World Championship?

Which of our players do you think will play at the worlds?
Eberle maybe Jones for Canada??
Paajarvi and Omark for Sweden?
What about Gilbert or Teemu do you think they get a chance?

I read on my hockey pool the other day that Hall hopes to play for Canada.

Didn't he say in a recent interview that he wasn't thinking about the World Championships because it wouldn't be fair to himself or his teammates not playing at full health or something?

Really? I can't remember who my source is but I heard that he wasn't messing around with his ankle and planned on not taking any chances.

Hall (ankle) plans on playing in the world championships, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Spin:
Hall is out for the rest of the season due to a high ankle sprain. The original prognosis was that the injury would take eight weeks to heal. Eight weeks takes Hall to April 26, which would be three days before the WHC is set to take place. The question is whether or not the Oilers want Hall to play or would rather him rest up for the start of the 2011 season.

As of right now, I'm sure Anderson, Ward, Steve Mason and Brodeur are far ahead of Dubie on Team Canada's list.

Anderson is American.
The thing is with Dubnyk he would probably want to go for sure unlike a lot of these guys who might be too worn out.

Doubt Brodeur is interested.

I personally think it would be a great experience and boost for Hall's morale to play in the World Championships. For him and Eberle both.

I agree. It'd be nice for Hall to meet some Canadian vets from around the league and most likely do some damage with Ebs. Hall needs to win something gold for Canada too since he missed out at the WJHC.

Of course he needs to be 100%, no use risking further injury.

Not unless they're trying to dive for some World Championship draft. Whatever that would be.

I'm thinking Hartikainen might have earned a shot at flanking a Granlund - Pulkkinen line...

David Staples had an article on how the Russians wanted Bulin as they didn't have many other options, but the problem is Bulin quit playing in the Worlds a few years back. That and now Nabokov is suddenly available.

As for Oilers, I'd add Gibert's name to the list for potential guys to make it.

Whitney and Gilbert for the USA

Marincin for Slovakia? Maybe

Paajarvi for Sweden

Would Whitney be healed in time? What's the timeline, is he still hoping to play the last couple games of the year for the Oilers?

“I wouldn’t be prepared and it wouldn’t be fair to myself or the team,” Hall told the Edmonton Journal. “There’s probably some other guy out there who’s played the whole season, who’s more equipped to play.”
Hall is just being a good pro and saying the right thing for the situation. If Team Canada comes calling I highly doubt he would decline if he's healed up by then.
