Cool, we'll see if he can handle that end of the game as well as he did on the ice. I think he'll be fine, his playing experience will help and most of the selections are usually no brainers anyways.

"I think he'll be fine, his playing experience will help and most of the selections are usually no brainers anyways." Not after Canada's showing the most recent Olympics. I think some of the regulars need to go. A shake up of sorts. Its not a dig on the team, just my opinion. If he's learned anything from Holland and Devellano, we'll soon find out. Mark

hope he does. yzerman playing=gold medal. not playing, no gold medal. guys like blake and foote don't belong anymore, and players coming off injury shouldn't even be considered unless they are named crosby. i still don't know why they picked headcase berty over shannahan at the last olympics but oh well.

Mark i agree. I don't think some of the selections were the no-brainers that should have been there. Lots of debate last time out with who got picked that wasn't based on how they were playing. Actually Bert played quite well for the most part, the team as a whole played like ass and for any fingers pointing at Bert you could point 10 more at other players. I do agree that Shanny needed to be on that team though.

Shanny brings much more in heart and talent than Bert does. Yeah, I said it. If you look at Shanny's career, he's always stepped up in big games and scored big goals when needed. He is first to drop the gloves whe called upon. He's a huge asset to any lockerroom, while Bert is a distraction. Mark

Definitely without a doubt Shanny has proven to be the better player throughout his career. Bert had and still *may* have the potential to possibly be even better, but has yet to materialize. At any rate there's nothing Bert can do anymore to have a better career than Shanny has, he can only hope for a few better years which is still highly unlikely. Heart without a doubt, talent can be debated. Bert has some sick skill for a big man when he's in the mood, but then again that goes back to the heart issue and Shanny's dwarfs Bert's. Shanny has been much more "clutch" and has the rings to prove it.

lol @ wc17 the ACC is where mediocre careers go to die. And, god forbid, if a good player is signed by the loafs, he goes to pot very quickly. Only getting traded will allow him to play well again. Mark
