Mccabe is on the taxi squad isnt he? I presume it will be him.
McCabe is on the Taxi squad and will replace Jovo, a replacment for Neids is probably Phanuef or Boyle, Maybe Hannan.
Phaneuf is the runner up who should be named to the taxi squad if Nieds goes down
the other guys listed have no business on team canada
I say pick Boyle. That way we could have 4 players off the 17th place Tampa Bay lightning.
What are you talking about?
he's pissed they picked stlouis/richards/lecavalier in spite of their lackluster play this season
McCabe is the obvious replacement for Jovanovski.
Debating that would be ridiculous. McCabe should have been on the team before Jovanovski, but since that's no longer the debate it's best to drop it.
McCabe is the best choice for bringing an offensive replacement, as we all know Jovo wasn't going to be the anchor on D.
Phaneuf for Niedermayers spot though if it becomes available. Hannan to the taxi.
i mean that its ridiculous that Lecavalier, St. Louis, Richards are all on the team.
i just want to add to the ridiculousness by adding another one in Boyle.
i think Tampa sits about 17th overall in the league this year.
....i type too slowly...
hmmm, i dont know, i mean the very fact that the NHL continues to participate in the olympics to showcase the pros, and with the emerging young stars in the league today, they should give him the spot. He's all fresh and new and everyone loves that so there you go.
All they need now is for someone upfront to go down and here comes Sid the kid, i can see the promo commercials now.
Ok... Tampa is 15th, first of all... and according to your logic...
Columbus is 26th in the league... Kick off Foote and Nash...
Florida is 24th in the league... Kick off Luongo...
Toronto is 18th in the league... Kick off McCabe...
Phoenix is 17th in the league... Kick off Doan...
I think you are missing his point. Tampa isn't alot better than most of the teams listed right now but have 3 and possibly 4 (Boyle) guys playing on team Canada. I think most people outside of Tampa are wondering how St. Loius is on this team over Staal or Spezza. St. Loius looks like the poster boy for a "1 year wonder" campaign right now.
I totally agree... St. Louis has to step up. Staal and Spezza deserve to be Olympians.
you obviously misunderstand my logic. (although feel free to kick Doan off as well)
fanoof and mccabe
J-bo has more experience playing on the bigger ice.
Plus he won the "Defensemen" tournament award at the 2004 IHWC.
Not such a bad idea actually.
Phaneuf is a beast and a spot on the taxi squad could be huge to his development. Oh, and he can already play the level too if forced into the lineup.
Well McCabe will replace Jovo. But if Nieds doesnt go then I would put J-bo out there. I mean have you seen the way the guy can skate? He skates just as good if not better than Niedermayer and he's no defensive liability either out there. Then I would put Phaneuf on the taxi squad. But seriously I hope Nieds isnt injured at all, we need a recent Norris trophy winner on there.
Exactly. That's a very flawed little theory on Mr. Carrot's part.
Go Boyle! (especially if it will produce more moaning and groaning)
I picked Phaneuf, I believe with McCabe's injury he will not go as well.
i dont' want mccabe on this team even more than i didn't want jovanovski...
