What would a Team Canada team be without a little controversy? My pick after watching him more closely is Rick Nash followed by Kunitz and then Jeff Carter

Crosby.

Everyone else that sucked were expected to suck.

I don't hate the way Crosby has been playing he has shown Urgency and speed to his game he has had chances and just cannot seem to finish.. Where as Nash doesn't do nothing doesn't produce chances, doesn't battle like a 6'4" 220 power forward should battle he just seems to get pushed over all the time.

I have actually enjoyed watching Crosby play so far

Crosby for sure. Expected a lot more from him.

Don't know why anyone would vote Tavares. He's looked like one of our top forwards.

Tavares having no points then getting hurt is kinda disappointing. Most importantly, they are all getting outscored by that fat tool from LA.

A lot of Crosby bashing for not scoring in the last Olympics, of course he scores the winner, and all is forgiven. Still, much of the continued criticism comes from Toes supporters, who's whole MO is to do nothing until the last minute. Jus funny.

St. Louis, IMO. I expected him to look like a man on a mission, but he's looked invisible in the games he's had.

Crosby hasn't been that bad.

I thought with St.louis's limited ice time he created quite a few chances. How many minutes was he getting per game 10 max? I am not worried about Sidney at all I have a good feeling he will score a goal or two against the Americans

The best player in the world has had two mediocre Olympics in a row now.

I think the ice time he's been getting is pretty warranted, though. All our other forwards have played a stronger overall game and doing more of the little things, Crosby included, IMO. Exceptions might be Kunitz/Duchene, but I wasn't expecting a whole lot from them.

I think Duchene is a bit too inexperience and quite enough.......maybe a more experience player would be a better choice......I think with JT gone, this is his chance to step it up

Kunitz has been total ****. I expected him to at least play well with Crosby.

Chris Kunitz but i expect him to suck. Crosby but he is sucking because he is stuck with Kunitz.

Crosby bashing has been ridiculous.

Last night on that PP he had about 3-4 nice passes that the other guys couldn't convert.

Frankly the team has not played like a team and its hilarious people think Crosby should some how do it on his own. Especially when hes getting the focus.

Crosby is at least getting chances and making things happen game in and game out which is more than can be said for pretty much every other forward.

Crosby is the obvious choice, so I'll go with Rick Nash. The is so good internationally and he's really busted this tourney.

Ever consider those passes were ultimately fumbled because they weren't all that "nice" to begin with? The problem with Crosby, is he refuses to simplify his game, which wreaks havoc on short-term chemistry, resulting in miscues when his linemates do not anticipate what he's going to do. I will say he looked better on the powerplay, but has otherwise looked mediocre.

To say Crosby is getting chances and no one else is disingenuous at best. It is no coincidence Carter, Benn, Bergeron and St. Louis have all looked better when they weren't paired with Crosby.

being that MSL is the only winger on canada who can think the game at near crosby's level, i really don't see why babcock wouldn't just put and leave them together in the early going, with a consistent LW, and force them to figure out how to play with each other. i'm not a rick nash fan at all, but he seems like the obvious pick for that LW spot.

the other lines i've mostly been happy with. benn/getzlaf/perry have been great, marleau/toews/carter have been fine. and the leftovers on the fourth line seem like good choices to cycle on the fourth line.

Crosby because the expectations for him are higher than anyone else, and rightfully so.

Only option on this poll should be CROSBY.

Guy has 80 pts in NHL so far and can't score a goal against Norway, Latvia and Austria!
