    Would love to see him used as a center.

    Wow, didn’t realize all these players are out of the playoffs. If they say yes, Canada’s forwards will be crazy stacked.

    Monahan has been out for a couple of weeks with an upper and lower body injury. Extremely unlikely he'll be on the team.

    I look forward to seeing Lehkonen at 100% and with a little added muscle. It would be huge if he could score 25.

    Players are dropping like flies. Torpcheck, Huberdeau, Eckblad, and Luongo may soon be added to the invitation list. But will they accept?

    Don't forget there can be a few additions from teams with 1st round exits. It will be a very good team regardless. Goaltending is a bit of a question mark though.

    Would be fun to see as many of the stars play together since we didn't get to see...

    Barzal Crosby Tavares
    McKinnon McDavid Hall
    Stamkos Seguin Giroux
    Staal Bergeron Marchand
    Benn, Couturier, Marchessault, Tropcheck

    .. in South Korea.

    Too bad Betman is the same class of idiot as Bergevin.

    That is one hell of a good offense. I wonder if NHL players will take part in the 2022 Olympics, Sweden could have a nice D if the development goes OK:

    EK Dahlin
    Hedman Boqvist
    OEL Ekholm
    Strålman Sandin

    Sweeden is producing the best dmen lately. That will be the best dcore in 2022 - and at the World Cup of Hockey in 2020.

    In the near future, we may see a Norris Trophy finalist list of Karlesson, Hedman, and Dahlin.

    I just hope that list includes a Hab.

    I imagine the likes of Salming and Lidstrom have made the D position very sexy among Swedish youth for decades now. It just keeps getting better!

    When we saw the reception Salming received in the Canada Cup when Sweden played the first game in Toronto, we realized he was very good. The first D star in Sweden was otherwise Lennart Svedberg, known as Lill-Strimma Svedberg, he was an offensive D and the first and only western European player invited to train under Soviet's famous coach Tarasov. He was the main reason Sweden beat the Soviet Union in 1970 (4-2 and the first time in 7 years). He was named the best defenseman in the WC in 1970. Unfortunately he was killed in a road accident only 28 years old (drunk driving). I have heard that he was the main reason Salming chose to play D.

    Makes me think, it would be nice if young Montrealers and Quebecers still had Subban to look up to in Montreal.

    But we have an arrogant idiot as GM, who, like Chip Kelly in his brief stint in the NFL, thinks he's more important than his stars. Notice the difference between Bergevin and Chip Kelly is that Kelly got fired right away when it was apparent he wasn't building winning teams, but destroying them.

    I hadn't heard of Svedberg before. Thanks for the history lesson. :)

    Bjornfot is probably a better prospect than Sandin, but its just nitpicking at that point

    Barzal just accepted and he mentioned McDavid was coming.

    The worlds will be worth watching just to see those two play.

    Would be great if some stars played on their wings, or if Drouin got a chance because so many declined. Drouin could learn a thing or two about using skill and talent to actually create scoring chances as opposed to wandering around aimlessly, stickhandling into the corner and turning it over.

    Indeed, with their skating capabilities I bet they love they large ice surfaces.

    Or if they lose to the Preds in 4 straight games there is still time for MacKinnon to go.
