    11. Rob Brown CAN 6+2
    12. Theo Fleury CAN 6+2
    ? Teppo Numminen FIN 5+2

    Robert Reichel (born June 24 1971) was 16! Eric Lindros had 4+0 when he was 16. Sidney Crosby had 2+3 (6 games) when he was 16.

    Rob Brown dominated without Lemieux. ;)

    I remember 1990 WJC, Reichel-Holik-Jagr dominated. I think it's best WJC line ever. Even better than Mogilny- Fedorov-Bure.

    1993 Sweden had great line Näslund-Forsberg-Sundström. Forsberg had 31 points (WJC record).

    If I remember correctly, Reichel and Holik were the 2 getting all the publicity beforehand. Things changed a bit ehh .

    They did, however, have the luxury of beating up on Japan 20-1. A lot of their points came in that game. (For those who want to expand the WJC to 12 teams, the 1993 Japanese squad is reason No. 1 not to do it. You'll have a team that bad at the tournament almost every year).

    The one thing that wasn't mentioned about the 88 tournament was the performance of Jimmy Waite. The 87 Punch-up at Piestany between Canada and the Soviets gave the WJC a big profile boost in Canada. Waite stole the show in the Canada-USSR game. I think he stopped 38 of 40 shots. Canada won the game and the tournament.

    Canada won 3-2 vs. Soviets. Canada won 6 games and tie vs. Finland 4-4. Poland won only one game vs. USA 4-3. Sweden won Poland 13-0 and Czechoslovakia won USA 11-1. USA and West-Germany won only one game too. Poland relegated, because of goal differential.

    All-star team:

    Petr Hrbek TCH (4+4)-Theo Fleury CAN-Alex Mogilny SU

    Teppo Numminen FIN-Greg Hawgood CAN (1+8)

    Jimmy Waite CAN

    Romania was better than Switzerland!! Both Norway and Romania had 10 points. Romania almost promoted to A pool!! Where is Romania now?

    Chicago expected him to be better long term than Hasek.
