Hall-RNH-Eberle
Spezza

Doughty-Weber
Letang-Pietrangelo
Keith-Seabrook
Boyle

Luongo
Price
Holtby
That's a nice line up, but we need to go with the young guys...The guys in BOLD need to give way for the younger guys...
Replace Iginla by Evander Kane or Logan Couture or brother Staal
and
Boyle by Myers or Subban or
Jay Bouwmeester or Dion Phaneuf or Dan Girardi or Kevin Bieksa
Also
Make Price Number 1 (plays on a crappy Montreal team getting LOTS of ice time and seeing lots of rubber)

If there's a full season lockout, one also has to take into consideration that not every NHLer will find a substitute team to play in. Besides the insurance costs which hamper any player with a big contract, there are only so many extras clubs can fit into their rosters. I'm pretty sure none of them are looking to replace their whole squads.

If for example Crosby stays in the sidelines for the whole season and has nothing but beer hockey to keep him in shape, he may not be so eager to jump out of the cold into a highly competitive tournament.

Line combos aside, Iggy and Spezza should be dropped, imo. Add Seguin, Bergeron, Benn, or one of the players you mentioned.

M. Staal?

There will be loads of great forwards to choose from if the lockout extends for the full year, but the defencemen seem reluctant to play in Europe. Hopefully the season actually starts so that we don't have to see what happens.

Still if the lockout goes a lot longer then expected and the season is cancelled this time there is no excuse for someone like Sidney Crosby not wanting to play, because he is 100% healthy from his concussion and can't say how he played in the Playoffs with Pittsburgh. Plus if he did play and Canada won Gold he when then join the Triple Gold club.
They didn't finish 4th, they finished 2nd to the Czechs, and I believe were unbeaten to that point in the tourney.

These are very good points which other posters are ignoring. Most of the European teams' North American player quotas have already been filled, and those few places still available will likely (because of the expense of insurance) be filled with relatively inexpensive NHL players that neither Canada nor the U.S. would want to consider for international play. So where will the best North American players get the playing time to prepare for the WC?

How effective would North American players, most of whom wouldn't have played a real game in a year, be against European teams made up of NHL players who have played into game shape AND become comfortable on the big ice?

Yep, it's a potentially interesting situation. If for instance Crosby does not play competitive hockey at all, does HC leave him home instead of guys like Spezza/Thornton who are playing in Europe but may be longshots for the Olympics?

I think Hockey Canada should learn from its last lockout that you're better off taking guys who have been playing. Lots of guys from the last one joined after taking a season off, and you could tell.

Do we have any good goalies playing a full season right now?

I think the best is probably Holtby in the AHL... pretty sad.

Overall not bad...BUT why do you guys still keep throwing in names like Iginla , St Louis and Thornton enough with these late 30's guys...Time to pass the torch to the young...

Look At Seguin...Hall, Spezza...Jordan Staal...Evander Kane, maybe even a Ryan O'Reilly, Ladd, RNH, Benn, Neal

A team of players who are playing competitive hockey as of right now:

Tavares Bergeron Seguin
Nash Giroux Briere
Hall Nugent-Hopkins Eberle
Kane Spezza Benn
Couture

Myers Del Zotto
Robidas Russell
Demers Schultz
Dallman

Holtby



Just a beautiful team defensively. I'd say 4-5 goals per game, going both ways.

The forward group is great, but as you said it would be nice to have a better defensive group.

I know but at the same time, this time, it's possibly their last on international ice. 2014-15-16 will be for the next generation

I bet there will be more places in the KHL if NHL cancels the season.

The problem with Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, Eberle and Holtby is they are playing in the AHL. So if their respective teams make a long Playoff run for the Calder Cup they won't be available for Canada.

Well, it is looking more and more like there is going to be a lock out. Sadly almost all of the best Canadians will be "injured"
