Shuffling the Olympic lines

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames

They warned us.

As Team Canada took to the ice on Monday for its first practice during an Olympic orientation camp, the 170 accredited media all wanted to see who would be playing with who.

Jarome Iginla

"Don't write too much though. It could all change tomorrow," chuckled head coach Mike Babcock.

Still, when Rick Nash, Sidney Crosby and Calgary's Jarome Iginla were put together, there was plenty of talk.

True to his word, Babcock shuffled the Olympic deck on Wednesday to try out some different combinations up front and on the blueline.

Among the changes was moving Iginla to a line with Mike Richards and Jonathan Toews.

There are three other Calgary Flames in camp, all defencemen. Robyn Regehr was paired with King Drew Doughty, Dion Phaneuf was paired with Hawk Brent Seabrook and Jay Bouwmeester was paired with Minnesota's Brent Burns.
