Morning Line- Sean Burke

“We go into PyeongChang believing gold is realistic. The last time that Canada wasn’t favoured was back in ’94, and I played in ’88 and ’92 so I remember those days very well. But even then, when the Russians were so powerful and the Czechs weren’t far behind, you still went into the Olympics expecting to compete for a gold. Nothing is going to change this time around. But we know there’s a lot of work to do and that things are different. We have to build our team differently. We’ll be as prepared as we can possibly be when we go into PyeongChang to compete for a gold, and that will give us a chance to win.”

-Sean Burke, GM of Team Canada.  Andrew Podnieks of IIHF.com has more on Team Canada.
