Olympic snub? Hardly

Jordan Wiebe, Lethbridge, Alta.

I am tired of hearing people use the term "snub" when referring to those who were left off of the Canadian Olympic team.

Steve Yzerman and his team did not turn up there noses at the non-Olympic notables such as Mike Green and Jay Bouwmeester just because.

They were being considered for arguably the best team in the world and they were just not the right fit.

They are amazing players who have most likely never been cut from any team in their lives.

Don't feed me this garbage about them being snubbed. They were not selected and that is it.

No more, no less.
