    Wonder if York goes. I imagine it will be tough to convince established NHL guys unless guys feel like they have a chance at the Olympics.

    They obviously have the deepest talent pool of all the countries so they can mitigate it better than everybody else but looks like Canada could be struggling to get commitments too.

    Not sure. Chris Drury is the GM.

    Canada is apparently taking Corban Knight. So this might just ultimately be the draw this year with Covid.

    If I was a GM for these teams I much rather take some younger non-NHL guys who might have a chance to play in a best on best tournament one day over these veteran non-NHLers though.

    Now we can see if it was coaching or regression.

    Maybe this will help him find himself. Pretty hard to do that in a system designed to leave defensemen high and dry.

    They surprisingly got a good goaltending trio under these circumstances. It would be pretty solid even under normal standards.

    The defense is brutal though. The forward at least have some talent in Garland, Robertson, & Labanc.

    I hope Robertson's back is strong.

    Looking at the overseas rosters & they’re just as bad relatively speaking compared to the North American ones.

    I think you have to quarantine for a certain amount of time prior to joining the teams so not sure how many reinforcements will be coming.
