Name Team Canada and win stuff

[update: 12/30/2009, 11:44 AM]

Congratulations to A-Roc for guessing ALL 23 Team Canada players! Pretty damn impressive. We’ll send him the signed Ryan Kesler photo and the 2010 Men’s Olympic Hockey Team Guide.

Hockey Canada 2010

Team Sweden released their 2010 Olympic roster today, and to no one’s surprise, Henrik and Daniel Sedin were named to the team Former Canuck Mattias Ohlund is on the roster as well; current Canuck Mikael Samuelsson isn’t. Other Canucks still being considered to represent their respective countries include: Roberto Luongo (Canada), Ryan Kesler (USA), Christian Ehrhoff (Germany) and Sami Salo (Finland). (I’m not sure if Pavol Demitra is still in the running for Team Slovakia considering he has still yet to play a game this season.)

Team Belarus and Team Russia already released their rosters earlier.

Team Canada is scheduled to name their roster on Wednesday, December 30. That silence you hear is every Canadian dropping what they’re doing at 9:00 AM to see who Hockey Canada has named to carry the weight of an entire nation.

Anyway, because we’re all excited about this, Richard came up with this brilliant idea to hold a contest on this blog as to who can most accurately predict Team Canada’s roster. Here’s the deal:

  • In the comments section of this post, name the 23 players you think Steve Yzerman and company will name to Team Canada’s Olympic roster on December 30th. Whoever guesses the most number of players correctly wins.
  • If there’s a tie, we’ll randomly draw a name among those who had guessed the most number of correct players.
  • We’ll give out a signed Ryan Kesler photo (courtesy of the Vancouver Canucks and Canucks Fan Zone) and a copy of the 2010 Men’s Olympic Hockey Team Guide.
  • We’ll cut off responses at 9:00 PM on Tuesday, December 29.

And go!

PS. Just for fun, we here at CHB will share our picks as well, but don’t worry… we’ll declare ourselves ineligible to win the swag.

  3. Some good choices there. (Though really, are there bad choices for Team Canada?)

    FWIW.. Here are my picks:

    Nash – Crosby – Iginla
    Marleau – Thornton – Heatley
    E. Staal – Getlzaf – Perry
    Smyth – M. Richards – Toews
    B. Richards

    Niedermayer – Pronger
    Keith – Boyle
    Bouwmeester – Weber
    Green

    Brodeur
    Luongo
    Fleury

    Tough not to include Vinny Lecavalier, but I think he’s had a tough year. Smyth and Brad Richards has had good years and both are flexible enough to play anywhere in the lineup and on special teams.

    I think the last three forwards will be any of Bergeron, Toews, Morrow, M. Richards, B. Richards, Stamkos or Doan. Too hard to say, all have a legitimate claim and would help that team.
