Our team is going to be quite terrrible this year with all the injuries and declining players. he only thing they have going for them: no expectations.

Could partly be the effect of Sochi coming up, as well. Some players may want to concentrate on that already and skip worlds.

Team Canada looks strong..

But hey, at least we have the hoff... And i think Goc might have a great impact on the team. He certainly isn't a top-scorer, but imho he's a pretty decent playmaker.

Not on D as of yet... I'd like to see a few more significant additions on D before I'd say we are in good shape...but it's a good start.

As Sportsnet's Rob Kerr just mentioned, Flames defenceman Chris Butler will represent the US at world championships. Jiri Hudler and Roman Cervenka will be on Czech squad, while Mikael Backlund is likely on radar for Swedes. I was surprised to hear Team Canada hasn't asked T.J. Brodie to attend, although that could change.

So Pavelec, Hudler and Cervenka join Voracek, Smid, Hejda and Fleischmann and will participate at the wc 13

Ho hum...we look strong every year but lately seem to be losing in the quarters and semi's a lot. We haven't won since 2007, hopefully we can win it this year and then prepare to defend Olympic gold.

OT but wow does Finland look like trash..no offense but damn looks like it will be a very young team.

That's not true every year... Immediately after Vancouver sending teams of marginal NHL players and rookies or 2nd year players. Last year was the 1st year since 09 that they sent a decent team and if it were not for Getzlaf being such an egghead, we should have played for a medal.

Maybe it's just the ******* in me but I expect us to win every year. I'm one of those people. Anything but gold and it's a disappointment in my mind. Hockey is Canada and Canada is hockey and expectations are always high

What pisses me off is players that say NO.
I don't have the stats but I think Canada has more players that say no than any other team. What is it, 2 weeks? And Hockey Canada treats them like gold, but they still say no. I guess the money makes them forget what a real fan is.

There's also some players that just can't come due to insurance issues ie. Weber.

Not young, just BAD. There are very few players with even somewhat promising futures ahead of them.

Goalie Antti Raanta is in a God-mode right now. Otherwise it looks really bad, but this is exactly what the Finnish Ice Hockey Association and SM-Liiga have been driving for, so I have to raise my hat and congratulate them for their success.

edit. The official translation is Finnish Ice Hockey Association, not Federation.

Both Raanta and Ortio are showing promise, but that doesn't tell anything about their potential performances in the tournament. Osala could still get a chance in the NHL á la Komarov and there could be something in Salminen. Aside from those four, I don't see much promise in this group. The team only has once decent center, the rest of them don't even deserve to be mentioned.

For Denmark: It seems we will have 4 out of the possible 10 AHL/NHL players.

Oliver Lauridsen (Philadelphia) - confirmed.
Mikkel Bødker (Phoenix) - likely.
Philip Larsen (Dallas) - likely.

In playoffs:
Frans Nielsen (NY Islanders).
Jannik Hansen (Vancouver)
Lars Eller (Montreal)

Released from AHL:
Markus Lauridsen (Lake Erie Monsters/Colorado)- confirmed.

Benched or called up from AHL, but not released:
Peter Regin (Ottawa).
Nicklas Jensen (Vancouver).
Frederik Andersen (Anaheim).

So both Lauridsen brothers (Oliver+Markus) will play in the WC, and both will be having their debut for the Danish NT. With also Philip Larsen it will be the best Danish defense in ages, though without Frederik Andersen the goalie position will be weaker. A lot will depend on Mikkel Bødker finding the goal scoring form he had in SM-liiga during the lockout, since he is the only available forward so far from NA.

Since NYI could be exited fast by Pittsburgh (if they end up as 8'th in the east) Frans Nielsen would be available well. The NT will keep some spots open.

The 2010 team had plenty of talent, especially at forward, but as you said was young and inexperienced and I guess it showed by finishing with a losing record. It should be noted though that most teams that year sent weaker than usual rosters. The Czech's won with a total of four NHL players (two of them goalies) on their team.

People always point out all the talent Canada is missing ever year, but that is something most countries (and all of the legit contenders) have to deal with. Other countries may have more of their 'A' squad show up most years but they also don't have the depth Canada has. A half dozen 'name' Finn players missing probably impacts the overall talent level of that team far more than two dozen 'name' Canadian players not being able to make it.

Anyway... as it stands now, at forward at least, Canada is looking really strong.

Are M.Koivu and Granlund going if Minnesota doesn't make the play offs?

Edit: Ok, I guess it doesn't matter now
But what about Ruutu, Lehtonen or Leino. No words on them? Won't they participate?

Gaborik said some time ago (before being traded) that he would come if possible. It's not confirmed yet, but it looks like he will play now that Columbus is out.
