The physical differences between the players are far too big to allow it.

I would just like to add that these rosters should definitely be posted with player pictures on them.

If e.g. Canada and USA were allowed to hit against some of the smaller countries, those countries would run out of players. When you have two teams that are trained like pros and generally bigger than the others, it wouldn't be a pretty sight against smaller, less physically trained amateurs.

Polling for team Canada, but man... the Americans really have some beautiful players on that team. I'm serious.

I don't think that's necessarily a good excuse but I do see your point

If womens hockey wants to survive to see another olympics, a repeat of 2006 is needed where someone upsets Canada or the US. (Sweden got silver)
Canada/USA 1-2 and Sweden/Finland 3/4 is getting old

Russia beat Finland for the bronze medals at last year's World Championships and Finland upset the USA in a tournament this season.

If I remember right there was talks of Sweden not sending a team because we sucked too much? Anyone knows if we did end up sending a team?

Emma Terho (formerly Laaksonen) debuted in the Olympics when she was just few months over 16. She could in theory play in 6 or 7 Olympics.

I think that this is the United States gold to lose. As many have speculated, I have heard from a couple of people close to Dan Church that he quit because he wasn't able to pick 'his' team aka cutting Wickenheiser and Hefford.

It seems like that didn't go over well as HW is the face of womens hockey in Canada even though she has clearly lost a step or three over the years. It's these older players still 'living the dream' that are the problem with the womens team and the difference between the US and Canada as they refuse to step aside and let younger players get a shot.

Seeing those two and Ouellete on the ice for the final 90 seconds of the last game against the US over players like Johnson, Wakefield and Agosta left me shaking my head.

IIRC Florence Schelling (Actual swiss goalie) started playing with NT at 13 and played a few games in 2006 at 15

Not really roster related but I didn't know where else to put it, here's the blog of British referee Joy Johnson who will be working the women's tournament, I thought some people might find it interesting to read about her "Road to Sochi"

http://joyinsochi.blogspot.se/?m=1

It's her 3rd Olympics and I'm proud to say that I once worked a game alongside her as a linesman here in the UK

Kinda like Torey Krug taking a hit from say, Dustin Brown? Gotta say I find it insulting and ignorant of you to think that just because someone is female, they are somehow less able to 'bounce back up' as any other hockey player would.

You could even include Dempsey in that argument on the US side. One thing that is unfortunate with the Women's game - unlike the boys/men, the "politics" never end on the Women's side.
