Not sure where you got that from, but it made less than no sense based on what I wrote.

Nuge has taken a leadership role since the day he showed up. He talked to the media about it. Then they roomed him with Mackinnon obviously to further his role. I'm not surprised he received the C. I figured they'd of given him an "A" but the captaincy isn't a surprise to me.

Are people seriously debating over the captaincy? How can you not pick the guy who's played 80+ games of pro hockey and is clearly the best player on the team? All of the guys on the roster will be looking up to him when they need someone to step up.

There is no questions asked on this one, lol. Guys don't kid yourself. It is self explanitory that RNH should be captain becuase he is the only player on the team who has had a whole year of NHL experience and then some.

He isn't big by any means, but what you posted is ridiculous.
Remember ovechkin how hit got hit out of the gold medal. Do you homework before. You come up with ur stupidities.

Most of the people on this board don't know anything and are sheep. Follow the master. No matter what team spot picked I suspect 80 percent of people would follow like sheep. I want people to rub it in my face and prove me wrong at the end. I will be here in January to rub it in all your faces. I'm the biggest team Canada supporter but I will voice my disagreement.

You are a true inspiration to us all, mighty Internet Warrior. May the luck of the celestial keyboards be forever on your side in your quest to destroy the forces of evil. There are no bounds to your audacity and wisdom.

Good one. Llllol. No I love my international hockey more than my NHL. I will not follow like sheep like fools on this board. That's the problem with Canadians overall ( not just in hockey but in everyday life) sheep. I'm not asking for Canadians to be like Americans but to voice disagreements at every opportunity.

After the wjc hub will probably head straight to the NHL ( if there is an NHL) hell probably never end up serving the suspension.

I'm also concerned about the lack of size and toughness, but at the same time it could go the other way and the skill might blow teams outta the water. I like the Drouin selection and I think he's gonna be one of Canada's best forwards.

He needs to serve the games as an active player in Quebec. But this is all a mute point as he will probably never serve his suspension.

I'm sorry, can you please explain how this relates to Nugent-Hopkins. Remember when Tavares didn't get knocked out and dominated as a 17 year old?

Because you insult people if they don't agree with your opinion. You cry about people making assumptions and then call everyone sheep if they don't agree with you. Then you get all huffy when people respond to your nonsense.

I'm a big fan of going with a ton of skill.

We still have a lot of big bodies up front, i.e. Scheifele, Ritchie, Jenner, etc., and plenty of bigger guys on the backend as well.

It's been 4 years since we have won this tournament, why not change it up a bit? The "big" and intimidating team has been beaten before.
