Team Canada 2018



blog-0155681001389118801.jpgFirst of all, congratulations to the 2014 Men's Canadian Olympic Hockey Team. Go Canada Go! I'll be cheering from home!

Also, in case you missed it, here are the 25 members of the team, arranged by where I think they'll be playing.













Luongo (will start 1st game)



As for my evaluation of this team, I expect nothing less of gold in Sochi. I trust that Steve Yzerman and Mike Babcock, and all of Hockey Canada made the right choices and all I can do as a die hard fan of Canadian hockey is cheer them on. Not sit here and criticize every move made. Management and the coaching staff know what they're doing (re 2010), so don't doubt Team Canada.

Now, moving on. Today, Hockey Canada announced their 25 man roster for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. With very close attention being paid to the members of this squad, I've decided to look a bit further. The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are scheduled to take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Canada's quest for gold at the 2018 games is set to begin in a few weeks, Sunday, February 23rd. Immediately after this year's gold medal game. Yup.

While, my squad for the 2018 games is a complete shot in the dark and is just for fun, the guys I picked are based off of who I think will be the best players come February 2018. Enjoy!
