Penguins Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury have been named to the Canadian Olympic team.
Sid was named alternate captain.
Scott Niedermayer has been named captain.
Chris Pronger and Jarome Iginla are the other alternate captains.
Every witty "Rosby" "Cindy" "Crysby" person is gleeful that Sid didn't get the C, as if Crosby will have no impact or leadership role on the team since there's a different letter on his jersey. Clearly Babcock and Yzerman think so little of his leadership skills that they named him alternate captain. Diver.
The full team is available here.
Team USA will be announced following the Winter Classic on Friday.
Brooks Orpik along with former Penguins Ryan Malone, Ryan Whitney and Rob Scuderi are possibilities to make the team.
