WJC Team Canada Intrasquad Game Results

Both Price (good) and Latendresse (bad) pitch shutouts during the first WJC Team Canada intrasquad Red vs. White game yesterday.

Predictions,

Price will be the starter on this team, backed up by Bernier.
Gui will have a tough time making this team due to his play last year, Hartsburg may not have been the H.C. but he was an assistant on that staff.

Something tells me that staff does not like him and he will have to be extra impressive in camp now and in December to make the cut.

People put way too much stock in these intra-squad games.

Apparently Latendresse was dominant last year, and that didn't help him when the real tournament came around.

What Latendresse does during the coming year will have a far greater impact on his placement on the team, than anything he does here in July/August.

He's just saying they both had "shutouts" yesterday, but it's a good thing for Price and a bad thing for Latendresse.

Hartsburg will be the coach, not Habscheid.

I'm getting tired of reading about Lats being in peril to make the team. I highly doubt that it's the case.

Want to see the list of returning players that have been cut from Canada's WJC team?




Long one eh?

Latendresse is playing with Downie and Brassard, meaning he's getting a chance to play on one of the top two lines, just as he did last year. Brassard was a final cut last year, and is pretty much guaranteed a spot this season. Who does he play with in junior?

Gui was highly thought of entering the tourney last year, but soon fell out of favour after showing up 10 pounds overweight for the December camp.

He lost the weight Sutter asked him to lose and he was on one of the top two lines at the start of the tourney, but he was sluggish, and ended up being the 13th forward most of the time. That Lats wasn't cut last year after being so overweight and starting him on a top line tells you how highly he was thought of by Sutter, Hartsburg et al.

Losing ten pounds in a week isn't proper, and Latendresse hit a wall. Thing is that Pouliot and Cogliano weren't much better, but this year Gui and Andrew will be counted on to perform well, just as Chipchura, Bolland, Boyd, Comeau et al were counted on to play well last season as 19-year-old, and they came through.

Once he built his strength back up after losing the weight so quickly, Gui went back to Drummondville and had a strong second half, bolting from about 20th to 3rd in goals per game. He has spent this summer training with Scott Livingston, and by all accounts from the Hab development camp, he was inarguably the best player in the camp-ending scrimmage.

If Gui is going to be shutout at the camp, I'm glad it came at the expense of Price (for half a game at least). Looks like Downie may have quelled any momentum the line may have gotten by taking three minor penalties.

Shut-out on the score sheet is a "bad" thing to a skater, not necessarily that he played bad. All moot, because it is worse in that he was injured in the first period, see other thread.
