Then again this is Hockey Canada making the picks and we've seen how they can be blinded by favouritism in the past. I've just had the pleasure of watching Binnington the last four seasons and having seen his competition the only guy who is on his level in Canada this year is the guy he took over for halfway through the game.
I think in the round robin play is where Binnington can really take a hold of the number 1 spot. If Subban falters once, I can see Binnington come in, take over, and get hot through the tourney. It's been awhile since we've had a goalie it seems that can just get hot and carry the team as much as he can.

I wouldn't count out Fucale though. Yes he's young, however right now he's apart of a Halifax Moosehead team that is on fire. I'm sure whoever they have watching MacKinnon and Drouin closely will be keeping an equal eye on Fucale as well.

He'll probably get an invite, but won't make the team.

The competition is too tough/better:

Harrington
Reinhart
Murray
Hamilton
Murphy
Dumba
Ouellet
Rielly

etc.

Thread says it all. Im not a 100% sure, but I think the eligible returnees are Oleksiak, Harrington, Murray, and D.Hamilton on D; Huberdeau, Scheifele, Strome, and Jenner up front.

I would imagine Mackinnon and Dumba are basically guaranteed considering how close they were last year.

Im thinking D will be the strength of this team.

Whos going to be in net?
I think stabbing them would really hurt their productivity.

What's wrong with that. He has had great sucess with Canada in the past and he's a leader.

How are so many people not putting Rielly on the team. Underrated because he's a Leaf.

I refuse to correct my post. I'll let my stupidity and failure to read the date of the original post stand as a lesson to those who follow me.

I'm a lot more interested in the WJC this year with no NHL (thus far). The rosters of the last few pages look super impressive. Last year I had a not-so-great feeling when looking at the team on paper, but this year looks much more rounded and reliable. Especially if RNH is on the team. Very excited to see this team come boxing day.

Here's my take on what the roster will look like:

Huberdeau (A) - RNH (A) - Mackinnon
Monahan - Scheifele - Griffith
Rattie - Strome - Ritchie
Hudon - Jenner - Danault

Murray (C) - Hamilton
Harrington - Rielly
Ouellet - Murphy
Reinhart

Subban
Broissoit

Notes:

1. The duo's of Huberdeau/Mackinnon and Strome/Ritchie stay together.
2. Hudon should be a lock for a bottom 6 spot.
3. Putting Monahan in the lineup was more thinking with my heart than my head. I'm not convinced Team Canada brings 2 draft eligible forwards.
4. The 7th d-man spot is pretty wide open but I picked Reinhart as he brings a more stay-at-home physical presence than the other more mobile/offensive d-men already in the lineup.

I like it a lot but the only "maybes" IMO, are Ritchie and Griffith. Everything else is spot on.

Agree with your predictions. The only difference I can think of between me and you is I'm guessing RNH will get the C. His skill, coupled with the fact that he played an entire season (minus injury) in the NHL last year and wasn't far out of the Calder Trophy running......the rest of this team will look upto a guy like that

I really feel like Ritchie's played his way onto the team thus far this season and especially with this performance in the 1st Super Series game. The fact that he and Strome are probably the most dangerous duo in the CHL right now only strengthens his chances.

Griffith was a bubble guy for me up until Lessio got hurt, which I think essentially punched Griffith's ticket.

I really like this team. Monahan has been so good in all the games against Russsia I think he makes it. Brossoit is not the same goalie he was last year, I would not have him on the team at this point. Reinhart also could go either way I have liked Lowe better this year.

Call me crazy but Percy over Reinhart imo, havn't liked the look of Reinhart on big ice. Perhaps add Catanacci to the mix, great two way game and blazing speed.

I hate being the guy who just throws out propositions for his team's prospects, but what about Wotherspoon? I realize the competition for D spots is intense, but I'm under the impression that he's one of the better defenders in the WHL at the moment (and not simply because he's paired with Seth Jones).

Ouellet seemed fine playing the right side with Harrington. It looks like he can play either side basically.

Harrington played at least all of last season on Tinordi's right side as well. However, I don't see them being paired together in the end. It would leave us with a pairing of Rielly-Murphy...

For me:

Huberdeau(A)-Hopkins(A)-MacKinnon
Scheifele-Strome-Ritchie
Rattie-Monahan-Leivo
Hudon-Jenner-Danault
Leipsic-Griffith

Murray(C)-Murphy
Harrington-Rielly
Hamilton(A)-Ouellet
Reinhart

Subban
Marcoux

I can. It's hockey canada, and he's 17... Still not sure how he'd fare physically against 19yos internationally.

Dan Catenacci has been a beast leading The Owen Sound Attack thus far. I think he will get some serious consideration for a bottom 6 position on this team.

Then you haven't been following the WJC in recent years. Why is Drouin such a good bet when RNH and Seguin didn't even make the club?

I find it hilarious how the draft eligble fan boys come out of the wood works every year during the WJC. I will save and post this message for years to come....

WJC is an 18 and 19 year old tournament. Only uber elite 17 year olds make it. If you follow world juniors or junior hockey in general you would understand this. Even the hopkins, seguins, duchenes, and skinners of the world get left off. No, hockey Canada will not put Drouin, McDavid, Domi etc over Rattie, Strome, Monahan, Ritchie. I realize that this is a hockey forum where opinion matters but I feel like I am taking crazy pills.

In most cases a 2nd round 19 year old scoring winger is a better player currently than a potential top 15 first round pick. It does not mean they have more potential but in the case of the WJC who is better currently matters a great deal.
