World Junior Championships Discussion 2009-10

Feel free to discuss the tournament amongst your Flyer brethren. We don't have a single prospect in the tournament, and lack a 1st round draft pick, so I don't expect this to be particularly active thread except amongst our Canadian friends up north. However, with the advent of Center Ice and NHL Network, some of us in the States have taken a greater interest in the tournament itself.

Simon Bertilsson is hurt. Knee injury. He had a very good shot of cracking Sweden's spectacular blueline.

Jacob Markström, 2nd Round (#38) 2008 by FLA, and Anders Nilsson, 3rd Round (#62) 2009 by NYI, are Sweden's goalies. It's hard for Eriksson to sneak in there.

Markström: Brynäs (SEL) - 2.10 GAA - 0.924 sv%
Nilsson: Luleå (SEL) - 2.59 GAA - 0.900 sv%
Eriksson: Leksand (AllSven) - 2.28 GAA - 0.930 sv%

I'm looking forward to the tourney even if no Flyers prospects are playing in it. There are 2 guys playing that play here in Portland. Nino Neidereitter for Switzerland and Luke Walker for the US. Luke is a total stud. Just a week or so before evaluation camp he took a puck to the face. He had surgery where they placed a steel plate in his face. He was in a good deal of pain, but he still went to the camp, and managed to make the team. All this from a kid who was undrafted in the WHL.

I am pumped because this is the first WJC I will actually follow.

As you know I am biased towards Russia who do have some great scoring talent and many players who will be first round picks this year, but even I know that they have almost no shot at overtaking Canada.

Last year there was, what, 1? And like 6 or 7 in the entire draft? And the year before that there were 2 in the first round but they both cried at the prospect of the AHL and scampered back to Russia.

So, I don't think there will be "many" in the first round.

Canada looks good as always. Leading 3-0 before the Latvians even got a shot on goal

It was a decent hit but with the IIHF rules it had to be called. Also, really nice save by Latvia's goalie.

It's more black and white in international play. Intent does not exist.

I thought that Latvians didn't have souls and, therefore, hitting them was never a penalty. I mean, it's just like breaking machines, really. Right?

5-0 Canada after one. They're outshooting Latvia 20-4.

Maybe one of the other former Russian satellites. Latvia is one of the few countries not called Canada where hockey is the #1 sport.

Love this tourney but I wish they had a mercy rule. Canada is totally outclassing Latvia, who's already had a goalie change in the first period.

Canada is beating them like a red-headed step child.

Of all the mock drafts that I have seen and all the rankings from TSN to ISS and everywhere in between, it looks like there is about 6 Russian players that are going to go in the first round alone.

Folks doing mock drafts and ranking players don't need to worry about those players holding them hostage with potential KHL contracts. The reason Russians have and will continue to plummet at the draft has nothing to do with their hockey talents.

If you're a top of the draft guy, you're probably going to only drop a few spots. If you're in the latter half of the draft (where it's more competitive in differentiating between the players) there's a lot of reasons for a team to pass on a Russian player to draft a player with greater assurance of being able to sign them.

The WJC can also do wonders for your draft stock in the opinions of neutral scouts.

I don't find the ISS as some sacred doctrine like some people on HF Boards do. I look at them more as a 31st NHL team who lets everyone know what they're thinking.
