A glaring omission
Damien Cox picked up on something over the weekend that's been rolling around in my brain the past few weeks:
A year after the fact, it seems even more unbelievable that Wayne Gretzky didn't choose Sidney Crosby for the Turin Games, but did choose Todd Bertuzzi.Now, of course, we all know what they say about hindsight, but I have a feeling that, 10 years down the road, we're all going to look back at Canada's failed Olympic entry in 2006 and wonder why on earth the game's young phenom wasn't there.
Meanwhile, Bertuzzi will likely exist as only a footnote by that point, remembered only as the villain in one of hockey's most notorious incidents.
2010 seems like a long time to wait to see Crosby in red and white.
