Toews, Sharp and Perry talk Stamkos, Canadian Olympic roster

Some quick comments from a few playuers regarding Steven Stamkos not being part of the final Canadian Olympic roster…

Jonathan Toews:

“It’s a tough situation. Everyone knows that even when he is not at his best he is one heck of a player.  Who knows what he could have accomplished at the Olympics.  That’s a serious injury.  I am sure he did everything in his power to come back.  It’s a huge opportunity for a guy like him to help his country but this is not an injury to mess with.  I am sure it’s hard for him to have to make this decision but at the same time there is a long list of players to fill that spot.”

Patrick Sharp:

“It was tough news to hear.  I know how much he wanted to play in the Olympics.  I think he is the best goal scorer in the world.  It’s a tough loss for the team and the country.  I feel really bad for “Stammer” because I know how hard he was working to get there.  The good thing about our country (Canada) is that we have a deep talent pool and hopefully we can manage the loss.”

Corey Perry:

“It’s unfortunate.  He’s worked so hard to get back and to try and play for Canada.  Everybody feels bad for him.  You have to give him a lot of credit for how hard he worked to try and get back.”
