    Who makes this team and how many players do they name to the team?

    Anyone want to give it a shot?

    '88's- Alzner, Irving, Hamill, Marchand, Perron, James Sheppard, Jonathan Bernier, Mathieu Perreault, Ty Wishart, Claude Giroux, Francois Bouchard, Shawn Matthias, Ben Maxwell, Ryan White, Milan Lucic, James Reimer. These are some of the '88's I would assume Team Canada will be looking at.

    '89's- Turris, Cann, Gagner, Esposito, Couture, Ellerby, Katic, Negrin, Sutter, Knelsen, Doughty, Boychuk, Arniel, Schen....

    '90's- Tavares, Stamkos, Del Zotto, Sauve....

    just some names I assume they would consider.

    Steve Mason from the London Knights. Personally for a 90 birth defencemen I'd look at Pietrangelo over Del Zotto. Although I don't think you'll see any 90's outside of Tavares on the team.

    I forgot Pietrangelo. Was just throwing out some names as to who they might consider for the team.

    Will this series play all 8 games even if one team wins 5 in a row?

    This team could be dangerous...

    I think you could add a few names like Beleskey, Emmerton, MacLean, Pyett, Fadden, Santorelli, Holzapfel, etc.

    This team will probably be loaded with 1988 born players and a few 89's thrown in here and there. There are just so many players to choose from.

    the only 1990 id expect would be Tavares. Being a Generals fan I could even see Tavares not making this team the players in 1988 and 1989 will take up all of the roster id say....The only reason why I say Tavares might not make the team is because of the international surface but i hope he makes it....If him and Brett MacLean made the team thatd be a good combo since they've played with each other for two years

    I don't think so. It's too bad, cause there's another 87 born Canadian player that would do pretty well in this tourney i think.

    Suppose, '87's were allowed. Could Corsby play in this series?

    ya crosby could play if 87's were still allowed but he wouldnt take a chance of getting injured.

    I haven't heard too much about roster size and this but wouldnt the best thing for Canada to do is use this like the world junior evaluation camp and bring over 35 players or so and rotate them in and out of the lineup throughout the 8 games giving the coaches and managers and that a good look at some of the players for the upcoming juniors

    Tavares will be one of the first players picked...he's already one of the top players on any Junior roster, nevermind the fact that he's a '90.

    Why not? The tournament doesn't coincide with any NHL activity (unless you count the start of camp).

    The best eligible players should be released for this, but I doubt it happens.

    The Pens won't want to risk injury to one of their core players. If Staal hadn't play NHL hockey last year, he probably would go, but right now, he has nothing to prove at the junior level and is an important player for the Pens. They won't send him I believe.
