Holtby starting goalie
and the 2nd wouldn't be bad either
(this team has a lot of centres)
Schwartz (I like Kadri more in a jnr tournament but this team needs some natural wingers)
Subban? Roy? Bunz?
HM aka extras for both Canada teams: M Foligno, Bailey, Shaw, Kadri, Colborne, DSP, Z Kassian, Adam, Strome, Scheifele, LeBlanc, Dalpe, Toffoli, Eakin, Rattie, Cizikas, Adam, M Stone, Ashton, Caron, Conacher, G Bourque
B Smith, Elliott, Gormley, J Morrow, Despres, R Ellis, Schultz, R Murphy, Barbeiro, Barrie, McNabb, R Murray
23 and under is a different beast. That's why it's much harder for 18-19 year olds to score in the NCAA, because they are going up against 20-23 year old players. Whereas in Junior they are the oldest players on the ice usually. The players are just bigger and more experienced at that age.
