If theres no injuries or declines:

It´s not hard to guess who are the goalies:
Nurminen
Kiprusoff
Noronen

I hope eather Nurminen or Kipper will play well enough.

Also very easy to predict the defense.
Niinimaa-Timonen
Lydman-Pitkänen
Berg-Salo
+ Numminen(if healthy, Berg out) ,Väänänen

Forwards:
Kuhta-Koivu-Lehtinen
S Kapanen-T Ruutu-Selanne
Nieminen-Jokinen-Hagman
J Ruutu-Pirnes-Laaksonen
+ Hahl, N Kapanen, Pärssinen

The problem is, there´s only one solid goal scorer (Selänne) and he hasn´t been that solid recently. I dont think the coach Raimo Summanen is very happy seeing Kuhta on the team so, his team is probably something like this:

Selänne-Koivu-Lehtinen
S Kapanen-Jokinen-Hagman
Nieminen-T Ruutu-Hahl
J Ruutu-Pirnes-Laaksonen

Well anyway Team Finland has speed and skill, but they lack size and leadership. If they win Sweden in some thight game, the team spirit can lift them quite high.

The roster Russia should ice:

Kovalchuk/Datsyuk/Zherdev
Samsonov/Fedorov/Kovalev
Frolov/Zhamnov/Kozlov
Brylin/Nikolishin/Chubarov
Kovalenko/Korolyuk/Ovechkin

Malakhov/Gonchar
Zubov/Zhitnik
Kalinin/DMarkov
Tverdovsky/Tyutin

Nabokov/Khabibulin/Bryzgalov

- First two lines are pure offense

- Third line is more compact - all-around

- Fourth line is pure checking and a lot of energy

- Very capable extras - a mix of youth and experience

- The blueline is very strong. A mix of skill and brawn. Some youth to boot as well.

- Goaltending is excellent. Nabokov should start.

The only problem is that they will probably ice a crappy lineup with a bunch of crappy RSLeaguers.

Because someone is going to need to match up with Mike Modano, Sergei Fedorov, Peter Forsberg etc. And Peca is one of the best in the business at it.

Marleau's time will come, I think he'll be on the 06 Olympic Team.

This is true. I didn't know Svatos was a Slovak. He'll still be an extra anyways.

Sven Butenschön?

Well, he has German parents like Kölzig, has a German passport like Kölzig, was even born in Germany unlike Kölzig but because of the fact that he also has a canadian passport he isn't elegible to play for the German team.

He would be eligible if he had played at least two years in Germany, but he hasn't - so no Butenschön!

German article on the matter! (http://www.sport1.de/coremedia/generator/www.sport1.de/Sportarten/Eishockey/__Berichte/__Nationalmannschaft/Hintergrund/eis_20nhl_20roundup_202403_20mel.html)

How about defensemen. I don't know much about Slovaks and european leagues, but european leagues, but they're going to need some help.

Don't know that much either, can just tell of two in Sweden.

Lubomir Sekeras - Signed with Dallas for the playoffs but played most of the season in Sweden. Has seemed a little "tired" and uninspired during the season, but he has skill. He also has a lot of experience, with some seasons in Minnesota for example, but probably won't be on the slovakian roster.

Richard Lintner - One of the best offensive defensemen I have ever seen, always joins the rush, and sometimes looks more like a forward. He though have some problems in his one zone at times, and his temper is a concern. He was suspended for crosschecking a player laying on the ice this season. He hasn't had any luck in the NHL, but often is on the Slovakian National Team, and maybe will be with them in WC as well.

They have six NHL d-men (Chara, Visnovsky, Mezei, Suchy, Strbak, Majesky) some high calibre NHLers but no good depth. Chara though will be a great leader among these players and maybe his precense will lift the others. I have been somewhat impressed with Strbak this season though, will be a good player IMO.

GKJ
04-19-2004, 09:04 AM
ack, forgot about Strbak too. He's definetaly on the Sloakian team over Mezei and Sekeras. It's hard to find out who is Czech and who is Slovak for newer players because ESPN lists them all as from Czechoslovakia :shakehead


I was never too high on Richard Lintner though. Strbak is a player I like though

If I had to pick a Team Canada as of today (and assuming everyone (ie Bertuzzi, Lemieux) are available). I do not believe in writing the team down in terms of lines. I think that is misleading, as lines should probably be changed up multiple times a tournament (if not each game).

Forwards: Todd Bertuzzi, Shane Doan, Dany Heatley, Jerome Iginla, Paul Kariya, Vincent LeCavalier, Mario Lemieux, John Madden, Patrik Marleau, Glen Murray, Rick Nash, Martin St Louis, Joe Sakic, Alex Tanguay, Joe Thornton

Defence: Adrian Aucoin, Rob Blake, Adam Foote, Ed Jovanovski, Bryan McCabe, Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger, Wade Redden

Goaltenders: Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, Jose Theodore

Robertsson 4-ever
04-27-2004, 02:49 PM
Team Finland would probably not have many surprises, the top two lines should be pretty much set... The bottom lines made up of the hard workers that impress the most.

Lehtinen - Koivu - Selänne
Ruutu - Jokinen - Kapanen
Laaksonen - Pirjetä - Miettinen
Nieminen - Kapanen - Ruutu
(Rintanen, Hahl)

Numminen - Pitkänen
Niinimaa - Väänänen
Timonen - Salo
(Lydman)

Nurminen/Kiprusoff
Noronen (he's impressed in his debut!)
Lehtonen

Looks good, but I would rate Hahl over both Pirjetä and Kapanen at the moment. And I would also add Esa Pirnes (LA) and Niklas Hagman (Flo) to the mix, but as you said, the bottom lines could be mixed in many ways. Finland have many hard working forwards but not so much topline material, so the top two lines will be as you have made them. There are no other options.

