TSN and CBC have recently conducted a pole to see who should represent Canada at the 2010 winter Olympics in Men’s Ice Hockey and the results are hard to argue with.  The Calgary Flames are represented by three players; Jarome Iginla, Dion Phaneuf and Robyn Regehr.  Roberto Luongo and Martin Brodeur were the top two goaltenders while Sidney Crosby, Jasan Spezza and Dany Heatley were among the top vote getter’s on the offensive side of the team. 

Obviously with this happening two years early many things could happen but no matter who is on the team I will be excited to watch them play.

Who do you think is missing?

Heated Blades Not Working?!

After four NHL players tested the new heated blade technology the NHLPA gave a big thumbs down for the approval of them.  Toronto’s Mark Bell, Chicago’s Martin Lapointe, Detroit’s Kris Draper, Edmonton’s Marty Reasoner and Calgary’s Matthew Lombardi all used them and Reasoner was the only person who thought they performed well. 

Wayne Gretzky became a part-owner in the company and has stated that this product would revolutionize the game of hockey.

Therma Blade is a battery operated skate blade that heats up when you go on the ice and supposedly allows you to skate faster and accelerate quicker.  These claims appear to be false.
