Foote, Blake and Pronger looked like pilons out there.
Maybe, maybe not. But he was referring to these olympics, not 2010.

I dunno...seems like the way they have this Olympic tournament scheduled....young is better...these older vets...play like 2-3 games a week in the NHL...and sit out occasional games....

In my humble...USA and Canada seem to view the Olympic selections as lifetime achievement awards....I guarantee if Brian Leetch wasnt hurt..he would have went...same with Lemeiux...

I'm not sure about Lemieux. He publicly stated he wanted to give the younger guys a shot and that even when he was healthy he felt he was not playing up to the standards and level that he should be playing.

This arguement holds no water. Sweden won it with Sundin, Forsberg, Lindstrom and Alfredsson. These guys are not spring chickens.

Good point...I though Finland would mop the ice with Sweden. Shows how much I know about hockey!

Just as bad as us, they use NHLers also. That's why.
