We will see how terrible he is on Olympic sized ice. The opposing teams will be chasing him all night.

What are your thoughts on captain and alternates? Nugent-Hopkins, Huberdeau, Hamilton?

I agree
you really can't go wrong though seeing as most of these guys are leaders back on their clubs

Beucase they aren't Western Goaltenders.

We know the routine.

It's pretty great to see Wotherspoon make the team when alot of people were writing him off and arguing about Corrado/Dumba.

Somebody on this board brought it my attention 2 weeks ago that he was underrated going into the camp. Congrats.
Dumba seemed to be the one that fell the most in expectations in my mind.All the reports of him not having a good season were correct and some exposed flaws that needed correcting. Dumba must have been a tough call because be was held in high regard by HC. He will be the leader next year for sure.

So guys, just a quick question. Will TSN be streaming these games at all? Or will there be somewhere online to catch them?

I gave up cable earlier this year with plans of just getting center ice online, which hasn't come to be obviously, but this looks like it could end my chances of seeing any of these games.

Anyone know a good place I can catch them? Even if I have to pay?

Ryan Murphy making the team is a joke. He has shown terribly and has been a disaster.

Apparently he wasn't even the bubble guy so don't expect him to be #7.

People got to stop saying this team is weak and how we only have like 3 players that are physical. The whole team is physical. Scheifle and Huberdeau both have bid bodys and use them well. Just because your not throwing huge hits it doesn't mean your not be physical you can be physical other then just throwing big hits and people dont realize that.Seperating players from the puck and being hard on the puck iis being physical you don't have to throw big hits to be considered physical.

If Marc-Andre Bergeron had great hockey sense, great skating (Going fast in one direction isn't great skating, Bergeron has no agility), great vision, strong insticts.

I don't know about you but I don't think I'm describing Marc-Andre Bergeron with those traits.

People need to learn when they make an outlandish claim, either back it up or admit your "claim" isn't based on anything factual.

Marc andre bergeron was not actually that bad of a d-man. He could move the puck well. he just didn't have a long career.

Now will people stop knocking Drouin for being "bad defensively" just because he is a smaller forward and Bob McKenzie needed something to ramble on about. If Drouin was 6'2 200lb would people call him bad defensively. He has great anticipation and can strip players with ease (great at causing turnovers) just because bob McKenzie makes it the cool trendy thing to say doesn't make it correct. I've watched Drouin play 30+ times live. Yes he is smallish but no he is not a liability defensively.

He's easily the best player in this tournament since Malkin 06 or even Crosby 05.

Because he was dumb as a stump. Only players that suceed with poor hockey sense are certain physical players who take few risks.

Tavares in 2009. I doubt even RNH can top that.

In either case the PP should run through RNH and he should be out there for the full 2 minutes sometimes. The guy is an elite powerplay producer in the NHL. He should be able to pick apart teenagers killing penalties like it's nobody's business.

Wow and I bet you love this team???
Did mackinnon dominate at this years Ivan hlinka tournament except for that last game???[/QUOTE]

Yes he did. Excluding his 3 point game in the final, he had 8 points in 4 games. What more do you expect?

Mackinnon I'm sure will be in the NHL next year. Not many building blocks to work with for next year based on who will be in the NHL (Rielly, Mackinnon, maybe Reinhart even).

Might have to wait an additional year. Very rare for 16 year olds to make this team let alone be impact players. Even Crosby wasn't a standout at 16.

Gallagher and Howden are grinders on a Team Canada national team believe it or not - and very good ones. That's also not surprisingly how they project at the NHL level. Those two guys played arguably the toughest minutes of any other forward on the team last year, that's how I define grinder and it's not a shot at them by any means. I'm wondering who will be the Gallagher/Howden of this year...
