Wonder what the Team Canada washout at the worlds does to Mark Messier’s future with Hockey Canada. We may not take the world’s seriously but Hockey Canada does ......This was a relatively young team that Messier compiled for the Worlds and they looked good until they ran into Russia. There were holes in the team, and they would have been helped immensely by Sidney Crosby or some other Canadian players that were eliminated from the playoffs. It was a young team that needed experience and now has that to build on.
Think team USA could have used John Tavares or Jordan Eberle? They did need a better selection of goalies, Chris Mason and Chad Johnson? Maybe they could have done better there but Messier only has a limited selection of players to pick from and the top players are still playing. He should still have some sort of future there if he chooses it.
