Yzerman doesn't like "the french."

I wouldn't call Finland a joke, especially with Rask in net. Also have no idea how you can call the Czechs a joke.

Yzerman left off Couture, St Louis, Boyle, and Thornton. Ouch.

Boyle had no chance. Not as good as he was before. St. Louis scored but doesn't do much else. Thornton is like Spezza. Couture is hurt.

The only guy from SJ I thought would actually make the team is Couture. As I mentioned earlier, apparently you can name injured players and then replace them pre-tournament if they are not ready to go...like what they are doing with Stamkos.

You gotta do that with a Top 3 player in the world. Couture, whatever, you can replace him, and you can't take the chance on him.

If Couture is healthy come February, should he not be on the team? If he's not healthy, just take the next guy in line at that point. This would've given Team Canada flexibilty to make a selection closer to the start date instead of a month before hand.

they obviously contacted the SHarks and the docs and he won't be healthy

well nevermind because Lebrun said they didn't care about health...but Couture is replaced easily anyway

Smells of Yzerman being more concerned for his Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jagr and Nedved. Jagr has been reduced to a PP specialist. How is he going to do against 20 year olds on Olympic ice? Nedved? I didn't realize he was still skating.

Michalek hasn't been good this year. At all.

Elias, Hemsky -- they'd be on Canada-3 team.

No time to get back into playing shape.

"Playing shape." Take a hike. His hand is hurt. He'll be able to do plenty of exercise and keep his cardio going.

Hopefully these guys are ready for the big ice. Should give the super stars more room to do their thing.

Third Olympic selection for:
 - Luongo
 - Nash

Turin, Vancouver and now Sochi.

Bouwmeester was part of the 2006 Turin team but not the 2010 Vancouver team due to sucking large that season.
