Team Canada Announces Coaching Staff For Men’s Olympic Team

from IIHF.com,

The coaching staff was named by Canada’s National Men’s Team management group, comprised of executive director Steve Yzerman (Tampa Bay), along with Doug Armstrong (St. Louis), Ken Holland (Detroit), Kevin Lowe (Edmonton), Bob Nicholson (Hockey Canada) and Brad Pascall (Hockey Canada).

Babcock, Hitchcock and Ruff were all members of the Canadian men’s hockey coaching staff at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver where Canada won its eighth Olympic gold medal.

The 2014 Olympic Winter Games run from Feb. 6-23, with the men’s ice hockey tournament going from Feb. 12-23.

“Canada’s coaching staff has a great deal of international and professional experience for the challenge that awaits us in Sochi,” said Yzerman. “Mike did a great job setting the foundation for our gold medal win in Vancouver, and I know that with Ken, Claude and Lindy working with him, our team will be very well prepared.”

Well, this was anti-climactic.  Probably the only suspense is, “Who’s in net for Team Canada?”

Hate this.

Kenny, get on the phone and get a Top 4 d-man, and forget about this Olympic crap.

I like our team.  Having those guys back is like a free agent signing.
