    I wonder if that's the new measurement taken on Kane, perhaps from the combine... if so, it looks like he may have added an inch or so. Looks like a pretty good list of players. They are looking for some more intangibles IMO with having Strait on that list and not a Carl Sneep who has a bit more size and skill.

    I'm not that familiar with T.J. Galiardi's background (besides having a good year at Dartmouth). Does he have an American parent?

    Very interesting to see. Thanks.

    This a minor quibble, but will USA Hockey ever switch to using good old HTML to display their stats and rosters?

    So '88 are the cut-off this year so does that mean no '88 can try-out for the '09 team? Just wondering if someone like Nick Bonino has a strong year at BU, could he get a tryout next year - similar to Ben Smith, TJ Galiardi, Doug Rogers, Tony Romano, etc.

    Yes no '88's for the '09 team. Think of the wjc's in birth years. last years wjc's '07-'87. Meaning no player born in '86 could play in the tournament. '08-'88 meaning no player born in '87 can play in the next wjc. '09-'89 meaning no player in '88 can play. '10-'90... etc...

    No Tommy Cross either, I see...

    If this team struggles, I think the selection committee might be heavily scrutinized for their choices, as there are some seemingly excellent candidates (Hayes, Petrecki, O'Brien, Wahl) not on the list. Good to see that they did include Schroeder and Wilson as candidates, I'd like to see if they can keep up with the older guys.

    most of these guys are fillers...............theres 5 players from the worst major conference in ncaa hockey, the only legit one is tony romano.


    the defense will be good. even if they dont pick the right guys, they still cant screw it up too much with what they have to choose from.

    Jeff Petry, DOB 9 Dec 1987; therefore not eligible for the 2007-08 World U-20 Championships.

    Yeah, I'm kind of surprised by some of the choices at forward, although if all of the eligible returnees are able to play, it might not be a big deal. I can see the following as shoo-ins:

    Okposo
    Mueller
    Kane
    vanRiemsdyk
    Geoffrion
    Sweatt
    Carman

    USA Hockey was told one of two things:

    1) Don't bother, Johnson will be with the Blues all year and won't be released.

    2) Johnson is still a possibility for the WJC team, but will be involved in Blues related training throughout the summer so don't expect him at the camp.

    If Kane has actually put on that much weight i think he will be taken first. Looking at him in his interviews after the combine there is still a fair bit of filling out to do as well. Shows he's been working hard to improve his strength/size and coaches always love to see a guy who is working hard to be in top condition. It is also not impossible that he could gain an extra inch in height over the next year or two. He could end up being a decently sized played for the new NHL.

    Kane was noted for being very fit and defined at the Combine. He'll never be very big, but I don't see his size or strength being an issue at the NHL level.
