No real surprises too me... but I still say Kane should be there over Lucic.

Good for our Captain he earned this for his hard work!

Still doubt he makes the roster after all.

You never know..... A Ladd Richards Sharpe 4th line would be interesting.....either way congrats on the invite!

A few years ago I would have said he wouldn't have a chance. But I felt he really stepped up his game this past season and could make it as a 4th liner or an extra forward.

Not at all surprised Kane wasn't selected. Marchand is surprising to me. Overrated imo.

Benn and Spezza seem like the biggest omissions to me.

Maybe Kane not getting an invite will give him some extra motivation this year.

I'm sure Marchand and the IIHF reffing would get along swimmingly

I said exactly that to my Bruin homer brother (and he agreed)

you look at someone funny and its a penalty

Marchand would be rendered useless since he cant take stupid cheap shots at people after the whistle

Congratulations to Andrew Ladd!

Can players who were not invited to the camp still be named to the team if they play well early in the season?

Richards - Toews - Bergeron will be the shutdown line so he may be in tough.

Congratulations to Ladd. It would be absolutely fabulous to have a Jet on the Olympic team.

I like Kane, but i think you overvalue him. I'd certainly rather have Lucic on my NHL team. And i don't think either of them are a great fit for the international game.

I actually think Marchand "the hockey player" is underrated.
People don't look past his pest role to see that he is a pretty damn good hockey player.

I do hate him though lol.

I might be different but I'd choose Kane.

Who's better in the NHL is pretty irrelevant when talking about the Olympics. The big ice real changes the game. I would agree Lucic isn't a great fit for international play, but I don't see how Kane wouldn't be a great fit. Style wise I think his game is well suited to big ice. His speed could be a game changer, and getting pucks to the net on goalies who aren't used to the different angles is never a bad thing.

Before Lucic had a good playoffs, he was terrible, and Bruins fans would have tripped over themselves to trade him for Kane.

Maybe, but Kane didn't exactly flourish on the big ice during his stint in the KHL.

Maybe that's one of the reasons he didn't even get an invite
