Time to get this started. Going to be tough to watch as much as I'd like this year with the time difference from Russia, ah well.
I haven't seen this mentioned yet but Molin is going to have a fantastic opportunity lining up with Sebastian Collberg and Elias Lindholm (draft eligible) who is also one of Molin's teammates in the Brynas system.
Ritchie looks like he'll be on Canada's 2nd line, at least to start. Seemed silly not to keep him with Strome and I guess Coach Spott agrees.
I don't know if I would characterize the entire first as being bad. They dominated the first half of the period and limited the Finns to nothing. Then they started taking some bad penalties and remembered how soft the referees call it in Europe.
If they clean that up they should easily win.
*Side note, Lindell is wearing #18. He is listed as #6 on the main GDT thread in the WJC board but that is incorrect.
Ya took Miller and Ferraro a while to realize he was missing but they finally did near the end of the period. I was getting a bit concerned. They said they will look into getting an update, hope its nothing serious.
Leaving practice early concerns me. The thing is that Canada has replaced Hudon because his injury is serious and he will not be able to continue for the tournament. No replacement has been named for Ritchie so I guess they are hoping he will be ready to go Dec. 26th
