USA Wins WJAC Gold
 
Team USA just defeated Canada West 6-3 to win the World Junior A Challenge gold. :handclap:

The what gold?

When Canada puts in a full country squad like the US then it might actually mean something.

99% of Team USA came from the USHL.

I think what he meant was that Canada has several different squads.

It was a very entertaining game.

Sour much? It means "something" and you're trying to counter a point no one is making.

Agreed, no reason for the snap judgement superiority complex.

SPORTSMANIAC 11-11-2012 09:05 PM

This event is run by Hockey Canada which allows them to have two teams...I don't think they will change it because this event is more of a showcase event then anything else to give scouts a look at kids they might not be on the radar. Same with the World U-17 Challenge with the 5 regional Canadian teams.

Let me guess, the WJC would be different every year if Canada could have all their players.... Get ready to lose that excuse this year too. It means something, not as much as higher levels, but it is still a good sign if you are a USA hockey fan.

20 players on the team. 1 not in USHL = 95%

Yea math!

Maybe not every year but it sure would help. Regularly having 5 or so guys playing well in the NHL compared to pretty much every other country having one max is a big disadvantage

Who cares? You get my point.

Congrats to the U.S. on the win.

Some cheese perhaps with that whine?

IHaveNoCreativity 11-12-2012 12:56 PM

Canada West has gone to like every final at that event...

They just got unlucky...

Our top JR.A's are better then the US's...

We know what would happen if we sent one team...


And the WJC's should be fun...

LukeD 11-12-2012 12:59 PM

Happened to catch that game. Was good, congrats US!

this will be an interesting post when Canada plays the US. Just wondering, does any country have a talent as good as RNH?

I believe it was said on the broadcast that Canada West has never beaten the US in the final but I could be wrong on that.

I think your right.

I know that they've gone to every final ? They beat Canada east...

JrA is better out west, really weak out east, but in the central... I.E Ontario it's strong...

So a Central JR.A TC would be strong... An actual east TC wouldn't be.

I think this event tends to indicate that the USHL is far stronger than any Canadian Junior A league individually.

Canadian Junior A hockey is extremely watered down. Sure, if they made one team they'd probably be more of a challenge to the US' USHL composed team but it doesn't change the fact that the talent is far more concentrated in the USHL.

Apparently it's a really, really big deal to you.


Anyways, congrats to the US on the win.

Is this the standard Canadian excuse? It sounds familiar! :sarcasm:
