Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by byeyimini, Jun 26, 2007.
Will any of the 2008 draft class make the U20 team this year ? will any even get an invite ?
Almost sure about:
voinov and filatov in team russia and stamkos in team canada.
Pietrangelo, Stamkos, and Tavares will all get invites(yes i know Tavares is not eligible until 09, but they care currently trying to get him to be eligible for the 08 draft). Drew Doughty will be on the team.
Voynov already played on the last WC, i think he's lock.. and maybe Petrov.
colin wilson from the us should be there. maybe thomas mccollum.
Mikhail Stefanovich will again be representing and carrying team belarus on his back.
You are right. Only flaw is Philip's name
Jordan Schroeder is '09 draft eligible and I think he's got a pretty good shot at making the US team.
Filatov is 50/50. He's too young.
If I'm not mistaken, Belarus relegated last year.
It is probably fair to say that the Super Series roster (3G 8D 15F) is what Hockey Canada currently considers to be their core of players to select from for the 08 WJ team. Of course, there is plenty of room for guys to have strong first halfs next season to earn invites to the December camp and get on the team, but one has to assume that the Super Series roster is the primary list right now.
Based on that, 08 eligibles that are being seriously considered are Doughty, Schenn and Boychuk. Interesting to note that all three of them are late 89s, and the only 90 on the team is Tavares.
i'm sure Yann SauvÃ© will be there.
