Video: Guest video blogger Steve Dangle discusses the U.S. roster announcement and what may be on the way for Team Canada (prior to team announcement). 

At Vancouver 2010, both the men’s and women’s Ice Hockey finals featured Team Canada vs Team USA. It would be a long shot to say both teams will be in the finals again at Sochi 2014, but it definitely wouldn’t be unheard of. There is a lot more competition on the men’s side, but it is still safe to say that Canada and the USA are both favourites to bring home hockey gold from Russia.
