WC08: More Sens to world championships

Two more Sens players have been added to their respective national team's rosters, Christoph Schubert (Germany) and Martin Gerber (Switzerland). Both of them have played for their teams in the 2002 and 2006 winter olympics, Schubert's been to four world championships, and Gerber's been to five.

Apparently Gerber didn't play enough during the regular season and playoffs, he had to go and play some extra games in the world championships. Team Canada fans probably remember when he shut out Canada 2-0 in the 2006 Olympics. As for Schubert, it will be interesting to see whether Uwe Krupp, head coach of the German team, plays on the top line as well as the the top defensive pairing, and gets 40 minutes of ice time per game.

Also going to the tournament are Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley, both for Team Canada. No other players have been announced to date, to my knowledge.
