Just wondering what players from this years team are eligible?
Couturier for sure
Couturier, Connolly, Gudbranson Howden, Johanson, Visentin and Schwartz.
They will be up 7-0 in the gold medal game against Denmark and lose 9-7.
Which would be more surprising? Losing the enormous lead to the Danes? or the Danes making the gold medal game in the first place?
How about Olsen?
Who will be their goalies?
I'm kinda worried about it.
Most of'em will be in the NHL.
Hopefully we get a goalie that can make the big save
I would say it's a good possibility for Gudbranson, Couturier, Johansen and Connolly.
Also, here's a list of eligible players that were invited to the evaluation camp but didn't make the team:
Canada's 2012 WJC Roster
What would you like for it to look like?
Mine would look like this.
Jayden Schwartz - Sean Couturier - Brett Connolly(If he doesn't play in NHL)
Tyler Toffoli - Ryan Johansen(If he doesn't play in NHL)- Ty Rattie
Lucas Lessio - Nugent-Hopkins - Zack Phillips
Matt Puempel - Jordan Weal - Brendan Gallagher
Ryan Murphy - Erik Gudbranson
David Musil - Duncan Siemens
Jesse Forsberg - Brandon Gormley
Just looking at this team, it has much more skill than last years and why in the world did Weal, RNH & Toffoli not make Canada's team this year?
Hishon won't be eligible to play in the tournament next year.
honestly, if the danes somehow make the gold medal game i will hope they win. That would be an amazing story for the growth of the game.
@above, are you sure musil plays for canada? I thought he would play for the czechs.
I doubt there's many returning players next year at all.
Is Toffoli available for next year?
I have no idea how he didn't make the team
Yes he is.
I hope he makes it next year.
Good we need a guy that wants to shoot
i think david musil will play for the czechs?....
Odds are Gudbranson will be in the NHL, considering a contract was the reason he didn't this year.
Puempel-RNH-x (Wouldn't be surprised to see RNH on a wing in the top 6.)
Not bad for a core, this is of course if Couturier isn't playing in the NHL, along with Johansen, Connolly, Gormley.
I am about 90 percent sure the Yotes will want Gormley to be back in Junior next year considering his injury. Shoulda made it this year. Great defeneman is great.
