No chance, the top line may do OK against weak 3rd lines but the rest of the team would get smashed. See what Brassard, Johansen, Savard, ect did against JR competition 2 or 3 years ago, most regulars in the NHL are like that.

There is just such a strength disparity between a fully developed adult and a teenager that there is pretty much no way the U20 team could compete against NHLers. You could probably field a team of fourth line talent in the NHL that would walk over the U20 guys. It's the same reason that phenoms like Crosby don't tear apart the U20 when they play at age 16, even though they are clearly more talented.

A handful (at most) do every year, and you don't have an entire team of them.

No chance in hell. Not even if you make some sort of "world junior team" they would stand a chance.

No. Most players from that team will never reach the NHL nevermind be regulars.

Yeah but still they are some of the best players in the world, even though it might be easy to forget that.

2010 Spitfires could possibly beat Columbus.

Fowler, Ellis, Hall, Henrique, etc.

The Swedish WJC-team from last year would be beaten BADLY by any SEL team but that team beat Canada right before the WJC. The same Swedish WJC-team could not beat a Swedish 3rd tier-league team in regulation before the WJC.

Canadian WJC team would even have a hard time beating worst KHL teams because Russian junior players motly aren't regulars in the KHL.

I'd expect a score of 21-1 for the NHL and at lesat 9 broken bones on the junior side.

Simply no, and they would get killed by DEL team, Allsvenskan team, AHL team, and would most certainly be beaten by an ECHL team. Have ppl forgotten these WJC teams frequently get beaten by CIS teams?!

I see what you did there.

But can anyone honestly think this is possible? Last year bottom feeding teams had players such as Nash, Hall and Price.

What like maybe 3 of them? And that's a year after anyways.

They'd get smoked. The NHL teams would have the puck the entire time and just simply overpower the kids. Those 19 year old goalies at the WJC are always such crap too. Considering Canada is going to let in a few softies to the likes of future SEL players on Team Sweden I'm sure the NHL snipers trained in picking corners would have no problem.
