Canada ignites controversy with Olympic roster

From where I sit it looks like Canada is set for gold/doomed to failure at the Sochi Olympics*...

 via thestar.com

I honestly can't believe _______ (forward) was left off the roster. What was Yzerman thinking? It's perfectly obvious that his play with _______ (team) qualifies him for a trip to Russia. Have you looked at his stats/Corsi numbers? His play making ability from ______ (position) would have been perfect on the power play/penalty kill. On defence, it's a no brainer that _______(defenceman) shouldn't be there. He's too much of a risk taker/not risky enough. What this team really needs on the back-end is a commitment to scoring/limiting chances/an all round game. As for the goalies. Why was _______ (goalie) included? He is injury prone/inconsistent/hasn't been tested. What about ______ (different goalie) from _______ (different team)? His numbers make it clear he should have been the starter/back-up. In the end it will come down to which team can gel the fastest/has the most heart/wants it more/adjusts to the bigger ice. In spite of some questionable/brilliant choices, with this roster I firmly believe Canada will win gold/silver/bronze/not win anything.

*Feel free to use whatever names you deem appropriate in the blanks. 
At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
