Looks to me that Roy will head into the tourney as the starter, with Visentin as his backup. Hamilton is a lock to make the team. He passed every test thrown at him with flying colors.

They probably won't name a starter until after their pre-tourney games. I hope you're right though and Roy is named the starter.

I agree with your take on Hamilton. It'll be very hard for them to cut him after tonight.

This is what I think the team will look like:

Roy
Visentin

Ellis Cowen
DeHaan Gudbrandson
Olsen Despres
murray

Connolly Schenn Couturier
Pirri Johanson Schwartz
Eakin Leblanc Kassian
Foligno Sheahan Hamilton
Nugent-Hopkins

Roy and Hamilton both make it. Kind of surprised to see RNH and Ryan Murphy get cut. It's always nice to see draft eligible players in the tournament, especially with the Oil destined for a high pick. Oh well.

I was surprised that Murphy was cut as well, especially since Tyson Barrie made the team. I guess they were looking for an older team this time around.

RNH is beginning to look more and more like Seguin. Cut from the WJC, likely still to be drafting with a lottery pick.

Kind of suprised by him and Murray both being cut. I thought they would keep one of the two around as a 7th man. Age is almost a prerequisite if you're not making a tremendous impression.

Czizikas better put on a display considering that his coach kept him over Sheahan who had an excellent camp. Little bit of favourtism by coach Cameron?

Fun to watch Roy and Hamilton.

Sad to see RNH not make it, something tells me Coutierer will be property of the Islanders, so was hoping to watch a potential Oiler.

I'm glad to see Finland catch a break with that group, and hopefully they give the Americans a run for their money.

On the surface thats what it looks like. He's going to have to play his ass off to justify the pick because there were some awfully good players that went home today.

Here are some past and present Oilers that have played for Canada in the World Jr's. Almost complete, I might've missed a few, and I don't have enough hockey knowledge to do the players from the 80s.

2011 Roy, Hamilton
2010 Hall, Eberle
2009 Eberle
2007 Cogliano, Gagner
2006 Cogliano, Dubnyk
2005 Fraser, Belle
2003 Lupul
2002 Stoll
2001 Stoll, Torres
1997 Devereaux
1995 Smyth, Harvey
1994 Harvey, Peca
1993 Pronger, McAmmond
1991 Falloon

I thought there would've been more.

Also interesting fact, in 1978, the only year Wayne Gretzky played in the World Jrs, Steve Tambellini was also on the team.

He was borderline because of so many returning veterans, although many think he still deserved a chance to be their 3rd or 4th line centre.

I remember watching last year thinking that Hall could potentially be an Oiler come Fall so you never know. Here is to hoping!

An article and video about Team Canada's two goaltending bunk buddies. Apparently they both sleep in peace to the tune of each others snoring... Visentin's face is priceless when he gets selected 27th by the 'Yotes. You know he wasn't expectintg that much like everyone else in the world wasn't either.
