young and that take more times to develop. A guy like Phaneuf could re-become a favorite in 3 years. he had a good second half, this year, and he has been praised as a leader this year.

Beside the most common names already in this thread, there is a quick list of outsiders that I think could surprise in the next 3 years and become the next Perry in a Canadian selection:

Kesler
Phaneuf
Seguin
Benn
Hamonic
Neal

(ok, I stop. I started to do it team by team, but it would be too long. so the rest is from the top of my head)

Marchand
Ennis
Stewart
Clowe
Couture
Turris

We never know. Some player breakout suddenly. Who would have thought that Stamkos would have reach his potential so fast?

Lol at Lucic. And I'm being a homer Boston basher. The guy just is not that good. This is team Canada. Claude Giroux should be in the place or E. Kane.
Also I'm not too sure about Keith. Didn't have the best year and has not looked good in the playoffs. Obviously he has a few years to pick up the pace. I just hope he isn't a one hit wonder because he is a class act.

Sorry bbut as much as i hate the bruins

Bergeron was HURT during the olympics, suffered a pulled or torn groin in an early game, was used sparringly, but to win face off in crucial times, and he DId win them

but are you watching him out there vs us in this series? the kids a MONSTER, a hell of a player defensivly and decimating us in the face off circle and has 1 G 1 A in 3 games, ...lets please not forget the chemistry he has with crosby, i would think in 3 years they may still look to add him to the team, lets not kid ourselves here hes a hell of a player...
