The End to All Team Canada Speculation

2007 NHL Awards Portraits

As the announcement was made on NHLNetwork in the States and TSN in Canada, NHL Hot Stove was on board and prepared to drop the news to
you directly after the announcement.

The selection, in order as it was announced:

Bob Mickelson: “This is a day every Canadian has been waiting for” and those words have never been more true.
Mike Chambers: “…a first ever Olympic Mens Ice Hockey win at home, on home ice.”
Steve Yzerman: (huge ovation) “….like all Canadians we are very excited to be here.  For all hockey fans, it’s a great day.” “This has
been an enjoyable process, but, a difficult one.” “Every player on this roster was put on after great debate.” “We feel we have a team
that will make Canadians proud…….and compete for a Gold medal which all Canadians know that we can achieve.”

Goaltenders:

Martin Brodeur (Montreal, Quebec)
Marc Andre Fleury (Sorel, Quebec)
Roberto Luongo (Montreal, Quebec)

TSN Bob McKenzie: when asked who the starter would be amongst the panel by James Duthie: “…the answer is Martin Brodeur.”
Roberto Luongo: “I will do anything I can, no matter what my role, to bring my country Gold.” He also made mention of how excited he was to
be selected and to be playing on home ice.
