Nash is the biggest question mark. The rest seem reasonable.

Some very questionable choices. Even taking Vlasic over Seabrook. Seabrook is just as good and plays with Keith. Kunitz I don't like, Hall is a better player and better suited to the big ice.

M Smith is a joke to me, guy shouldn't be on the team. over all not brutal, but I am not really happy with the picking. Some clear mistakes to me. Also Marleau over Thornton?

I would have taken Giroux over Nash for sure. Other than that, Kunitz is the only iffy pick for me.

With regards to Chris Kunitz, I don't think ive ever heard him interviewed...strange.

Remember he did play 4 seasons in ANA with Getzlaf and Perry...with respectable numbers. Won a cup in 2007' So hes proven he can contribute on on Multiple cup winning teams. So people that are saying hes just Crosbys right hand man, can look at that.

His name just doesnt seem to be classified with the rest of the players on this team, but his stats speak.

if they are taking Nash during a so so year, they should have taken corey crawford over puke lips mike smith - its not like he didn't play a role in that cup, he was nearly front and center.

My dad knows Seabrooks dad. They both live in tsawwassen. Apparently they didn't take Brent because of his foot speed and because he didn't bring a dynamic that wasn't already provided by the other Dmen.

I really don't get the hate for Nash, he's proven time and time again he's very good on international ice, was 1/3 of the best line in 2010 and last year he had 22 goals in 44 games.

Everyone on NYR is underachieving this year.

I'm also not a big fan of Smith but I doubt he ever sees the ice.

Really surprised St. Louis isn't on the team and someone like Nash, Kunitz, Duchene, Benn are. Impressively different roster than I expected. I had the Dmen all pegged but Hamhius and Vlasic. Really expected Seabrook and Keith as a pair just on a combination of skill and chemistry alone.

John Tavares comming out party!! Calling it now, hes gonna rip it up this Turny. Babcocks gonna have to spread out the love with PP Minutes.

Benn will also surprise alot of people, he doesnt get alot of attention in Dallas, with Canadians watching him, but this guy is strong, skilled, he protects the puck so well, and hes a pretty good passer aswell. He proved himself the first part of the season, after not even getting invited to summer camp.

My thoughts exactly. How the **** does Nash make the team? If he's the 14th forward, fine. But if he's playing top minutes and this team doesn't perform I'll be really ****ing pissed off.

He's Literally the Most Overrated player in the League. He scores a bit and LOOKS like he should be a really dominant force, but isn't really ever. Doesn't win anything and is just a rich man's Dustin Penner, when we're being honest. He's tremendously overrated and I wonder if how much he's overrated by hockey people will get him into the HHOF?

No Seabrook, makes that "perfect" D-Core invalid.

If that's the case, why didn't St. Louis make it? Because he's 10x the player Nash is and has been to more international competitions than him. It doesn't make sense.

Kunitz making it just makes me shake me head. Talk about favoritism. Just because he plays with Crosby doesn't mean he deserves to be on the team. Taking him over St. Louis and Giroux is ridiculous.

I could go on and on and yes, I get it. There will always be question marks, but there are a few big ones that don't make a lot of sense.

And Kevin Lowe knows how to build a team of winners if there's ever a concern!

Their chances are about even. In my opinion, Finland is more likely to get a medal than Canada. They don't have a single medal when playing best on best olympics with international rink size.

Well as far as MSL vs Nash goes (and I'm rattled about MSL) I guess it's because MSL is only really useful if he's used in a top-6 role and it seems like they wanted to have their wingers to be more goal scorers as opposed to play makers. Nash is versatile and plays a shut down role effectively, has always done good for TC internationally and even played on big ice last year during the lockout.

Nash has a spot on my team on the wing with Toews but with that being said I also had MSL on the first line so yeah.

He was dominant last season, and played very well in the 2010 Olympics. Like I said he was 1/3 of the best line for Team Canada last games. I have a feeling TC wants to play Nash with Toews again.

Mah B team

Neal - Giroux - St. Louis

Lucic - Staal - Eberle
Skinner - OReilly - Perron
Spezza, Turris

Seab - Subban
Giordano - Boyle
Campbell - Letang
Phaneuf

Harding

Still sort of hard putting it together, I don't know enough of the players.
