    Your dream 2010 Canada lines

    Post by Riprock on Wed Aug 13, 2008 3:00 pm

    A little early, I know, but just to get some ideas flowing and some discussion going in a different direction. Post your dream lines for the 2010 Team Canada lines:

    Here's my team:

    Lecavalier-Crosby-St. Louis
    Nash-Getzlaf-Heatley
    Morrow-Thornton-Iginla
    Kariya-Richards-Doan
    Spezza

    Burns-Schenn
    Bouwmeester-Phaneuf
    Green-Weber
    Seabrook

    Luongo
    Leclaire
    Ward

    A little unusual forward selection - added Doan for experience and defensive skills, same with Richards (not to mention the offense he provides), and Kariya as the hometown boy with the experience and speed.

    Kept the dominating line of Nash/Getzlaf/Heatley together.

    Lecavalier moves to wing for Crosby because he's not the best draw man and to keep him with St. Louis.

    Morrow/Thornton/Iginla is a powerful checking line.

    Spezza is a reserve (I know he is very good and was in t op 10 in points yet again, but until he plays a more rounded game he's a reserve - not to mention the abundance of centers).

    Paired an offensive d-man with a defensive one. Went with youth here as you see.

    Luongo is a good pick, but his loyalties come to question. Leclaire and ward both have the IIHF experience and they are young. Our goalies of the future.

    I like it for the most part but I'd say by 2010 that Spezza will definitely be a major part of that lineup and probably bumps Richards if a Center needs to go.

    I agree with the captain on this one.. i think spezza will move into a roll for the olympics. If the team had to be made right now i wouldn't involve spezza and roll with pretty much the same as you have right here, but for future i (once again fingers crossed) hope that spezza will be at the level to be in the top lines for the olympics, maybe get us a gold medal cuz right now we dont even have one in Beijing... while Phelps decides to break every record he can.

    Did you watch the relay? It was like Men against 12 year olds. It was almost embarassing to watch how purely dominant that US team was and in particular the sick lead Phelps started them off with.

    Nash-Getzlaf-Heatley
    Lecavalier-Crosby-Iginla
    Morrow-Spezza-Gagner
    Toews-Staal-Sharp
    St.Louis...(that's pretty bad, but there are so many young lads coming up that are going to be killer and take over the veteran's positions...IMO)

    on the defensive side...I'm not too sure...but something like this

    Bouwmeester-Phaneuf
    Green-Burns

    Phillips-Schenn

    and whoever else...I have no idea...

    This was tough...

    Goal

    Brodeur (for one last time)
    Luongo
    Leclaire

    They should test Phelps for dolphin DNA. I'm serious.

    As to the lines, there are too many young offensive players right now to predict this early. Although I'll go out on a limb and say that Kariya won't make the squad.

    haha yeah i know! The US beat the relay olympic record by about 4 seconds.

    Phelps had a -3.65 on the WR when he finished his 200m. Unbelievable.

    Yeah Kariya is unliely, but he's got the leadership and experience, plus was part of the teams Gold Medal victory in 2002.

    Spezza very well could be, but I added those guys because of their defensive abilities. I could have added Fisher for that matter.

    There are a tonne of young guys I left out, Towes, Gagner, Tavares... who knows if they will make it or where they could play.

    As I said there are way too many natural centers.

    if i would take anyone off the original list that was posted it would be Kariya. By the time those olympics roll around i think he will have hung up the skates for good.. maybe not but to ice the best team possible i just think that there are many more options than him that would fit better and give us a better shot at gold. but it is true that he has the leadership, and with a medal under his belt, maybe he could contribute alot... that being said i just hope Ringo doesn't make the squad cuz then i might have to start a riot on Elgin! lol

    Kariya was my hometown pick (since it will be in Van City) and Sakic, though he said would liek to play there, can't even decide about his year.

    Throw Spezza in for him then.
