07:37 AM ET 12.19 | Over the next three weeks, a number of Sharks will learn they're headed to Sochi -- a list likely including Joe Pavelski, Marty Havlat, Tomas Hertl and Antti Niemi. But the competition for a coveted spot on Team Canada is where the uncertainty is greatest with five Sharks said to be under serious consideration -- Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Logan Couture, Dan Boyle and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Others such as Brad Stuart and Brent Burns might have had their names brought up as well. So does it hurt their chances if the Sharks continue to struggle in the weeks leading up to Canada's roster announcement Jan. 7? ... "Obviously they're looking at individuals and how they help their team and what they do with the team systems," Marleau said. "It certainly hasn't helped not having our team winning."

Marleau isn`t going to the olympics...at least not as a player. Why do we keep discussing this?

Hotdog Silva got some mustard slapped on him last time.
