The more hockey the better for me

And getting to see elite players play with other elite players they don't usually play with is awesome

Well, when you put it that way, it's hard to argue!

Nope. Seriously. Hard to say no to more hockey and interesting line combos.

Tavares - Crosby - Stamkos
Hall - Giroux - Eberle
Staal - Getzlaf - Perry
Richards - Bergeron - Toews

J. Staal, J. Spezza (More likely to be Nash or Couture)

Keith - Doughty
Pietrangelo - Weber
Subban - Letang
Bouwmeester

Price (Will be a monster)
Luongo
Brodeur

And yes, I hate that we have 5 RHD, even without Seabrook, "The leader of leaders"

Alfredsson will be happy to hear this, now Zetterberg can keep his promise & get him on the Swedish team.

You can fly to Sochi with Canada biggest names or with a team, who can actually win.
The Russians? They better hope Home Ice is to their advantage...because they are bringing the same team to Sochi that got bounced in 2010. Their new additions or improvements to the 2010 team, if you can call it that are Bobrovski, Tarasenko maybe Kuzentsov. There's some doubt he even makes it. Who has to worry more? The team that has yet to win an Olympic gold since the pros got involved or the team that has won 2 of the last 3. And FYI pal, the 2002 Olympic gold was on big Olympic size ice. And over the past 10 years no team has won more gold on big ice than Canada at all IIHF events. so, no... big ice has nothing to do with it.

Neal - Crosby - Giroux
Stamkos - Tavares - St. Louis
Nash - Getzlaf - Perry
Staal - Bergeron - Toews

It will be a travesty if Marty isn't on this team. One of the best ppg players the past decade and can still skate like the wind. I like Neal as my dark horse. We need goal scorers in this tourney and he and Sid already have chemistry.

Reminds of the movie Spanglish and the scene between Adam Sandler and Paz Vega (so hot in this movie btw) in the beach house. Adam Sandler makes a point then she's like 'you're right' and he's dumbfounded that she just gave up her stance so easily.

Team's don't have a choice. It's the players choice (if chosen) to play for his Country!

No difference, weather playing an NHL game or IIHF game wether someone get's injured!

And someday we will see a KHL vs NHL game too!

I really love Spezza, one of my favs, but I really don't think he takes Bergeron's spot... TC already has Crosby/Giroux/Tavares to play Spezza's role so Bergeron is there as a shutdown defensive guy that can score and win faceoffs, which is why he'll be there over Spezza, IMO

Top to bottom, no other country is in the same universe as Canada's D. Wow. Too bad EK hasn't forsaken his homeland yet.
