Covering the WJC, Want YOUR Ideas!

Hey hockey fans,

My name is Salim Valji and I'll be covering the 2012 WJC for a website, and was granted full media access by Hockey Canada to all games, including the medal round in Calgary. I don't believe I can post the site here since that would be advertising (which the mods don't approve of), but just Google my name.

I want some ideas from fans. What do YOU want to read about during the tournament? Who do YOU want ME to interview? Specific players, IIHF Executives? Any interesting story lines you want me to cover? I'll focus on Canada (I'm based in Edmonton) but really want some interesting stuff from countries like Denmark and Slovakia, European countries where players haven't been in the public eye lots, etc.

Ideas I have:
--Interview with Rene Fasel, President of IIHF. Oscar Klefbom, Oilers 1st round pick. Any draft eligible players and NHL picks. Perhaps even Kevin Prendergast, Hockey Canada's Head Scout.

--European goalies. Much of the time the European teams rely on their keepers to keep them in games. With the school of thought that Canada's goalie development having tailed off in recent years, get an insight into the Euro goalie stories and the way they train, etc.

--If there are any famous alumni get a few quotes from them.

Tell me what YOU want to read about and who you want me to interview, interesting story lines, etc.

Thanks a bunch folks!

15?????
I don't think any team has a 15 year old playing for them, 16 yes

I like to see stories about what it means to the players to represent their country, their experience playing in the country that's hosting, what the juniors mean for them, etc. Guess I'm saying I like a personal look into what makes them tick.

Oh YA, I love to hear what hockey legacy they have if they do (ex. famous hockey fathers, grandfathers, etc.)
