Boone Jenner and Tom Wilson would be a sweet 4th line. Don't know who else to put on that line but i can see Jenner and Wilson being a good hitting line.

Ceci was the biggest omission for me. Especially because he got an invite last year, isn't terrible this year, and two of his teammates got invites (Monahan and Graovac).

It going to be interesting who they pick for the big ice. It's too bad its not in Canada because no one would have a chance against a checking line like:

Ritchie Jenner Wilson

But skating ability plays a huge factor in this. Does anyone know about the skating ability of some of the lesser knowns?

Lipon, Beauvillier, Sissons, Camara, Graovac?

Camara is probably the most physical guy after Wilson. If they go the physical route Camara-Jenner-Wilson could be sick. They can skate and play too.

Harrington was a stud last year and Murphy wasn't on the team. That was Murray. I was expecting better from someone with Hockey Guru in his name.

TBH, he has no business there. Bussières, Mantha and Carrier would have been much better candidates.

I understand giving RNH the C, he certainly has the most experience, but I would've liked to see it go to Murray, obviously before injury.

RNH just doesn't strike me as captain material.

I don't think it would make sense if RNH was the captain. Despite being in junior hockey what is now over a year ago and being the same age, he has already played an entire season in the NHL so he isn't in the same situation as most of the guys on the team.

Huberdeau,RNH ,Scheifele with Hamilton and Rielly on the backend and Subban in net. I don't even need to look at the other lines to know this team is an automatic medal contender.

I'd like to see them go up against a U.S. fourth line of Matteau, Biggs, and Ryan Hartman.

Yea. They wouldn't be much fun to play against.

I've watched Tyler Biggs all year for the Oshawa Generals. Huge plug with little hockey sense. Typical leaf pick.

I am surprised Pouliot got an invite over Pulock.
