Canadian Athletes and a Look at Canada's 2014 Olympic Men's hockey team

I can't wait for Men's Olympic Hockey to start. Will there be another Crosby dream moment or will the Russians take it this year?

Canadians look forward to the Olympics to watch many winter sports but in the end the juggernaut is the Olympic Men's hockey team and the most anticipated games are men's hockey. Who can forget the swelling of national pride when Canadian forward Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal in the Men's Gold Medal Hockey match at the Canada Hockey Place during the XXI Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver on February 28, 2010? Canada beat the USA 3-2 to win gold. The next line-up of Olympic contenders are looking to repeat that victory in Sochi, Russia in February. Who do you think will take the gold?

As the National Post's Noah Love observed: “Sidney Crosby! The golden goal! And Canada has once-in-a-lifetime Olympic gold!” will be played for the rest of your days, just like Foster Hewitt’s “Henderson has scored for Canada!” and Al Michaels’ “Do you believe in miracles?” before it.

Is the Canadian roster taking shape? Not yet. There are the locks like Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, John Tavares, Ryan Getzlaf, Shea Weber and Duncan Keith. There have also been pleasant surprises like Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn and San Jose Sharks defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. The Olympic hockey team has Patrick Sharp in its sights, say prognosticators. The swift, sharpshooting forward of the Chicago Blackhawks is slotted anywhere from serving as a first-line winger for Crosby with Eric Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes, to being a question mark as to whether he even makes the team.
