    Crosby, Phanuef, Stewart, Bergeron and as all goalies must be valuable for a team to win whoever the hell starts for them.

    Nigel Dawes will be crucial to this team's success. His intensity is unmatched.

    Crosby up front, Phaneuf from the backend and of course, whoever the starting goalie is.

    The guy who buries a lucky loonie (or lucky coin of some other denomination) in the ice.

    :D


    Seriously though a case could be made for any number of players.

    I think the key for Canada will be guys like Colliton, Fraser, Ladd etc. It may be unfair to do so but I expect the scoring from guys like Dawes, Crosby, Bergeron etc. but it will come down to the smaller names picking up the important goals here and there.

    Clearly it will be the starting goalie. Canada is so deep upfront and on defense that even though his role may not seem huge it will be up to whoever gets the nod in nets to be there in the crucial moments or Canada could just blow everyone out of the water every game in which case id say Carter, Crosby and Richards.

    Considering that's the one position that may make or break the team.. I would agree. I think the forwards and the defence on team Canada is very solid and should perform well but if there a hole in the armour its in goaltending

    Sidney Crosby. This should be his coming out party. He has to prove his critics that he is indeed the superstar everyone has pegged him to be. If he doesn't lead canada in scoring or isn't on top of the tournament scoring at the end of the tournament, many people will doubt his abilities. This is best on best after all.

    Nigel dawes will definitely be another key player for team canada. The New York Rangers are very lucky to have this very skilled an talented player. Probably has the quickest release of any player in this tournament.

    Dion Phaneuf is the key to our defense. He can lead canada in many ways, with bone crushing hits and his big shot from the point. His strongest asset is probably his ability to easily contain forecheckers in the corner and push them to where he wants them to be.

    Patrice Bergeron is another Key player we have on our team. He has NHL experience that no other player can match, as well as a world championship experience.

    Canada's key players are: Crosby, Dawes, Phaneuf, and Bergeron.

    Phaneuf will be Canada's best player, but Crosby will be getting the most attention.

    Sidney can only play the role of a superstar if he is given that role.From: comments
    we have heard from Sutter;the fact the team is whl structured(coach players and style);Sidney playing wing instead of center, it does not look like he will be given
    that role.Superstars usually play 25-30 minutes a game.Crosby will play much less.

    Also,Stewart Richards and Dawes will probably be playing with Phaneuf so that
    is going to help their line.

    On defense Phaneuf and Weber will be the key.

    Up front the heat will fall on Crosby, Dawes and Stewart.

    These will be the top five players to produce.

    I think Patrice Bergeron will end up being the best player on the team, and probably the tournament as well.

    Exactly, I agree with this 100%

    Canada is so overwhelmingly stacked in offense and defense that the talent there will crush any team so it's up to the goalies.

    I'll go on record and say that Canada wins the gold if they get even above average goaltending from either goalie.

    I'm in agreement here too pepper,ultimately it will be the guy in the crease who will most decide whether we finish first,second or out of the medals altogether.
