----/\ _\ -----------||//---//--\\---\\----//----\\//
[ ----\__--\__ =----||--\\--\\//------\\//-------||
In no specific order:
Also in no Particular order
Jagr (I think he will cary his dominance)
Sakic (Will lead by example)
Lecavalier (Has shown recent international success)
Heatley (Will continue to roll)
Ovechkin (I think he has something to prove)
Lidstrom (I am pretty sure he is playing and he has been good this year)
Tkachuk (Sorry about the spelling, not sure if it is right, but if he is healthy, I think he can do well)
Forsberg (If he plays)
Jokinen (Will play well for Finland)
Modin (He looked very good in recent international play)
EDIT: No order...
I know you guys will probably call me a homer for this but I think that Mats Sundin should be in the top 10 in scoring in the olympics. He always does great in these kind of tournaments and he is starting to get hot now 12 pts in his last 10 games.
1. CAN Joe Thornton 2g 7a 9pts
2. RUS Ilya Kovalchuk 6g 2a 8pts
3. CAN Dany Heatley 4g 4a 8pts
4. CZE Jaromir Jagr 5g 2a 7pts
5. RUS Alexander Ovechkin 5g 1a 6pts
6. SWE Daniel Alfredsson 3g 3a 6pts
7. SVK Marian Hossa 4g 2a 6pts
8. FIN Teemu Selanne 5g 0a 5pts
9. CAN Joe Sakic 3g 2a 5pts
10. SVK Pavol Demitra 1g 4a 5pts
1. CZE Dominik Hasek 1.67 GAA
2. CAN Martin Brodeur 1.75 GAA
3. SWE Henrik Lundqvist 1.80 GAA
4. CAN Roberto Luongo 2.00 GAA
5. RUS Evgeni Nabokov 2.10 GAA
I'll go with (no order):
So you are saying that Hasek is going to average 78 per game? And Henrik Lundqvis 72. lol
I'll pick Joe Thornton as the leading scorer btw. Nash will have the most goals.
I'd guess that the leading scorers for the respective teams will be as follows:
USA:Modano? Maybe Cole?
Russia: Ovechkin or Datsyuk
Slovakia: too tough to choose. Probably Demitra or Hosssa. I'll pick Nagy as the wild card. If Palffy was playing (and was healthy obviously) I'd definetely pick him
In no particlur order of course!
Svatos (Just to be a little different from everyone else)
And just for the h*ll of it since he's part of the host country's team:
AnthonyTuzzolini (plays for Modo)
How about top scorers by team?
CAN - Thornton (time to establish himself as the #1 center in Canada)
SWE - Alfie (Heckuva player and will probably get loads of ice time with no Naslund and most likely no Forsberg either)
RUS - Ovechkin (I'd pick Kovalchuk if I thought he had the same determination as Ovechkin, but I've never seen him show up for a big game)
CZE - Jagr (Realistically, but I'm tempted to be a homer and say Hemsky ).
SVK - Gaborik (I wanted to pick someone other than Hossa or Demitra, and Gaborik has a lot of speed and should be able to use the big ice to his advantage)
USA - Modano (Re-establishes himself as the best American player in the world)
FIN - Koivu (Good skill and lots of heart, he should put up points against anybody)
Forsberg(if he plays)
In no particular order either.
