Team Canada Olympic Roster: Who's missing from 2010?

Defending champs Canada will be the likely favorites to bring home gold again in 2014 adn they’ve put together one heck of a roster.  I listed it below and put the members of the 2010 Gold Medal team in bold so you can easily identify who’s coming back.

I’ve also included something a little scandalous; the players who were in Vancouver in 2010 and were NOT invited to camp.  A few surprising names there, maybe most glaring is the exclusion of Patrick Marleau and the inclusion of Chris Kunitz.  Seems like since Miracle came out, every GM can quote that they’re not looking for the best players but the right ones.  Either way, here we go…

Who’s the Goalies not returning: Marc-Andre Fleury, Martin Brodeur

Defensemen: Karl Alzer, Jay Bouwmeester, Dan Boyle, Drew DoughtyMike Green, Dan Hamhuis, Travis Hamonic, Duncan Keith, Kris Letang, Marc MethotDion Phaneuf, Alex Pietrangelo, Brent Seabrook, Marc Staal, P.K. SubbanMarc-Edouard Vlasic, Shea Weber

Who’re the D-Men not returning: Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger
