Who would you pick for Team Canada?
Thu, February 12, 2009

With only a year to go before the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Steve Yzerman and his management group are already busily scouting players for the roster.

Everyone has an opinion about who Yzerman should name to the team next winter. Here's your chance to pick your own version of Team Canada that will hit the ice in Vancouver next winter.

Who would be your pick to start in net for Team Canada? Which defencemen would you take to anchor the blueline? Which forwards do you think are a lock to play in Vancouver next February?

We'll limit the roster to 21 players -- 12 forwards, six defencemen and three goaltenders -- and we'll give you some help by providing the names of 40 Canadian players who should be given serious consideration.
