    Cal Clutterbuck was seriously injured at the end of the regular season, so I'm not sure if his health will permit him to play. James Neal of Plymouth probably has a good shot at making the team.

    I think Dan Ryder and James Neal have pretty good shots to make the team as well. You didn't mention any goalies, but I think Real Cyr has a good chance.

    Well, you can add Ryan O'Marra and Kendall McArdle as VERY likely candidates to be named to Team Canada. Their respective clubs were both knocked out of the playoffs tonight and are now available to play.

    What happened to Clutterbuck? Do you know the extent of his injury?

    James Neal probably has an outside chance at being named to the team, only if injuries are hampering some of the other players. It seems everyday it's getting tougher for Team Canada to name a team and with guys like Brule, O'Marra and McArdle coming available today it's getting tougher. If Drummondville is ousted in the Q, Latendresse is a lock and his teammates Derick Brassard and PO Pellitier are good bets as well. Canada is really filling up quickly at the forward position with the strong 1987 birth year, even though all '87's are not available.

    I think Neal has a better shot because this is a undersized group of forwards.

    Rabbit is too old. He is a late '86 but this tournament is for '87 and younger. :)

    Well, they were undersized somewhat in the summer as well, but dominated on their way to Gold!

    Is Yellow Horn an 87? There will be no 88's on team Canada with all the good 87's

    Dan Ryder and the Peterborough Petes have advanced to the 2nd round of the OHL playoffs, thus preventing Ryder to play in the tournament. The 2nd round of the CHL playoffs won't be over in time for players to participate in the IIHF U18 tourney.

    Yellow Horn is an '87 and should get serious consideration considering the amount of points he put in Lethbridge this year. If guys like Cogliano and Bradford are unavailable, then Yellow Horn could be a perfect fit.

    McArdle is hurt and won't be on the team. The left wingers confirmed so far are Clune, Neal and Yellow Horn. If Drummondville goes out, Latendresse is in. On the right side, Setegouchi, Bertram and Clutterbuck are in. One of Lawrence or Downie, whichever one loses in Game 7, will likely be in. Brule and O'Marra are the only two centres in for sure at this point and McNeill, Parent and Bourdon are the first three defenceman at this point. If Portland loses, Mikkelson should be in. Same thing with Russell in the Hat, although he's hurt. Price will be the starter in net with either Pelletier or Mior as the backup.

    It's looking more like he could be on the team now, but there are still others. Ryan Wilson is definitely out as Toronto has advanced to the 2nd round of the OHL playoffs.

    If Portland loses Game 7 in their WHL playoff series with Everett, Mikkelson would be a sure bet for Team Canada.

    Look for Mississauga's Cody Bass to be named to the line-up. He'll be used in a checking role and as a shut down guy. Bass is also an outstanding penalty killer. Canada will surely require outstanding penalty killing to win this tournament with European officiating.

    I think this will be one of the rare cases where the world championship team is on par with the summer world cup team. Too bad about McArdle though. Is Clutterbuck in? There was some talk of an injury.

    Any TV?

    Clutterbuck is in, and yes, every Canadian game is on TSN, live I believe, including all playoff games. If Moncton beat Drummondville tonight, and I think they did, the other poster is right, Pelletier is a good bet to be Price's backup and Brassard is in the mix at centre but I think they're waiting to see who all is available there before final commitments are made. Getting Latendresse is big to go with Clune, Neal and Yellow Horn on the left side.

    Concussion I believe and I read on the Barrie site he was supposedly a possibility for tonights game and if there had been a game 7, he would have probably been in.

    Doesn't sound good though, especially being a concussion and all, although he will have about 7 - 10 days from now to rest before any ex. games or the tourney opener.
