    hmmm....I wouldn't know whom to put there for the other two spots. I think it'd be between Spezza, Crosby, Lecavalier, and Lemieux. I'll go with Spezza and Crosby out of them two.

    Why are peolple putting Iginla? :dunno:

    As I heard, he sucks at shootouts. And that's what most Flames' fans think.

    Bourque...oops, I mean Richards


    Seriously though, having Bourque in the shootout and the best player in the history of the planet sitting on the bench still burns.

    You may be right - good thing the game between Canada and Russia will be over well before a shootout. :sarcasm:
     
  9. Malik isn't Russian.

    Dang.. I read that as Malkin.

    I think I need eyeglasses
     
  11. Bourque was a stupid choice. But in my opinion Gretzky wouldn't have been a very good choice either. By 1998, Gretzky had declined to nothing more than a 15-20 goal scorer. Plus, he was never good at breakaways to begin with.

    Yzerman should have been the player who took Bourque's spot in the 1998 shootout.

    What Gretzky had declined to is irrelevant.

    It was a sad moment to see the best player ever sitting on the bench while infinitely less talented individuals were given an opportunity.

    Lindros
    Shanny
    Yzerman
    Sakic
    Gretzky

    Unless I'm forgetting someone.

    I agree with most people, except this year I think you'd be crazy not to go with Gagne.

    with all the other talent that canada has, giving Crosby a shootout spot would be a waste.

    Lecavalier
    Staal
    Sakic
    Gagne

    5. Dany Heatley
     
  17. This would have the potential to be a Nagano-style debacle.

    If Canada used Scott Niedermayer in a shootout, and lost the shootout, then Scott Niedermayer would become the new Raymond Bourque.

    If Kariya makes the team (can't remember if he was on the long-list) he should be a lock for the shootout. I think he is 3/3 so far this year.

    Did you not see what Sid did under ALL that pressure as the final shooter in Montreal, his favorite team and in front of his parents?

    This kid lives for the BIG moments and can deliver when it matters! He has shown that he has knack for coming through when under a pressure cooker. Olympic shoot outs would be the perfect place for Sidney Crosby!
