So Donald Brashear… it was fun while it lasted. Hold on. No it wasnt. Anyway…
With the news that Brashear has been waived and the disheartening loss to the Predators behind us we move on. With Pittsburgh on tap tonight and Tampa on Sunday we’re on the cusp of the Olympics so I wanted to get opinions on how you all think Team Canada and especially Team USA will fare. What do you think of the two rosters?
Should our $7m captain be there instead of guys like Tim Connonlly and our own (underperforming) Brandon Dubinsky? There’s probably 7 million reasons why Drury shouldnt be there (sorry couldnt resist) but he is so why do you guys think that is? Callahan… do you guys think he deserves to be there? For the record I do. He offers so many dimensions and can be deployed throughout the line up but you guys dont need me to tell you that.
On another matter, do you guys think Marc Staal should have garnered more consideration for the Canadian Team? With so many offensive weapons on their blueline would they stand to benefit from a guy like Staal or is it too early for him? I think its a bit too early for Staal but in 4 years time I say he’s there.
In another post we’ll look into all the Rangers at the Olympics but thought we’d start it off looking at the US and Canadian Entry.
