  • Hammertownleaffan

    In what world would a team take Carter over Giroux/St Louis?

  • .JVR.

    Was really surprised to see Carter and Marleau on the roster.

  • Mind Bomb

    Murph2417  Same result though

  • Uncle Otis

    Hammertownleaffan
    Did you see the bread a circus intro?
    That world

  • Airfreshener

    Murph2417 Did you let Jeff roll the die?

  • Loric76

    fuck Hockey Canada, idiots.

  • vinoa

    If we needed natural wingers why not St. Louis?

  • Airfreshener

    Loric76 maybe this shit show and the world jrs will lead to a shakeup for the organization.

  • Uncle Otis

    Loric76
    Blow it the fack up.

  • Ryan

    I don’t understand the Boumeester selection guy hasn’t won a thing and still continues to make it

  • 4evrblue

    @Ryan he skates like the wind, thats all I can think

  • maple1967leafs

    Hamhuis must have pictures of Stevey y

  • Hammertownleaffan

    If we took Kunitz to play with Crosby (barf)…why the hell didn’t we take St.Louis to play with Stamkos? The guy won the points title last year

  • JWaterdrager

    Only in Canada people complain about a roster like that. But those jerseys are ugly as hell

  • vinoa

    @Ryan Having an amazing season in St. Louis.

  • Ryan

    vinoa 
    One season doesn’t equate to why he is continually selected.

  • reenergized

    JWaterdrager only because we feel there are better players avaialble

  • wiski

    JWaterdrager they can all dawn the blue and white any day 😉

  • vinoa

    @Ryan vinoa Then you answered it. Repeat performer.

  • Mcost61

    wiski JWaterdrager Except Subban, he is tainted

  • 1DERYRS

    JWaterdrager I really want to buy one of the Jerseys but which is the best of the worst? lol.. maybe the black one?

  • reenergized

    wiski increased odds of having players injured … good!

  • .JVR.

    JWaterdrager  
    No shit, name a team with a better lineup than this:

    Kunitz   –   Crosby   –   Stamkos 
    Tavares   –   Toews   –   Sharp 
    Duchene   –   Getzlaf   –   Perry 
    Benn   –   Bergeron   –   Carter 
    Nash   –   Marleau 
    Keith   –   Weber 
    Bouwmeester   –   Pietrangelo 
    Hamhuis   –   Doughty 
    Vlasic   –   Subban 
    Luongo 
    Price 
    Smith

  • JWaterdrager

    1DERYRS JWaterdrager Black one is ok, the other 2 are a joke.

  • Pent_House

    USA will slap Canada

  • .JVR.

    Hammertownleaffan 
    They might have been thinking, what if Stamkos isn’t ready to go.  Then where does St. Louis play?

  • Uncle Otis

    Pent_House
    From the goal out

  • Pent_House

    Does anyone have the rosters for Czechs, Slovaks, Swedes, Finns, and Russians?

  • .JVR.

    Pent_House 
    I don’t see that happening

  • vinoa

    Pent_House Bylsma won’t have Crosby and Malkin.

  • Tim Horton

    Pent_House Without Robert Stevenson? I doubt it.

  • Greg Fenton

    Pent_House I don’t like the American’s defense or at center.

  • Jmessih

    Pent_House All on TSN

  • 4evrblue

    Oilers fans are gonna lose their freakin MINDS!!!

  • JWaterdrager

    .JVR. JWaterdrager Yep, it is a crazy good team. With that talent, you can leave some more talented guys at home for team sake.

  • Jmessih

    My alterations to the teamhttps://twitter.com/JacobMessihhttps://twitter.com/JacobMessih/status/420594811872096256
    My picks: Out: Carter, Kunitz, Marleau, Sharp, Vlassic.
    In: Giroux, St. Louis, Hall, Couture (if healthy), Phaneuf.
    Smith out, Bernier in.

  • Pent_House

    Greg Fenton Pent_House You don’t like their centres??? Kesler, Backes, Pavelski, Stastny. Wow.

  • Greg Fenton

    .JVR. Hammertownleaffan With Crosby or Tavares or anyone else on the team? 

    They didn’t take Seguin to play with Benn either. It seems like Crosby and Getzlaf got their wingers but a couple other guys didn’t.

  • Mcost61

    Thornton did not make it, he should be pissed and demand to be taded to the Leafs!

  • lieffan

    Assuming Couture’s absence is about the injury?

  • 4evrblue

    Mcost61 “like” times 10,000,000,000,000

  • lieffan

    Mcost61 That would only have hurt his chances

  • Snots

    Jmessih hahahaha

  • Tim Horton

    Pent_House Greg Fenton Crosby, Getzlaf, Tavares, Toews

  • Hammertownleaffan

    This reminds me of the Old Boys club we brought to Turin…Marleau? Someone please try to convince me Marleau is better than Giroux. I used to love Nash, but we just saw him play the Leafs on Saturday, and he was terrible. He didn’t really factor at all in a 7-1 beatdown. Put St.Louis with Stamkos and let them light it up.

  • Uncle Otis

    Is it irony that a guy who was perennially left off Team Canada’s now gets to do the same?
    Nash and Carter are a joke IMO.

  • Greg Fenton

    Pent_House Greg Fenton Not really. I don’t think there is a legit #1 option there on the NHL level, never mind the Olympic level.

    Fuck off with the who didn’t make it shit Duthie? You aren’t going to get an answer that isn’t cliched.
