There they are! Vote for the team you think is the hottest. The winning team will be awarded the gold medal, second most votes silver and the fewest, bronze. Voting will go until December 31, 2009 at 11:59 pm! You can vote as many times as you like. Voting is much shorter this year than it has been in years past because it's more fun this way.


  1. Team USA, because of Rick DP, Goose, and David Backes.

    Patrik Berglund and Patrick Sharp are very tempting though too...

  2. Gurl, where is Marc Savard at Center for Canada?

    Based solely on that and VLADO, I vote for team rest-of-planet. >:O

  3. Yo, I love Nystrom's homage to Ned Braden.

  4. Team USA. You can't argue with a hockey player striptease and the Goose. I'd imagine you can't really argue with Ricky D. either.

  5. It feels wrong to vote against Goose, but God bless Canada.

  6. I'd imagine you can't really argue with Ricky D. either.

    I can! He's like a Goaltender Ken doll.

  7. Canada. Hands down. Sorry, Drewiske.

  8. WOW what a difficult choice. Team Rest of Planet beats Team Canada and Team USA by a hair.

  9. Team Canada - as much as I adore the Goose, Kris Letang does it for me in a big way.

  10. Oh, and how did I miss that striptease? Funniest thing I've seen in quite a while.

  11. Team Rest-of-the-Planet. NIKLAS HJALMARSSON!!!!!!!! <3

  12. rest-of-the-planet.....hott! whooo

  13. Sobotka doesn´t come from Czechoslovakia!! Czechoslovakia doesn´t exist! It´s just Czech republic.
