Canadian Men's Hockey Team



Strengths: Full of proven winners and gritty tough guys, this is the tournament's strongest team up the middle and between the pipes. More bad news for opponents: The Canadians are on a mission to reclaim their sport.

Weaknesses: Ancient defensive squad. World Cup loss takes away fear factor.
