    Thread renamed, post-press-conference talk starts from post #23.
    - Laituri

    ----------------------

    So the waiting, the debating, and the endless lists and projected rosters finally comes to an end...

    A press conference has been called for tomorrow to unveil the final WC roster.

    Heres hoping for McCabe :D (Cue another 5 page thread debating the Canadian defense core, just for nostalgia purposes)

    Fat Quinn will have his finger prints on this one. He'll make sure one of his overacheving whiners is on the team.

    If McCabe is on the team I will drink a Molson Canadian.

    PS: I cant stand that beer so it will be painfull.

    or better yet, a low carb beer.

    Do you really think it is necessary to say something stupid like this everytime the Leafs /a Leaf player is mentioned?

    More to a point, Quinn pretty much anointed Joseph his starter, and only until he blew up against Sweden did he make a change, a change that would help lead to the gold medal. You can look at that two ways:

    1) What on earth gave Quinn the idea to go with Joseph?

    2) Quinn had the humility to pull his guy and go with the best option for his country's chance to win.

    It will be interesting to find out who will be the team's 3rd goalie.

    If McCabe makes it over Redden then its clear that Quinn influenced the decision. Hopefully Gretzky won't fall for that and pick the real top 6 defenseman. :)

    If Brewer makes it I will seriously, seriously question Gretzky's integrity.

    There are plenty defenceman other than the ''locks'' more deserving than Brewer IMO:

    McCabe
    Redden
    Aucoin
    Regehr
    Hannan
    Stuart
    Souray

    You know who I think should be on the team? Craig Conroy and Keith Carney. What better way to do something good for their country than to suit up for Canada in the World Cup?

    I would think Theodore.. but since Quinn is the head coach there's no doubt in my mind Theodore's spot will be taken by Belfour.. and Belfour will obviously take the number one spot.. leaving Luongo the third spot with Brodeur as the back up..

    Theodore let's in soft goals left and right he had one fluke season.Hell most hab fans want to trade him and have Garon be the starter.Belfour has is a stanley cup tender and only Martin Brodeur is better at this point for Canada.(Im not sold on Luongo he wasn't that great at the World Championships)

    I think theres only 3 sure bets on the blueline (Niedermayer, Blake, Pronger) theres obviously going to be lots of upset Canadians when the homer picks arent chosen, IMO, Jovanovski, Regeher, Redden and Brewer will all be fighting for a spot or two. I dont think Foote will be named, I think Stevens will be named, and if hes not 100%, then Foote, Smith or a youngster might take his role. Heres my take on how it goes. (not what I want, but what i figure will happen)..

    Niedermayer
    Blake
    Pronger
    Stevens*
    Mccabe
    Redden
    Brewer
    Jovanovski

    Brewers international experience and success in major tournaments will likely help him here. I dont think he will be a top 6 guy, but he will make a good 7-8.

    From a swedish standpoint I would go with the exact lineup except for Stevens, too old and too injured. Regehr is a player that I haven´t seen enough of to make a judgement (they seldom show Calgary-games in Sweden) but I guess he´s close of making the team. Bouwmeester must be considered as well after his fine showing at the World Championships. McCabe is a questionmark as well, but then again Pat Quinn is the head coach.

    not that they dont deserve to be there, but i was surprised by the following selections:

    Doan, Marleau, Richards, Regehr, MALTBY, Morrow and Redden.

    lots of new blood !
