Schwartz made Team Canada which is a very tall order for an NCAA player.

Maybe he will pull a Pettinger: Have a big WJC, come back for a game to watch his highlight video and then bolt for MJ. That's the only thing that would actually be hilarious. Anyways, congrats to him for pulling the near-impossible task which he did....

This is the second time some bozo has made a comment about Schwartz either not scoring for team USA against RPI or not making team USA.

Me thinks this guy is a CC fan trying to impersonate a DU fan to make us look like idiots.

If you acutally are a DU fan, please stop posting sir, you are embarrassing us all.
