We don’t have a single complaint about the roster unveiled by Stevie Y and his team this morning. We’d mentioned previously that we didn’t want Pronger on the team, but his inclusion makes sense, his dirty play may impose some fear in the opposition. Nidermayer being named captain? Our only surprise was that decision was made and announced today. We dig the fact that Drew Doughty is on this team, and that while the team is young, they do have a fair bit of experience. We also like that there a few tandems or lines that have come together, such as the Sharks top line and the Blackhawks pair of Keith and Seabrook. And, of course, you gotta love how much BC is represented.

Let the countdown begin.
