We knew that the roster for the American Olympic team would be announced today and that it would be during the Winter Classic. What we didn't know was that it would be after the game. When Noodles found out, she started cursing at the television and threatening people's lives. It was scary.
And she wrote up her own roster to see how close she was to what Brian Burke picked.
This was hers:
John Michael Liles
Brian Burke's picks...Roster.
Uh, they're pretty damn close. Except for that fact that she totally forgot that Paul Martin existed and that he could actually play for the team. And we are surprised that Erik Johnson and Jack Johnson made the team. It's kind of amazing.
An article about Team USA's picks and what it means for the future for USA Hockey.
Another article about the team and who the big stars are for them.
The Hockey News article talks about how Team USA lacks experience but not skill.
A Calgary restaurant is claiming that some of the Edmonton Oilers players, staff and management argued with them over a $17,000 bill and then didn't want to pay it all.
Wow. We can't believe that this would happen.
Off with his head! Steve Yzerman will be the man to blame or praise with whatever happens with Team Canada. THN has an article about it that's pretty interesting.
PS - what an end to a Winter Classic...
