Team Toronto Olympic Roster!





This is a Habs blog, and I am in no way a Leafs fan. But I am saddly aware that the Toronto area (often called the GTA) has produced some significant talent in the last 10 years. One would think that Montreal leagues should look closely at what Toronto based leagues are doing with the development of their players.

One area that Montreal does excell at over Toronto is the development of NHL quality goalies.

I was curious to see how many players from the three Team Canada Rosters (the one real one, and the 'second' and 'third' teams as listed in MikeObrand article 'Naming Team Canada's "B team" ') were from the GTA. It's a long list... one full of talent. These are only the players listed on the rosters. No doubt there are countless more players from the area not mentionned.

(in no particular order)

* Defencemen:
P.K. Subban
Alex Pietrangelo
Drew Doughty
Brent Burns
Brian Campbell
Dan Girardi
Kevin Bieska
Christopher Tanev

* Forwards:
Wayne Simmonds
Mike Moulson
Jeff Skinner
Mike Richards
Jason Spezza
Logan Couture
Tyler Seguin
James Neal
Claude Giroux
Joe Thornton
Steve Stamkos
John Tavares
Rick Nash
Jeff Carter

* Close by, worth mentionning...
Corey Perry (Peterborough)
Mike Smith (Kingston)
Matt Duchene (Haliburton)

The list of players from the Montreal area on the Olympic Rosters is composed of few players...

* Defencemen
Kris Letang
Jason Demers
Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Francis Beauchemin

* Forwards
Martin St. Louis

* Goalies
Corey Crawford
Roberto Luongo
Marc-Andre Fleury

Ugh.... at one point Montreal was producing a lot of talented players, but that appears to no longer be the case (if you go by players worthy of being on Canada's roster anyways).
