World Cup Of Hockey: Team Canada Roster Announced, Brodie and Giordano Absent From The List

Luckily, these are only the initial short rosters and the final rosters will be announced in June.

Well, it's a little disappointing to find that Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie haven't been included in the roster for Team Canada. But I take faith in the fact that the entire roster won't be finalized until June.

Here's your Team Canada lineup so far:

G Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks
G Braden Holtby, Washington Capitals
G Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens

D Drew Doughty, Los Angeles Kings
D Duncan Keith, Chicago Blackhawks
D Marc-Edouard Vlasic, San Jose Sharks
D Shea Weber, Nashville Predators

F Jamie Benn, Dallas Stars
F Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins
F Jeff Carter, Los Angeles Kings
F Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins
F Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim Ducks
F Tyler Seguin, Dallas Stars
F Steven Stamkos, Tampa Bay Lightning
F John Tavares, New York Islanders
F Jonathan Toews, Chicago Blackhawks

Let's face it, this team is already stacked in the offense and the defense isn't too shabby either. Team Canada has a good chance to win this tournament based solely on the initial roster, but I honestly think that the North American team will give them the biggest battle. Regardless, you can't really argue this lineup so far.

Now we wait for the final roster, Team USA, to be announced...
