I will never understand the facination Canada hockey has with Bouwmeester.... Hamhuis , just a complete surprise....Seabrook should have been in...
Jeff Carter, Chris Kunitz----WOW!!!!! No Giroux, Thorton or St.Louis......[/QUOTE]
What Crosby wants, Crosby gets!
Isn't that the truth! Fawking disgusting, I lost a lot of respect for Yzerman for allowing this stiff & plug Hamius. Compared to players left off the team that's what these 2 are!
Don't overlook the input Babcock had in these selections ...Yzerman is class act and made most of the tough calls to Giroux, St.Louis, Thorton, Couture.... Those wouldn't have been easy....plus Yzerman had our own PC , Armstrong, Lowe, Holland helping him out... I think Stevie Y wanted St,Louis in, but got over ruled by Babcock.....not his type of player....
I think crosby was pretty silent until the golden goal. Kunitz gives him instant comfort and stampkos the best goal scorer he has ever played with. I dont have an issue with really any of the pics that much. I wouldnt take carter or marleau but they wanted speed and guys who have played multiple positions well. The team is built for speed. Its a very skilled, big, fast team that can score. Im more ticked at seabrook not making it. Hes in my eyes better then 3 of the dmen and plays great with keith.
Goalies were kinda set bc crawfords injury.
its a very solid team with lots of options. Absolute canons on the pp. the best defensive fwd in hockey in bergie.
Overall, very happy with the team. I wanted logan and lucic and would take them over marleau carter. But i get why they did. St Louis Giroux i also like a lot. But how do you leave Nash off. He was our best fwd in 2010 and plays great with getz perry. Huge line with size skill.
