I'd rather just see numbers vs team Russia.

I know Stepan got all 8 of his points in those 4 games.

He had 1 point.

First time playing against people as good as him. Though by the last game he had really picked it up, had about 6 shots and was flying around the Russian defense.

They will definitely be watching him at BC this year.

How about now? It looks as though Bourque has solidified a spot on one of the scoring lines and Stepan has a good chance to take one of the bottom two center spots between D'Amigo and Kristo.

Still foolish?

Firstly, I'd like to agree and say that Kreider had a good game last night, he was good going forward, not afraid to crash the net or go in close, he got sticked in the nose while he was sprawled in the crease.He was also more physical than I expected, though he did wind himself going for a big check, for which he suffered twice as he was hit hard by the same opponent ten minutes later.

Sure it would have been nice to see him score, but all in all he exceeded my expectations.

However, the game was so very poorly refereed last night and was rather embarrassing towards the end, I'm sure that neither coaching staff learned anything about their players, I'm not sure why you bother inviting a team 8,000 miles to have it officiated like that.

Schroeder really had 14 points in 6 games?

I don't know who was on his line but is it from the benefit of having bigger and/or physical players on his line to create space for him?

I've never seen Schroeder without big players on his line (excuse me for being ignorant).

They included all of the scrimmage games as well, so I think that skews things a bit if you're just looking for stats against the Russian teams. But obviously he still had an excellent camp

If I tabulated correctly, Schroeder had 2 goals and 6 assists in 3 scrimmage games and 3 goals and 3 assists in 3 games against the Russians.

Bourque was on his line throughout camp, he is a smallish forward but they had good speed together. Not sure who the other player on the line was.

Who is the coach for the US WJ team this year?

Palmieri sounds good to me, glad they brought him back.

Here's a quick guess at the lineup based on the camp:

Morin - Schroeder - Bourque
Kreider - McRae - Palmieri
D'Amigo - Stepan - Kristo
Jenks - Budish - Ryan
Czarnik

Fowler - Warsofsky
Ness - Carlson
Leddy - Moore
Comrie

Lee
Campbell

I have a feeling Blais really likes Saponari and I could see him making the team.

Warsofsky is really underrated and I see him being the best defenseman after Fowler and Carlson, who I think are the only locks on D. Wideman, Donovan, and Gardiner all have a shot to make the team, but I like the group above right now. Leddy did well at the camp, but that doesn't always translate to success at the tournament so we'll see how he does with Minnesota.

I think Lee-Campbell should be set as the goaltending duo. Not just due to the camp, they're head and shoulders above Knapp and Maxwell in every way. I've never been a fan of Maxwell.

What are your thoughts on Jerry D'Amigo and Kenny Ryan?

What are their chances of making this USA team?

Definitely will be interesting to see him at BC this year. I wanted the Isles to take him with their 2nd 1st rounder. I am a little scared though of these HS guys. When you're that big in HS it's almost impossible not to dominate if you have any modicum of skills. However his skating puts his way ahead of his years. He will be just fine.

I had a few posts about them earlier in this thread, if you want to search back I go into detail. Yes, I think both will make the team and provide key role playing capability that they've seemed to lack over the years.

These were the lines on Saturday night:

D'Amigo - Stepan - Saponari
Palmieri - Schroeder - Bourque
Ryan - McRae - Budish
Kreider - Johnson - Morin

Fowler - Carlson
Warsofsky - Gardiner
Donovan - Wideman
Moore

Lee / Campbell

They forwards got mixed and matched after Morin got ejected for fighting in the second, though.

Right. The forward lines and defensive pairings were mixed all camp long. Guys like Morin, Bourque, Palmieri, Kristo, and a few other kids can play both wings.

Ultimately I grouped together kids that have good chemistry and have experience playing with each other in previous tournaments as well as putting together lines for certain roles. D'Amigo-Stepan-Kristo, for example, have all played with each other previously and were especially good together this camp. They're all also some of the best defensive players on the team and I have a feeling that will be their role, as the top checking unit. Morin-Schroeder-Bourque all have experience playing alongside each other as well.

Are you able to say how Wideman is looking so far? Do you think he has a shot at making the team in 6th spot?

Is USA Hockey finally changing some of their stubborn ways?!?!?

According to this article, there will be one more final tryout camp for the WJC team in December in Grand Forks, ND.

Quote:
There will be one final tryout camp, starting Dec. 15 in Grand Forks, N.D., and then the roster will be set.
Other tidbits from the article:

- It would take a miracle for our goalies not to be Lee and Campbell. When speaking of the great goaltending he got, Blais only mentions those two.

- Blais also singles out Danny Kristo's performance and praises his conditioning over the summer.

- Blais mentions again that those players cut in the beginning are not eliminated from contention. He points out that for some conditioning and skating over the summer were reasons.

- Blais' goal of the camp was to come out with 15 roster locks. He said he's confident they got that. You'd have to think some of those locks are Lee, Campbell, Schroeder, Kristo, Carlson, Fowler, Morin, Palmieri, McRae, Stepan, Bourque, D'Amigo..that's 12. I wonder who the other 3 would be?

I would say Warsofsky for sure has to be one of those locks, but I agree with the names you listed as well.
