With NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly officially stating earlier this week that the league has no plans to participate in the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games, Hockey Canada has ultimately decided to move forward with a group of the “very best” non-NHLers available for an exhibition tournament later this year.

Among the players included on the team’s preliminary rosters are four former Toronto Maple Leafs: Mason Raymond, Ben Scrivens, Carlo Colaiacovo and Brandon Kozun.

I bet you haven’t heard some of those names in awhile… How discouraged are you with this news? So far, Canada’s rosters look like a B level team at best, maybe one worthy of a Spengler Cup championship, but certainly not Olympic gold.
