Without Nash,Canada doesn't have a chance to qualify.

GoRapz 08-20-2006 04:19 PM

I have no idea what you were trying to accomplish with that picture. But if it was to scare me, you did a hell of a job :applause:

Twiens 08-20-2006 04:24 PM

Guys, Im talking technically. Do you have to make the WC to make the Olympics? Or is the qualification completely different?

Correct me if i'm wrong but i don't think they have anything to do with each other. The qualifications for the Olympics should be next summer. :confusedshrug:

Gold Medal winner of WC and the host country are already in.


if you don't, you can always try again next year in the regional tournament qualification rounds.

I think there is always an Olympic qualifying tournament. That is what we had to go to after we finished 6th in the World Championships.

Not sure how they works or who plays in that tourney, though.

I'd like to see Canada with a full roster in the Olympics myself.

Twiens 08-20-2006 04:32 PM

Nice. Just happy to hear they still have a chance. Im calling it now, Canada will make the Olympics. I dont see why not, we're better than alot of the teams that usually make it. Our only real problem is that we're young as hell.

kwajo 08-20-2006 04:34 PM

we don't completely suck we still have Magloire, Sam Delambert, Carl English, Juan Mendez, D. Brown, and those couple young kids in HS that are supposed to be top 5 prospects. There is hope for the future

Kobe24 08-20-2006 04:36 PM

Canada has who? Cark English and Denham Brown? One that can't get drafted and another that got drafted in the 2nd round. Magloire is playing? Why isn't he participating right now? I know Dalembert said that he's gonna play for Canada IF they make the 08 olympics...how are they gonna make it if nobody wants to participate t'ill 08?

Yep and, hopefully, Nash will play. Rowan Barrett as well. Levon Kendall from Pitt, too.
