World Cup of Hockey

Kulikov makes the Russian team

https://www.nhl.com/news/alex-ovechk...?tid=278386054

Barkov and Jokinen are both playing for Finland.

Guessing Ekblad will make young gun team. Who else makes it?

Let's hope Panthers play so well that they don't give them a chance to attend

The middle of September till the 1st of October is when the tournament runs. Unless Game 7 reaches 1000 overtimes, I doubt anyone would still be playing.

I hope Lou makes it. Big news up here. Rumour is Canada could name all 3 of their goalies today. It comes down to Lou vs Crawford for that third spot.

If Bjugs played how Tro has this year I think he would've made the cut. Tro might be later add guy?

Nice to see Jussi named early; Barkov a given.

Jagr if he wants to play will be there. Hudler today or possible later add.

Huberdeau should join Ekblad later today on NA team.

I thought Gallant was joining the kids table. Speaking of that, who are their goalies supposed to be?

My bad. You are correct. Lot of EDM/Fla influence there on the staff.

Trocheck may not be named initially but he definitely should be in the discussion. He can play basically anywhere in the lineup + PP and PK if needed.

Based on his age, is he USA or NA eligible?

I think Trocheck should get consideration but I always feel like new guys need a longer track record of performance while legacy type players always get more consideration than they should. Basically the selection process isn't fair.

If Price wasnt ready to go, I could see Lou being added. If Price is going, then I expect the other two goalies to be Holtby and Crawford.

If not three named today lots can still happen. Even if three are named today lots can happen with Price. I don't see Habs/Canada want him there with his shaky health. Price will still be named likely but that does not mean much with his health status. Luongo could be backup by early Sept /trending towards starter. Lou trumps Crawford in international tournament all things being equal as they are currently.

I'd say 70% he does not. Does the Habs season hold no weight ? I'm looking forward to this WC, but it's not the Olympics to these players.

JJ was a given as well, considering how well he's played this season + the fact that the team is going through a major youth movement and needs some veteran presence. He's probably going to get the "A" as well.

Yet I've never heard a good explanation for why he wasn't picked for the Olympics when he had his 30 goal season!

Jags apparently asked to not be included to focus on the season.

that legendary focus.

Panthers vs Avs in June, please hockey gods



Interesting, Steve Kouleas and Matt Barnaby think that if Ekblad was eligible, he would be on team Canada over Seabrook. Thinks he is already better than him.

What would the reaction be if Team North America eliminates USA or Canada in the quarterfinals or semi-finals?

Same.

I'll be cheering for Ekblad/Huberdeau

Patriots of the game can suck rocks. I'll cheer for them vs Crosby led team. Toews is real captain of Canada btw.

I doubt Huberdeau plays. And I'd be completely fine with that. Not named to the initial 16.

I should rephrase. I don't doubt it but he's not a lock like it seems some think.

So our reps for now are...

Finland: Barkov, Jokinen
Russia: Kulikov
North America (Young Stars): Ekblad

Anyone think the remaining are possible?

Huberdeau
Bjugstad (he would have to make Team USA and not NA since he'll be 24 by the cutoff)
Trocheck
Hudler (assuming he's still a Panther)

And I realize Jagr wouldn't want to play in this since he said he's done with international competition (which is totally fine by me).

Luongo didn't make the cut and compared to those 3, I think that's fine, assuming Carey Price is healthy. If I were Montreal, I wouldn't let him play in it, heh.

I'm in the camp that PRIVATELY Luongo will make Armstrong eat his words today on "those three goalies are in a class of their own". Sure bud ha.

I hope this decision today propels Lou to ECF/SC run. I know he has it in him.
