2013 World Junior Championships

Team USA vs. Sweden

The Townie has looked pretty good so far for Team USA. Galchenyuk is a beast.

Team Canada vs. Finland

Finland won 3-2. Apparently Subban was shaky and Dougie got 4PIM.

Koko and team Russia haven't played yet.

Obviously just a warm up match, but it was a bit sloppy - lots of minors. Entertaining, especially if you're starved for hockey.

hahha - didn't get to see it Andrew, but during the game the commentators mentioned that, too. Good pace in this one for the first two periods, third slowed down a bit.

It wasnt exciting enough to keep my attention that for sure. Subban let in a weak goal. And two 5 on 3 goals. Team Canada looked bad as a whole. How about watch the hooking and the slashing an the high sticking penalties. They call that every time in Europe.

This, TSN is making a big deal out of Subban's subpar performance. Can't really blame him on the first two goals, the game winner was bad but what can you do?

I don't buy the story that "the goaltending issue is rearing it's ugly head again" it's one game.

Hudon is out of the tourney with a back injury, Mark McNeill gets the call. Canadian defensive pairings shuffled up, Harrington-Hamilton and Ouellet-Rielly are the top two. I like having the more defensive guys to cover the offensive guys, Rielly-Hamilton was always gonna limit Hamilton's offensive game IMO. Rielly's a guy who requires a lot of covering up for.

Subban hasn't been good but the team in front of him has been terrible. If the team ever gets in a groove and Subban still plays bad then I'll be worried but for now I'm not too worried. Subban is still a phenomenal junior goalie.

Good things happen when Grzelcyk is on the ice, they'd be stupid not to take him.

Wasn't so hot on that last PK (how did he end up out high?) but I don't think that would be his job for them anyway.

I thought Grzelcyk was solid, skates well and can really pass for sure. US couldn't stay out of the box and the forwards were weak outside of the Hartman line, just no sustained pressure. US held it together as a team for a couple periods despite the poor forward play and penalties until the third when it all came crashing down.

I thought the team looked lifeless. I didnt see the third, but if that is signs of things to come USA Hockey has some issues next week.

Canada played like **** against Finland too, it's still pre-tournament and the US even has cuts to make (although only one forward and a couple defense). On that note we'll know today if Grzelcyk made it, final cuts are today I believe.

I'd love to see him out there more after a strong period but the entire game is powerplays. Hamilton is shooting the puck, a lot. And has three penalties in two games.

Rakell and Forsberg look great. Now a game misconduct to Jenner.

So Hamilton had a rough game, way too undisciplined. Just a stupid penalty with a minute left. I thought Camara played very strong in limited ice time, not flashy but making good, simple plays. Couple nice defensive plays. Binnington was great, starter's role is still a battle IMO. Binnington won this round but Subban was still the guy going in and he wasn't as bad as some amateur pundits believe, the third goal was deflected off a defenseman which most people didn't even know.

Housely might favor his Minnesota boys over Grzelcyk ss its close amongst Reilly, Skeji and Grzelcyk.

I didn't 't know until today Charlestown was a suburb of Boston...lol. According to Duthie.

No idea what the coaches are going to do with this one. There is no denying that Subban has been the worst goalie in camp/pre-tournament games, but I still think his pedigree gives him a shot at holding onto the job.

Canada's schedule gets progressively more difficult though, so I think we may see them split the Germany/Slovakia games and then the coaches could make a call on who the real starter could be then moving forward into the more difficult games.

Pretty disappointed by the play of our guys so far. Camara has been ok but hasn't got much opportunity.
