IMO RNH, Huberdeau and Scheifele should each anchor their own lines.

Strome - RNH - Ritchie (Hottest duo in the CHL + RNH)
Drouin - MacKinnon - Huberdeau (Dynamic, offensive line, great at the SSS)
Hudon - Scheifele - Rattie (Balanced, two-way line)
Danault - Jenner - McNeill (Shutdown)
Monahan/Graovac

Corrado standing out reminds me a bit of how DD stood out back in the day for team canada, and just forced people to keep him.

This is obviously a lower version of that, but the concept is the same.

He has been the stand out out of nowhere player of the camp so far.

Graovac had a really good PK out there and looked solid. I still think Corrado and Sproul should get spots on the team. Murphy played with a steady, solid guy who most consider a lock and he still looked exposed defensively. I doubt they send Rielly, Reinhart and Pouliot either when they have older guys playing ust as well as Pouliot
You really think they're gonna cut Rielly?

ya i really like this, never thought of it this way, big guns on every line, RNH Strome. Huberdeau.(mack drouin arent slouches either) Scheif and rattie, (hudon will only compliment) and then jenner.
I was surprised with Graovac looked very well. Sadly didnt notice monahan even though i was trying..

They were pretty clearly trying to keep the LD - RD balance and with Reinhart close to a lock, I'm not sure where he would fit in.

Is it safe to say Dumba has officially played himself off the roster? I know more than half of posters projected lists had him as that 3rd D pairing. Is it safe to say his mediocre season isn't just because of his team, but also because of him? Many thought he was a bit of a shoo in due to his HC pedigree, but I really don't like his decision making or mobility.

Ryan Murphy is very frustrating as well. I honestly don't believe his pros outweigh his cons. I'd rather have Pouliot or Sproul in that 7th D position.

At this point Reinhart and Corrado should be an excellent third pairing and I would trust them out there against any opponent.

Corrado wasn't just hype by Canucks fans. Make him on third pairing with Reinhart.

Murphy or Sproul as 7th dman.

Even if he got another chance and he played better, can you really take a guy that was getting constantly burned to the outside all game and was on the ice for 3GA out of 4? I don't think this is the time to be gambling on somebody getting back into form.

4-7 cuts?

OK... Beauvillier, Wotherspoon, Dumba, Camara/Catenacci/Pelech/Sproul

IMO

Man, Drouin has looked pretty good... I hope they keep him for tomorrows game... I'm cautious because of his age lol.

Not very well. But what does that have to do with anything?

I can still see Murphy in the 7th D spot. But if one of the D gets injured, I wouldn't be very comfortable seeing him out there on a regular basis. I personally would prefer to keep a utility D man in the 7th spot. It all depends on the kind of hockey Canada wants to play.

Especially because its not like he had a clear advantage over anyone before the game.

Was outplayed even by Murphy this afternoon.

IMO you've got Reinhart, Corrado, Murphy, Pouliot and Sproul left for three spots. And I might put them in that order as well

He played well enough to warrant staying imo... You could make a case for either... Gotta start trimming somewhere though.

I'm not worried about age in particular. If you have Mackinnon and Drouin as some combination of 4th line/13th forward... you should be okay.

Evander Kane was cut, then named the 13th forward after an injury.... and he was an impact player.

There's a reason you can't base your opinions off these games only. A few of the players who sat today (Thus locks) didn't have good games yesterday.

It'll be very difficult to cut MacKinnon, Drouin and Shinkaruk. It will be easy to cut Dumba. I'd get rid of Wilson too. He's the kind of player you'd love to have in the Stanley Cup playoffs but not so much in a IIHF sanctioned tournament.

There's a reason these players didn't sit today. If you're not a lock then you better show well when you're asked to and if you don't then you get cut, it's that simple.
