    Started this thread in 2014/15 when McDavid and Eichel faced off in the tournament. There was a lot of interest in that tournament specifically because of that and many other draft eligibles competing. Last year was a little more dull, as there wasn't as many draft eligibles playing and it was considered a weaker draft. This year is a bit of a different story with a stronger draft and the likes of Dahlin, Svechnikov (hopefully), and Zadina competing. And all of Canada, USA, Sweden, and Finland with some seriously strong teams with Russia and even Czechs not too far behind. Makes for some exciting and unpredictable hockey.

    The Hockey News has the Gold medal odds like this: USA 3-1, SWE 4-1, CAN 5-1, RUS 6-1, FIN 7-1, CZE 15-1 (IIRC)
    I think:
    USA Gold
    Sweden Silver
    Russia Bronze

    Group A.
    USA.
    Finland
    Canada.
    Slovakia.
    Denmark.
    Group B
