With the Olympics just under seven weeks away, Russia and Sweden have named their respective Ice Hockey rosters, while we Canadians patiently wait until Wednesday at 10:00 am (MT) for Steve Yzerman and company to announce our roster. With months of speculation behind us, we have but a few more days to come up with our own versions of Team Canada. Before I lay out my 'team of the day', let's take a look at what the Russian & Swedish teams have to offer.

The Canucks should be making special wishes to Santa Claus tonight. "Please Santa - give me a win and a healthy roster at the end of the night!"
The Nashville Predators visit Vancouver tonight as the Canucks look to rebound from a woeful and disheartening effort in their last outing. The Canucks have two games remaining on this eight-game home stand and should be looking to win both, starting with tonight's contest against the squad from Music City.

Right now, Blues legend Leadbelly has a better chance of scoring than TJ Oshie or David Backes.
The eight-game home stand continues tonight as the St. Luois Blues visit GM Place to play the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks will look to buck their recent trend of playing well against good teams, and playing poorly against struggling teams. The Blues are struggling right now, so the perfect tonic for them would seem to be to play the Canucks.
