Yeah, I would say that Canada is the favourite, especially because the tournament is in Ottawa. The Swedes have a fantastic team, and the US will be very good too. Russia is always dangerous, so they might be in the mix as well. I think Canada will win gold, Sweden silver and the US bronze, beating Russia. Providing the round-robin and cross-overs allow for such machups, anyway.

Here are some guys to keep an eye on:

Canada:

John Tavares: Consensus top-2 pick in 09 draft, Canada's top forward.
Cody Hodgson: Vancouver first rounder, very crafty and will anchor a scoring line.
Zach Boychuk: Carolina first rounder- energy player who can pot a few goals
Angelo Esposito: Finally makes the WJ after getting cut 4 times previously.
Alex Pietrangelo: Started the season with the Blues
Thomas Hickey: Captain of Team Canada
Ryan Ellis: Underaged swingman for Canada, will be a PP specialist. Eligible '09.
Cody Goloubef: CBJ second rounder
Jordan Eberle/Tyler Ennis: Two undersized snipers, both first round picks in '08 by Edmonton and Buffalo, respectively.
Tyler Myers/Keith Aulie: The "Twin Towers" on the Canada blueliner, Myers is 6'7" and Aulie 6'6"

Sweden

Mikael Backlund: Flames first rounder, has a ton of offensive skill
Magnus Svensson-Paarjarvi: Likely a top 10 pick in 2009, very good with the puck
Joakim Andersson: Another Swedish Detriot prospect, IMO he's Draper's replacement down the road.
Oscar Moller: He was with the Kings up until they let him play in the tourny, was playing awesome in LA, should be a dominant forward at the WJs. He's very physical.
Erik Karlsson: Sens first, can really put up points from the blueline
Victor Hedman: Nuff said.

USA

Thomas McCollum: First round pick of the Wings, goalie of the future in Detroit.
Jon Blum: A very high scoring blueliner, Preds prospect.
Teddy Ruth: CBJ prospect, has no neck.
Aaron Pulashaj: Offensive type, creative
James van Riemsdyk/Colin Wilson/Jordan Schroeder: This was the top line for the Americans last year, the trio returns for another go-around. The were dominant last year, this year should be more of the same.

Russia

Nikita Filatov: Nik will be one of the top players for the Russians, he had a great tourny last year and will likely be one of the top scorers this year
Sergei Korostin: High scoring forward who plays junior in Canada
Dimitri Kugryshev: Another sniper who plays in the CHL
Slava Voynov: A gritty, hard hitting blueliner. Kings second rounder.

Finland

Harri Sateri: Excellent goalie, a Sharks prospect. How do they keep stocking up on awesome goaltenders?
Toni Rajala: The Finns top forward, very skilled.

Czech Republic

Michal Jordan: Steady as a rock most of the time, will anchor the Czech's blueline.
Tomas Knotek: Was Voracek's centerman for most of last season, good playmaker
Tomas Kubalik: CBJ prospect, good size, plays a power-forward style
Vladimir Ruzicka: good scorer
Tomas Vincour: Should be drafted fairly high in '09. Plays with Edmonton of the WHL.

Germany

Timo Pielmeier: He'll keep the Germans in most games, a very talented goaltender

Slovakia

Jaroslav Janus: Goalie, fun to watch because he's like Tim Thomas, kind of sketchy in his mechanics.
Richard Panik: Offensive player, will score some points for the Slovaks.

Kazakhstan / Latvia

I don't really know of anybody for the Kazakhs os Latvians.

I'm excited to finally see Rajala play.
Also looking forward to watching Panik, Vincour, Paajarvi, Ellis, and team Sweden overall.

Trent Vogelhuber scored tonight in a 5-1 loss to Michigan for Miami. It was his first goal and first point as a Redhawk. Miami is in a bit of a slump right now, but it's nice to see him get on the board.

