In 2009, 46 players were invited to the Canadian men’s Olympic orientation camp in Calgary, but Patrice Bergeron wasn’t among them. Four months later, when the roster for the 2010 Olympic team was announced, Bergeron’s name was there, but a whole lot of other sure-fire, can’t-miss candidates had fallen by the wayside, including Jeff Carter, who’d scored 46 goals the previous year, most among Canadian-born players.
It is why on Monday, when Canada unveiled the preliminary list for the 2014 men’s Olympic camp, executive director Steve Yzerman was at pains to point out that nothing is for sure just yet.

People forget how long eight years really is because a lot can happen between now and eight years from now. For example, our nation could have had two different presidents during eight years, a nation could fall during that time period, and athletes could begin to break down mentally and physically. The Bruins thought that eight years was just right for their guy in net, Tuukka Rask...

Before Patrice Bergeron revealed that he played with a punctured lung, cracked ribs and separated shoulder, Gregory Campbell was the symbol of Bruins toughness.
After taking an Evgeni Malkin shot off the leg, he stayed on the ice and did his job despite incredible pain. Soupy illustrated what it meant to be a hockey player, he showed what it meant to be a Boston Bruin.
