    It appears that Pat Quinn and Co. will be executing a new strategy come the start of the Olympic hockey round robin. In order to give players rest for the 3 games of the actual tournament, (and I'm implying a wee bit here) everyone - every defenceman, for sure - will receive a break and sit out a game during round robin play.

    source:The Canadian Press (Toronto Star) - Canada preps for onerous puck schedule

    I think that this is a great idea, players will still see the ice ALOT within the round robin play,

    and therefore stay sharp and also allow plenty of time to gel as a team, as everyone will play with every other player at least 3 times, with the core remaining almost unchanged.

    The only question left is which one of the czechs is getting TROLLIED by a maurading Team Canada D-man?

    really wish that we were seeing phaneuf in that line-up. man there would be some highlight reel hits, this guy scores and hits consistently but still gets back to his end to cover up, who needs experience, although he does have recent international experience. it's just at the juniour level.
