Men's Hockey Team


Recommended Posts

Fans from Canada are talking about who will represent our team at the upcoming games. Everybody is bracing with excitement as Steve Yzerman will announce the roster at any time. It is up to him to choose our finest players in the NHL. It could be Simon Gagne or Dany Heatley. Maybe it could even be Sidney Crosby. I don't know when they will anounce it, but I heard that they will unveil their new uniforms. They will later set up camp as soon as it will be finalize. Their first game will play against Norway at 7:30pm Eastern Standard Time at GM place.

The coach will be named sometime this month, most certainly not until the NHL playoffs are over. The August development camp roster will be named on or around July 1st [Link].

The final roster announcement, ie the 23 players chosen, won't occur until well into the '09-'10 NHL season, most likely around November-December.

They better not screw-up like they did in Torino. :blink:

I don't think I would mind it if we finished twelfth in men's Hockey... I do like Hockey, but I hate that Canadians act like its the only sport that exists. We could win 85 golds and finish second in men's Hockey and some peoples would call the Olympics a failure. Thats the kind of attitude that prevents Canada from being a better sports nation...

Every country has that one sport, ours is Hockey, with many European countries its football. You ask any German what they would rather have 40 medals at the WOG or a World Cup, every one would say the World Cup.

Well, the Americans have the hottest goal-tending trio right now, and in a tournament that is enough to give yourself a good chance to get the gold. I am a bit surprised at how young the team is overall, tough.

Not really, the average GAA and SP are comparable (0.04 GAA difference in favour of Canada, 0.003 SP difference in favour of USA)

Didn't feel like doing the others, but I am pretty sure the Finns have the statistically best goal tending trio.
