The 2014 Winter Olympics are now just over two months away. Anticipation is growing throughout the hockey world. Team Canada faces extra pressure to defend its 2010 men's gold medal after failing to do so after the team's last victory in 2002.
There's been plenty of speculation about which Canadians will make the final cut for Sochi, but very little concrete information.
Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock told the Canadian Press on Monday that his group is in no rush to make its final decisions. “The best thing about it is the media wanted us to announce the team in August or even here today, but that’s not going to happen. We’re going to take all the time we can and we’ll see what happens.”
Canadians will have to wait another month until that announcement is finally made. In the meantime, here's a stock report on some players currently hovering on or around the roster bubble.
