BoC at the Olympics

All this is based on my eyeball-scanning of Olympic rosters per this site.  If I've neglected any current or former Ducks, Kings, or Sharks, let me know -- this should provide an easy rooting guide for California hockey fans (all thirty-nine of us)

Country Current BoCers Former BoCers
Canada ANA - Perry #24, Niedermayer #27, Getzlaf #51
LAK - Doughty #8
SJS - Marleau #11, Heatley #15, Thornton #19, Boyle #22
ANA - Pronger #20
United States ANA - Whitney #19, Ryan #54

Czech Republic SJS - Michalek #9
Slovakia LAK - Handzus #26 LAK - Stumpel #15, Visnovsky #17, Palffy #24, Demitra #38, Strbak #77
Switzerland ANA - Hiller #1, Sbisa #47 ANA - Gerber (injured)
Germany SJS - Greiss #1 LAK - Tripp #21
SJS - Ehrhoff #10, Sturm #19, Patzold #32, Goc #57
Belarus ANA - Salei #24

I'm proposing, based on the above, that we each assign an Olympic underdog to its most uniquely-supportive BoC team -- Kings fans take Slovakia, Ducks fans take the Swiss, and Sharks fans take the Germans.  Let's all learn some foreign cheer phrases and litter BoC comments with our new knowledge.

Or whatever -- I just wanted this for personal reference, as games get underway tomorrow.

Update 9:25 am -- via Bob McKenzie's Twitter:

Jeff Carter has been told his services are not required. Getzlaf on the team.

Go BoC.
