nice quote about Ortmeyer in the Daily News today

AMERICAN BEAUTY: U.S. Olympic Team GM Don Waddell of the Atlanta Thrashers was in attendance on a scouting mission. While he wasn't about to proclaim Rangers winger Jed Ortmeyer in the mix for Turin, Waddell said the native of Nebraska had caused all of USAHockey to finally notice him.

"Obviously, you're right - he was not on our radar at the beginning of the season," Waddell said. "But you've got to recognize the way the kid has played."

I think a Blake-York-Ortmeyer line would be fantastic in an Olympic tournament.

I like it: the B-Y-O B line -- the ultimate party line!

For finland we got Immonen, Nieminen and I think Korpikoski and Pikaralenin

For USA, we got Poti, Ortmeyer

For Russians we got Tyutin, Kasper, Kondratiev

For Sweden we got Lundqvist and Nylander

For Czechs, Straka, Jagr, Rozsival, Malik, Prucha

Not saying all will make it but these are the choices.

For USA i say both make it, for Russians, I say Kasper, maybe Tyutin. For Fins Immonen and maybe Nieminen. For the czechs I say all make it, for Sweden Lundqvist and Nylander. What u think??

I seriously doubt Immonen will be picked -- Saku Koivu and Olli Jokinen are locks for the first two lines and then they have a lot of players to choose from before they get to Jarkko. He'll be there soon though! Hannu Pikkarainen and the Korpedo have no chance. Ville Nieminen has the best shot of the four.

Quote:

If there's justice in this world, Orts will make it, but I wouldn't put $$$ on it. Good to hear that MacLean was giving him a serious look-see, though. If Poti keeps up the decent play, he could well make it.

Quote:

Hmmmmm....not sure. I'd think Toots will get a look, but is probably on the bubble at best. Kasper will probably make it (I still find it weird that he plays for Russia). Drats I doubt.

Quote:

Lundqvist is the biggest lock for the Olympics we have on the team besides Jagr. Nylander probably will be kept out by Sundin and Forsberg, and like Immonen, he ain't no checking line centre.

Quote:

You forgot Rosie! I say Jagr and Straka are locks. Malik and Rosie are likely (provided Martin comes back and plays as well as he did before his injury). Rozsival and Prucha are tougher. Again, if there's justice in this world, Prucha will make it, but I think he'll be on the bubble -- there's too much forward depth in the Czech team. Rozsival probably won't make it, I think.

You also forgot Marcel Hossa, who I think will probably find a role on a Slovak team that has skill, but isn't blessed with too much depth.

Poti's on the outside...

looking in. Ortmeyer would be an interesting pick. You do not normally see guys being picked for these things who do not have scoring capability. It would be an interesting departure, and I wonder how Ortmeyer's game would translate on a larger ice surface.

Don't see 'Drats making it and Toots I'm not sure about either - but admittedly I'm not well-versed on Russian defensemen currently in the league.

Korps, I would guess, doesn't have a snowball's chance in...Aruba (cleaning things up for the board). Lundqvist will likely go and has a chance to start.

And of course there are others. The Rangers could have many players going to the Olympics - which could be viewed as a positive and a negative. Positive in that they stay in game shape, negative in that they don't get the rest.

When Detroit won the Cup in 2001-2002, they had about 7 or 8 guys playing in the Olympics. It doesn't make things easier, but if they have somewhat of a cushion they are going to be fine. Every team's best players are going to be Olympic bound.
