On February 28, 2010, Team Canada won the Olympic Gold Medal with a dramatic overtime victory over the United States. Sidney Crosby was the hero of that game, scoring the winning goal (and one of the most significant goals in Canadian hockey history) 7:40 into overtime.
Two years have passed since that monumental game, and although Steve Yzerman will once again run the team, much else has changed. Sidney Crosby, who most would have assumed would be best player on the 2014 Olympic roster, is fighting to salvage his career.
Uncertainty about the 2014 Olympic team does not end with Crosby's status. For starters, NHL players may or may not be allowed to participate in the Olympic Games. In addition, like any Canadian national team, the country's tremendous depth of talent makes choosing the 2014 team a challenge. With that in mind, here is my projected 2014 Olympic Team.
