I thought the 3 goalies were a given. I'm really surprised Primeau didn't make it.

I actually agree with their selection on D to be honest.

McCabe had an amazing year dont get me wrong...but when push came to shove in the playoffs he practically fell apart like a kinder surprise with no toy inside. Regehr is a solid pick no doubt about that... and brewer just played very well for Canada as well.

go Canada go

McCabe is still leading in playoffs points for defensemen. He had one bad game. Never in my life have I seen a player judged so harshly from one bad game.

He had a few bad games... and points aren't indicative of a good defensemen. I'm not saying he's bad... he's great. But at this point in time I myself would have taken someone else as well.

As I said in the World Cup forum, should Brodeur be scrapped for having bad games against Philly in his first round series. McCabe had one horrible game and one game that was marked with an exclamation mark giveaway (which was not a bad descision, just a fanned pass).

Ya I've gotta agree with you. I would have been shocked if McCabe was selected given how poorly he played against Philadelphia.

very different situations... mccabe has had one good year, one poor year and now a great year no doubt about it. But he ended it off rather poorly. Brodeur was quite hurt during the entire philly series. And hes got his extremely amazing history to show in international competition.

Bottom line... mccabe out, regehr in...

Talk to Patrick Lalime if you want to hear about one bad game ruining a player's reliability.

Ok, so I have seen a player judged this harshly. But not many.

I feel for McCabe...but at the same time I don't think he'd do very well at the World Cup. He's just not at that point in his career. Too many mistakes when the pressure is high. He had a good year offensively, sure...but defensively? He's made more than a few mistakes and costly giveaways. Also, in the playoffs..did he really contribute to the Leafs? He was basically non-existant in the Sens series with the exception of I believe a 5 on 3 goal. Flyers series he was flat out bad.

Regehr on the other hand is one reason the Flames have made it as far as they have.

I agree McCabe should be in over Brewer...but he would end up being #8.

"Non-existant" one series, then "flat out bad" the next, but somehow he managed to score more than any other defender. Amazing.

He's a defenseman. You can be great offensively but suck defensively. Points don't tell a whole lot other than he's been fortunate to get a few assists or a PP goal or two (which is expected considering he played the full 2 minutes on the point). So yes, he was terrible defensively.

Half the stuff you post is 'Bull', bro. And yeah I do, as Redden was in the same situation in 2002.

The only thing i dont got a problem with is...WHY WASNT PRIMEAU A MEMBER!He has had an amazing post season...Hes one of the main reasons the leafs got beat out of playoffs....

About the D...I do think McCabe shoulda been there before Brewer...I think McCabe has way more to offer then Brewer...But the other side of it is...i do see why Brewer was choosen...Hes did quite good in the last 2 world championships....Other then that the D is fine

Your right , points aren't an indication of how good a defenseman is, but he wasn't "terrible defensively" in the Ottawa series.
