    Iginla- Olympic Motivation??

    I think we are going to see a seriously motivated Jarome Iginla this season.

    Obviously, he will want to improve on his lack lustre performance in last year's playoffs.  On top of that, he has always been a beast in representing Canada and would love to play his way into the mix on Team Canada.  Is he likely to make the team?  Probably not at this stage of his career.  But I could seem him coming very prepared for the season with aspirations of developing chemistry with a Team Canada shoe-in like Bergeron.  Throw in Claude as one of the Team Canada coaches and he has to think he at least has a chance.

    He is only two years removed from a 43 goal season for the Flames and three years from playing a key role in Canada's gold medal winning team.

    Looking forward to seeing a player who has Bruin written all over him!!!

    i dont think there is any way he makes team canada.  Way too many skilled, young fast fwds that are ready to take his place.  I love what iggy has done but he is not an elite player at this stage of his career.  i would take marchand lucic bergie over iggy in a second.   Big ice eliminates lucic and iggy quickly.  Marchand has an outside chance and would love him on the 4th line with bergie and Cory perry.

    Jonathan Toews - Sidney Crosby - Steven Stamkos

    John Tavares - Claude Giroux - Martin St. Louis

    Taylor Hall - Logan Couture - Eric Staal

    Jamie Benn - Patrice Bergeron - Corey Perry

    Patrick Marleau, Rick Nash, Patrick Sharp or Mike Richards


    I don't see Iginla getting in.

    It would take a monster start for him to even be considered. I would rather him not go and get some rest.

    I agree 100%.  The question is... does Iginla see it that way?

    I don't think a world class athlete like him has given up hope and at the very least, wants to give Team Canada something to think about.  It can only help the Bruins.

    Im sure brodeur thinks he has a chance as well but im sure both are realistic.  Iggy got 2.  I think marty stlouis makes it bc he can fly and likely plays with stamPkos.

    You spelled his name wrong. Other than that everything else is fine.

    Jerome has some years in him for sure but there are more deserving candidates.

    Pat Quinn said that Bergeron has shown he's a world class centerman & expects him to be the #2 center behind Crosby. Think I'll listen to his assessment over anyone elses on this board.

    Lets face it. Canada could ice two teams for the Olympics and they'd probably meet each other in the Gold Medal Game.

    He barely played the last time.  

    Stampkos toews tavares i think will all be ahead of him.  canada has always had some kinda shut down line.  I love bergie but he isnt ahead of the above noted imo.  Again, centers will have to play the wing.  So i guess its possible.  

    I see crosby toews stampkos bergie.  Canada is just loaded with centers.

    Im only kidding by the way.   US has too many good goalies.   Price is my starter.   I feel Loungo will have a great year and likely gets the nod.  Crawford will be there or ward.  I also said look out for jake allen.

    Ward didn't get the invite. Allen is a nobody to Team Canada officials as of now for getting any kind of recognition like this. 

    But no need to fight. I agree with everything you said.
