Team Canada

If Canada's Olympic Hockey Team Was Picked Now...

Seena LikeaContributor IDecember 22, 2008

In 2010, Canada is going to want to win the gold medal more than in previous years, as they are playing in their own country. Canada won back in 2002, but followed with a lack-luster performance in 2006.

I think that in 2010, Canada will want a quicker, younger, puck moving team that can be flashy, aggressive, and most importantly, get the job done. Right now, If I were to pick the team, this would be it.
