Denmark and Norway have been promoted from Div 1 for next year. Ukraine and France are relegated to Div 2.
Canada and Russia have finished 1st in their respective groups.
The preliminary round match-ups are USA vs Belarus and Finland vs Germany
Shockingly, the Swedes are stuck in the relegation round with the Czechs, the Slovaks, and the Swiss
Steven Lu could be going to Lewiston for a 2007 2nd round pick and a 2007 4th round pick
Baie-Comeau is offering a 2nd, 7th, and 11th round picks in 2007
Clement Pristov has signed an extension for the same amount that will keep him with Jesenice until April 2008
No upsets in the preliminary round. Finland beats Germany 4-1 and the USA destroys Belarus 9-2
Slovakia will need to beat the Czechs to get Sweden relegated and to save themselves. Very unlikely because the Czechs are undefeated. Looks like the Slovaks and the Swiss will be relegated.
Slovakia beats the Czechs 2-1, Sweden is relegated along with Switzerland!
Lots of trade rumors.
Lu will not be going to Lewiston. Baie-Comeau still a possibility?
Niagara, Owen Sound, and Sault Ste. Marie have all expressed interest in Simon Vidal
Jeff Sweeney has interest from Montreal, Rouyn-Noranda, PEI, and Baie-Comeau
Shawinigan has offered Tommy Beland and 2 picks for Steven Lu
Acadie-Bathurst has simply inquired about Steven Lu
In the semi-finals of the U-20's, USA will play Canada, Russia will play Finland
Canada beats the USA 4-3
Russia beats Finland 5-3
Canada-Russia for the Gold medal
In typical Eklund fashion, every trade I mentioned previously has been rejected. No one is going anywhere
USA destroys Finland 13-0 to win the bronze medal
Patrice Cormier scores the winning goal as Canada beats Russia 3-2 to win it's 5th straight Gold Medal.
