I take it Rielly-Hamilton Harrington-Ouellet are more or less locks, so the fight is for the 5th and 6th D place (and 1 extra defenseman)
I read that Sproul, Murphy and Pouliot are all rotating on the same pairing with Pelech. Murphy and Sproul are the ones really battling for the PP QB spot.

As a Canada fan I like the Ouellet Harrington pairing because they did play great together in the summer, but I wonder if it would be better to put one with Hamilton and one with Rielly. Rielly and Hamilton are both the style where they like to roam and take chances. Might be better to balance them out with guys like Harrington and Ouellet.

I was actually writing a post about Sproul in the team Canada thread and when you really think about it he has come a ridiculously long way.

Didnt start playing in the OHL until part way through his draft year. He climbed from a non OHLer to a decently high second rounder in about three quarters of a season. The year after that he led the OHL in goals for D men and now this season he is tearing the OHL apart and making a good bid to be on team Canada in a lock out year.

The distance he has came in 2 years is ridiculous lol
