I figure with all the rosters announcements and the olympics approaching we should get this going

 

Bunch of shockers already...

 

No Ryan/Yandle on team USA, No Hudler on the czech teamTallinder made the swedish team over Hedman... etc etc

 

Can't wait to see the canadian roster, here's my guess

 

Benn - Crosby - Stamkos
Sharp - Toews - Nash
Couture - Getzlaf - Perry
Bergeron - Thornton - Tavares

E. Staal - Kunitz - Giroux (added an extra forward, sue me)

Keith - Seabrook
Bouwmeester - Pietrangelo
Doughty - Weber
Vlasic - Subban

Price
Luongo
Smith

It'd be a travesty if Rick Nash made the team over some of the other possibilities.

But hey I'm rooting for the USA so I hope he makes it!

Just so every other nation knows: Jimmie Ericsson, a pretty good SHLer is pegged to centre our checking line who Mårts wants to match against top lines. Congratulations on winning against us.

 

And Tallinder over Hedman is pretty effing bad.

Bet my friend $5 the USA doesn't medal. I'm hoping I'm a little poorer but I hate how the roster was constructed.

Its an impressive feat by Ericsson to be the only non NHL player on team sweden. As usual i will be cheering for team Sweden for the gold.

Oh man Canadians are mad.

Please. Let 'em be mad, they act like the gold medal is their birthright these last few years. If anyone should be mad it's us, with that sh!tbag of a roster. The Canadians will still medal with that squad.

You're not pissed about guys like Carter, Kunitz and Nash over Giroux and St. Louis, and a guy like Brent Seabrook missing on defense?

"@APetrielli: Team B- Hall-Giroux-St. Louis; Couture-Thornton-Staal; Neal-Seguin-Skinner; Kane-Richards-Ladd; Letang-Dion; Campbell-Boyle; Gio-Seabrook."

Couture - Thornton - Ladd

Skinner - E.Staal - Neal

Lucic - Seguin - Iginla

Richards - J.Staal - Little

Letang - Boyle

I wish I could trash talk back with any confidence, but your B team would kick the sh!t out of our main squad. Truth.

Well not really, those are all still good players who can make a difference, they are not players who could hurt us. Plus they might not all play, still 2 guys left on the bench

I can't believe Joe Thorton didn't make it, he's still one of the best setup men in the league

I think some real laces would make a massive difference. Those fake reflective strips look SO BAD.

Yeah I don't envy yzerman or hockey canada they're damned if they do and damned if they don't in just about every player... Yes their b squad is a gold medal favorite. The only guy I think they made a mistake on was Nash, IMO St. Louis was a better option.

And I kind of like the Swiss and Sweden jerseys (you can't even call them sweaters lol) but other than that they're pretty bad.
