Not to rehash the Olympic Roster debate, but I'm sure there were more than a few players who didn't make the team based on their previous enthusiasm for the program.

I heard on either Oilers Lunch or Just a Game that the Flames have basically done nothing for that team and that's why all three of their defencemen weren't included.

I have to ask what does a NHL team have to do for the program?

That'd be unbelievably petty considering Bouwmeester has played 37 games for Team Canada in previous events.

You guys are being hard on MacTavish. Should be interesting to see what he can do with a talented team... he's a good coach.

You're either completely mis-quoting what they said or else they are complete idiots. I'm gonna assume the former. JayBo not being picked had nothing to with the Flames, he played for Canada at the olympics before. Also think about what you are saying. If the Flames have been so harsh on the program why would Iginla make the team.

Penner should be on the team. Maaaaybe one of Brule/Gagner. Other than that no Oilers on team Canada.
