Team Canada Number 1, 2 and 3

I was going to wait until tomorrow's announcement, but I may as well jump on the prediction bandwagon. My thought is that there is such depth in this country that Canada would probably be able to enter two or even three teams that could contend for a medal.

Firstly, my Team Canada.
Pretty straightforward, the only real question marks are Mike Green as the seventh defenseman and Toews as the 13th forward.

My team Canada number two includes quite a few that could very well be first teamers and in my opinion would be a very solid contender for a medal. The first two lines would be the best line on most Olympic squads save for Russia and Sweden. This defense core would have to be considered the second best defensive septet in the Olympics. Turco, Price and Mason are as fine a trio of goalies as most other countries could produce.

My Team Canada Two.

And now Team Canada Three.

A scattering of ex-Olympains on this squad and a fourth line of James Neal, Travis Zajac and Ryan Clowe would definitely cause some trouble. The defense drops off somewhat precipitously and the three goaltenders have a few questions, but there is no reason this squad couldn't beat some of the world's best squads.
