At this point it feels like I'm watching the "SMUG Alert" episode of South Park.

How many people need to get their airtime before they announce? C'mon, no one cares..... everyone watching is just thinking "shut up and announce"

I thought team USA's announcement was corny, for the first 3 minutes I thought this was more appropriate.... man was I wrong, just a bunch of people needing to feel important

Why is Canada being such drama queens over the announcing of the team. Just release the roster.

If you think it's agonizing to watch, I'm the guy waiting for you to tell me because I'm at work and have no TV or streaming video at work.

It's like the hockey message board version of Platos Allegory of the Cave.

Also, Rick Nash sucks and I feel for whoever has to play on a line with him.

Would've preferred Neal over Nash 10 times out of 10.

Yes.

Couture was likely left off because of his upcoming hand surgery.

I would've taken an injured guy like Couture, who may not even be healthy for the Olympics, over Rick Nash.
