then your heads in the wrong place
Teemu Selanne will wear the "C" for Finland in his record-tying sixth Olympic
cheap nfl jerseys . The Finnish national mens team announced that the
43-year-old forward would serve as team captain on Wednesday ahead of the
nations Olympic tournament opener on Thursday against Austria in Sochi, Russia.
Finnish web site "Lions" ( was the first to break the news earlier
on Monday. Defender Kimmo Timonen and forward Leo Komarov were named as
alternate captains. Selanne has previously appeared at the Games in Albertville
(1992) as well as the four tournaments for which NHL players have been loaned
out: Nagano (1998), Salt Lake City (2002), Turin (2006), Vancouver (2010) and
now Sochi. In 31 Olympic games played, he has scored 20 goals and 17 assists. He
has won a pair of bronze medals (Nagano and Vancouver) and a silver (Turin). He
was named to the tournament All-Star team and was named Best Forward in 2006.
The Anaheim Ducks winger tied an Olympic record with his sixth appearance in the
Olympic hockey tournament, equaling fellow Finn Raimo Helminen, who appeared in
every Olympic tournament between Sarajevo 1984 and Salt Lake City 2002. Selanne
is the highest-scoring Finnish-born player in NHL history, having scored 682
goals and 768 assists in 1,434 career games with the Ducks, Winnipeg Jets, San
Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche. He is 15th on the NHLs all-time points list
and 11th all-time in goals.

Roberto Luongo wont have any family joining him next month when he suits up for
Canada at the Winter Olympics. The same goes for Swedens Daniel Sedin. The
Vancouver Canucks teammates are both concerned over security at the Games in
Sochi, Russia, after a series of threats and terrorist attacks in the region.
Two suicide bombers killed 34 people in the southern Russian city of Volgograd
in December, and officials say they are hunting three more potential attackers
-- including one believed to be in Sochi. "Its definitely on my mind, Im not
going to lie," Luongo said after practice on Wednesday. "I think were all a
little bit concerned. Were definitely going to keep an eye on it over the next
few weeks." Sedin, who is set to compete for Sweden along with his twin brother
Henrik, said he was "absolutely" concerned about the news coming out of Russia,
including email threats on Wednesday against a handful of European countries set
to participate at the Olympics. The threats were largely dismissed as a hoax,
but the concern over security in Sochi is serious. "We talk about it quite a
bit. Its nothing you can really joke about," said Sedin. "Its in the back of
your head for sure." Luongo, the odds on favourite to start for Canada in its
first game Feb. 13 against Norway, and Sedin both said safety is the main reason
their families wont be travelling to Russia. Sedin added that if family members
wanted to join him and his brother, he would discourage them from making the
trip. An Islamic militant group in Dagestan -- which is located about 500
kilometres from Sochi -- claimed responsibility for the bombings in Volgograd in
a video posted on Sunday. The video also contained a threat to strike the
Olympics. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby voiced similar concerns to those of
Luongo and Sedin to reporters in Pittsburgh on Sunday. "Obviously everybody
watches the news and knows that theres been things happening fairly close to
there," said Crosby, who will captain the Canadian team. "From what weve been
told, I think theyre going to do everything they can to make sure its safe and
secure. Were going over to play and focus on that. "Its not something everyones
totally worried about, but I think its hard not to think about it when things
are happening kind of close to there." Luongo is not the only Canadian Olympian
advising his family to stay at home. Fellow goaltender Mike Smith doesnt want
concern over his young family to affect his play while in Sochi. "Me having two
young kids, my wifes also expecting numbeer three, theyre not going to go.

Phoenix Coyotes played the Calgary Flames. "Its not worth it for myself,
thinking about is she okay whenever Im not with her. Its something thats
unfortunate but thats just how it is." Toronto Maple Leafs forward
James van Riemsdyk, who will suit up for the United States in Sochi, said back
in December that American hockey officials told him that security will be "very
tight." "I know they mentioned things about different actions they were going to
take as far as making sure everythings secure," he said. "It seemed like they
were on top of all that." Minnesota Wild defenceman Ryan Suter, who will also
play for the Americans, said after practice Wednesday that his wife and two
young children wont be travelling to Russia. The long trip is part of the
reason, but Suter said recent news about terrorist threats made the decision "a
little bit easier." Another American Olympian, Suters friend and Wild teammate
Zach Parise, also advised his parents and relatives not to come. He said the
situation is "nerve wracking, thats for sure." Chicago Blackhawks forward
Patrick Kanes parents travelled to Vancouver in 2010 to cheer for him and Team
USA. He said Wednesday his mother, a sister and his girlfriend are planning to
come to Russia, despite the safety concerns. "They understand whats going on,"
Kane said. "Its their choice to go over there, and they wanted to. Ill take the
support for sure." Kane said hes not worried about security in Sochi. "You hear
different things about it, so obviously youre going to think about it," he said.
"But at the end of the day, what can we really do about it? Its not our job to
worry about that stuff. If something happens, its completely out of our control.
If youre worrying about that, then your heads in the wrong place. I think we
have to be worried about going over going there and playing well as a country
and a team and enjoying your time over there, too." The same goes for Kanes
teammate, Jonathan Toews, a member of Team Canada. Toews said his parents and
girlfriend will be in Sochi, despite "that thought in their head" about the
danger. "Everyone is doing everything they can to make sure there are no
dangerous situations. I think our families will be pretty close to where we are
in the village so thatll be a little comfort," Toews said. "We just have to
enjoy it and be confident everything will be all right."
