    Here are the Canadian lines from morning practice:

    Nash-Crosby-Bergeron
    Staal-Getzlaf-Perry
    Marleau-Thornton-Heatley
    Morrow-Toews-Iginla

    It appears Mike Richards is the 13th forward.

    The D-pairings look like this:

    Boyle-Pronger
    Keith-Seabrook
    Weber-Niedermayer

    Looks like Doughty is the seventh D.

    Roberto L in net. Marty B will start on Thursday.

    I would guess we will see a blow out today against the team from Norway.


    +++++

    USA takes on the Swiss at 3pm est. Should be Miller in net for USA vs Hiller for the Swiss.

    USA is the heavy favorite against the Swiss, but after 1998 and 2006 in is a crap shoot for this team...lol...

    The only jinx I see is that you declared your pansy-ass country gold medal winners before the puck was dropped. Bad move, Mike. Bad move.

    We will win. They interviewed Babcock on CTV and he looked like a man who's life depended on winning gold. That would be correct.

    Well there are no high expectations of the U.S. team so I'll just sit back and hope we can break a few hearts along the way.

    I enjoy the whole USA v Canada rivalry, but really it will be hard to root against Canada if you are a big NHL fan. I mean look at that team, some of my favorite players in the league.

    In 2002 when Mario L was playing for Team Canada I sure was torn. Had to still root for JR and Modano as well though.

    Really I just can't wait to watch some great hockey.

    Anybody getting a Olympic JERSEY? Man tough call who to buy.

    Both my kids want Crosby # 87s. My oldest had his Fleury Pens #29 on yesterday. I was like dude, where were you born.....lol.....It's Olympic time! Hopefully he will break out the Roenick #97 jersey tonight......

    yes, your victory over Switzerland will break some hearts.

    The beating you will receive from us will be very significant later in the week. We apologize in advance and warn American children to not watch.

    Exactly.

    Most Hockey pundints and NHL fans have Team USA placing from 4th to 8th.

    If they even make it to the medal round with their young team it will be considered a big victory. If they get a medal, well holy shit. They are a big underdog, hopefully they will play up the role.

    Burke is really building Team USA for 2014. They just need some big game international experience. 2010 may provide it.
