With the additions of Duncan Keith and Patrick Sharp, this year’s Canadian entry at the World Championships is shaping up to be one of the strongest we’ve seen recently. Given how Canada has fared the last few years at the Worlds, that’s a very good thing.

Who should I cheer for this time?
Speaking of throwing up in your mouth, it seems as though Canadian politicians have embraced the 2012 Ottawa Senators as this years “Canada’s Team”.

What follows is a dry look at three goaltenders for the Toronto Maple Leafs this past season.
In no way am I caliming that any of the following information is predictive. All I can tell you is that it is reliable, and takes into account the three Leafs' goaltenders over 81 games this season. Jussi Rynnas is not on the list because he had a single start.

Now that the Canucks have been eliminated from the playoffs **chuckles**, the talk is that Vancouver needs to blow it up, start over, the window is closed, etc. That's a bit ridiculous, considering the age of their very good starting goalie, Corey Schneider, and their twin leaders, the Sedins. Perhaps the coach could go, as a way of shaking things up, and certainly some minor tweaks to the line-up are likely, but a full-blow up is not necessary. This is still a very good team, with lots of assets, depth and talent.
One guy who embodies all three of those descriptors is Roberto Luongo. Considering how good Schnieder is, and the play of Eddie Lack with the Wolves, it would not be a bad idea for the Nucks to trade their former captain, to try to shore up some other areas. And of course, if someone is talking trade, the Leafs must be involved. But, is this realistic?
