    For the 7 hockey nations. I know Canada could have Espisito, Tavares, Turris, and Jonathan Bernier.
    USA probably NDTP alumi's
    What about Russia is there another phemon coming up?
    I know Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, and Slovakia is replacing most of their rosters. If anyone knows 1 or 2 players from those countries that could make impact next as 1st year players would be nice.

    Thanks in advance

    Mike Ratchuk for the Americans next year. It would be astonishingly dissapointing if he was left off the team next year.

    After watching his performance at this years camp, I would definetly say Drew Doughty is ready to play, he probably could have gotten on this year, but next year he'll be one of our best.

    its a longshot, but he definitely has the talent to make the team. it is a possible that they wait thought and give the oppurtunity to someone who is in their last year of eligiblity.

    How about Stamkos? Have yet to see him play myself, but his numbers are pretty impressive.

    Stamkos is an impressive player. I would put Tavares and Couture up there first though. Doughty is a good one too. As for Esposito for sure the third times a charm right? He wont get cut again I hope
