    Goal: Price, Ellis

    Defense: Barker, Bourdon, Pokulok, Schultz, Staal, Russell

    Forwards: Blunden, Bolland, Chipchura, Chucko, Cogliano, Downie, Latendresse, O'Marra, Setoguchi, Esposito, Pouliot, Pyatt, Toews

    There's a good mix of toughness, checking ability and scoring ability. I'd think the team lines at forward might be something like this:

    Pouliot/Bolland/Cogliano
    Setoguchi/Toews/Chucko
    Latendresse/Chipchura/Downie
    Blunden/O'Marra/Pyatt
    Esposito as the floater

    The defense might look something like this:

    Barker/Pokulok
    Staal/Russell
    Bourdon/Schultz

    That's a pretty imposing group of forwards when you really look at it. Couple with a big, mobile defense and good goaltending and there's no reason to believe we can't be the favorites of the tournament again.

    Bourdon-Letang
    Parent-Schultz
    Russell

    Latendresse-Pouliot-Cogliano
    Little-Boyd-Bolland
    Comeau-O'Marra-Setoguchi
    Downie-Chipchura-Toews
    Chucko

    It's hard to say I think, the one thing Canada lacks that the US has is that one gamebreaker (Ryan/Kessel). IMO I just don't think Canada has as good a top 2 lines as the states but I'd much rather Canada's defence and depth.

    We may lack a game breaker so to say, but I think our depth is much better than the Americans. We can put out four lines that can score and check and make life miserable for the other teams. Not too many teams can say that. The US might be able to put out to high power lines, but high power lines can be rendered ineffective by good checking and agitating, and that's where we can be dominant. We throw teams off their game and get them to take stupid penalties, we can actually be quite lethal on the power play. You park someone like Latendresse in the front and have Bourdon pound the puck from the point and we should be lethal.

    It's a shame Brule got injured because he would be that gamebreaker we need.

    A couple of people don't have Blake Comeau making the team but Ryan O'Marra there. I would be surprised if either didn't make it, but Comeau is a near lock IMO.

    Comeau should be there. He has big game experience. He has played a ton of playoffs games with Kelowna and Memorial Cup games as well. I think he would be a perfect fit on the third or fourth line.

    O'Marra I think is a very good bet at being either the third or fourth line center.

    Latendresse - Cogliano - Pouliot
    Comeau - Chipchura - Setoguchi
    Little - Boyd - Bolland
    Blunden - O'Marra - Downie

    Barker - Bourdon
    Letang - Staal
    Parent - Schultz
    Russell

    Price

    Man, I'm really worried about the Americans this year, they have a very impressive team. So here's my Team Canada U-20, I'm not sure about forwards yet, but here's defence and goalies.

    G: Price/Ellis/Dubnyk (Comes down to those 3 imo, two out of those I'll have to wait)

    D: Barker-Bourdon
    Staal- Schultz
    Parent-Rogers
    Letang

    For forwards, I don't know. The rosters people have posted so far seem pretty good.

    As for defense, Staal might not even be a lock for the top 4, not because of play though.

    I heard a person from Hockey Canada on the radio today talking about the possibility of having two pairs of D-Men that have already play together, and that they expect Bourdon to be a top 4 and a possible 1-2 punch of Barker and Bourdon. Basically he seemed to be hinting at the chance of a top four like this:

    Barker - Russell
    Bourdon - Letang

    Obviously the chances of this may be far off or whatever. I am sure the play of the defense will be more indicative then anything, still interesting though.

    I disagree, I think that this may be Little and Cogliano's coming out party. These kids are definitely game-breakers, and are both lighting fast, especially Cogliano. I think that they are really going to impress in this tourney.

    Little will be there. Im not gonna say 100%, cause you never know. But Sutter cannot afford to not take him, as they will need his offense.

    Latendresse - Brassard - Pouliot - Brassard and Latendresse play together and Pouliot played with Lats during the S.E.C.

    Towes - Cogliano - Bertram - I think all 3 of these college guys will play on a line

    Esposito -Boyd - Bolland - I just think this line makes sense.

    O'Marra - Chipchura - Blunden - O'Marra and Blunden play together in Erie amd will be a good shut - down line.

    ex. Setoguchi

    Barker - Russel - play together in M.H
    Bourdon - Letang - play together in M.H
    Staal - Parent - both are very good and seem like locks to make the team

    ex. Pokulok

    Price
    Pogge

    ex. Dubnyk

    I want Ellis to make the team and I think he should but I think he will go with 2 WHL tenders.

    Ur sure of that are u. I'm not saying he wont be but i think the who the goalies will be is very much dependant on how they play at the camp. Any 2 of the 4 could make it in my opinion.

    The job will be won in camp, whoever will demonstate the most coolness and skill. Price has been hot and he is carrying it in. He also knows a lot of the guys there.

    Latendresse-Pouliot-Cogliano
    Setoguchi-Bolland (I think he can play center?)-Comeau
    Little-Chipchura-Chucko (great checking lin if you ask me...)
    Brassard-O'Marra-Toews
    Boyd or Esposito

    Barker-Staal
    Bourdon-Letang
    Parent-Russell
    Rogers

    Price
    Ellis
    (I think that they'll go with the 2 goalies that can steal games. I don't think that Pogge or Dubnyk can do this)

    This is Kinda why i think Pogge will be the back-up, u want consistency from your back-up u dont need a guy who can steal games you need someone who wont allow the softy. I think it will be one of Price and Ellis as the starter and Pogge as the backup but as said it will be decided in camp.

    Ellis has being more consistent over his CHL career then Pogge.
