I do this for fun, and decide who I would’ve picked for the Olympic team in certain years. I believe the 2002 team was perfect, and I submitted my 2006 team already, so I skipped those two. I often say it would’ve taken a monkey or Bobby Clarke for Canada to lose in the Olympics. It’s true, the only person not to pick a winning team with professionals in the Olympics is Bobby Clarke. Although considering Wayne Gretzky is the only person to win, that’s not saying much.
First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone out there. We have a great second half to the season to look forward to!
Slipping through the cracks of the so-called “new NHL,” Yanic Perreault was passed over by many teams for his lack of speed, and I say thank you to those teams.
The question is… The Habs are they correct to go to the playoff with this team?
The answer is … No! And Gainey knows it.
With Koivu, Plekanec and Theodore on the injury list… The Habs need a little boost.
I realize LeafyMcLeaf already posted something similar, but he couldn’t find all the rosters, so i’m just adding on to it. Here are the complete rosters…

Do you ever see any small men have a successful career spent entirely on the fourth line as a grinder? Of course not. Even Stu Barnes had his offensive years where he was an upper-tier pool pick! The small hockey player does not get a second look unless he forces scouts to take a second look. His defensive checking abilities aren’t what grabs the attention. It’s his dazzling moves, his brilliant hockey sense, and his off-the-charts offensive numbers. Even then, it doesn’t guarantee a shot at the big time. When you draft a smaller player, and by that I mean a player that weighs in at under 185 pounds and stands less than 5’9, there are three certainties.
The roster freeze is on, but the minds of NHL general managers are still functioning.
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ partner in a proposed $1 billion development at the site of Mellon Arena is willing to put up $290 million to pay for a new, 18,000-seat home for the National Hockey League team.
Rumors are flying around Philadelphia that Keith Primeau will soon be shelved for the rest of the season due to lingering concussion symptoms that he cannot shake off. Similar to the symptoms Primeau suffered with almost a full year after the Flyers were eliminated from the Playoffs in 2003 by Tampa Bay.
St Louis? Doan? Regehr?? DRAPER??!!??! What the hell are people talking about these guys for, this is my 2006 Olympic hockey team.
I have been a close follower of the San Jose Sharks in season 2005-2006, a campaign many would call ‘A Tale of Two Seasons.’ The monumental trade that saw Joe Thornton arrive in San Jose has certainly changed the fortunes of the Sharks, who after 7 games with the big number 19, only lost for the first time yesterday in a close match to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
Joe Thornton has brought so much to the Sharks, and whilst the team is greatly benefiting from having him on board, there’s no doubt that he too, is faring better after a change of scenery from his former pressure-cooker situation in Boston.
