How would Canada U20 do against a bottom NHL team?

I realize that under NHL rules the junior team wouldn't make it out of the 1st period but with international rules potentially getting these guys out of their comfort zones I think the junior team's speed and skill would be enough to at least make it close and possibly even pull out a victory
International rules do not mean you cannot deliver hard, heavy, bone rattling hits. Charging and hitting the head area are called more frequently. Also, I wouldn't put it past that team to use thug tactics to scare the living bleep out of those kids, and just kill off a few penalties. They would be scared to go in the corners before the first period was over. International refereeing didn't help Kharlamov from a thug like Clarke.

Don't even think the best junior team could beat the best college team.

I would say that the Canadiens would finish with a record of:

82-31-35-16 for 78 points, with 212 goals for and 226 goals against.

They would end up at around 15th in the Eastern Conference.

The best AHL team would win some games in the NHL, they are pro hockey players. They would finish last, but they wouldn't go anything close to 0-82. I'd bet they'd get close to 20 wins. When the Oilers had the 500+ man games lost to injury season, and were calling up junior players to play defence, they won a few games. Mind you they also lost like 20 in a row, but that team was probably worse than the best AHL team after all their injuries.

Junior team would get crushed by any AHL team let alone NHL team. OKC has a bunch of guys who played in the WJC fairly recently, and they're not looking that great.

Well, the expansion Senators went 10704, and that was pretty much an AHL team.

Not the final roster, but Canada currently down 3-1 against University of Alberta.

4-1 Alberta final.

I don't care who's on the final team, they would get absolutely smashed by an NHL team. It's literally men vs. boys.

Forget Canada, Russia and Sweden would get bulldozed too.

Team Canada in World Junior prep is roughly .500 against CIS teams.

CIS teams aren't AHL teams.

The AHL is arguably the 3rd best hockey league in the world.

.500 isn't waltzing over anybody, let alone teams several levels below the AHL.

Yeah, this is a ridiculous question. Bear in mind, that they lose to Canadian University teams (like today) every so often. You could see the speed and power difference against the University of Alberta. Just imagine what they'd look like against an NHL team.

Men vs Boys.

LOL that some people think the junior team would stand a chance against any NHL team. The poorest NHL team would win by 10 goals. The juniors would be absolutely crushed. I think the juniors would lose to a good CIS team, if the result mattered. The Bears beat them today missing a couple of key players.

The list of players that didn't play against the UofA was like a who's who of Team Canada: Nugent-Hopkins, Scheifele and Huberdeau, Dougie Hamilton, Morgan Rielly, Scott Harrington, Strome, Philip Danault, Boone Jenner, Charles Hudon, Brett Ritchie, Xavier Ouellet. Basically everyone that was guaranteed a spot on the team (Ouellet was out due to injury).

You can't draw any conclusions out the result when it comes to CIS teams.

Steve Mason didn't have junior defencemen in front of him.
