Defense
Shayne Gostisbehere — LD — Union — A revelation as a true freshman last season at Union, Gostisbehere only continued to impress this summer in Lake Placid. He really came out of nowhere to get drafted, but continually reenforces Philly’s decision with his play. With great skating and tremendous offensive awareness, Gostisbehere can be a threat at both ends of the ice. He understands his physical limitations in the D-zone and makes up for it with a good defensive stick and sound positioning. He has the ability to exploit the big ice with his skating and vision, which will help supplement the offense should he make the team. Gostisbehere has been a point-per-game player with five goals and eight assists in 13 games. He also has played on the big stage as part of Union’s Frozen Four team last year and that experience certainly counts. The U.S. has a pretty tough decision when it comes to Gostisbehere, Grzelcyk and Reilly. It is unlikely they will take all three as they’re each similar, so it comes down to defending. That’s where I think Gostisbehere has an edge and what I believe will put him on the team. Philadelphia Flyers

Can't wait! :xsign:

I really hope he makes it and can show what he's capable of on a larger stage.

PhilaFlyers 12-05-2012 12:13 AM

Here's the schedule
http://www.tsn.ca/world_jrs/feature/?id=62670

All USA games will be broadcast on the NHL Network.

CS 12-05-2012 11:44 AM

If he plays at the same level he did during camps this summer, then he will have no problem making the team.

RJ8812 12-05-2012 11:58 AM

the games are at the worst times. I doubt I'll watch any of them live

Yeah it sucks, it was a lot more convenient when it was in Canada.

Canada or the US is great. Hell, even western europe isnt too bad.

So he made it? Sweet. We haven't had anyone play in it since Giroux, right?

He didn't make it, but he's a very strong bet to make it. Bertilsson(no longer our property) played in '10-11, and Couturier played before his draft year, so he wasn't our property yet. JVR played in 3 from 07 to 09. Giroux played in 08.

Giroux was the last Flyer(property) to play for Canada.

Thanks for posting the schedule Schenn Couturier. If Gostisbehere makes it I might try to watch the Russia vs. U.S. game. Are Galchenyuk (Sp?) and Kuznetsov (is he still eligible?) going to be on team Russia?

Galchenyuk is American, and will be on Team USA. Kuznetsov is not eligible. Were you thinking of Grigorenko(Russia) when you said Galchenyuk?

I'm pretty sure Noebels played for Germany last year too.

I must admit I can't wait to see Gostisbehere play at the world juniors, it appears he's probably a lock to make the team and once he makes it he'll probably be having a top four role for the U.S.

True, and I also don't think I'll be watching games live. But I'm sure TSN is going to have all of the games that they broadcast on video on demand, so there's not much to worry about. I prefer to watch them on my own schedule anyways.

Yeah but it sucks that you have to try and avoid seeing the scores on HF and twitter.

Meh, for some reason I don't really care that much about this tournament anymore

I don't go to twitter and I can avoid HF for a couple of hours no problem. Last year, for example, I clicked on discussion threads before the games started, so that when I saw one game, but not the others that were already played I didn't have to go to the boards, but directly to the thread discussing that particular game. And I did actually know a lot of score beforehand anyway, but to me the tournament isn't only about scores, but also about watching and trying to evaluate how good the up-and-coming prospects are. So the games were still plenty of fun, although I did suck in a way that the only games I saw live were the ones TSN didn't cover, i.e. the "less interesting" ones like Latvia vs. Denmark and the like :)

I have been losing interest over the last few years but with no NHL I actually wanted to watch a lot of this years.

But I believe it was the B pool, IIRC.

Yeah you're right, he played in the 2011 WJC though.

Oh,:facepalm:no to be honest I was thinking of Yakupov. I didn't pay much attention to the draft this past Summer except a little bit in regards to the Flyers prospects. I took a glance at this article recently http://puckprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=1405 and I guess I just mixed up the names.

GKJ 12-10-2012 08:03 PM

Can one of our Canadians here answer this: if there was an NHL season, would Laughton be on the team? Or at least be in camp?
