    finally every team has an excuse in case of a loss :

    Nieds and Jovo didn't play for Canada
    Naslund didn't play for Sweden
    Berg didn't play for Finland :sarcasm: ... of course I meant Kiprusoff and Lehtonen
    Fedorov and Khabibulin didn't play for Russia
    Palffy didn't play for Slovakia
    Elias and Havlat didn't play for the Czechs
    Chelios is too old :sarcasm: ... or Ryan Miller didn't play for the USA

    :D

    I say it'll be a good idea to get the knee fixed, I don't give a damn about team Canada, just want him to be 100% for my Ducks.

    No excuses so they should go into the medal round, correct? :eek:

    This makes the Olympics more competitve. Now Canada will only win by 5 goals every game, not 7.

    With those human turnover machines Blake and McCabe back there, you better count on scoring 12 goals a game.

    No, Michael Hackert (signed by the Red Wings this summer, played in AHL, but returned to Germany) broke his jaw ... Jesus, we do have an excuse if we do finish last ;-).

    The geniuses on Hockey Central failed to note that the MRI showed more swelling, but the important thing is whether doctors feel he will be doing more damage by playing on it. So far the understanding is no.

    Niedermayer is gonna take all of those into account in deciding what to do. I still have a feeling he will go.

    If he doesn't, its a big loss but at the same time, Canada lost a lot of big D for the World cup and still won. Although the big ice will need a Niedermayer more than ever, I wouldnt mind Boumeester getting the call (with McCabe riding the pine obviously)

    Yep, Bouwmeester has been amazing on the big ice surface and should get the call if Nieds can't go.

    I second the Jay Bouwmeester nod.

    He's been quietly getting better and better as the season progressed and now he's starting to put up the points as well. Two more tonight and a +1.

    He was arguably the 2nd best Dman for Canada at the World Cup last year ahead of guys like Redden and Jovo. And on the big ice surface, he would be my first choice from among the replacements hands down!!!

    Jovo got injured in exhibition and didn't play a meaningful game. I think its the reason Canada won

    Quinn had a Brewer-Jovo pairing which was gaurenteed for one goal against every game

    Does'nt look good really.

    And of course they have to have had this set in stone taxi squad thing so McCabe get's on.They better make this next fill in the right one.
     
  17. As a Devils fan I'm very sad to hear about Scott's knee. Maybe his mommy can fix it.
