1998 Canadian Olympic Roster

Canada's Olympic history:
Gold in 1952, 1948, 1932, 1928, 1924.
Silver in 1994, 1992, 1960, 1936.
Bronze in 1968, 1956.

This team has a better overall composition than Canada's World Cup team. Suberb goaltenders Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur.

Lack of leadership will echo the ghost of Mark Messier.

This team must bring the gold back to Canada. The pressure is on.

Mark Messier was an essential part of Canada's World Cup effort, but now he will never have a chance to win an Olympic gold medal.

"We all wish we could have taken some of the players we didn't take," said general manager Bob Clarke. "But we believe this team will be a tremendous representative of Canada and of Canadian hockey."
