    just wondering who everyone thinks will be the four canadian centers at the upcoming WJC

    my guess is

    Huburdeau
    Strome
    Schefeile
    McNeil

    are there any from the 2010 draft that are not likely to make their NHL club and are in the running for a wj spot?

    Possibly Ryan Johansen which would definatley bump McNeil out of there.

    I would bet on RyJo playing on the BJ's this year. I don't agree with it, but I bet it happens.

    If they're not on their NHL teams, some combination of: RNH, Couturier, Johansen, Huberdeau, Strome
     
  8. My guess as well.

    I don't see Huberdeau playing center if he's avaiable. Much better suited to play the wing.

    Strome, Schiefele, Couturier and McKegg.

    McNeill isnt at the summer camp...doesnt mean he wont make it in dec but right now hockey canada has others ahead of him

    Best case scenario for Team Canada:

    Johansen
    Nugent-Hopkins
    Couturier
    Scheifele

    more likely scenario:

    Strome
    Couturier
    Scheifele
    Bournival

    A lot of dynamic centers available this year, even if some are lost to the NHL.

    As a Habs fan, I was hoping that teams in the 10-16 range would pass over Schiefele so the Habs could get a great centreman prospect. Unfortunately, the 10-16 teams didn't even have a shot at him.

    Does McNeill have a decent shot of making the roster? He's built solid for a checking role.

    He wasn't invited to the summer development camp, but with a solid start to the season, maybe he'll get an invite to the winter one.

    RNH
    Couturier
    Scheifele

    Neither Hubey or Strome is going to be the 4th line center, it is a waste of their talents and they're not suited to playing the 4th line center role. They'll play wing if they make it.

    I'm excited to see what Scheifele can do with talented linemates.

    Supposedly he didn't have much support in Barrie.

    He'll most likely play wing like he did last year.

    Many people forgetting Schwartz due to the shiny new prospect syndrome. He's going to be a key cog for this team.

    If Johansen is not in CLB he will be the no 1 center, likely playing with Schwartz.

    If hes in CLB itl prolly be Ryan Nugent Hopkins. Schiefle looks like hes in the edge to get a bottom 6 spot, though it could easily be taken by older guys like Bournival etc.

    I expect Huberdeau to be a winger, as could Strome
