Now do Team Canada with a Team North America in the picture.

I think the only guys affected on my roster would be Point and Marner. So take them off and replace them with O'Reilly and Stone.

And McDavid. But yeah Team Canada will be fine.

Pretty ridiculous depth when a player like Taylor Hall, one year removed from a Hart and still in his prime, doesn't make the cut and I'm struggling to pick a player to take of your team to include him.

To top that off, I forgot Stamkos. So he probably takes Monahan's spot there and bumps Marner or Point or someone.

For some reason I had thought that Stamkos had dropped off a bit in recent years, but 98 points last year and 86 the year before.

Yikes. McDavid is still only 22. That's...pretty ridiculous.

And MacKinnon is turning 24 this year. I thought he was older.

Team North America

Matthews - McDavid - Marner
Dubois - Point - MacKinnon
Hughes - Eichel - Barzal
M. Tkachuk - Larkin - Boeser
Tuch

Werenski - Jones
Chabot - McAvoy
Girard - Ekblad
Dermott - Deangelo

Hart
Blackwood

The only weakness is goaltending.

I did like Team North America, it was a fun thing in the tournament but on reflection it was sort of one of the things that kind of held it back from being a tournament that I took seriously. So long as Canada and the US are forced to play at 85-90% strength it makes any other winner but those two teams illegitimate.

Here's my crack at the US, who also might have the best roster they could ever put together:

Tkachuk-Matthews-Kane      
Gaudreau-Eichel-Wheeler      
Atkinson-Larkin-Pavelski      
Guentzel-Trocheck-Oshie      
Kessel-Lee         
         
Werenski-Jones         
Suter-Carlson         
Slavin-Byfuglien         
McDonagh-Trouba         
         
Bishop
Gibson
Hellebuyck         

I mostly just did this by looking at Americans based off points. Still a pretty good roster. Their bottom 6 forwards don't have as many elite players as Canada but they aren't taking actual bottom-6 players anymore either. Also have a hell of a defence while their goaltending is pretty much even with ours. And I ended up leaving off a number of pretty good players that could fit (Kreider, Boeser, DeBrincat, McAvoy, Pesce, Yandle, Krug).

Here's Sweden for good measure:

Forsberg-Backstrom-Arvidsson
Landeskog-Lindholm-Pettersson
Nyquist-Zibanejad-Nylander
Johnsson-W.Karlsson-Silfverberg
Soderberg
Backlund

Hedman-E. Karlsson
OEL-Ekholm
Dahlin-Lindholm
Klingberg
Edler

Lundqvist
Lehner
Markstrom

No top of the league scorers but man alive is that a good defense.

Welcome to Alberta, where mega-rich billionaire owners of both hockey teams are too cheap to fund their own arena builds.
