2010 Team Canada Orientation Camp Invites

July 2, 2009

The list just dropped today for the Team Canada Orientation Camp that happens in August:

Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, Marc-André Fleury, Steve Mason, Cam Ward

Jay Bouwmeester, Dan Boyle, Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger, Robyn Regehr, Dion Phaneuf, Marc Staal, Shea Weber, François Beauchemin, Brent Burns, Drew Doughty, Stéphane Robidas, Mike Green, Dan Hamhuis, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook

Sidney Crosby, Shane Doan, Simon Gagné, Dany Heatley, Jarome Iginla, Rick Nash, Joe Sakic, Martin St-Louis, Eric Staal, Joe Thornton, Vincent Lecavalier, Jeff Carter, Ryan Getzlaf, Milan Lucic, Patrick Marleau, Andy McDonald, Brenden Morrow, Corey Perry, Michael Richards, Derek Roy, Patrick Sharp, Ryan Smyth, Jordan Staal, Jonathan Toews, Dan Cleary

Some notable players left off here are Chris Osgood, Jason Spezza and Stamkos. I like Osgood, but really he's not one of the Top 3 Canadian goalies and was probably a long-shot to make it at best. Stamkos I like as well, its just his age and the depth at centre that is a factor here. I probably would have liked to have seen him at the camp however, maybe over someone like Dan Cleary or Andy McDonald, just because he has the chance to light the league on fire coming out of training camp.

In terms of Spezza, I'd say I'm a little surprised that he didn't get an invite to the camp at least. Even though I'm surprised...lets not confuse that for dissapointment...as I wan't him nowhere near my 2010 team!
