Team Canada Early Picks Seem Myopic

November 6th, 2009 by Elbow Murderpants Leave a reply »

If one was to believe the pundits after the Canadian Olympic Hockey Team orientation camp in August, they would accept that “no definite decisions” were made based on the performance of the players in Calgary, and that the performance of the players in the first half of the NHL season would make or break the case for who should be chosen.

I’m already starting to wonder.

One hundred days out of the Olympics, and one month into the 2009-10 NHL season, Pierre McGuire posts an article entitled "Pierre's Picks—100 Days Out ."

In short, he picks the following forwards:

Rick Nash, Sidney Crosby, Martin St. Louis
Jeff Carter, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry
Brenden Morrow, Mike Richards, Shane Doan
Patrick Marleau, Jordan Staal, Jarome Iginla
Patrick Sharp
