    For me as a Blues fan this is good news, if the knee is only tweaked and he will be reeady for the start of the season.

    There's no way Bouwmeester should be on the team when there are other defensemen with more experience (including playoff experience) and better results over the last few years. This isn't USA basketball where players are chosen to sell jerseys and hype the NBA.

    I think Aucoin should be the replacement - because we'll need a big minutes man.

    It could be worse, Hal Gill could be on the Canadian team.

    Since it's on north american ice I agree, however if it was on international sized rinks Bouwmeester would have been quite possibly the best pick IMO.

    I always thought Bouwmeester would be the next in line, if another defenceman were to withdraw. But losing Pronger is a really big blow, so I think Aucoin should be seriously considered. He really doesn't get the respect he deserves.

    Canada's defense has definitely fallen behind Sweden's as the best in the tournament with this change.

    Bouwmeester is good, but Hannan is a joke in my eyes! Aucoin, McCabe and Stuart are much better defender!
     
  24. You know what, I'm STILL confident in Canada's defence. Pronger is a blow no doubt, but if we lose because of a couple of players withdrawing, what kind of team would we be?

    Too many of the replacement choices seem to be based on hype, either from the most recent playoffs, or from being considered a future star. There should have been more emphasis placed on experience and consistent performances over a longer stretch of time.