Thanks for that M4H, has he been with the team since the start of the season? I know he missed all of last year in the USHL with injury. How is Weber looking?

Trent has been at Miami since Spring semester last year, but he was still rehabbing his knee up through this past Summer. He's been practicing with the team all season, but didn't play until the Alaska-Fairbanks games. Trent actually spent some time on the first line with Tommy Wingels and Justin Mercier for his first few games with Miami, I'm guessing they were trying to get him a point or two to get his confidence up. More recently he has been playing on the fourth line, and he has missed a couple games since Alaska due to his knee.

Weber has been struggling as of late with Miami. Michigan's second goal last night took a very weird bounce off Reichard (Miami's goalie), hit Weber's skate and redirected back into the net. Coach Blasi has benched him a few times and scratched him for a couple of games. He is absolutely massive for a freshman defenseman, and he uses his body very well. His problems start when he gets the puck though. It's like a ticking time-bomb on his stick. I'm chalking it up to him being one of Miami's top pairing dmen as a freshman, but if he doesn't improve his puck-handling and passing by the end of the season I'll be very concerned.

Interesting stuff again man, thanks.

I'm not too concerned about the puck stuff yet with Weber, as long as he is positionally sound and doesn't make too many mistakes in the defensive zone as a freshman.

He and Goloubef, along with Ruth and Clitsome (already with Syracuse) gives us a very good group of college trained blueline prospects.

I have seen a few Miami(OH) games. It appeared Weber was on the top pair for penalty killing.

Not sure about his rights, but I can answer on his play, he spend a little over a year in Syracuse.

His first year was a decent rookie year on an average team. He had trouble with rebound control IIRC, but was getting better as the year went on. Second year he got hurt pretty bad, wasn't able to come back from the injury that year, and then left to go back to Europe.

I thought he had some potential, but he never overwhelmed me.

Greeting Blue Jackets fans

Just wanted to give you a quick note on one of your prospects, Allen York.

I just finished catching the ECAC Quarterfinals between #2 Cornell and #11 RPI. You all would be awfully proud of your prospect right now. He was just ubelievable in shutting out Cornell tonight to take game #1 in the best-of-three series. For those that don't follow college hockey, Lynah Rink (Cornell's home ice) is one of the toughest barns to play in, but York was the biggest reason why RPI won 1-0. Cornell pepppered him for much of the game, but he held his ground.

Two things that he did remarkably well in the game were using his quickness with the glove and stopping those second and third chances. He also did pretty well in the rebound control department too.

I have to admit that I haven't seen a lot of York this year, even though I've seen RPI about 8 times already, but this was one heckuva performanc that he put on tonight.

Thanks for the report, Chick. Seems like we have pretty good scouting in the goalie area!

From the Dispatch beat writers online chat:

Quote:
[Max] Will Filatov be spending most of his summer in Columbus or will he go to Russia for the majority of the off season?

[Portzline] Don't know for sure. I'm sure he'll spend some time in Mother Russia. But he'll spend significant time with Barry Brennan, the Blue Jackets strength and conditioning coach. The goal for Filatov is 190 by September.

Interesting read from a Calgary blogger

http://www.fiveholefanatics.ca/2009/...n-lalande.html

Quote:
Lost amidst the other, far more immediately relevant deals this past deadline day was a fairly innocuous swap between the Calgary Flames and the Columbus Blue Jackets: Calgary moved Kevin Lalande for a 4th round draft pick. At the time, was I surprised the Flames managed to get anything as high as a 4th rounder for what was a at the time an ECHL goalie who had been previously drafted in the 5th round. Seemed like a steal, even when the return was so modest.

The Blue Jackets installed Lalande as their AHL starter (since their previous starter and back-up were up in the NHL at the time) and he promptly won 3 straight games and was named AHL player of the week. Since then, I've kept a closer eye on the former Flames property and am starting to come to the shakey conclusion that Calgary may have traded away their best goaltending prospect.
