That`s not surprising that`s unthinkable. Also it can raise his value (NaPalm). One way or another, it`s a good experience for both although I`m pissed again - it seems like Americans don`t give a dam **** about this tournament as usual. Canada is going to smack them if they make the prelims.
Methot will probably be a 7th defenseman, while two more for the third pairing will be added after round 1. Probably waiting for Doughty, Keith, Seabrook. One of those three will definitely be available
They're waiting for a starter from round one. Either Fleury outta PIT, or they're waiting for Ward's answer from CAR. Might also be waiting on Staal from CAR for that extra forward, in which case Vermette or Clutter might be a 13th forward.
I know about Backes and Oshie, but this is really pathetic.
Canada is going to win it all, I agree. And I can`t wait to see the on ice. If Wardo says no (I hope not), let Reimer be the starter. I like the guy, he deserves it for this season and I think he`d do well.
EDIT: No Stamkos please. I`d take Marty anytime, but Stamkos just sucks ATM. "Hey Jason, what you think of Stammer playing anything else than PS3?"
Wow, I didn't realise how desperate the US team was for warm bodies:
