Default Hockey Canada Olympic roster announcement. 10 AM MT

I am going to guess Rene Bourque will make the team. Maybe Iginla.

Can someone make a logical statement as to why a guy like Makar would decline a spot? Why wouldn’t you want to represent your country? He literally just did two weeks ago.

Maybe it's a generational thing and it doesnt have the cache anymore, but I don't understand how anyone, especially a 19 year old, can decline an invite to the frickin' Olympics.

Just speculation, but Makar just did miss a month of university because of the World Juniors. He perhaps did not want to miss more or could not get permission to miss more.

I was thinking the same thing, he already represented his country and missed a ton of school as well as likely some games.

Missing another huge chunk of time? Yeah, it probably came down to 'bad idea/inability to get permission.'

He also just spent the world juniors as the #7 and PP specialist, without much of a role. I am sure he wouldn't be much more than that on this team, so that probably played into it.

I'm looking forward to this, I cant wait to see what this team is going to look like.

With NHL participation you could choose this team with a Yahtzee cup or just draw names out of a hat, I think this is going to be interesting.

What would you do if you saw Theo Fleury's name on the team-sheet? Hes been playing beer-league...maybe Robyn Regehr?

Then you're not much of a hockey fan. Are they the biggest names from the best league? No. But these will all be players that passed through the NHL or had name recognition at one point. I suspect you'll be surprised how many you recognize.
