TV:

With the 2014 winter olympics in Sochi quickly approaching, Steve Yzerman has the task of selecting who will be representing Canada on the squad. With the abundance of talent Canada has in hockey, there has been a lot of debate on which players should or shouldn't be selected. The team will be officially announced on tuesday morning, so for now we could all pretend to be Yzerman and compile our own rosters; here is who I think should be on the Canadian roster.

We'll just have to wait and see how Yzerman will structure his team, i'm assuming he will go with a lot of the same players that represented Canada in 2010, but you never know who will be left off the squad with young players like Matt Duchene, John Tavares, Jamie Benn and Steven Stamkos who have been playing well of late.
