    2010. far better defense. You gain more offense on the defense in 2014, but Keith and Boyle and Myers and Schenn?? not an impressive defense (as of now). Far better depth on offense as well. avares doesn't impress me, Iginla plays a strong all around game.

    We shall see. Losts of time still

    Russia's talent is awesome, but with home ice advantage... Canada will be a tough out! Don't rule out the Swedes. Half their team plays on Vancouver or Detroit. In a short tournament "chemistry" maybe an issue.

    The one thing that concerns me with the Russian team is the whole "team" concept. Make the ice large and that's even more defensive zone room for Alexander Ovechkin to avoid

    You can't tell who will be on the 2014 team, Sid, Stamkos, Teows and Doughty are the only ones I would give a lock to at this point. We haven't even started 2010 yet I would take Stamkos's right shot playing wing with Sid and Nash right now if it was up to me.

    Anything can happen in this tournament. One game eliminations mean that about 7 teams have shot. In a 7 game series against anyone I would give the edge to Canada. But you take a bunch of guys and through them together and you don't know how long it will take them to gel. Home ice is overrated against other NHL players. I would rather see a round robin of 8 teams playing each other once, then the top 4 places play in the semi's.

    I like the Russian approach of having 12 forwards and 8 D to make four 5 man units. I guess you could argue that the Shark line playing with Boyle will have chemistry, the 2 Hawks D playing with Teows should have chemistry, same with the ducks players re-united with Pronger. Perry is only on the team because of Getzlaf IMO. Neidermayer would not be on the team I would pick, he is too old now.

    Lately Canada's goalies have been sucking the mother wolf's hind teat. I just read that Bobby Lou is getting the start in the first game. I would rather Brodeur because he can handle the puck and no octagon or parallelogram or whatever the **** in international hockey. The games will be played on NHL size ice, so maybe an adjustment for the players playing in Europe.

    I was a bit surprised that Luongo will get the first start, because he's been as bad as Broduer recently.

    As for MAF, I just checked his stats this year and he's about 25th in save % and the same in GAA. I knew he was slipping, but WTF? Some of the goalies ahead of him are an embarrassment, and their team defences are no better than ours. I know he's been a "money" goalie but he appears to have lost more than a normal amount of concentration recently. Hopefully this two week sit will reenergize him for the last 20 games and the playoffs, otherwise we are in trouble.

    I agree, MAF, baring injury, will be sitting in a press box resting for 2 weeks.
