    I’m surprised Bryan Little didn’t get an invite.

    Look for Team Canada to add 1-2 forwards, 2 defensemen
    and 1 goalie after Rd. 1 of the NHL playoffs.

    Forwards likely to be asked: one or two of Toews, Getzlaf, Stamkos, Richards, Giroux, Briere, Lucic or Patrice Bergeron.

    Defensemen likely to be asked: two or three of Doughty, Keith, Seabrook, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Coburn, Ference.

    Goalie likely to be asked: one of Crawford, Bernier, Roloson or Luongo

    Add Corey Perry to that list!
