With the announcement of the USA Olympic men’s hockey team roster this week, it sparked me to think: I haven’t gotten many texts about team Canada’s roster…and cue the texts. A group text with two of my friends gave way to the three of us revealing our proposed rosters, a $20 bet and my commitment to post all three rosters. I will preface this by saying this is who we think will be on the team.
Kunitz\Crosby\Stamkos – Sharp\Toews\Benn – Perry\Thornton\Getzlaf – Couture\Tavares\Giroux – St. Louis\Bergeron
Keith\Seabrook – Subban\Pietrangelo – Weber\Doughty – Bouwmeester
St. Louis\Giroux\Stamkos – Couture\Crosby\Marleau – Perry\Tavares\Getzlaf – Bergeron\Toews\Sharp – Duchene\Benn
Keith\Subban – Bouwmeester\Pietrangelo – Weber\Doughty – Boyle

Always a fun process. If anyone is wondering why none of us have Hall on our teams – it’s because he is too young, immature and toe drags across the opposition blue line will end up in the back of our net. He does bring an element to the table of a game-changer. If he was on the taxi squad, we would not be shocked. But, doubtful for us he makes the main roster.
