Yesterday, Martin Brodeur told French-Canadian journliast Renaud Lavoie that although Brodeur wouldn't pick himself for Team Canada, he would go to next February's Sochi Olympics if asked -- even as a third-string goalie. That got me to thinking, which Devils are destined to play for flag and country in a year's time? So, after looking at the Devils' current roster, here's an extremely early roundup of players I think will, could or won't get the call next year. Again, this is all my random guessing based on players I think have a shot. Here goes.
Definitely Sochi bound: Patrik Elias (Czech Republic), Ilya Kovalchuk (Russia), Anton Volchenkov (Russia)
As long as they keep this up: David Clarkson (Canada), Andy Greene (U.S.)
