Canadian Duo?

With Team Canada executive director, Steve Yzerman, in attendance, two Olympic hopefuls put on an impressive show. Joe Thornton and Dany Heatley both had another productive night, one of many during their first season playing together in San Jose. Heatley had a hat trick, scoring an even strength, powerplay and short handed goal; Thornton assisted on all three of his goals, and then set up one to Patrick Marleau. Big Joe is tops in the League with 24 assists, and Heatley now has the most goals with 17!

Right now, Thornton is on pace for an assist per game, and Heatley could crack 60 goals. This can only be looked at as good news for two Team Canada hopefuls, who before the season started, were among the high calibre players that were thought to be on the “bubble” due to their one dimensional game. The third wheel to this group would have to be Vincent Lecavalier, and the two Sharks are outshining him by far this year.

To see my 2010 Team USA and Team Canada picks, check back tomorrow.
