I think that Beauvillier and Sprong can play on the fourth, they have the skills required.

I agree that they are both very skilled players however the agressive forecheck and punishing body checks that come from a 4th line is not their strength. The finishing of checks will create time and space for the other lines to do their thing.

Roster announced.

Surprised at the lack of Jérémy Roy, but the 96 D's are very good.

Still, although I love both Carrier and Bahl and I believe they will both be drafted by a NHL team next year, Roy was a better player than both of them last year on CAG as a 14 year old. Pomerleau (5'9", 2 points in 17 games for Victo) over Roy is a joke. And Maheux should have def made the team too. He would be our only defenseman over 200 pounds for instance.

Ontario and Pacific.
I expect that Atlantic and West will be announced soon.
I saw some congratulations on Twitter for players named to Team West, but haven't seen a roster yet.

Although talented...I feel Pomerleau and Savage are marketing picks to get tickets sold in Victo/Drummondville. They will not see much ice.

I'm a big fan of Ekblad. He's going to be a gem.

I don't know how you can say that.
Pacific doesn't look incredibly strong, but it still has names that pop out right away.

As for Ontario, it has six players from what was probably the best midget team in North America last season (Toronto Marlboros) and it's loaded with talent.
IMO Cornel, Dal Colle, Ekblad, Ho-Sang, and McKeown are all top ten 2014 prospects right now and then there's McDavid, of course.
The team would be better off if Herbst wasn't injured, though.
They didn't even include a couple junior A kids, like Jake Evans, who I really like.
