That's pretty close, but on paper, Canada B takes it.

You forgot Lecavalier, Smyth, Burns, Fisher, Hamhuis, Sharpe. All were in the mix for Canada A.

USA would take it just based on goaltending. I wouldn't have any confidence in Team B's goalies.

Ah, forgot about them.

You could make an argument that Canada's 'B' and 'C' teams are both better than the US's 'A' team.

Maybe on paper but I think USA takes it to that Team B on the ice.

You'd think sinking like a rock in 2 of the 3 Olympics where "the best" were allowed to participate would have taught us just a little humility.

But no...here we go again taunting the Hockey Gods...

Here's a good idea, why don't we see if Canada A can even beat Team USA A in February, the game is played on the ice, not on paper.

Don't be surprised if Canada 'A' loses to USA.

With Miller in goal this team can play against anyone.

this is pretty much USA's B team. God Burke sucks

Now I get to hate him as a Sens fan, and as a US fan.

Please prove me wrong.

On paper: Team Canada "B" wins.

Unfortunately the Americans haven't even come close to replacing the core of the previous Americans (Hull, Modano, Roenick, Leclair, Tkachuk, Guerin, Lafontaine, Amonte, Weight). Miller better be able to stop grains of sand at this Olympics for them to have a prayer

But yeah I will add that when Canada plays them in the Olympics (both "A" teams in the round robin) that we ought to beat them or this thread looks a little silly

No competition bud. If Team Canada WJC doesn't get a runaway win against Team USA 'A', then it's only because we let the score get close.

But why stop there Team Canada from the Spengler Cup vs. Team USA 'A' Team

















Seriously though the arrogance by some Canadian fans is pissing me off.

Miller can handle 1 allstar, but i doubt he can handle 5 at a time... he's no Brodeur
