    Which NHL team will be best represented at the World Championships. The flyers could have 15 or 16 players, will any teams have as many or more?

    Locks
    Gagne-Canada
    Johnsson-Sweden
    Ragnarsson-Sweden
    Roenick-U.S.A.
    Amonte-U.S.A.
    Esche-U.S.A.
    Zhamnov-Russia
    Markov-Russia
    Handzus-Slovakia
    Somik-Slovakia
    Radivojevic-Slovakia
    Kapanen-Finland
    Seidenberg-Germany

    Probables
    Leclair-U.S.A.
    Malakhov-Russia
    Pitkanen-Finland

    Also I still think there's an outside chance that Primeau will end up on team Canada.

    Yet another flyer to add, Radovan Somik made the team, though I doubt he'll get much playing time.

    definitely not as well represented as the power house Philly Flyers but the Oilers have...

    Brewer – Canada
    Conklin – USA
    Dvorak – Czech Republic
    Markannen – Finland
    Nedved – Czech Republic
    Smyth – Canada
    York – USA

    Probable: Hemsky - Czech Republic

    I believe the Leafs led everyone last time around, but this time it won't be the same story. Nolan, Renberg and possibly even Riechel won't be going.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Markov make it on Russia.

    Dallas, no clear cut locks or anything, just thinking out loud..

    Finland: Lehtinen, Kapanen and Miettinen should be locks, Numminen depends on his condition at the time.

    Sweden: There's been talks that Loui Eriksson is making a very strong push to make the team.

    Russia: Valeri Bure. Sergei Zubov is now an American.

    USA: Mike Modano, Bill Guerin should be locks. Scott Young a possibility, depending on his condition at the time.

    Canada: Brenden Morrow got named yesterday. Jason Arnott and Marty Turco missed out.

    Switzerland: Tobias Stephan could be a candidate.

    Norway: Marius Holtet is likely a lock depending on his recovery.

    That's about it I guess..

    Don't know anything about this. He wasn't even the hottest candidate when the rule about three U22's was still there.

    it doesn't matter as long as he keeps his Russian citizenship

    Fedorov has been an American for 3 years ... and he even played at the Olymics!

    Scroll the Sweden board, should be mentioned in several threads if I am not mistaken. You should know better though, so I'll take your word for it. He has no shot or.. ?

    This does not make him ineligible for Russia.

    Yeah well maybe not. But he has declined every inventation so far, despite his Russian coach and teammates strongly pushing him. Would come as a shock to me if he were to accept this one.

    I don't know if Conklin will be there. I'd say he's probably fourth on the depth chart behind Esche, Dipietro and Grahame....but that's just my opinion, he could easily push Grahame.

    This is truly amazing. Also, I would not put Malakhov as a question mark. IMO he was Russia's best defenseman in the Olympics, was one of the bright spots on Rangers D :eek: (along with Leetch), and is playing great so far for Philly..

    That's what I would say too, adding Christoph Schubert who has been named to the German team, though he's an AHLer so I suppose he doesn't count.

    Volchenkov has a shot with Russia, perhaps?

    Red Wings possible representatives:

    Yzerman
    Maltby
    Draper

    Lidstrom
    Holmstrom
    Zetterberg

    Datsyuk

    Lang

    Schneider
    Chelios
    Hull

    All are locks, in my opinion with the exceptions of maybe Hull and Chelios. I think the USA could still use them, but they may want to skew younger.

    IN:

    Iginla - Canada
    Regehr - Canada
    Nilson - Sweden

    LOCKS:

    Kiprusoff - Finland
    Lydman - Finland

    MAYBE:

    Conroy - USA
    Leopold - USA (I would guess that both of these guys, mainly because of CGY's playoff run, will make it. I know Conroy has been shunned in the past, but his two-way play and speed on NA ice could really help the Americans.)
    Turek - CZE
    Nieminen - FIN

    Not bad for a team with no talent. ;)

    i don't think Turek will be on the Czech's team. Vokoun and Cechmanek are locks, and I wouldn't be surprised to see someone like Prusek as the third.

    I think Conklin is definately in the mix after playing so well in the World Championships. My guess would be it's Esche, DiPietro, and either Conklin or Dunham.
