    I just dont see Kunitz being there let alone being on the first line. When you think of Canada’s dream team there are so many differnt combinations possible, but Kunitz?? Not for this guy

    Corey Perry is a lock to make the team. As if they will leave a 50 goal scorer, Cup winner and Hart winner off the team in the prime of his career. Really TSN LOL

    Crosby is a hard guy to play with, hence Kunitz, who is used to Crosby’s style of hockey.

    The TSN panel explains it on the site in the video “A Tough Task –
    The NHL on TSN panel discusses the challenge of finding wingers to play with Sidney Crosby.”

    I’d start Price over Luongo (and maybe Smith too!)

    With a team with this much talent i dont think you should be so worried about one guy and based on 2010 I dont think theyll be so worrried about bringing a teammate for 2010.

    Thats 4 real scoring lines too and none would be suited for a shutdown role. Give me Bergeron/Toews and Perry or Richards as my utility line.

    Getzlaf/Sharp/Carter would be a terrible line too in my opinion. Obviously you can second guess all day though

    Once you get down to the fourth line Id much rather have guys like Richards/Perry/Ladd/JStaal over Sharp or Carter
