19sakic1 Posted March 10, 2010 Report Share Posted March 10, 2010 Well, hockey is finally getting interesting again after the sudden thump of world class hockey ending and mediocre NHL hockey starting. Man were those first few games boring! Anyway, I've been thinking a lot lately about what the Sochi team would look like. I really quickly put a team together, but I'm sure I've made some obvious omissions. It's just kind of neat thinking about who would be there down the line. Of course, there are going to be guys that probably come out of nowhere and guys who could be completely interchangeable to the point of a coin flip. But it's just an idea to kick around for fun. Here is my list. forwards nash crosby iginla perry getzlaf Estaal carter toews richards duchene Jstaal stamkos I think you keep the nucleus of the forwards together. Say goodbye to the san jose line except maybe Heatley. Bye to Morrow likely. Jordan Staal is becoming an excellent two way centre and would be good for a 4th line. Also, it would be cool having all 3 Staals. You've got familiarity with perry/getzlaf and carter/richards -- all with international experience. You could bump Nash down to the line he was with in Vancouver with Toews and Richards and put another scorer with Sid. So many possibilities. 13th forward could be anyone. Too many to think of. Tavares? Hall? Eberle? Someone defensive like Bergeron? defence weber doughty keith Mstaal bouwmeester burns Say goodbye to the old guys and keep weber, doughty, keith obviously. replace seabrook with marc staal. in 4 years he would be getting into his prime and he's handling things well at 23 or so. If Burns ever stayed healthy he could be an interesting add. Off the radar at the moment because of the injuries, but you could go other routes with Green, Subban, etc. Bouwmeester is a toss up. He's been kinda meh since coming here to Calgary. Good but not great, but so much potential. Anywho, dissect my team if you'd like. I'd like to hear other names too. I think the only real locks are Sid, Getzlaf, Toews, Doughty, Weber, and Keith. Otherwise it could be all up in the air. Later gators. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
