Official 2013-14 WJC Thread
 
See a lot of discussion in the Laughton thread, thought maybe we needed its own thread. Maybe a sticky for the next two weeks or so?

Best place to update with Laughton and Leier playing today? Or keep it in the Laughton thread?

DrinkFightFlyers 12-20-2013 11:50 AM

I just figured this would be the overall WJC thread, game updates, etc. The individual player updates probably would still make sense in prospect or individual threads. Or here. Either way.

Mcdavid is going to be sick, Dumba Scores

2-2

SolidSnakeUS 12-20-2013 11:58 AM

Didn't know we made another thread. Oh well :laugh:.

But yeah, McDavid is going to change a team.

He's not draft eligible until next season right? Yeesh.

SolidSnakeUS 12-20-2013 12:03 PM

2015 draft. If you tank, tank for that kid. Seriously, he's that good.

dingbathero 12-20-2013 12:05 PM

Laughton and Leier dangerous on PK. Laughton out front almost had a goal shorthanced, robbed.

SolidSnakeUS 12-20-2013 12:05 PM

****! So close for Laughton.

I wish I was an Oilers fan...

Not even Oilers fans wish they were Oilers fans these days....

Mcdavid is crafty

SolidSnakeUS 12-20-2013 12:10 PM

The problem is, I think the Oilers shouldn't draft McDavid for one reason, their defense still sucks donkey balls. Unless they get McDavid and then ship off a couple of former high 1st rounders?

Hollywood Couturier 12-20-2013 12:13 PM

Pittsburgh is getting him anyway.

Ekblad this year, McDavid next year.

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Perron-McDavid-Yak
Smyth-Gagner-Hemsky
Gordon-Jones-Arcobello

Nurse-Klefbom
Ekblad-Ference
Petry-Grebeshkov

That is a pretty ridiculous team. Not real familiary with the Oilers so maybe I got some positions or depth chart things wrong. But damn. I'd be worried about playing that team.

dingbathero 12-20-2013 12:22 PM

Ekblad with a MONSTER of a shot... 3-2 Canada

SolidSnakeUS 12-20-2013 12:23 PM

Ekblad is going to be a special kid.

BillDineen 12-20-2013 12:37 PM

Laughton/Leier look good. I would like to see them on the ice a bit more. McDavid and Reinhart are great together. Ekblad looks like the real deal as well.

What to expect from each of the five Flyers' prospects in the WJC:

There might be a few teams pulling a Pittsburgh for him based on what I've heard.

Wouldn't surprise me. If he really is a generational talent (don't know too much about him TBH), it would be worth sucking for a year to land a guy like that. Maybe a team in a struggling market will get #1 overall like when Pittsburgh got Crosby. Let the conspiracy theories live on!

They both played well in a shut down roll today. Horvat's line was on fire.

Next year's trade deadline should be a buyers market as just about every team out of the playoffs will be selling off tons of pieces just to make their team worst.

BillDineen 12-20-2013 01:43 PM

From the main board thread looks like ghost is not playing today.
