Nolan has to be under contract if Garth Snow is going to trade a 1st round pick for him. Crazy is as Crazy does.

Dude, would you put the Blackhawk's acquisition of Versteeg in the same category as the Canucks Paulson and Roy deals?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Bringing back Owen would be awesome for the Canucks. Get some old fashion Irish Canadian grit into the line up.

The rather surprising top twenty in scoring in the NHL.
Five Canadians (the best of whom is in 7th place), three Americans, three Czechs, three Swedes, two Danes (sic!), a Russian, a Belarussian, an Austrian and a Swiss guy. :?


The Canadians have picked up their game. Looking at the scoring charts today it looks like this:

The top twenty now consists of 11 Canadians, 5 Swedes, 3 Russians and 1 American.

Looking forward to the Olympic tournament! 8-)

But what happened to the Finns and Czechs? :|

Just because his dad had a Canadian employer when he was born doesn't change the fact that he is a Swedish citizen, bleeds yellow and blue and plays for Sweden in international tournaments. :roll:

Hmmmm.....

I wonder what is dad is doing now.....

Oh wait, he's a city councillor in Winnipeg. And before that he was a candidate for the Canadian Conservative party. Yeah, he just BLEEDS blue and gold.....so thick that he just couldn't wait to get back home and contribute to his own country. Good thing Alex's dad had a Canadian employer when Alex was born. :roll:

Steen has dual citizenship, he went and played in Europe for a while as a kid, and he played for Sweden internationally because he didn't get invited to play for team Canada.....and rightly so, up until this season he's been a 40-50 point guy.

And there are many people who opt for dual citizenship if it's there for the taking.....it's foolish not to when you consider the doors it can open. Like in Steens case, he had the option to play for a national team that he otherwise would not have had.

Sure, he lived in Canada till he was twelve, and does have dual citizenship, but he only ever played peewee hockey there. He went to high school in Gothenburg in Sweden and started representing Sweden internationally as a 15-yo, so Canada never had a shot at him, since the IIHF doesn't let you represent more than one nation in their tournaments (exception of course when countries split or merge, etc). He played in Sweden up till he signed an NHL contract, so it's not like he "played in Europe for a while as a kid". :roll:

He has played peewee in Canada and NHL. Nothing in between. By the time he signed on for Toronto he had already played 54 caps for Sweden's juniors, including two WJC, so I don't really see when Canada would have had a shot at inviting him... :lol:

Either way, we are splitting hairs. When the Olympic tournament starts, Steen will be wearing yellow and blue.
Thus he is a Swedish player, and suggesting anything else is just silly.
