Team Canada 2006

Sidney Crosby, Jay Bouwmeester, Paul Kariya, Brendan Shannahan, Patrick Marleau, Alex Tanguay, Curtis Joseph and Jose Theodore are the notable names LEFT OFF the final roster for the 2006 Canadian Team being send to Italy.

Goalies are Marty Turco, Marty Brodeur, and Roberto Luongo.

Forwards are Sakic, Iginla, Nash, Bertuzzi, Draper, Gagne, Doan, Heatley, Richards, St. Louis, Lecavalier, Smyth, and Thornton

Defenseman are Jovanovski, Niedermayer, Foote, Blake, Pronger, Redden, Regehr

Eric Staal, Jason Spezza, and Bryan McCabe are the 3 players to be on the "taxi squad" used for emergencies only.

I don't know if I like the Bertuzzi over Spezza, Crosby, etc. pick, but I love the Rick Nash pick.

Thoughts?

I pretty much called this whole roster. My only differences were Theodore instead of Brodeur, Briere over Smyth and Staal over Doan (but Staal's a "reserve"). I'm not surprised at all. Kids like Crosby will have their chance in 2010. Canada could have made three teams and took home a gold and bronze. I like the Finns and the Swedes a lot too. Not many surprises to me.

I would have switched Draper and Smyth with Spezza and Staal. Seeing those names as reserves makes me physically ill. That's one sick line-up.

I think Shanahan deserves to be there.

Hockey Canada stifles the Crosby-mania for a little while, knocking the kid down a few rungs. I like it. Now he can stay at home and yell at his mother about cleaning his room instead of chirping at the Olympic refs.

Well, I was hoping he goes back to Nova Scotia over the break.

Scary, but not surprising, that a Canada "B" team could easily take a medal.

WOW.

As an American, I'm a little nervous obviously, but excited nonetheless to see a team like that on the ice. SCAAAA-RY

I'd swap Rathje for McLaren and then completely agree with you. That top 6 destroys the US top 6, and it would be team 1b for Canada. Sickening.
