In case you missed it, Greg Wyshynski finally got up to the Devils on Puck Daddy's list of NHL United Nations. I thought most of it was good. Outside of Marty and Elias for Canada and the Czech Republic, he made some tough choices among the other notables. Here's the full article for those curious.


I think Madden deserved a mention under Canada due to winning two Cups. He replaced Holik and was instrumental along with Pandolfo and Langenbrunner in '03. Speaking of which, no mention of your former captain either. Even if he left on poor terms, Langer was solid. I might've gone Mogilny over Kovalchuk. I liked Greg's choice of Rafalski over Gomez/Parise. B-Raf didn't leave the same way and formed that dynamic duo with Stevens.

No Bobby Carpenter love?


I thought he did a few things as the first us born players.  Completely changed his game at the end to become a shut down player.  Maybe he forgot his overall career


Major oversite if you ask me.

I'm not sure how Sergei Brylin isn't his choice for Russia. The only forward to win all three cups with the team.

I thought Fetisov was a shoe-in for the Russian spot, personally.
