Canada Names Yzerman Director of 2010 Team in Vancouver

Steve Yzerman was picked to become executive director of Canada's 2010 Olympic hockey team today, and they could not have picked a better guy. Stevie Y took the Red Wings to three titles and hopefully he can bring his homeland another gold medal in his country's most honored tradition. And in case I forgot to mention, the Games are in Vancouver.

So, in honor of this excellent pick, here's the gold medal game from Salt Lake City in 2002, Canada vs. USA:

Watch For:
- Lemieux sidestepping a pass which ends up in the net
- Sakic being awesome
- Canadians at the bar literally hiding their eyes and biting nails during the game
- Gretzky totally freaking out after the 4th and 5th goals
- A spontaneous rendition of "O Canada" as the clock runs out
