Both teams are loaded with Olympians. The Sharks top line all season, Joe Thorton, Patrick Marleau, and Dany Heatley along with defenseman Dan Boyle won gold for Canada with three Hawk players. Speedy center Joe Pavelski played with Patrick Kane on the U.S.A. team while three other Sharks played in the Winter Games as well.
Not sure I've heard Pav's ever described as speedy. Shifty, smart, anticipates, strong on the dot, Swiss Army knife....yes. Speedy? Nope. Kinda wonder if the writer has watched the team play?
