Brodziak and JDD cut from WJC team

Kinda sucks that they didn't make it. From what I was hearing Brodziak had a good shot.

Even more surprising than Perry being cut is Brodziak being cut. And it actually really bugs me that guys like Colliton and Dixon made it. Not only are they not doing as well this season, they weren't nearly as good as the camp.

Interesting that they cut the scoring leader from both the WHL & the OHL. Very disappointed about JDD getting cut. This could have been awesome experience for him, Oh Well!

Anyways, I may be reading into this too much but does the decision to cut Perry from the roster help support Kevin Lowe's decision not to accept the Anaheim deal. I mean if the kid can't even make the Junior squad how good is he really or is the World Juniors just another political thing.

He has to be pretty good to lead the OHL in scoring.
I think the decisions for final cuts at forward were extermely poor. Dixon should never have made the team over either Brodziak or Perry. I have an inkling there was a QMJHL influence there. But who knows.

This team always seems to lack that extra offensive kick every year but when the next years camp comes around they get rid of guys like Perry and Fehr who are pure offensive machines. I digress.. Go Canada anyways.

Here are the goaltending totals:

Deslauriers 2g 21s, 3g 21s, 1g 31s, 0g 7s
Harding 3g 18s, 2g 21s, 0g 8s, 2g 9s
Ward 3g 11s, 1g 21s, 1g 18s, 7g 22s

totals

Deslauriers - 6 ga, 80sa - 3.00gaa .925 sv%
Harding - 7 ga, 56sa - 3.50gaa .875 sv%
Ward - 12 ga, 72sa - 6.00 .833sv%

They made a bad choice, on both Brodziak and Deslauriers.

Ridiculous

This is a travesty. Brodziak is tearing up the WHL, and had an excellent camp. What more can a guy do? Canada has the greatest hockey talent in the world, yet we haven't won the gold in years. Anyone want to hazard a guess why that is? This year, I think we we'll win because of Fleury, but we certainly won't win because of the ridiculously stupid coaching staff.

Travesty? Ridiculously stupid? At least you aren't overreacting.

I honestly don't care who got cut as long as we bring home the gold...

If we don't, then I'll criticize
