Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong and coach Ken Hitchcock are all ready representing Canada at the 2014 games. Armstrong is Team Canada's Associate Director of Player Personnel, while Hitchcock will be an assistant coach under Mike Babcock.
The selection of the Canadian team will be parsed and picked apart much like the American Olympic team selection was (sorry, Chris Kunitz), but probably without the helpfulness of an insider look at the process itself. Canada has a wealth of riches to choose from, making them extremely dangerous, as usual at the Olympics.
The Blues will be represented on Team Canada on the player side as well. Both Jay Bouwmeester and his defensive partner Alex Pietrangelo have been selected to the team. If Ken Hitchcock has anything to say about it, they'll be paired together.
Here's Team Canada's complete roster:
Roberto Luongo - Vancouver Canucks
Carey Price - Montreal Canadiens
Mike Smith - Phoenix Coyotes
Shea Weber: Nashville Predators
Marc-Eduard Vlasic - San Jose Sharks
P.K. Subban - Montreal Canadiens
Alex Pietrangelo - St. Louis Blues
Duncan Keith - Chicago Blackhawks
Dan Hamhuis - Vancouver Canucks
Drew Doughty - Los Angeles Kings
Jay Bouwmeester - St. Louis Blues
Jamie Benn - Dallas Stars
Patrice Bergeron - Boston Bruins
Jeff Carter - Los Angeles Kings
Sidney Crosby - Pittsburgh Penguins
Matt Duchene - Colorado Avalanche
Ryan Getzlaf - Anaheim Ducks
Chris Kunitz - Pittsburgh Penguins
Patrick Marleau - San Jose Sharks
Rick Nash - New York Rangers
Corey Perry - Anaheim Ducks
Patrick Sharp - Chicago Blackhawks
Steven Stamkos - Tampa Bay Lightning
John Tavares - New York Islanders
Jonathan Toews - Chicago Blackhawks
It says something that they can leave Martin St. Louis and Claude Giroux off of the roster.
Especially in favor of Chris Kunitz.
