After months of anticipation and predictions from the sportscasters the roster for Team Canada was unveiled today. Here are the 23 players selected to represent our fine country in Vancouver:
Team Canada 2010 Goaltenders:
All the goalies hail from the mecca of hockey goaltenders Quebec.
Team Canada 2010 Defence
Scott Niedermayer (Team Captain)
Chris Pronger (Alternate Captain)
Four BC boys selected to play defence for team Canada. No Green, Bouwmeester?
Team Canada 2010 Forwards
Sidney Crosby (Alternate Captain)
Jarome Iginla (Alternate Captain)
Now that the roster has been unveiled the next question on everyones mind is who will be the starting goaltender? Everyone is quick to say Martin Brodeur and they may be correct in their assumption, however, I wouldn’t be surprised it Roberto Luongo is named the starter. The Olympics are afterall in Vancouver so it would seem fitting.
This is the one time Leafs, Oilers, Habs, Flames, Senators and ‘Nucks fans all cheer together for the same team. Go Canada Go!
