You can add any player to your World Juniors team. Skater or goalie. Who do you pick? (Has to be of same nationality).

I'd get Chara for team Slovakia solely because of the entertainment factor.

If I really wanted to win, I'd get a goalie, probably Halak.

I second this. Finland's goaltending was somewhat below par this year.

Id say Dustin brown for the USA. Leadership, big hitting, timely scoring. The USA didn't need anything but I'd take him if allowed

I think the US junior team's weakest position was center. Not that they played bad, I mean this is the weakest position of a team that played dominant hockey, but I think they could use more skill, especially with Gally at wing.

Current: Paul Stastny

All-Time: Mike Modano

For Canada, I think it would have to be a goaltender. Price probably due to his past performance at the WJC.

Jeez, I can just imagine a 6'9 35 year old guy against a team of U20s.

He would get insta-suspended by IIHF for intimidation and taking up too much space.

This, or possibly Pietrangelo and just play him 30 minutes a game since our D was a real mess.

I don't think he counts as Canadian. His play is just too out of this world.

I'll see myself out now...
