Confirmed now, Gaborik will play for Slovakia

Kopecky has some injury but said he would come if it doesn't require a surgery. He will know on Monday.

Tatar definitely won't come as Detroit wants to call him up for playoffs.

Hagman is a lock to the team, imo.

Czech republic: Z. Michalek, Hanzal, Vrbata confirmed they want to go so they should be added, Hudler is okay (no injury) and I suppose he is ready to go. We will know more about Cervenka later today. Probably after game vs Russia.

Canada added to their roster: Robidas, Dillon, Justin Schultz and TJ Brodie.

// + Ladd and goalies Mike Smith and Garnett.

But what about Ruutu, Lehtonen or Leino. No words on them? Won't they participate?
Ruutu and Leino are having surgery on their injuries. I don't know if they even asked Lehtonen after what happened last year... It will be interesting to see if they save M. Koivu a spot in case the Wild are eliminated fast.

Oh that's too sad.. I really feel for you guys but still, you never know, you can surprise, maybe like we did in 2010. You always have competitive team.
Btw. What was with Lehtonen last year?

Is that D Lajunen going to be on team? Take anyone from our 4th tier league and he's probably better than Lajunen. What a horrible player in the EHT..

What a horrible team. Well, its High end team in terms of players who play in europe, but there's only that much they can do if it hasn't a world-class sharp tip of the blade. The team already looks horrible in the EHT, how are they going to change the dircetion when there is week to the championships.. I think getting into top 7 is the main goal for the team, but of course anything can happen if they can find teamplaying somehow.

Concerning the Blue Jackets...

Quote:
Cam Atkinson (high-ankle sprain), Brandon Dubinsky (sprained knee), Tim Erixon (ankle bursa sac), Jack Johnson (strained sternoclavicular joint, groin sprain), Nikita Nikitin (right foot or ankle, but all-over bruises) are all unable to represent their countries in the upcoming IIHF World Championships, May 3-19 in Stockholm and Helsinki.

To this date, the Blue Jackets will have three players, all Russians, playin the Worlds: goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, defenseman Fedor Tyutin and center Artem Anisimov.

Nothing about Gaborik was said. Not sure what that means, saw in a post above that someone said he was going, but I can't confirm or deny that.

Thank you for the information. Conserning Gaborik, unfortunately he will not participate at the WC. Marián Gáborík has groin injury and won't attend WC...

Add Jay Harrison (Canada) and Ilya Bryzgalov (Russia) and I believe It is Justin Schultz not Jeff Schultz.

Looking at the confirmed NHLers, Voracek and/or Hudler might be playing center.

Btw. What was with Lehtonen last year?
Last year Lehtonen broke down in the first game against the USA. You can't blame him for the loss because most of the team played like crap, but Lehtonen was bad too. He left the game after allegedly sustaining an injury after Bobby Ryan collided into him. Some people who are close to the team have since claimed or at least hinted that he wasn't really injured but had a mental breakdown. Whether he had a physical injury or not, the tournament ended very badly for him last year.

Apparently they have asked him to join the team again this year, but so far he hasn't said yes or no. Personally I doubt he's coming, but we should know soon for sure.

I apologize for false info on Gaborik. First the media wrote that he would come but a couple of hours later they said that Columbus won't let him due to groin injury. So only Sekera and Kopecky for Slovakia.

Denmark will have to fight to stay up..

Only NHL players confirmed for Denmark are:

Mikkel Boedker - Phoenix Coyotes
Philip Larsen - Dallas Stars
Oliver Lauridsen - Philedelphia Flyers

Wont be playing due to PO

Lars Eller - Montreal Canadiens
Peter Regin - Ottawa Senators (Wont be using him, could send him to get some confidence imo)
Frans Nielsen - New York Islanders (most important player for Denmark)
Jannik Hansen - Vancouver Canucks.

Called up from the AHL to join PO:
Frederik Andersen - Norfolk Admirals -> Anaheim Ducks (Will be missed ALLOT)
Nicklas Jensen - Chicago Wolves -> Vancouver Canucks

Great opportunity and experience for him, I will take a look at him for sure.

I think David Moss (Phoenix) confirmed to join USA team.
You can also add Jiri Tlusty - Czech rep.

//By the way, you have in the list for team Canada a player named Cal O'Reilly but it is Ryan O'Reilly. I think Cal is his brother that is playing in Russia, KHL.

//Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta (both NJD) added to USA team.

Just heard the news that Bryz will be #1 goalie for team Russia. #2 will be Bob or Varly. That's something I don't understand. How Bryz can be #1 with all that effort he made this season.
