Cody Bass survives first cuts

http://tsn.ca/world_jrs/news_story/?ID=188385&hubname=

I've always been a fan of this kid (even if he's with you guys )

Let's hope he makes that team as the character 4th line centre who knows what his role is to the team.

15 forwards left, 2 probably cuts.

Good luck Cody!

I think his chances are improved by the fact that Toews has a nagging shoulder injury that he aggreavated in the last red and white game. They may want the 13th forward to be a centre like Bass that could fill in incase of further injury or playing dirty 3rd and 4th line minutes.

It would be nice to see one our draft picks make the Canadian Team. I can't remember the last time one of our draft picks played a significant role on the team besides Spezza.

Jeff Glass - although the significance of his role on that team is up for debate.

Goalies are always significant.

Woah, they cut some pretty damn good players, was it just because they were younger than average or did they have a bad tryout?

You know, I've heard that about past Senators teams too and we all know that is absolute bullcrap.

Glass may have not been a standout and winning a gold for sure doesn't mean that he is a future all-star but to consider his contribution to that team as negligible is idiotic. Defenceman, okay. Forward, sure. Goalie, no way. If the goalie doesn't belong you find out extremely quickly. He deserved that gold as much as anyone.

I think it's generally considered the least amount of impact that a goalie has had on a Canadian team winning a gold medal. That being said, just winning the starting job on a Canadian Junior team is signficant enough.

The last Sens prospect that I can recall prior to Glass was Brooks Laich, but, he didn't really have a signficant role. Ray Emery almost got the job one year, I recall, but, the competition was pretty tough that year.

Laich had 6 points that year if I recall. I liked him, but he isn't really missed. Hockey Canada seems pretty high on Bass, so I see him staying on a la Clarke MacArthur

Did he backup in 2000? Was there a year with Spezza, Heatley and Emery all on the team?

Emery never played for Team Canada, at least not at the WJC. I don't think Spezza and Heatley played together either.

Spezza and Emery were on the team Volchenkov beat for the gold. I'm 100% certain on this.

Russian captain Anton Volchenkov's goal at 6:51 of the third period proved to be the winner. Alexander Frolov, Stanislav Tchistov, Alexander Polushin and Iouri Troubatchev had the other Russian markers.

Chuck Kobasew had two goals for Canada. Brian Sutherby and Scottie Upshall also scored, while Jason Spezza had two assists.
http://www.cbc.ca/sports/story/2002/...ate020104.html

We had a TON of prospects that game. I was 100% certain that Emery was on the roster for this tournament, but I guess I was mistaken. He was invited to the camp but was cut. I was wrong! Sens site lists him as invited to tournament under career notes.

As a funny: Kovalchuk was on the roster but Anton of all people scored the GWG.

OK, as far as I can tell, since hockeycanada has the worst website I've ever seen, is that Heatley and Spezza both played on the 2000 and 2001 teams, and Emery was at the selection camp for the 2002 team (which Spezza was also on)

You are correct. TSN has a pretty good site for this stuff.

wow, Volchenkov was the captain? And he scored the GWG for the gold against Canada?

Now I see where all his awesomeness is coming from.

Yep, that's when I came an Anton fan!

He had like 2 big hits that game, too.

As somebody else said, he actually played a pretty significant role. He was supposed to be the "size" on the first line with Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau. They even stationed him in front of the net on the first powerplay unit. He was of course supposed to be a complimentary player for those guys, but he wasn't just depth.

Kovalchuk was in the NHL that season. I remember him getting injured late in the year and it costing him the Calder Trophy to Heatley.

Maybe I have my years mixed up. I get confused when people say 2000 or 2001. Does 2000 really mean the x-mas break of 1999-2000 or does it mean 2000-01. I get that mixed up sometimes.

That's tough on Glass I think. He was the best goalie in Canada at the time and won the gold. Lots of Sens fans I think can appreciate losing despite having great forwards and d.

I think people are overly tough on Glass as well... He let in a grand total of 7 goals over 6 games in that tournament. That's an amazing GAA. What else can we ask for from him?
