    Fair or unfair...those three would likely comprise Canada's fourth line.

    No Hamilton - slightly surprised...

    I know he wouldnt make the team but i see Dougie being a part of the team in the future.. would be good exposure IMHO

    Wow - Marchand with the invite but no Jamie Benn. I get they have different styles, but on a macro level this surprises me.

    Can I root for a fantastic season for these guys, interrupted by a horrific two-week slump in February...?

    I can't see Lucic making it only because of the bigger ice surface, but if he has a good 1st half he may have a shot. Bergeron I think will be the teams 2nd center. Marchand may go if he & Bergs have a good half.

    "The Chicago Blackhawks have the most players invited with five, followed by the Pittsburgh Penguins with four and Boston, Los Angeles and Washington with three each."

     

    Might as well pick from the most recent SCF champs.

    If the Canadian squad doesn't win the gold medal, will there be fire Claude threads?

    Congrats to the 4 Bruins invited!

    Everyone says the big ice would hurt Lucic but I don't see it. He would be on any team I could pick from any group of players. He's a monster and a competitor. And he's faster than many think. Sidney would love to have him on his wing.

    I can Lucic making it because he's a known crunch time performer.

    This is the 2nd time in a row that Yzerman invited him to camp. He knows exactly what he's getting with Lucic and clearly isn't concerned about his chances on the big ice. I agree with you completely. If Lucic stays healthy he's making the team.

    I hope Lucic does make it, but going by hockey people's assessments the bigger ice surface is a concern. Now he may come to camp & be great at the Father David Bauer arena, C.O.P & the O' Oval;  those worries will no longer have any validity. I know I can't wait for the camp in Calgary and I'll do what Bad Hab did with regards to the prospects & let everyone know how the team looks. Especially the goalie's.

    LOL! I remember in 2010 when Thomas went in the net with a 6-0 lead. I was hoping for a total collaspe by him & the US. So, knowing how I felt about Timmy at that time. That should make you feel better Fletch.

    Lucic makes this team. Kevin Lowe is very high on him and why shouldn't he be? I'd put Marchand on it too but that might be a bit too much to ask for. For my money Lucic and Marchand are your prototypical Canadian big tournament players - money players.

    Nite, it sounds like it may just be an orientation - no ice time at all. Has to do with insurance reasons.

    Canada took bertuzzi back in the day.  Looked terrible.  if lucic makes it who doesnt?   He gonna beat out perry, giroux and others?   I dont see that happening.  Marchand has a real shot bc he kills penalties and would work well with bergie.   Lucic is very prone to bad penalties as well.   

    would love to see him in that jersey.  I just dont see it.

    Re: 3 B's invited to Team Canada Camp...

    I understand the dynamic behind the concern of Lucic on the larger European ice despite my feeling among those who believe he's quicker than he sometimes appears as we witnessed several times during this year's playoffs.  Was it vs the Leafs we saw him zip around their D and bust in on Reimer? 

    My question is within the context of the game itself and the manner in which they both perform their respective positions, why would the ice size over there be more of a concern for Lucic up front and not for Chara on the back end?

    I'd say Bergeron is a lock, with Marchand having a better chance than Lucic.

    Kind of shocked to see no Cam Ward, Jason Spezza and to a lesser extent Fleury, who even with his struggles I think will have a bounce back year. Ward and Spezza obviously coming off injuries but both are healthy now.

    Yzerman has said that players being able to skate will be a big factor.   I dont think lucic would hurt you but a guy like marchand has played awesome for world juniors and his speed penality killing would be idea on a team like this.

    Yep.  Cam Ward and Girardi were surprises along with Benn.  I hope it's Price in goal.  Wear him down.

    Since Rask will probably be playing...

    ...Oh boy...what have I done...
