Interesting thread.

I cant see how Reinhart, Dumba and Rielly dont all make the team. If they dont, those selecting the team will have dropped the ball yet again.

The weakness will be up front, but there are many draft eligible players who could make the team as there was a dearth of top end Canadian forwards from the past draft year, and the guys from the year before that, many of them look to make their nhl teams.

A back end of

Reinhart Murphy
Rielly Dumba
Harrington Ceci

looks pretty damn exciting to me.

Hopefully they go with that lineup as we have been lacking pop from the back end for several years now.

I have a feeling Murphy won't be available. I agree on your other 5, and would like to see a couple two-way guys like Koekkoek and Siemens grab the other two spots. I keep hearing this stuff about Siemens being black-balled for some reason but if he is as dominant as he could be to start the year he will force his way into the picture.

They could slot in a Koekkoek or Siemens into that spot and not really lose that much. Dumba and Rielly are going to bring the offense, so maybe Murphy would be overkill, but damn, I do like the sound of having all three. The goals are going to have to come from somewhere, may as well be from the backend for once.

They always go conservative with the d and it hasnt been working too well lately. I think it was a couple of years ago they were using forwards on the point on the pp when guys like Murphy were sitting home watching.

Stupid ****ers.

Duncan Siemens easily makes this team. Better than all Dmen drafted in 2012 not named Murray, and Murray will likely be in the NHL next year.

That's the most ridiculous thing I've read in this thread.

Halifax without Fucale and MacKinnon during Christmas time might not be good though.

And Frk should be a lock for the czech's too.

I dont think so.

That might fly on the Avs board but it doesnt pass the sniff test here.

Not exactly. He didn't meet the eligibility requirements to suit up for the U.S. in IIHF competition.

Selfishly speaking, but I think the Habs would be doing him a disservice putting him into the fire so soon. He could really use another year of junior.

This wouldn't be a homer post now would it?

Duncan Siemens diddn't even get invited to the selection camp last December, but yeah he is certainly a lock.

EDIT: Dont think he was injured but was that why he diddnt get an invite?

Two darkhorses for Canada are Adam Lowry and Lukas Sutter.

Lowry started the season strong before he had a wrist injury (which eventually required surgery). Sutter plays like a prototypical Sutter, which is always good.

He is. But I believe he has dual citizenship because he has played U16 and U17 for Sweden

I have a lot of reservations of most 18 year olds playing in the NHL.
Then factor in with Gally basically missing most of last season the Habs should have him play at least one more season with Sarnia.

Agreed. Let's hope the Habs see it that way!

He's over-exaggerating, but Siemens is definitely good enough to make the team. I can't believe he didn't even get invited to camp.

I dont understand how some people can have Rychel, Lazar, Duclair and Drouin in their lineups. Hockey Canada usually only goes with the elite 17 year olds like Tavares, Stamkos etc. Even RNH and Seguin were left off as 17yo's. I thought I was pushing it by including Mackinnon, and two draft eligble 18yo's in Monahan and Shinkaruk.

Exactly. If I were making the team, I would not shy away from taking 17 year olds if I find them to be better options, but Hockey Canada operates with an agenda, as shown when they did not bother to invite Calvin Pickard last year. I forsee Duncan Siemens suffering a similar fate if he does not average about a point-per-game this year.

Also, they BETTER include MacKinnon on the team this time. He's Canada's most dynamic player, period.
