    I don’t see Bylsma employed by the NHL for quite some time. He has been passed over a few times now. So his best move is to keep taking offers USA hockey offers. I could see Bylsma going the NCAA route.

    I could see Hastings getting HC position and another NCAA coach that knows these birth year players well.
    Maybe D. Cole , Mich st or S Sandelin , Minn- Duluth

    Vanbiesbrouck was named Johansson's replacement. Any thoughts about it?

    Just throwing out what I’d send to the WJC at this moment, based on who they invited.

    Tkachuk- J. Hughes- Wahlstrom
    Farabee- Poehling- Chmelevski
    Robertson- Norris- Hutsko
    Mismash- Drury- O’Brien
    Gruden

    Q. Hughes- Walsh
    Samberg- Keane
    Anderson- Regula
    Samuelsson

    Primeau
    Knight
    Keyser

    There were no glaring omissions or inclusions in my mind of the 42 players named to the World Junior Summer Showcase roster. You could make cases for or against certain players, but no grossly incompetent decisions as we've seen previously. There's enough talent to compete for gold, and anything less than a medal would be a massive disappointment.

    Notes:

    Forwards
    • Players on my list that weren't invited:
      • Cole Caufield, Tyler Madden, Blake McLaughlin, Alex Steeves, Alex Turcotte
    • Players not on my list that were invited:
      • Noah Cates, Paul Cotter, Curtis Hall, Jacob McGrew
    • I imagine some folks will take issue with Caufield/Turcotte, but they'll get their chance in December if they're dominating next year.
    • There were going to be non-NTDP USHL forwards, the question was which ones? USA went with Cates, Cotter, Drury, and Hall. Cotter and Hall were a bit surprising to me over the other options, but interested to see how they do.
    Defense
    • Players on my list that weren't invited:
      • Ty Emberson, Max Gildon, Bode Wilde, Graham Lillibridge, Spencer Stastney, Wyatt Wylie
    • Players not on my list that were invited:
      • Matt Anderson, Josh Ess, Phil Kemp, Tommy Miller
    • I was surprised by a couple omissions, most notably Emberson and Gildon. I don't think either would have been strong contenders for the team, but both deserved looks at camp.
    • Everyone will key in on Wilde, but he didn't deserve to be here. He had a rough second half of the season with the NTDP and a dreadful U18s. He has a lot of talent, but he's far too inconsistent and right now, his lows are dreadfully low.
    • I'm a bit surprised at the Anderson, Ess, Kemp, and Miller inclusions. Not any one of them individually (I fully expected Kemp here), but that all 4 are here. I think it's more a sign that the staff is pretty comfortable with their offensive, puck moving options, but the shutdown role(s) are up in the air, hence Anderson, Kemp, and Miller, whereas the staff likes Ess for his skating ability and possible untapped offensive potential.
    Goalies
    • Players on my list that weren't invited:
      • Dylan St. Cyr
    • Players not on my list that were invited:
      • Kyle Keyser
    • Right now, Primeau and Knight should be locks with Primeau on track to start. Give the other spot to the next best goalie. Not surprised that St. Cyr isn't here. Yes, he's tiny, but I think they left him home because he basically didn't play last year as Cale Morris dominated in net for Notre Dame.

    Goalies are not an issue.

    Anderson, Ess and Regula should not be there over Emberson and Wilde. Not that I think any of those would make the team next year, but I still think the latter two should definitely be at the camp.

    Gruden over Turcotte is an absolute joke. Its comical land. Turcotte should actually make the team, so not having him at the camp just doesn't make any sense.

    Kids I enjoyed watching and hoped would be given a shot were Spencer Stastney and Cole Caulfield. Both impressed me at the U18s. I know Caulfield had a great year last year too. There's always next year... right?

    Am I missing Reedy? Has he fallen off that much or have I messed something up?

    Surprised by the Bode omission.

    What happened to Adam Samuelsson? Was he never that good or has he just completely fallen off since joining the NTDP?

    I saw him at the U18 Five Nations. He seems slow - like noticeably so. Can't imagine him sniffing the World Juniors unless they want an enforcer or just some big dude.

    Skating. And he's not as good defensively as you'd expect.

    Didn't see it posted. Here are the rosters for both teams.



    Also anyone reading it, it is not lineups, seems to be by their last names.

    Seem to be two very balanced and equal teams. Is it fair to say that overall the forward group is a little stronger than the D core?

    White looks a little stronger. Hughes brothers, Wahlstrom, Farabee and O'Brien is a strong group.

    I'm planning on making it to Kamloops for the showcase. If i have to pick between those two teams which one do you think will be the better option?
