Sounds good to me. It's nice to see Zajac get a chance, when he never would at the Olympics.

Now it`s official, Canada has become a new WCH 2011 winner. Seriously, Ladd-Zajac-Clutterbuck is easily one of the best third lines in recent years. It`s unfair!

Fayne is mentioned in that article too. Surprising. Looks like we have a lot of players going this season.

That`s not surprising that`s unthinkable. Also it can raise his value (NaPalm). One way or another, it`s a good experience for both although I`m pissed again - it seems like Americans don`t give a dam **** about this tournament as usual. Canada is going to smack them if they make the prelims.

That team couldn't even make the playoffs in the NHL.

Canada is winning this tournament, hands down. The boys are ready to play. Stamkos and St. Louis will be asked once they're eliminated easily by Pittsburgh.

Sorry, forgot to add why. Goaltending is a bit of a question mark. Would have been nice for Marty to go, it's one of the medals missing from his cabinet.

But he'd probably get exposed. But other than that so far they've got 12 forwards with Zajac, Tavares, Eberle, Zajac and Skinner all added today.

Nash-Spezza-Skinner (no one would get the puck away from these three, ever and Nash and Spezza have had chemistry before)

Ladd-Zajac-Clutterbuck (size, speed, scoring, defense, annoying)

Stewart-Duchene-Vermette (tough on the puck, checking ability and scoring prowess)

Eberle-Tavares-Kane (young, fast and dynamic!)

So 1 forward remains for TC. Probably waiting on Stamkos or St. Louis/

On defense

Burns-Phaneuf (03 picks)
Schenn-Pietrangelo (08 picks)

Methot

Methot will probably be a 7th defenseman, while two more for the third pairing will be added after round 1. Probably waiting for Doughty, Keith, Seabrook. One of those three will definitely be available

Reimer
Dubnyk

They're waiting for a starter from round one. Either Fleury outta PIT, or they're waiting for Ward's answer from CAR. Might also be waiting on Staal from CAR for that extra forward, in which case Vermette or Clutter might be a 13th forward.

I know about Backes and Oshie, but this is really pathetic.

Canada is going to win it all, I agree. And I can`t wait to see the on ice. If Wardo says no (I hope not), let Reimer be the starter. I like the guy, he deserves it for this season and I think he`d do well.


EDIT: No Stamkos please. I`d take Marty anytime, but Stamkos just sucks ATM. "Hey Jason, what you think of Stammer playing anything else than PS3?"

Which is sad. Think Kessel would have something to prove after a ****** Olympics.

Lots of Devils on the team this year because we are out of the playoffs. Let's hope that never happens again.

Wow, I didn't realise how desperate the US team was for warm bodies:

That's pretty desperate.
