Wow, the groups look more than a little lopsided. The U.S. should have no problem coasting to the medal round in Group A.

The list of players released from camp includes seven forwards and two defencemen. The first nine of an expected 18 selection camp cuts are:

Forwards
Brendan Gallagher - Vancouver Giants (WHL) - Montreal Canadiens
Joey Hishon - Owen Sound Attack (OHL) - Colorado Avalanche
Ryan Howse - Chilliwack Bruins (WHL) - Calgary Flames
Brad Ross - Portland Winterhawks (WHL) - Toronto Maple Leafs
Reilly Smith - Miami University (CCHA) - Dallas Stars
Garrett Wilson - Owen Sound Attack (OHL) - Florida Panthers
Linden Vey - Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL) - Los Angeles Kings

Defencemen
Jesse Blacker - Owen Sound Attack (OHL) - Toronto Maple Leafs
Brayden McNabb - Kootenay Ice (WHL) - Buffalo Sabres

With the cuts, the selection camp roster now consists of 30 players. The remaining players will dress for Team Canada's final training camp game against the CIS All-Star Team on Tuesday.

Head coach Dave Cameron will make the final cuts on Wednesday morning when the 22-man roster is finalized for the 2011 Team Canada World Junior Championship team.

I was surprised to see Vey get cut so soon. I thought he had a pretty good shot at making the team. Oh well, if Etem makes the American team, maybe Pitlick will get an opportunity to play with Vey in MH and hopefully get a bit of a boost offensively.

He's sparked with Vey gone and Etem there so I don't see why the success can't continue. He's certainly shown that he can handle more responsibility.

I'm really rooting for Hamilton and Roy. This tournament will be so much better to watch if we have them stick around. Good for player development and player value.

He is but they are deep at center. Couturier, Schenn, Johansen, RNH, Pirri, Sheahan and Czikis. I think you can eliminate Czikis from that equation with his lower back injury. Love to see RNH make it but with the role available I'd put my money on Sheahan for personal taste. Sheahan's size, grit, intelligence and strength are hard to ignore. Tonight's game will tell.

Live scoreboard from tonights game. Roy starting for the CIS squad. Hamilton with an assist early. I think him and Sheahan on a bottom six line should be a lock. As well as PK partners.

Hishon deserves to be on the wing at least, wow.

Must be an IIHF seeding thing. I know in the mens' World Championship it seems like whomever wins the gold medal ends up in a group full of the Latvias of the world the next year.

Couturier is playing the wing tonight. There is healthy competition ahead of the undersized Hishon. Especially in the top six offensive spots where Hishon would only be effective. He doesn't hold his own in the bottom against others.

Im pretty sure they switched goalies, so Roy finished with 2ga on 24 shots and now Pickard is in net and has 2ga on 8 shots.

Wasn't Roy switched out a half hour ago?

Nevermind my comments. I read that as well on Bob's twitter. The boxscore told me otherwise. Thanks for the reminder Digger & Tv14.

Hammerton just potted a geno from Sheahan and Howden. I think my Sheahan prediction will stand and he will play on a line with Hamilton at the JRS.

I also see a Visentin/Roy combo in net.

I think Hamilton's made the team on Sheahan's wing, or just on his own.

I think Roy made the team, and depending on the quality of shots/saves he made, it's between him and Visentin for the starting job IMO. I think Visentin has the edge unfortunately.
