Still weird to see a Slovakian team without Demo.

 

I woke up at 7:30 expecting to read the rosters and of course I see a bunch of lame-o talking heads going on about PK Subban. Fucking TSN turning everything into an event.

For those that mistakenly think Russia is awesome, I'm seeing reports that apparently Anton Belov made the team.

 

He's possiblly the laziest defenseman on the Edmonton Oilers. Let that sink in for a minute.

 

They're going to score a ton, but their defense is going to be fucking horrible.

How is that a revelation?

 

This whole presentation needs to shut up and put a graphic up of the team. fuuuuuuuuuu

This press conference is the most amazing debacle I have ever seen.

 

I am watching twitter melt and I legitimately cannot stop laughing.

Yzerman selfishly leaves St. Louis off because he wants him rested for a playoff run!

 

But really someone's going to have to step in once they admit Stamkos can't play.  I'd guess Giroux.  This is his punishment for being a dumb shit.

Well, there's no reason not to name Stamkos. If he can't play, you replace him at the last minute, it's no big deal really.

Oh my god what if Chris Kunitz doesn't play well early!  We only have 12 other NHL superstars to choose from!

Yzerman is clearly uncomfortable about the whole Martin St. Louis thing on TSN, not that you can blame him. He knew this was coming but this is a bit hard to watch him get grilled on.

I didn't really expect Joe Thornton to make the team, but since he was my favorite player to watch growing up it still breaks my heart alittle.

Chris Cuthbert proposes the following ridiculous scenario:

 


Team Canada 2

Forwards Hall Giroux St.Louis Couture Thornton Burns Skinner Staal Neal Lucic Seguin Iginla Richards Vermette

 

Defence Campbell Seabrook Giordano Phaneuf Beauchemin Letang Boychuck Boyle

 

Goal Crawford Fleury Harding

 

Honestly, anyone can pick a good Team Canada. There are guys on the real team I don't like but some people need calm.

Fuck a Rick Nash. That's my first reaction to the Canadian lineup.
