Vancouver’s Rooting Interest In Team Canada

from Jordan Bowman and Wyatt Arndt of the Vancouver Province,

 ...the roster is comprised of some NHL players who, as Canucks fans, we are used to hating (a Boston Bruin is on the team!). So, in the spirit of national unity, here is how we talk about each player during the season, and how we will talk about him during the Olympic tournament.

JAY BOUWMEESTER

During the season: Not a biggame player at all. He played more than 700 games before making it to the playoffs. What a loser.

During the Olympics: Playoffs take such a physical toll on a player's body, so it's great to have Bouwmeester. He's 30, but has the body of an 18-year-old.

JONATHAN TOEWS

During the season: Captain Serious? More like Captain Overrated.

During the Olympics: We respect how Toews is embracing the sombre stereotype of the host country, Russia!
