Vancouver 2010, Many of you think I am here to talk about the Hockey events in the Olympic games, Well I might get to that later. But first is a huge annoyance that has come across me. The Video Game Vancouver 2010, does NOT have Hockey in the game. It is by far the biggest event of the Winter olympics. By far. How can you not include it in the Winter Olympics game? Yeah on 2k11 and nhl11 we will get the teams but come on. Serously? GAH!!!!!
Now on to the actual Olympics, Now that most of the rosters have been announced, (Im not sure if all of them have or not) what are your predictions on how our NHL boys will do? Who are you rooting for? who do you think will win?
As much I want USA to win, I dont see it happening. I see Canada winning the Gold for these reasons. The men upstairs. Mike Babcock Jacques Lemaire Lindy Ruff Ken Hitchcock Steve Yzerman Doug Armstrong Ken Holland Kevin Lowe Wayne Gretzky Support Staff
These are the guys upstairs including coaches. Great start for team Canada, some of the biggest names to ever be involved in hockey running the program.
Goaltending, I think they have by far the strongest group of Goalies in Marty, Fleury, and Luongo. Easily top 10 goalies in hockey right now are all three of them.
Forewards, As much as I think Crosby is a little b**ch and wishes he would retire, I will aknoladge his offensive ability. Even though he is Defensivly... for lack of better terms retarded, There is more than enoough talent on Team Canada to make up for it. Iginla, Getzlaf, Nash, Bergeron, Heatly, Perry, Stall, Thornton, Towes to name most of them.
D, Neidermayer, Pronger, Seabrook, Keith, Boyle.
They have all they could want and more to win gold.
I see some competition from Sweden though, Zetterberg, Holmstrom, Lidstrom, Kronwall, Ohlund, Backstrom, Alfredson, Foresberg, and the Sedins. I think their offence matched up decently with Canada, but in Goaltending and D, they do not stand a chance. I think they will win Silver.
Russia I think Will win Bronze because of their offensive power, and pretty good goaltending, but the lack of D will hurt them.
If one of these teams gets knocked off I see USA winning bronze.
