Scott Niedermayer 'C'
Chris Pronger 'A'
Sidney Crosby 'A'
Jarome Iginla 'A'
My take? Is there a such thing as "wrong" when selecting a Canadian Olympic team? Probably not. To me, I'm a little surprised at Boyle and Doughty on the backend, and I'm not 100% sold that Niedermayer is still top 7 when it comes to Canadian defensemen. Thought at least ONE Calgary Flame would make the blueline. Bergeron and Morrow could be "surprises" up front, but you need guys like that. Maybe a Morrow-Richards-Bergeron checking line? Not bad. Staal surprised me a little because he's having an off-year along with injuries. Likely Staal or Toews is the "13th forward", while the other might play the wing with Getzlaf and Perry. Assuming the San Jose line stays together, that leaves you wish Nash-Crosby-Iginla. Yikes.
This is a solid group, hopefully they can erase memories of Torino 2006! And hopefully just a month after a 6th straight World Junior Gold!
