OT: Why did your username change back to slats432? You're still a part of the HF staff, I hope.

Sorry my friend...I am off the payroll.

Speeds...Tesliuk would get an incomplete rating on a game like this. There was too much firepower on the WHL to actually guage one player.(Except Mikhailishin who was terrible and has been every game.)

Although Darryl Sutter did ooh and ahh at a nice play by Seabrook in the first....

Extremely deep team with tons of high end talent and a several returning players. There just isn't room for all the great players. I really hope Fehr and Stone both make it, but I'm not so sure.

I thought Russell struggled on the defensive side of the puck. Got beat twice wide where he had to take a penalty and was letting Russians behind him several times during the game on fast breaks. He had 2 pts though.

I have a feeling Stone could work his way in as a 4th line centre (becasue he plays the gritty game). His all around style will help him alot as he is a Sutter type of player. As for Fehr, he just might be a victim of too many scorers already being on the team.

My bold prediction for a 4th line is Fehr--Stone--Meyer though.

You can never have enough scorers on a team. If Fehr is physical and good enough defensivly....use him on the fourth line. He has the size. Iwould rather a Colliton/Dixon/? 4th line though. They are troopers that would be great defensivly.

Won't happen. I think Stone and Meyer have little chances of making it even tough they probably deserve to.

He didn't do much and at times looked completly overmatched against the WHL. That said most of the Russians looked that way.
Fehr and Stone should make the WJC team but will they? I have my doubts. Keep in Mind Stone is also a very very good shut down forward.

Will happen. I think Stone and Meyer have good chances of making it probably because they deserve to.
