No on-ice drills or practices have taken place as of yet for Team Canada, but at Orientation Camp this morning the media was given a glimpse at what certain forward lines might look like.

For Oilers fans curious as to where their favourite player is slotted, see the lines below.

GROUP A:

FORWARDS:

Eric Staal – Jonathan Toews – Rick Nash

Andrew Ladd – Ryan Getzlaf – Corey Perry

Logan Couture – John Tavares – Steven Stamkos

Mike Richards – Jeff Carter – Martin St. Louis

DEFENCEMEN:

Marc Staal – Drew Doughty

Dion Phaneuf – Brent Seabrook

Jay Bouwmeester – P.K. Subban

ROTATIONAL:

Alex Pietrangelo

Travis Hamonic

Dan Hamuis

GROUP B:

FORWARDS:

Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Patrick Sharp

Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – Jordan Eberle

Milan Lucic – Matt Duchene – James Neal

Taylor Hall – Jordan Staal – Dylan Walchuk (U. of Calgary player filling in for Joe Thornton)

DEFENCEMEN:

Duncan Keith - Shea Weber

Kris Letang – Marc Methot

Dan Boyle – Marc-Edourd Vlasic

Karl Alzner – Mike Green

These combinations are pretty much meaningless at this point in time but it gives an inside look at the minds of Mike Babcock and his associate coaches as they begin to piece together Team Canada for Sochi.
