from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Team Canada is breaking out the big-boy line Wednesday in its quarterfinal clash against the Switzerland-Latvia winner.
At practice Tuesday, Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn was placed on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks, an absolute beast of a unit that has the potential to wreak havoc in the offensive zone.
There's some serious beef and talent in this trio:
• Perry, 6-foot-3, 212 pounds
• Getzlaf, 6-foot-4, 221 pounds
• Benn, 6-foot-2, 210 pounds
"I had a chance to play with them a couple of years ago at the world championships," Benn said Tuesday after practice. "They're obviously skilled players, big guys who like to control the puck, control the play and use their big bodies down low. Hopefully we can find some chemistry."
