    I am just not a fan of this team at all...I think we should have had a few different players there:

    Cogliano - Latendresse - Boyd
    Pouliot - Bolland - O'Marra
    Toews - Bertram - Comeau
    Downie - Pyatt - Chipchura

    Bourdon - Parent
    Barker - Pokulok
    Staal - Letang

    Dubnyk
    Pogge

    I do think Cogliano will be the leading scorer for Canada, this guys speed and shooting ability is the best on Canada.

    This team is built for next year.

    I expect the team to be as good as it was in 2004.

    Canada does not build team's for next year. They take the best team available. If it's as good as it was in 2004 they have a great chance to win gold. If Fleury doesn't collaspe in the third they would have won gold.

    One thing that worries me is that the Russians and the Americans, both have strong lineups.

    I don't know why people don't like this lineup. They have a good group of forwards and the best defence in the tournament. Pogge is playing excellent. They also have ten first round picks on this team.

    Canada's lineup wasn't going to be great even with the players that some people believe should be on the team instead , I think that a lot of people knew that going in.

    Just curious but why do you have Pogge listed as the backup.
     
  6. I think it is a solid Lineup, but i think they are doing both things(trying to win and get ready for next year). Defence looks amazing, Pogge has just been hot, only problem i could see is scoring but if we can get that then we should be in the final game unless something goes ridiculously wrong....i Cant wait to see USA self destruct once again...did they not learn last year about too many egos??? GO CANADA!!!

    Weird line-up for sure. Latendresse at center with Cogliano, his linemate, being a natural center is kind of strange, although Guillaume did play at center at the Ottawa rookie tournament in August. O'Marra on the second line? He's expected to be the 13th forward. Chipchura on the fourth line? As the team's captain, I truly hope he will play a bigger role than just being a grinder on the energy line. Dubnyk as the starter? That's the biggest joke of them all.

    The Caps fan in me would have liked to see Schultz paired with Pokulok. But at least one of them made the team
     

  10. Wishful thikning i guess...They should win as long as Walt can keep them in check..
