    Honestly, sounds like a Finn through and through. As a Canadian fan, I still hope he plays for you guys. He's a product of your system.

    Villeneuve super underrated early on this season. Less offensive upside but superior defenceman to Poirier imo. First like minded post i've seen. plays the game easy and doesn't make a lot of mistakes.

    Good point, He'll definetly be a guy to watch for a spot next year. As of now, guys like Barron and Schneider have the inside track at a spot since they're 01's as opposed to Villeneuve who is an 02.

    In the WJC Finland thread a poster said he will play for whoever calls him first.

    I don’t think they’re doing it for kicks. He must have some desire.

    He was called for Finnish U18 team in Hlinka and Brad said that will confirm he will play fror Finland in the future. So this all is just speculation, his own words point to him staying in the Finnish nati0nal teams tbh.

    First U18 call, that is what team he will play for. Finns were first. Only reason there is talk about hit because he isn't "officially" locked yet, but he will be at the U18's.

    That defence better be big. Barron, Schneider, Byram, Korzcak, Robertson were all on the Hlinka team in Edmonton. O'Rourke, Drysdale, Guhle can fit on the team too.

    The '01s are so good that it's hard to tell who could be in the NHL. Times are changing, you don't have to be a top 5 pick to play in the NHL before 19 and 20 years old. Regardless, the group should be a fun team to watch on normal ice.

    Like that defence. The righties should be locked in as that. I'm sure all the camp invites this year who are cut are a head up on everybody else. You got that right with Zary, Holloway, Barron, Harley, Krebs, and Pelletier. Not sure who else I am missing.

    I’ve got a much bigger list of potential candidates, which I’m sure will change between now and the end of the season but as of right now, this is the list of players I’d invite to my “Summer Camp”... I’m going to run on the assumption that everyone outside of Lafreniere will be back because right now, he’s the only guy I can definitively say won’t be available. I can make arguments both ways on everyone else.

    Been a while since goaltending was this far up in the air. We knew Hart would be on the two teams he made before the season started, we knew DiPietro would make it last year, and at the very least we knew Rodrigue would have a spot on this years team. Is there that same level of confidence with any goalies this year? You can guess that Hockey Canada has their eyes on Gauthier/Garand at least but you can throw out a whole host of names and all of them having the same chance as the other names. Scary and intriguing.

    I do not see in your versions of the composition of the best forward of WHL Adam Beckman. I doubt that he will break through in the NHL next season. Although it all depends on who will be the new coach. Budro youth does not give chances.

    Looks like we’re gonna be really deep. Would be nice to see Canada be the first country to go back to back at this tournament since Canada did it back in 2008 & 2009 :yo:

    We'll have a decent shot at it even missing +- 5-6 guys to the NHL, but not prohibitive favorites. The NHL parity sickness has infected all hockey everywhere. The difference between gold and 4th. place now is a bit of luck and good timing.

    but man, would I love to see returning as #1 pair D Byram-Drysdale. would be hands down the best D pair at the tournament.

    and besides, a Russian sports writer has already guaranteed a Russian gold medal. He's on a hot streak currently of 0 for 9. you'd figure eventually he has to get one right.

    Looks pretty good, in all but one way...

    I cannot imagine any world in which Power is selected over Robertson and Clarke, even as a fan of him.

    Clarke doesn’t have an easy road to this team, there’s too many other RHS D that are better than him at this point. His NHL potential may be higher but he’s fighting an uproad battle to make this team at 17.

    As far as Robertson goes, he’s got a real good shot at making the team. This isn’t though the team I’m projecting them to take but instead the one I would take. Robertson isn’t even the next LHS up for me and there’s a RHS I’d take over him as well. We’re a long way out from this tournament and if this year is any indication, the “locks” at the end of the last tournament aren’t necessarily the ones that will be there when it actually roles around.

    I’m banking on the progression/potential of these guys and their development over the next 12 months.

    I sure hope Drysdale is there, he is going to be a real good pro but he is a guy I think would benefit from one more year of physical development before taking his first shifts in the N.H.L but you know teams these days, they just have to get their highly touted picks into the league ASAP.

    I am glad Hockey Canada is pursuing Lambert. Hoping he does have the desire to play for Canada. Many players over the years have changed their
    mind about what country to play for. Logan Brown is a perfect example. He wanted to play for Canada, but got cut from the Ivan Hlinka team, and
    switched back to USA in 2016. Hoping they can convince Lambert to play for Team Canada.

    Lambert is very clearly a product of Finnish hockey development. It's somewhat embarrassing that Hockey Canada is pursuing him and it would be worse if he ended up playing for Canada. He's a Finnish hockey player and should play for Finland.
