Justin Faulk could possibly get a look from Team USA.

 

For the past two IIHF World Championships, he has without a doubt been the best defenseman on Team USA.

Chris Chelios makes the NHL Hall of Fame!

 

 

Congratulations to Chris Chelios on being elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Today's induction is the culmination of an illustrious career in which he compiled 948 points in 1,651 games (fifth all-time, most among defensemen and most among American-born players)

Wow, just did some numbers on our goalies and it's a really tight race. USA will definately have top tier goalies at the olympics. Here are the numbers on our goalies over the last 3 years:

 

Miller - SA: 5,022, SV%: 91.56

 

Howard - SA: 4,455, SV%: 91.7

 

Quick - SA: 4,383, SV%: 91.6

 

Anderson - SA: 4,140, SV%: 92.26

 

Hmmm, maybe Quick won't be 1 of our goalies if they had to choose the olympic team right now. Looks like it might be Howard and Miller atm. Anderson does have the highest save percentage but he's faced way fewer shots than anyone else and Miller has faced way more than anyone else.

The real question is who is playing goalie for Team Canada...

 

Broudeur - too old

Price - too inconsistent

Fleury - flat out sucks

Ward - hasn't played in a while

Luongo - inconsistent but probably Canada's best bet

 

I think Canada goes with Luongo, one of Ward or Price, and possibly Mike Smith or Devan Dubnyk as the third.

Luongo, Smith, Price would be good for them.

You're right.

 

For the first time in a long time, or probably ever, USA has the upper hand when it comes to goalies. Everyone you mentioned is too inconsistent or overrated.

Also, Buffalo would be idiots to get rid of Miller.

The NHL schedule is delayed due to a conflict with the Olympics

 

 

 

NHL players have competed in every Winter Olympiad since 1998, but a deal between the NHL, players’ association, International Olympic Committee and International Ice Hockey Federation to send players to the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia, has not yet been finalized. If an agreement is made, the league will take a two-week hiatus in February to allow players to represent their countries.

 

When it is released, this year’s NHL schedule will have a different look than in seasons past. The new realignment plan has trimmed the number of divisions from six to four and shifted both Detroit and Columbus to the Eastern Conference

Come on, come to an agreement soon! I want to kick some Canadian ass!

An agreement has been reached for NHL participation in the Sochi Olympics.

Hopefully this means there is a schedule release on the horizon.
