In praise of Bobby Ryan
"The biggest thing is just his poise and his hands are unbelievable. I played with [Evgeni] Malkin and [Sidney] Crosby, and those guys are probably the two best in the league. Bobby's hands are right with those guys... He's a superstar in the making, it seems."
---Ryan Whitney, former Ducks defenseman

Olympic schedule for men's hockey

The 2010 Winter Olympic games started last week with the opening ceremonies Friday evening. Most of the NHL players still had games to attend over the weekend and would join their respective national teams early this week. Our hometown heroes will be generously represented on the rosters of four different country teams.