Here´s my swedish team for the World Cup. I selected 3 goalies, 8 d-men and 15 forwards since quite a few of these forwards are more or less injured. I can´t see any reason to have more d-men either with so few games in the tournament. No Sedins for me thank you.

I like your team there. Only objection I have really is Mikael Renberg and Jonas Höglund among forwards. Renberg, while always putting up points with team Sweden, has been very inconsistent in his play IMO and I think there are better players available. But then again, he could very well miss the tournament even if selected.

Höglund I simply don't think is good enough. One thing to have 2 good games in the WC, another thing to team up against the best in the world. Fredrik Modin has an even better shot and Holmström can take on his role on the powerplay stading in front of the net and in the slot.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the Sedin's don't make the team, but damn if they are not even reserves! ;) :)

No of course several teams could win, but Canada and US are always the top 2 teams when playing on North American soil ... why don't they play this World Cup in India or Mongolia? That would be fair :banana:

Malakhov - Kalinin

Bench : Zhitnik, Zubov, A. Markov, Yushkevich, B. Mironov

Khabibulin
Nabokov

What I really like about this team is that it really mixes the old with the young. That's what you need to win. But this team is not strong enough physically to play on smaller North American rinks ... :(

I didn't include Lemieux or Bertuzzi because of their status being up in the air. Draper should be there...he's the best checking center in the NHL and Canada has enough stars on their club. I originally had Yzerman on the team but he's probably not going to be ready for the tournament. I've got Primeau in his place.

Forwards (15): Tony Amonte, Erik Cole, Craig Conroy, Chris Drury, Scott Gomez, Bill Guerin, Brett Hull, Steve Konowalchuk, John LeClair, Mike Modano, Jeremy Roenick, Brian Rolston, Keith Tkachuk, Doug Weight, Mike York


I've been impressed with the play of Leopold throughout the playoffs...I'd put him on the team over Mara. The rest of my picks stay the same.

Fedorov - Mogilny
Having Fedorov and Mogilny would be nice but Mogilny usually refuses :( , and Fedorov mentioned somewhere he probably won't be going (can't remember the source). Those two just aren't too enthusiastic about international competitions for whatever reason. Of course, neither of them would ever play for Tikhonov but now that he's out of the way... :cheers:

Why do want mike peca when you can have patrick marleua play center

Maybe because Pat Quinn cant exactly stick a guy like Patrick Marleau on say.....Pavel Demitra....and hope that Marleau will shut him down using top notch defesensive skills and gritty play. You cant always go for the most offensive players. You need role players, guys like Peca, Madden, and Draper on your team.

I can't see Peca making this team, there are a lot of guys that can cover guys as well as Peca ie. Draper, Primeau and they have a better offensive upside and are bigger. Peca's production has tailed off lately. I also think Marleau has a real good chance of making this team. Don't be surprised to see Brewer back and if they make the rule they are talking about where each team must have 3 guys under I think 21, Spezza will be there.

I know. Fedorov said that he won't play in an Interview in Sovetsky Sport in January, but when he was interviewed by them again the next month, the reporter told him how the people had reacted to his announcement, and he replied that his decision hasn't been made yet. But he was mainly speaking about the World Champ.

Nedved received a special grant, which allows him to play for Czech Republic now. Represented Czech in a few Tourneys

wilka91*
05-12-2004, 04:19 PM
Guys by the way I don't know if any of you remember, but last summer the IIHF changed its rule regarding players who have 2 citizenships and who want to change teams during their career.
The old rule allowed a player to change teams if he represented the old team before the age of 18. That's why Nabokov couldn't play for Russia in 2002, because he played for Kazakhstan at the WJC when he was 19.
The new rules simply allows a player to change once in his career, meaning that Nabokov can play for Russia at the World Cup but will never represent Kazakhstan again.
The same applies to Nedved I guess. He will play for the Czechs despite representing Canada at the WJC once.

Excuse me but the Czech roster will at least include Jiri Dopita, who despite his lack of success in the NHL (except that 4-goal game), is still one of the Czechs' top 5 players. :)

The World Cup is not an IIHF event therefore IIHF rules do not apply. Remember Nedved played for the Czechs at the 96 World Cup and Peter Stastny played for Canada at the 84 Canada Cup before representing Slovakia at the Lillehammer Olympics. Also the player has to play in that country's domestic league for 4 consecutive years before he is allowed to switch countries. The player must also have not played for his old country during those 4 years. You can say it is more like a residency rule and waiting period before you can switch. So Nedved can play for the Czechs at the World Cup, but not the Olympics.

Here's my Czech Team:

Havlat - Lang - Jagr
Elias - Nedved - Sykora
Straka - Bonk - Hejduk
Rucinsky - Holik - Reichel

There could be slight changes in the lines but IMO that is a very balanced lineup. The major question mark is whether Holik plays. He would be perfect on the fourth line. But if he decides not to play, he could be replaced with either Hrdina or Dopita. Also, straka could be moved to center and Holik could be replaced by other notables including:
Prospal, Vyborny, Dvorak, Hemsky, Baranek, Cajanek, Varada.

I realize that some of these players may not want to play for Russia, that may change though over the summer with a different coach. I didn´t pick Zherdev for his dispute with the russians, he would have been on my roster otherwise.

Forwards like Morozov, V Bure and Afinogenov had to go in order to make room for defensive and gritty players. The talanted Ovechkin could be a dark horse but I don´t think Pavel Bure ever will come back to play hockey. Malakhov and A Markov were also close of making it, I´ve always liked Malakhov's play and he did have a great tournament (loking at the stats) in Salt Lake City.
