    I really think this is an unfair question. Section of Team Canada is totally unknown if things go the right way I think a lot of players will be playing for team Canada before 2014. This could include Chris.

    Not fair to ask a question no when can really answer and not fair to direct the question at Chris. Target or not.

    Ask the same question of a number of other people. Will Jack Smart play , will Gary Cormack, will a different woman?

    All fair questions....

    A more specific question would be on TEAM CANADA 1.

    Remember, we technically had 13 Team Canada members last time round.

    The interest would be in him actually having a shot with the senior team.

    I think that te experince at provincials with two Team Canada members should provide a pretty good indicator. Winnin, though will have notingto do with a deciding factor.

    A better question may be " what excuse will he use if he does not make the team "

    Presently he has a better chance of being noticed and picked to try out than any other player in Canada.

    If he makes the team lets hope its due to his skills not political pressure.

    I hope many new players have a chance to play on Team Canada development team, Jack, Chris and maybe some players from the EAST developing the best takes competitive experience. Team canada says that is there plan, why would we doubt them already, before the development camps are even complete.

    I agree. Team Canada has toured the entire country, and even let the provincial organizations pick who goes to the camps. At that, Chris, obviously is getting a boost up in the exposure department.

    Question; Why would you think he would have an excuse....maybe the coaching staff would have one. I don't think Chris regardless of attitude or not has a fair chance at making a team. Joe and Wendy both have problems with with and regardless of how good he is or not I don't think he will get a fair chance. And matter of fact I don't think anyone does. Jim controls the program right now the program is happy, you would have to see a major failure by a player. Like what happen with Chris S. to see a change. Once you in the back pocket of Joe, Jim or Wendy your in.

    Is Chris in Jim back pocket, I don't think so, I think Jim wanted a good player and Chris was the best around that he wanted.

    I don't think anyone has a chance regardless of what they say.....that is the problem with the program.

    I agree that Chris has an uphill battle, and it may even take a year or two to get a real shot. But remember that Jim is now 60, and Darryl and Bruno are older than Jim. There will be changes in the next 2 or 3 years and Chris is young enough. IF Jim is sincere, and takes Chris under his wing, and IF Chris`s attitude is okay, then it COULD happen. At least Jim seems to be giving him the benefit of the doubt. No one else would even give him a shot.

    I agree with the above. Chris has the desire, I am sure. If he can listen more than talk, he has a long term shot. Joe will not be coaching forever, either.

    When is Jim going to have time for Chris? Team Canada is off to Scotland next week, and provincials are only three weeks away. Are they simply looking ahead to Nationals? There are a couple of other teams that might have something to say about that?

    Are Jim and Darryl that confident?

    Chris should get his opportunity, and I can't see a better way than playing with Jim

    After Natinals, Chris will move up to fifth man
