You Picked Who? - Team Canada Olympic Roster
Holy crap I am dissapointed in the Team Canada selections.
Patrice Bergeron is on this team? And (possibly) on the 1st line with Crosby? What the hell? Drew Doughty and Brent Seabrook also made the team over Jay Bouwmeester and Mike Green? How is this possible?
No Ryan Smyth? I don't get it. No Vinny Lecavalier or Marty St. Louis? *scratches head*
No Shane Doan either? Shocking.
Now the grand daddy of shockers for me... no Dustin Penner. Most of you don't care but I do. He is awesome this year and he's doing it with slugs. Imagine if he was reunited with Perry and Getzlaf? But I don't understand why you would tell Penner he has a chance when it's clear they weren't going to pick him? I don't get it. But then again, I'm an emotional guy and I had a different team than what Steve Yzerman picked.
So who did make it?
Scott Niedermayer (Team Captain)
Chris Pronger (Alternate Captain)
Sidney Crosby (Alternate Captain)
Jarome Iginla (Alternate Captain)
I like the Niedermayer pick for Captain. I've known him for a long time and he's won everything there is. He is by far the best choice for team Captain.
I don't mind the assistants either. Also good picks.
They guys I didn't think should be on the team are: Bergeron, Staal, Morrow, Seabrook and Doughty. But I don't pick the team so who cares what I wanted. Right?
Either way, it's a good team so let's just hope this team wins gold or the country will riot. GO CANADA!!!
