Mario Lemieux was the unofficial greybeard of Team Canada when the last World Cup of Hockey was played 12 years ago. This time around, the role falls to 37-year-old Joe Thornton, who played alongside Lemieux in 2004 and is being counted on this time for leadership and talent that have withstood the test of time. Thornton finished fourth in NHL scoring last season, compiling 82 points in 82 games for the San Jose Sharks.
