It really is good to see so many people step forward. I was honestly thinking when I heard about this, that it would end up being a bunch of mid-level players playing games that I would barley want to see. With some of these names announced, I think I may be changing my tune.

Same goes with A-Rod he is undecided who he is gonna play for. Didnt he grow up in the U.S.? I dont think i agree with the ida that just becuase your name is of certain nationality should not mean you can play for that country.
I don't see that big of a deal, they are using Olympic rules. I mean if they can qualify for the country they feel is their "Home Country" then more power to them...after all this is pretty much an exhibition. As well as the fact it may lend to some teams getting a few stars they might otherwise not get.
