    TEAM CANADA PICKS

    Who do you think Steve Yzerman picked for the 2010 team Canada or who would you pick?

    What would your team Canada lines look like?

    These are the players that were invited to training camp this summer...

    Goaltenders: Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, Marc-Andr? Fleury, Steve Mason, Cam Ward

    Defense: Jay Bouwmeester, Dan Boyle, Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger, Robyn Regehr, Dion Phaneuf, Marc Staal, Shea Weber, Fran?ois Beauchemin, Brent Burns, Drew Doughty, St?phane Robidas, Mike Green, Dan Hamhuis, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook.

    Forwards: Sidney Crosby, Shane Doan, Simon Gagn?, Dany Heatley, Jarome Iginla, Rick Nash, Joe Sakic, Martin St-Louis, Eric Staal, Joe Thornton, Vincent Lecavalier, Ryan Smyth, Jeff Carter, Ryan Getzlaf, Milan Lucic, Patrick Marleau, Andy McDonald, Brenden Morrow, Corey Perry, Mike Richards, Derek Roy, Patrick Sharp, Jordan Staal, Jonathan Toews, Dan Cleary.

    *NOTE* Just cause a player wasent invited to training camp, doesent rule them out 100% of not being on the team...

    Have fun!

    • Sakic captain.........cmon canada

    • can someone please explain to me my the hell marc savard wasnt invited???? because he deserves it and is 100% better than jordan staal and jonathon toews.

    • Here are the players who I think are locked in to this team so far

      F - Crosby, Iginla, Nash, Getzlaf, Heatley, Perry, and Doan.
      D - Pronger, Boyle
      G - Brodeur, Luongo

      These are the guys that couldn't play themselves off the team if they tried. Perry and Doan don't seem to be on everyone's list but I can assure you that they are going to be there.

      There are clearly a lot more questions on defense but based on performance and experience I believe you have to pair up Keith, and Seabrook. They have been remarkable this year and are looking good to be selected. Other D I think are Bouwmeester, and Weber. Neidermayer is the popular choice but I think it will come down to either him or going with youth in Doughty. Many think Neidermayer is only playing this year so that he could play in the Olympics and has proven that he can still play, but it's possible that it comes down to a decision like that.

      The most notable not on the list is dprobably Penner. Where he would have been a shoe-in if the Olympics were two years ago his play in Edmonton got him right off the list. But his play this year has proven that he should be there at least as an alternate and I think he gets the nod. Brad Richards, and Stamkos also get consideration as the 13th forward

      The other forward positions come between. St.Louis, Thornton, Marleau, Lecavalier, Smyth, Carter, Morrow, M.Richards, Stamkos, Toews, and Sharp. I think that Thornton, Marleau, Richards, and Carter have played themselves on this team indefinitely. If Penner is on this list I think that makes Morrow's likely role unnecessary. Smyths unfortunate injury might make him a difficult choice but he gets the nod as an alternate. The rest is too difficult for me to call right now, maybe in a couple weeks.

      • Here's who I think are on the team for sure

        F- Crosby, Thornton, Getzlaf, Perry, Heatley, Iginla, Nash, M. Richards and Carter

        Those of you throwing Penner's name out there have got to be kidding. So hes played a good 27 games. All of a sudden his name is in a discussion of the best players in Canada? We could field two teams and I don`t think I would have him on either.

        I would like to see Brad Richards get consideration though. He's a proven big game player (see Conn Smythe) and is having a great year. I am admittedly a biased stars fan... So realistically he won't make the cut.

        D - Niedermayer, Pronger... there are so many options here I really don't even know if these are safe. But Niedermayer is a likely captain so I think he's in. And Pronger is too good to not make the team.

        Boyle, Doughty, Keith, Seabrook, Phaneuf, Bouwmeester, Green, Weber are all good picks.

        Interesting that most of these guys are from the Western Conference. Maybe I missed a few from the East.

        G - Brodeur (starts), Luongo, Fluery.

        Goalies seem to be pretty much locked up. Ward is injured and played himself off the team anyway. S. Mason has been pretty poor. Osgood less than spectacular and also battling injuries.I actually heard someone on TSN throw Turco's name into the mix. Even as a stars fan, I say that is a bad idea. I still don't trust him after last year's inconsistent play. Another name they mentioned was Chris Mason. I doubt it, but I guess I never watch the Blues so I really don`t know.

    • Goalie:
      Brodeur
      Luongo
      Fleury

      Defense:
      Pronger, Boyle
      Keith, Doughty
      Bouwmeester, Weber

      Crosby, Nash, Iginla
      Thornton, Heatly, Toews
      Getzlaf, Carter, St Louis

      D: Green, Weber, Pronger, Niedermayer (C), Bouwmeester, Keith (Seabrook)
      G: Brodeur, Luongo (Fleury)

      - Players in brackets are backups
      - There are a few Centers on the Left Wing, if you check how many centers are on that roster, you'll understand why.
      - I wanted to include both the Richards as well, but they just didn't fit into the roster

      ? Patrick Marleau, Dany Heatley,
      Steven Stamkos, (it will be Shane Doan)
      John Tavares.(it will be Ryan Smith if healty)

      Good mention to: Ryan Smith, Shane Doan, Branden Morrow,

      Defense (7) Drew Doughty, Scott Niedermayer, Shea Weber,
      Dan Boyle, Dion Phaneuf, Jay Bouwmeester,
      Chris Pronger.

      I am sure I forgot some good players but this is my team. Young and talented with new guys like Stamkos and Tavares on third line!

      • Tavares will definitely not make this team. He is a rookie, and although he has proven that he can compete with the big boys, there is no place for him in a tournament like this at this stage in his career. This is not the world juniors anymore and he would get punished. He is a good player (a damn good player) and will compete with the Crosbys and Ovechkins of the league for years to come but he doesnt get the spot this year. Not with the talent and experience at this level that would have to get left behind.

        And why do you pick 15 forwards, its a 23 man roster so are we going with no goalies?

      • Carey Price won't come anywhere close to making the team. There are a lot of Canadian goalies with far more International experience and in many cases, a Stanley cup championship ring as well.
