I'm looking forward to the WJC, if there's no lockout it will be a very evenly matched tournament this year.
He has a good chance, although there are a few other players of his ilk that are also in the mix (Hartman, Matteau, etc.). The nice thing about Biggs is at least at the junior level he can slide up and down the line-up and be effective. You might see him ride shotgun with some of the smaller skilled players on the U.S. team, maybe even be a "bodyguard" type for Galchenyuk.
