Pleasantly surprised by the apparent change of heart at Hockey Canada with respect to promoting the women's team...usually you have to hire a detective to find this info even on their site...but now here it is as bold as can be...Good.

I hate to be cynical but it may have something to do with the fact there are no NHL players on the menís side....

With the pullout of the NHL I have zero interest in the men's tournament this Olympics. If they had reverted to a pure amateur tournament where we would have seen the best non-pros from each country I'd be all in.

I was never a fan of the NHL players being in the Olympics in the first place so I am going to watch because I'm curious to see how we'll do and I want to support the young players on the team.

and please be sure to thank Canada hockey for overlooking the best young player in the world...Miss Watts.
BC would be in deep doo doo without her.

...The second biggest head-scratcher in women's hockey.

Canada better watch out, I heard that the North and South Koreans are starting to gel. :D

Nope. Not me. I'm not going to waste a single second of my life watching any of the men's tournament. The women's tournament on the other hand, I will follow very closely.

And this is coming from someone who worked Lake Placid in 1980...

I agree, the men's tournament has to be all pro or all amateur (my vote is for all amateur). but this hybrid, not really sure display is useless for everyone.

About the only reason I will watch the men's games is to see Ryan Stoa play again. The women's games? Can't wait till they start!

My wife otoh said she will watch as much of the hockey as she can because she "loves all of the Olympics from the opening ceremony right on to the end."

Exactly my thoughts as well. Have each country send the best team they can put together, either all-pro or all-amateur. If the NHL won't allow their players to participate, then to be fair to all countries it has to be all-amateur, according to a strict definition.

Let's wait to see what happens this year before we, the experts, decide what might be the best format. I just prefer having amateur athletes at the Olympics but let's face it, even the so-called amateur athletes are getting paid somehow or another.

I think the NHL guys need to be there, it should be the best of the best playing in the Olympics. What I would have liked to see is the entire US World Jr team play in the Olympics this year. They would have the advantage of great chemistry just coming off the World Jr's. The way it's set up this year is a joke. I'm really not at all motivated to rah rah the US team with a bunch of has beens and want to be's on it.

Well, the rosters for the other countries say no data. Baby steps by Hockey Canada I guess. The rest of it looks great, that will be handy. I am sooo excited for the Olympics. I had a thought today, about Poulin. In 2010 was it a known fact that she was going to be the next big star, captain clutch and all that? Or did she kind of become a star at that 2010 games? Who is the next big star of Team Canada? I wonder if someone new will make a name for herself at these Olympics. Thereís 9 newcomers. Iíd list them out but itís late and Iíd also have to look them up to get it right. Thoughts?

Or we can keep discussing the NHL, haha thatís fine too.

When I saw the non existent rosters I was thinking that maybe in the next day or two that information might get entered...we'll see.

I had heard (word of mouth in arenas mostly) a fair amount about Poulin and the women's hockey phenom that she apparently was as early as two or three years prior to the Vancouver Olympics and I live half way across the country from where she lived and played. The Team Canada Goaltending Coach for the Sochi Olympics once told me years before the Vancouver Olympics that women's hockey "is a very small community." I guess my hearing about Poulin that early on would be an example and possible proof of his contention.

About the rest, who knows?...other than to say that I have been impressed with Stacey and her work ethic.

Jenner always seems to produce in clutch situations even though she's not new to the team.

And there are a couple that I am surprised are on the team but that is often the case for most fans it seems.

Hahah, quite right DC78-82. If Watts busts out with a Patty Kaz this year, Canada will hopefully have the good sense to get her in their senior program. Sheís already made a case for being part of the program, maybe a Patty Kaz would help Hockey Canada better understand.
