Team Canada Announced

Amid much fanfare, Steve Yzerman and company announced a most impressive line up of some of the game's most notable talents who'll represent Team Canada in Vancouver. For many hockey fans (especially those of us who faithfully rock the red), there was one glaring omission as defense man Mike Green did not make the final list. We are all disappointed in this news (and probably no one more so than Green himself) but there is no question that he will continue to do amazing things as one of the most exciting players in the NHL!

Meanwhile I do have to give a Hockey Mom shout out to Flash (Tomas Fleischmann) who was named to the Czech Republic's squad today, bringing the total of Capitals with spots on their respective country's teams to five!

And on a sad note, word on the street has it that Corey Masisak, Capitals beat writer for the Washington Times, may be another casualty of layoffs affecting the entire Times Sports section. Though HM has never met Masisak directly, I have been an avid follower and admirer of his work for several years and fellow new media pals who know Corey have nothing but praise for the gifted writer. I have no doubt that we will find his insightful writing in a new outlet very soon and I wish him and his fellow colleagues at the Times all the best....
