The Big Six

Here's a look at the top Hockey playing countries and their chances at the upcoming Olympics in Turin, Italy.
We're less than a week away from the United States and Canada naming their Olympic hockey rosters (Dec. 19 for the U.S., the 22nd for the Canadians). It should be a tough tournament for both teams, who will vie with 10 other countries for medals. Others in the tournament include likely quarterfinalists Slovakia and Germany as well as Italy, Switzerland, Latvia and Kazakhstan.
Basically things are looking pretty good for the Canadians... not so good for the Americans.

    I think that article is really underestimating Canada's capabilities. They have to be favored over the Czechs at this point.
