2011 IIHF U20 World Junior Championships Thread

I figure this can be all purpose thread for the tournament this coming month.

Team Canada just released their December camp roster, from these names the team will be selected.
Only 1 Dallas prospect made the list, and surprisingly it WAS NOT 1st rounder Scott Glennie, rather it was our 3rd round selection from that same draft, Reilly Smith.

What other Stars prospects will be competing (aside from Jack Campbell)

Really? Glennie is not on the list?!! Guess we can only hope for the heroic rise from the depths of disappointment for this kid. I'm almost done holding my breath.

The loss of Brayden Schenn has really hurt the Wheat Kings and particularly Glennie. He needs to get traded. It's way too early to give up on the kid, and just because he's not invited to the WJC try-out for Canada doesn't make him a bust. Maybe this will be a wake-up call for him to pick up his game.

Though Glennie's goal scoring has dropped off some he is on pace for a career high in assists..He will probably end up with 70-75 points so i don't see how they could leave him off the roster.

A quick look at hockeydb shows he's already passed his goal total from last year in a third of the time played. So on the college level, at least, it looks like his game's progressing just fine.

From what I witnessed at the dev. camp this summer, Reilly Smith has the makings of a solid player provided he puts weight on his frame. He is an incredibly explosive skater. He's a high motor guy, not much coasting out of him. He has an above average skill level, but his skating makes his game. He showed pretty good hockey sense in that environment. He probably can still use some defensive polish like most guys his age, but I think he's got the smarts and drive to fill in that part of his game.

I would caution people to not take his numbers as proof of his upside unless he repeats them next year or gets moved off the line he's on. He's playing with two (pretty good) seniors in the NCAA, which can inflate a young player's point totals. He's still finishing plays at a decent clip, but you can bet a lot of that is because he's got mature players getting him the puck in good spots. I don't get Miami games, so I don't know this for a fact, but it's just pretty common when a guy's production blows up (prime example: Austin Smith with McIntyre last year at Colgate, whose production has fallen off).

I'd say a rough NHL comparison of his upside (provided he can put on 10 lbs minimum without compromising his speed, 20-25 lbs would be ideal) would be something like Nik Hagman. Hopefully, he'll be more consistent than Nik is, but I can see him sticking in a depth role at the very least because of his speed and hustle.

Good info as always. Thanks.
I would take him being a Hagman clone any day.

No, but not something we should take for granted. It helps (a lot) that he was on the team last year.

Ya if not for his heroics in OT last year, he wouldn't even be considered this year based on stats.

Sure, because stats are everything and would supersede him playing on the U.S. development team and having time with those who pick the squad.

Not a total shock. He was never in the running to make it anyways.

Nice reward for him having a good season though!

Nemeth is back in action, so that knee injury wasn't something serious.

Patrik Nemeth AND John Klingberg both make the Swedish WJC squad. That's awesome to see as Klingberg had really come out of nowhere this season and made an impact on Swedish hockey.

Come on, he was taken in the 5th round. This should have been expected.

I wouldn't consider Klingberg a lock yet. If Phoenix decides to send Ekman-Larsson to the WJC, he could be off the final roster. I don't think he'd be the one to go, but it's a possibility.

Either way, that's quite an accomplishment whatever happens with Phoenix.

From reading the Team Sweden thread in the WJC forum it seems like most of the Swedish posters think there are at least one or two more viable candidates to be dropped before Klingberg. Hopefully he stays.

Even if OEL comes back it is highly likely that Klingberg stays, even if he does not play. I expect he will suit up at least once for my beloved Tre Kronor, however.

barring surprises we should see Canada vs US for WJC gold again.

Ever Swedish poster seems to be penciling in Klingberg into the bottom pairing or a paring with Nemeth with Dalbeck the universally accepted "7th" defesnemen.
