    This is how I see the Canadian WJC team stacking up...

    Goalies:
    Marc Andre Fleury
    Jeff Druin-Deslauriers

    Defense:
    Brayden Coburn
    Dion Phaneuf
    Brent Seabrook
    Kevin Kleinn
    Shawn Belle
    Ian White
    Bruno Gervais

    Forwards:
    Jeff Carter
    Sidney Crosby
    Eric Fehr
    Corey Perry
    Anthony Stewart
    Jeff Tambellini
    Brent Burns
    Stephen Dixon
    Ryan Getzlaf
    Daniel Paille
    Mike Richards
    Maxime Talbot
    Jeremy Colliton

    Lines:

    Phaneuf - Coburn
    Seabrook - White
    Kleinn - Belle
    Gervais

    Crosby - Carter - Fehr
    Tambellini - Richards - Perry
    Paille - Getzlaf - Burns (The energy/shut down line)
    Talbot - Dixon - Stewart
    Colliton

    And personally I believe that Daniel Paille is a lock for the captaincy.

    I love that top line.

    :handclap:

    That would be my lineup as well (without possibly Dixon).

    Captain: Daniel Paille
    Assistant: Ian White
    Assistant: Dion Phaneuf

    Is Jeremy Swanson at the camp? I would consider him over Klein or Belle.

    Jeremy Swanson is there yes, I just havent really seen enough of him to be honest.

    I like Kleinn and what he brings to the ice, especially at both ends. He's been playing a lot better in the OHL the past month and I think he'd be quite successful with the large ice.

    And well Belle, i just would love to see this guy use the big ice to his advantage.

    The only question mark is whether White's ankle is healed enough - my understanding is that he's only just starting to skate now. I agree - I love that top line (I'm kinda partial to the second line too) :)

    Phaneuf and Coburn would be a killer top pair, but I bet they're not paired together in Finland...

    I would take Josh Gorges on D over Belle (OVERRATED!) and Gervais or whatever any dayt of the year.

    Hey Brock, what type of role do you see Phaneuf playing? Top pair? Top defenseman? No. 2? PP? PK?

    I expect Phaneuf to play the min for the defense. He was by far the best dmen at the camps in calgary from what I heard showing offense and his bone crunching hits. I expect him to play PK, and even strength with an offensive dmen like White or Belle.

    He should play on the PP too. He moves the puck well has a great slapshot. He and Ian White would be deadly.

    Captain: Paille for OHL
    Assistant: White for WHL (Or Phaneuf). BUt White got the edge because he is a returnee. But Phaneuf got great leadership qualities tough...
    Assistant: Talbot for QMHL..

    Burns can also got a letter but he is a long shot...

    For there is 5 candidats for 3 spot... (Paille, White, Talbot, Phaneuf, Burns)...

    But I guess Paille, White and Talbot are the winners.. for having one player from each league....

    What about Kyle Brodziak? Think he has a chance of making the team?

    Shawn Belle's easily one of the best skaters in junior hockey.

    He's not soft either, he plays a good physical game from the 2 games I saw him... Josh Gorges is good as well, but there isn't one aspect of his game that stood out... positively or negatively.

    I'll echo the thoughts of the other who answered your question.

    I think Phaneuf is going to be the man for Canada at the defensive end. He should play in every situation and has a good shot of getting a letter.

    Thanks Brock

    You think Horton or Staal will play?

    For some reason I have the feeling that Kyle Brodziak will be this year's Brooks Laich. Come out of nowhere to get first line icetime. I've watched this guy for three years now in the WHL and finally this year he is putting it all together. He was a decent younger player, but not near as highly rated as Colliton or Dawes were at that age.
