It is now less than a week until the puck drops on Team Canada’s first game of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. Steve Yzerman has built a Canadian team that has to be considered a heavy favorite to win the gold medal. Anchored by 3 time Stanley Cup champion and the winningest goaltender of all time, Martin Brodeur it is going to be a chore for even the high powered Russian team to score goals. If Brodeur falters then Team Canada has the luxury of turning to Roberto Luongo and Marc-Andre Fleury, two of the game’s best goalies.

In front of Brodeur will be an all-star collection of defensemen including captain Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger, Shea Weber, Drew Doughty, Dan Boyle, Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith.
The collection of forwards on Team Canada’s roster is so strong that superstars like Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Jeff Carter couldn’t even crack the line-up. Team Canada General Manager Steve Yzerman has done an incredible job of putting together a group of forwards that are not only super-skilled, but who also can be relied upon in any situation, including winning key draws, and killing penalties. The forwards include Sidney Crosby, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Dany Heatley, Patrice Bergeron, Brenden Morrow, Jonathan Toews, Mike Richards, Jarome Iginla, Corey Perry, Eric Staal, Ryan Getzlaf and Rick Nash.
