When do the final rosters get announced and where can i view them?
Are the rosters complete or can the teams still chose some extra players?
Every team can name 23 players, right?
Yes, Canada has named 17 per the website's official roster, but that doesn't have Shanahan or Seabrook on it, yet.
Correct, the IHWC roster lists 17 and does not list the 4 most recent Canadian players added to the team - Pettinger, Shanahan, Seabrook or Cammalleri.
The hockeycanada.ca roster lists 21 players: 2 goalies, 6 defensemen and 13 forwards.
So 2 open roster spots if 23 is still the full roster allowed.
Pettinger...wow. Didn't they find any better player that wants to play the WC?
no andrei kostitsyn for belarus? thats a shocker...same with zakharov, hes not there either....belarus is making mistakes by not putting these guyhs on the team
is crosby the next one??
i actually kind of laughed at that article. find it funny when they mention how they said the same thing about so many other players.
also why isnt boris valabik playing for slovakia.. wouldnt this be a great time for him to test him out again good players?
Cause are coach doesnt know anything about what he does? :
He sucks . He could have taken Sekera, who won the OHL best D Award (I dont know if his OHL team aint in the playoffs though). He took Vydareny for the 05 WC's over Meszaros.
All teams can add 2 players after the first 3 games. Which would bring the roster to 22 + 3 goalies.
But KOSTITSYN is on the roster here
Why is StÃ©phane Robidas (Canada) listed as a Frankfurt Lion and not a Dallas Star?
Very disapointing when I watch the rosters. Sweden for example could have nearly all their stars at this tournament, but I see only Zetterberg, Samuelsson and Kronwall. Whats about Sundin, Forsberg, HolmstrÃ¶m, LidstrÃ¶m, NorstrÃ¶m, Sedin Twins, Salo, BÃ¤ckman? Yes, they already have th eplympic gold medal, but the WC is a big tournament, too. Here you can see the real attitude from the players! I guess you can't earn enough money at such a tournament. They want to rest is no reason, they would have plenty time after the tournament and if they had come into the stanleycup finals, the season would have been even longer.
Or what's about Kiprusoff? Finland has actually the best Goalie in the world, but he doesn't want to play for them. Perhaps Finland would had won the gold medal in Torino with him. And now, he doesn't play again for his country. Why is he ******** on Finland? Doesn't the finnish people already hate him?
If in soccer a player doesn't want to play for his country he get banned!
Soccer/football national teams have more players to pick from so they can be a little harder and UEFA and FIFA have more to say then what IIHF have. And the Swedes you named are injured or just to disapointed that they are out of the Stanley Cup that they could not motivate them self for this tournament. I would also have loved to see them but I rather have hungry players with less skill then skilled players with no hunger. They are not machines.
Finland wouldn't have won gold with Kipper because NiittymÃ¤ki played in the form of his life and it wasn't his fault to lose against Sweden.
Kiprusoff woudn't have been better than Niitty.
Russia has 24 players on their roster...Just wonder, thought every team can only name 23 plyers.
Again : teams can add two players after the first round.
Russia added Misharin and Mozyakin.
