Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans! 

Yesterday, the final World Cup rosters were announced, and there was some suspense when each country announced their rosters, but one thing is for sure and that is the fact that Team Canada which has Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, and Corey Crawford is stacked!!

All of the teams have pro’s on them, but Team Canada has an All-Star Team of pro’s and here is there roster.

Of course if you ask me or any other Chicago Blackhawks fan we will say the most important player on that roster is Toews, but when you compare their roster to say Team USA, it’s as if the American team is a minor league roster, and if you have questions about my statement just look at the rosters side by side.

There is one thing about the rosters that is pretty apparent besides the fact that it looks like an All-Star team compared to the other rosters, it’s the fact that Team Canada gets paid and has by far the highest payroll.

From @GeneralFanger on Twitter,

World Cup of Hockey Roster AAVs:

  • CAN $148.63M
  • USA $125.03M
  • SWE $104.78M
  • EUR $85.32M
  • RUS $83.91M
  • CZE $58.59M
  • FIN $55.65M
  • NA $54.88M

So once we get past the Pittsburgh Penguins vs San Jose Sharks Stanley Cup Final we can concentrate on the World Cup and if any team will be able to defeat Team Canada, but if Toews has anything to say about it will be all Canada!
