Good idea for a thread as for as camp goes today the US had
Sieloff - Trouba as the top pairing and
Gaudreau-Grimaldi-Miller as the first/2nd line

also Finland has been practicing with

Lehkonen-Barkov-Haapala
Aaltonen-Teräväinen-Ikonen
Granlund-Salomäki-Armia

as its top 9

I may have not been following all too closely but how did our prospects that were trying out for the U.S. make out? Did they all make the preliminary roster?

Edit: I see my question has now been answered in the post.

Just so everyone knows, the USA will be announcing their rosters on the 22nd.


Either way, I'm fairly confident that Canada will be a top contender for the WJC.

Here is what I see:

1. Canada
2. Russia
3. Finland
4. USA
5. Sweden
6. Czech Republic

In all honesty, I think 3-6 will be super close, I think any of those could medal.

Canada loses 3-2 to Finland. I'm not getting too worried as the players may have Jet-lag, plus the reffing was absolutely horrible.

seemed like Wotherspoon still needs to get used to the big ice because his gap control was pretty bad

He had a real rough game as did Subban, but on the other hand Granlund was probably the second best player for Finland.

Solid as expected but didn't stand out but that might be a good thing as a defensive player.

Salomaki too. That line will do some damage behind the Barkov line

I'm not 100% sure but I think the game was played on a small rink since SM-Liiga uses NHL type rink size.

I don't understand why Brossiot was cut and Subban the starter.

I read that Brossoit had a good camp as well. I think his stats previous to camp is what decided it. Also I have a feeling the goaltending was determined before camp even started.

Apparently I am mistaken, I was going off what someone on the board told me/posted.

He didn't have a great summer camp but was the second best statistical goalie at the final evaluation camp he seemed like he never had a shot and was invited to even out the goalies in camp.

Thats what I heard on the fan 960 too, they said he had a great camp and when told him it had nothing to do with his camp.

So obviously some politics involved here likely.
