So, we did separate overviews of the US roster here, and the Canadian roster here, but we thought you might like some info on the other national rosters. They’ve all been announced (FINALLY) so here we go!
This post is the rest of Group A, which consists of the US, Canada, Finland, and Switzerland.
I don’t know much about Team Canada, because I’m a filthy American with no respect for Canada’s long and storied history of hockey. Title IX, son! But there are some things I do know, and I am here to impart my glorious wisdom unto you. (Onto you? That sounds dirty.)
So, in the same format as the USA roster run-down, here’s an extremely shallow analysis of the Canadian Women’s Olympic team.
It’s the New Year and both Team USA and Team Canada rosters have been announced. Since this is a blog of filthy Americans, we’ll be doing Team USA in depth now and Team Canada’s outstanding players/notes later – largely because, well, why talk about Canada when you could talk about America? Haha just kidding. (Not kidding.)
So, America. The US team has a wide variety of players, from veterans to young hotshots – and hotheads. How many people who don’t generally follow women’s hockey caught the many US/Canada brawls during the 7 exhibition games played for the Road to Sochi series? But while the fighting is fun, and this blogger lives in hope of seeing Kacey Bellamy break her stick in half and shank a Canadian, there’s a lot more to Team USA than fists o’ fury.
