Canada 2022

Created by: brenfox31
Initial Creation Date: May 19, 2020
Published: May 19 at 9:16
Team: 2019-20 Custom Team
Team Explanation
There are a lot of qualified players eligible for this team, and seeing as it would hypothetically exist in 2 years it is hard to know who of the older guys might regress, and who of the younger guys might improve enough to make it.
I also based this somewhat on the lines that I created, as I see really dominant lines here rather than necessarily the best players in the highest lineup spots. There are some guys who I would argue are better than the older veterans on this team, but I think the veterans are likely to get picked because this is international hockey.

These are my picks for the team and the lines, and I welcome any opinions on who you would take instead, but please be respectful. There are a lot of qualified players and I made a lot of decisions based on who I think will get picked, rather than who is necessarily the best.

Scratches are defencemen who are very close to making it.
IR are the forwards who just miss the cut
LTIR are the other goalie options

Marchand and Bergeron will be done. I'd give their spots to Konecny and Barzal.

Same with Doughty and Gio. And won't Makar be team NA?

Wrong for 63-37. Worst-case, Marchand will be there, not Bergeron due to their depth at C but he still has a chance. Barzal is probably there anyways.

2 years is a long time... I'm still guessing they make it but to play it safe I'd make another line without them on it.

I think Marchand will still be around, I would be very close to giving Bergeron's spot to Barzal but I know the management of these teams typically take the older guys with international experience. Doughty and Gio, Doughty's contract all but guarantees he will be around for a while longer and again, the experience and veteran presence would make him pretty valuable. Giordano I could see retiring the year before this, so i would probably put someone like Theodore/Morrissey/Ellis in his spot.

For Makar, I don't know if they're going to do another North America team, and this was purely hypothetical since we don't know when the next international event with NHL players will be.
