Just thinking that next years 18 year old Canadian defensemen are quite unlucky since 5 of 7 d on the World Jrs. this year are 18 years olds and likely to return next year as 19 year olds. There will only be 2 spots open and how hard will that be to get one of those two spots. Cam Barker made it last year as an 18 when the D was all 19 year olds. But I think he was the only one. We seem to be in a two year cycle. One year predominately 19 the next 18. Is this a good thing?
