As a proud Vancouver girl , I was extremely excited when I heard that Roberto Luongo was on the roster for Team Canada's Olympic Men's Hockey. Roberto is a extremely talented goalie and in my opinion , was an obvious choice for the roster. Along with Roberto, Marc-Andre Fleury (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Martin Brodeur (New Jersey Devils) will be responsible for saving powerful shots from some of the world's best shooters, such as Russia's Alexander Ovechkin. Team Canada's roster also includes Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh Penguins) , a very well known name in the world of hockey and is strong young contender. But ultimately, the team is in good hands as Scott Niderermayer , who plays for the Anaheim Ducks and is a long time hockey veteran is the team captain. Even though I'm not a regular hockey watcher, I am very excited to watch Team Canada play for the Canadian spirit !
