    Should've been St. Louis instead of Nash, Seabrook instead of Hamhuis, and Letang/Boyle/Campbell/Giordano instead of Subban.

    Why not Subban? Especially when you're bringing up Letang as a better alternative.

    I'm fine with Subban but no Giroux, St. Louis or Seabrook? Huh?

    I feel real bad for St.Louis! He may be old, but he ain't slow and he's carrying Tampa on his back without Stamkos. Imagine him playing with Stamkos???????

    Botom line, we could field 2 Team Canada's and there would still some great players left off!

    Seabrook wasn't good last olympics. There are way better options on the big ice.

    Yeah Seabrook doesn't belong in the conversation.

    Would have preferred Brent Burns over Marleau, for another.

    Nash and Benn don't belong over St.Louis, Seguin, Hall or Giroux.

    Nash instead of St-Louis or Giroux is absolute highway robbery. I don't care if it's about size, those two are leaders and game-breakers and certainly don't play small. As for Nash well, he sucks right now. Makes no sense.

    Matt Duchene - Sidney Crosby - Steven Stamkos
    Patrick Marleau - Ryan Getzlaf - Corey Perry
    Rick Nash - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Sharp
    Jamie Benn - John Tavares - Jeff Carter

    Duncan Keith - Drew Doughty
    Mac-Edouard Vlasic - Shea Weber
    Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo

    Carey Price
    Roberto Luongo

    Is what I'd like to see, although I bet that Kunitz is there instead of Duchene which sucks.

    I agree with you, but I think in Nash's situation, they put a lot of weight on his international experience and ignored his slow start this season. He seems to thrive on the big ice and his numbers at the WC's are ridiculous. 34GP 23G 21A 44Pts. Plus, other than this season, Nash has put up 30 plus goals 6 years in a row. Not too shabby. And even after injury riddled, slow start this season, he's still on pace for 27 goals and 56 points (over an 82 game season). Not bad for an "off" season.

    Now that said, these arguments have all been based on stats. I haven't really watched Nash play all that much. Has he been trending in the right direction lately?

    Defense and goalies seem obvious.

    Keith - Doughty
    Bouwmeester - Pietrangelo
    Hamhuis - Weber
    Vlasic - Subban

    Price
    Luongo
    Smith



    Tricky to put the forward lines together. Not sure what they're envisioning.

    Kunitz - Crosby - X
    X - Getzlaf - Perry
    Nash - Toews - Sharp
    X - Bergeron - X

    l
    v

    Kunitz - Crosby - Stamkos
    Tavares - Getzlaf - Perry
    Nash - Toews - Sharp
    Marleau - Bergeron - Carter
    Benn - Duchene

    ?

    That 2nd line needs more speed. If it was up to me, Bergeron would extra at least to start and I'd go with

    Kunitz - Crosby - Stamkos
    Marleau - Getzlaf - Perry
    Tavares - Duchene - Benn
    Nash - Toews - Sharp
    Bergeron - Carter

    :dunno:
