"Reigning NHL MVP Connor McDavid played for an under-23 “Team North America” at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey and has yet to play for Canada in a tournament of the world's best men's hockey players.

"Just to be able to represent Canada at the Olympics and compete for a gold medal would be an absolute dream come true," McDavid told The Associated Press this week. “It’s kind of been a long time since we’ve been able to play best-on-best internationally. I think for me and I think for a lot of guys that were on that team, it’s been a long time coming. We’re obviously looking forward to going to the Olympics if we’re all lucky enough to make it.”

@JFreshHockey set up a google doc using all the players that they think realistically have a shot at making the team and allows you to select who you think should make it.

Canada's forwards should far and away be the best in the tournament. Defence is probably not as strong as we've had in past tournaments, but the goalies are pretty suspect.

David Staples has Zach Hyman as having an excellent shot at representing Team Canada...

Chris Kunitz has a 2014 gold medal because he played well with Crosby. If Hyman gels with McD, why not him. You can't have an entire team of all stars. You do need a few guys to go to the net, dig pucks out, do all the dirty work.

Mike Smith has a gold medal from that team too!

Kunitz was an idiotic selection from a Team Canada braintrust that constantly outthinks itself instead of just taking the best players. The team won gold because it was a ridiculously good team even so, and so taking a couple of scrubs isn't enough to make it competitive with lesser rosters.

If the braintrust is taking any 40-50 point forwards, they're doing it wrong. Probably won't pay for that mistake, but it is still a mistake. Hyman should not be on the Canadian national team.

But he is a registered Oilfans member. And MJ never had to ban him.

Here are the results of the fan vote from the link I posted earlier. I don't have too much to quibble with, I'd probably take Toews over Pelech, and Letang over Dougie Hamilton, and you could probably sub in Scheifele over a couple of the lower tier forwards but this is pretty close to who I would pick.

No Cups

I like Brayden point, but 4th highest?
We will be the most offensively dominant group. Defense is a little up in the air. Solid, but not as elite as previous Olympics.
Goalies are good, but i don't think we have the best goalie lineup. Seems like Canada will have to play Oilers style hockey and simply outscore their opponents.

Happy the NHL, and Canada, will go to the Olympics, for the players, as well as all the other athletes.. but absolutely disgusted the IOC chose China to host in the first place. With China's history of systemic human rights abuses, invasion of and take over of Tibet, ongoing genocide of the Uyghur people, not to mention the kidnapping, show trial, and holding for ransom of Canadian citizens, China should never be hosting any international event, by any organization, that pretends to support human rights and world peace.
But, based on the history of the IOC, all the way back to its support of Nazi Germany, one should not be surprised, the IOC licks the boots of the CCP for cash. The IOC is one reason they invented Swiss bank accounts.

I'd love to see the Canadian team march into the Olympic closing ceremonies carrying banners saying "Stop the Genocide, Free the Uyghur People", and/or "CCP.. Free Michael Kovrig - Free Michael Spavor"

Happy the NHL, and Canada, will go to the Olympics, for the players, as well as all the other athletes.. but absolutely disgusted the IOC chose China to host in the first place. With China's history of systemic human rights abuses, invasion of and take over of Tibet, ongoing genocide of the Uyghur people, not to mention the kidnapping, show trial, and holding for ransom of Canadian citizens, China should never be hosting any international event, by any organization, that pretends to support human rights and world peace.
But, based on the history of the IOC, all the way back to its support of Nazi Germany, one should not be surprised, the IOC licks the boots of the CCP for cash. The IOC is one reason they invented Swiss bank accounts.

I'd love to see the Canadian team march into the Olympic closing ceremonies carrying banners saying "Stop the Genocide, Free the Uyghur People", and/or "CCP.. Free Michael Kovrig - Free Michael Spavor"

In the IOC’s defence, China bribed them pretty heavily and it’s rude to not award the Olympics to the people that pay you the most.

Hey I guess you're obligated to always take the high bid, under the table that is, I think its actually written into the IOC charter!
Putin, CCP.. all champions for human rights! Cue the Taliban bid for "Afghanistan 2034"!

IOC bribes in exchange for the ultimate in Nationalist Propaganda to the masses.. Priceless!!

Haven't you heard? The CCP is already in there partnering with the new Taliban overlords in Afghanistan in order to mine their mineral deposits, estimated between $1 Trillion to $3 Trillion. CCP were just biding their time, likely helped finance the Taliban for decades, time to cash in on the investment. I think they'll have what it takes to pay off the IOC .. chump change! :)

How China may benefit from Afghanistan’s estimated $3 trillion mineral reserves following the Taliban takeover
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-china-may-benefit-from -afghanistans-estimated-3-trillion-mineral-reserves-followin g-the-taliban-takeover-11629482999

Quote:

The fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban has led to grave concerns about the safety of Afghan citizens and foreigners alike, but also raised questions about the future of the nation’s vast mineral reserves, once valued at as much as $3 trillion.

The chaos may offer China, which dominates the world market for rare earths, widely used in technology, to step in to develop the mineral reserves, which also include lithium, used in the manufacture of batteries.

“Chinese dealmakers have their bags packed, and will arrive on the first flights after the airports open,” said Byron King, geologist and mining and energy writer for Agora Financial.

“People who understand exploration have long looked at Afghanistan with desire,” he told MarketWatch, adding that Afghanistan has routinely sent representatives to international mining conferences in the past 20 years to “give talks about the mineral endowment.”

Data from the U.S. Geological Survey indicates that Afghanistan may hold unexplored mineral reserves worth as much as $1 trillion, and the government of Afghanistan estimated the figure at as high as $3 trillion, according to an article posted in 2012 by the Embassy of Afghanistan, Washington D.C.

This made me laugh.

Quote:

Nathan MacKinnon confirmed a good little rumour — that Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid skated as linemates at a Montreal camp; some pre-Olympic practice. MacKinnon half-joked he didn’t like it, because they won every game. “Way to keep it fair,” he laughed. The Avalanche forward, by the way, spent a lot of time on a line with Mitch Marner.


McDavid/Crosby might be fun to watch too...

China is the equivalent of the Nazis is not a take I expected to read about on Oilfans today. I do find it interesting that the US occupied Afghanistan for 2 decades and bombed them into oblivion, and no one is saying that the US shouldn't be allowed to host the Olympics. Yet, we're all of a sudden outraged that China might go in and mine resources in Afghanistan. It's not like Canadian companies exactly have squeaky clean records when it comes to exploiting developing nations for their natural resources either.

I wouldn't say that China is the same as the Nazis, and I am with Adam that I hope we aren't 3 years away from a direct war with them (and for the record I don't think we are). However, China has the genocide in common with 1930s Germany, and I really don't see what China has been doing the the Uyghurs as having any equivalency to what the United States did in Afghanistan at all. I know that is not what you are using as the comparison in your comment, but that was what I was thinking as I wrote mine.

I am guessing that in the 1930s, people were generally ok with Germany hosting the games (Olympics were in 1936, and Hitler was Time Man of the Year in 1938), just as it seems like people seem to be generally ok with China hosting them in 2022. But years from now perhaps more is brought to light about China that will change people's perception. I have no idea if that will happen, since so many people seem totally cool with China right now in their current state, but it's just something I wonder.

An interesting article in Mcleans regarding the CCP and their boot-licking servants; J. Chretien, J. Manley, J. Trudeau; essentially the entire leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada, past and present. The Liberal party was leaning on the Justice Minister Reybould even back then, except instead of as agents for SNC interests, it was the CCP.. money talks.. ethics walks..

https://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/what-jean-chretien-h as-done-to-canada-on-the-meng-wanzhou-case/

Quote:


What Jean Chrétien has done to Canada on the Meng Wanzhou case
Terry Glavin: Why does Beijing think the Trudeau government can simply shuck off the U.S. and free the Huawei exec? Because a certain former PM keeps saying so.

..It’s quite true that Chrétien knows his way around the parasitical Communist Party elites that have lately decided to scuttle any of the institutions of the global order that would resist Beijing’s efforts to reshape the world in its own image and likeness. Chrétien’s 15 years of service to Chinese and Canadian corporations as a lobbyist, adviser, deal-maker, consultant and errand runner began officially only days after he resigned as Prime Minister after a decade in office in 2003...

..It’s because of what Beijing has been hearing loudly, clearly and consistently since last December, because that’s what Chrétien, former deputy prime minister John Manley, the dependably pro-Beijing think-tanker Wenran Jiang and quite a few others from that crowd have been saying, loudly, clearly and consistently, from the beginning. It’s this: All Trudeau has to do is say the word and for the first time in its 48 years of existence, the extradition treaty between Canada and the United States can simply be ignored, just like that.

And Canada would be welcomed into China’s camp, and turned against the United States at last, just as Beijing has been hoping for all along.

“I don’t think they know or care what kind of damage they’re doing to this country,” is the way a senior Team Trudeau insider put it to me the other day. “With what they’ve done, there’s no reason for China to take our protestations seriously.”

Chrétien has not responded to Maclean’s’ request for a response.

It’s no wonder that Xi Jinping and his ministers are furious that Trudeau hasn’t played along. It’s no wonder that Chrystia Freeland can’t get Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to return her calls.

It’s not just China that’s putting the onus on Canada to pick up the pieces and re-assemble Canada’s obsequious, kowtowing relationship with Beijing. “We hope that Canada will take seriously our severe concerns and immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou and actively take substantial measures to push China-Canada relations back on track as soon as possible.” That could have been Jean Chretien talking, or John Manley. It was Geng Shuang, China’s foreign ministry spokesman, just last week...
