I don't think it's fair that Ryan Nugent Hopkins is allowed to play. He has a full NHL season under his belt. He's no junior no matter how old he is.

Patrice Bergeron played a year in the NHL as well at the World Championships before he played his first World Junior.

Junior in age, not experience. Lots of kids that play pro in euro leagues play WJC. As long as they aren't 20, the rest isn't relevant. :)

Team Canada always seems to have one shut-down defensive pairing with some size and some physicality, but also some puck-moving. Any chance that could be Reinhart and Pelech? How awesome would that be? I know Pelech seems to be a longshot, but everything I've read about the kid makes me think he's the kind of player coaches might want to choose for team-building reasons.

I think Griff is a lock with his size and first pass. The Russians love to employ that puck-pressure style, so his composure comes in handy too.

As for Pelech, I love his chances- I think that he brings sorely needed size and grit to this defensive corps, and is willing to block a shot- and is good at it too. Canada chooses based on chemistry too, and Adam's a character guy who will know what his role will be. Watch him shine in camp with the other quality players there...I like him as the seventh d-man.

Hey BCB,


whats your take on Pedan not getting the nod from Russia?

I am guessing unless Harrington(who sort of serves the same purpose) gets injured Pelech is a long shot. I could be wrong though. One positive though for Pelech is he seems to constantly make it to team Canada teams and I know once you get into the good books of those programs you have more of an advantage making a team

Politics, sour grapes?

It's similar to Ceci with Canada insofar as both have played for their countries before internationally, but with Ceci you could at least see (sorry) that the competition he would be facing would have made his making the team an uphill climb.

For Pedan, I don't think the same competition is there, though I'm not too too familiar with the potentials on the Russian defense. Maybe someone else can speak to this?

And that's just it...they love him. Quintessential Canadian hockey player, Pelech is.

Interesting side note is that his two older brothers were/are both listed at 6'4''...hopefully Adam at 6'2'' still has room to grow...

Don't know where to put this, but here goes

Joensuus injury (broken wrist) isn't as bad as was first reported, he should be ready to play right after Christmas. Originally he was reported to be out until late January

NIA up 7-0 in 2nd, Strome another 2-1-3pts so far. Kid is on FIRE!

Brain Hemorrhage 12-06-2012 07:58 PM

If Strome only averages 2.5 points per game the rest of the season, I say someone on here write Snow an angry letter, highlighting how Brett Ritchie does all the work on that line with two other Isles prospects!

Strome was stopped on a breakaway late in the second going for the hat trick, still a period to go.

Degen,

Thanks for the updates, and my DVR thanks you as well, lol. 3 games to record tonight (don't think Optimum Cable allows 3 recordings at once) and one on Saturday.

Nice night of hockey for Isles fans...

You probably don't have to record the Niagara game as they seem to replay it on NHLN often tonight and tomorrow anyway. I actually prefer taping the rerun as they condense it to 2 hours - it's better this way since I only pay attention to like 3 guys on the ice.

I'm most interested in seeing Mayfield again.

Kevin27nyi 12-07-2012 12:11 PM

This 2ppg pace by Strome is ridiculous, I expected a 1.3-1.5 pace.

Degeneration Rex 12-07-2012 12:14 PM

Islanders web site has posted 2 videos on Strome from TSN, one by Craig Button and the other
by Mark Masters. Included are some highlights from the incredible comeback against Sudbury
which I saw live and still is hard to believe two weeks later.
