Canada Russia challenge who will be watching (Hudon representing Canada)

Aug 9th 11AM EST is game one of this searies who else will be watching? This series holds more importance to me than the Olys and apparently to TSN also as they are broadcasting the hockey games over Olympic coverage.

I wish we would've picked up Slepyshev... Will be nice to see Hudon...

Russia seem's pretty shallow ?

Got tickets. 4th row section 24. Watching us shoot twice a game. Too pricey though for the Metro Centre. I actually have two spares for the second day if anyone wants to be that close.

I hope Slepyshev destroys in that tournament, just to give the big FU to every NHL organization for not picking him.

He wasn't passed over because of talent.

Slepyshev has top-end talent. Sure he has big risk.. But the kid could turn out to be a 1st liner in the NHL with hardwork ethic and more strenght... Taking a flyer on that is not a waste.

I realize that, but 7th round picks are usually reserved as "flyer picks." It was a shame that he wasn't given a chance. Imagine there was a glimmer of possibility that he would be open to join the NHL and then he tears the league up.

We would hear, non-stop, about how X team had the steal of the draft.

a lot of 2013 draft eligable players on that russian squad.

Shouldn't be too hard for Canada to romp them.

That statement makes absolutely no sense what so ever. The Russian team is comprised mostly of all 1993 born players with only a few 1994 born players and 1 1995. Just because you see draft eligible next to their names means absolutely nothing. Canada is on average a younger team bringing 9 players born in 1994. Russia is missing a few good players due to injury, but other than that they have a full squad ready and determined not to repeat the disaster that was 2007. And don't forget the reason for this tournament is in part the 40th anniversary of 72 and is in Yaroslavl were the tragic accident occurred last year to Lokomotiv, so if you think they won't be highly motivated, you'd better think again.

oh really... no sense at all eh?


birthday means less than years of development.

the canada team is further along in development period.

So get off your high horse fella, geez.

Who says they have less years of development? They are 1993 born players and if you see draft eligible 2013 next to their names, it means simply they were not drafted as 18 year olds. You made your statement that wow what a young team, not even draft eligible yet. That was your point, I was just pointing out the fact, that no... in fact Canada is a younger team on average.

Can you seriously blame teams in the NHL for not picking players that will probably never come over to play in NA ? I think a few teams have learned their lesson.
