Team Canada has a new man at the helm, and he looks to right the ship, and that is just what he has done. This years' version of Team Canada is much stronger than in 2006, and will look to reclaim the gold medal.
Rick Nash – Sidney Crosby – Jarome Iginla
Dany Heatley – Joe Thornton – Patrick Marleau
Eric Staal – Ryan Getzlaf – Corey Perry
Brenden Morrow – Patrice Bergeron – Mike Richards
Shea Weber – Dan Boyle
Chris Pronger – Scott Niedermayer
Duncan Keith – Brent Seabrook
Forwards: (A+) They have huge scoring depth all the way down to the thirteenth forward. Realistically they could have made another contending team with the players Yzerman cut.
Defence: (A+) The Canadian defence is the best in the tournament, they host six of the top scoring defencemen in the league and the strongest defensive defencemen in the league.
Goaltenders: (A+) Any team that has Martin Brodeur has to be a frontrunner. Brodeur is the best goalie of all time, and will lead this team through the tournament.
Projected finish: Barring an unforeseen effort like last Olympics, the Canadians should win their second gold in three games.
