I don't get why RNH hasn't gone yet. I don't feel that people are projecting ahead enough with these selections.

When it's arguable it's better to err with the younger / faster alternative. When you have that many skilled players, leadership is never going to be an issue. We're also giving young guys experience for future Olympics.

Heatley, say what you want but he always answers when his country calls and does he not hold record for most goals for team Canada as well?

Even at 35, not many players are faster than Marleau.

I've voted RNH the last couple of times but looking at the roster, would rather have Staal there now.

That Marleau? Gonna be hard to do. He's kind of really fast.

I could be wrong but I thought most players lose a ton of their burst in their mid 30s (at least that's the case in other sports).

I guess we'll have to see what happens in the next 1-2 seasons.

Yeah I don't know how Lucic made it over Neal, RNH... All those guys really, except for Mackinnon. I'd put them all on Team Canada before taking Lucic.
