    It looks like it'll be this:

    Canada
    United States
    Sweden
    Slovakia

    Russia
    Finland
    Czech Republic
    Switzerland

    + the teams that are coming up (Belarus and Germany), unless they play that little 4 team tourney they were talking about.


    Canada's group looks like a *****, I think the U.S will be awesome next year (if they get most of their returning players back)

    [EDIT] 1,000 POST! woooooooooooo, finally....

    Canada will be the team to beat. They'll have plenty of returnies, and some major talents at 17 coming up. No question, Canada will be the team to watch. Don't forget: Canada was freaking young this time around.

    Swedes will be good next year, as there top guns Bergfors and Backstrom will be back. Canada will be top team followed by the States who also have a lot of guys coming back next yr. That group will be tough but a good one.

    Kessel, JJ, and EJ could all be in the NHL next year which could really hurt team USA, otherwise they would definitely have a really strong team.

    Yep, US shouldn't be as strong next year as this year. But they still will be a threat, just not a favourite.
