    Russia will win this event while the Swedes will be the finalists; Canada will finish fourth and I don't even have to mention who'll take third.

  6. I disagree. I dont think Russia has much of a chance at all at a gold medal this year. I dont even think they will get a bronze. IMO, the final standings will look something like this: 1. Canada 2. USA 3. Sweden 4. Finland 5. Czechs or Russians

    I have to agree that it'll be a Canada-USA final, but it could go either way. The US seems to have more big names, but Canada seems to have a lot of overall depth. And I doubt Boston won't let go of Kessel unless he's not making an impact in the NHL.

    Sweden also has a good chance of going far behind Backstrom.

    we'll have a good idea after 48 hours

    with canada opening against sweden and playing USA the next day.
    remember, first place gets a bye (doesn't have to play 4th in the q-finals).

    It has'nt been a really big concern at the juniors for some reason,we seem basically ready to go in this tournament from the get go for some reason or another.We're not at peak form but no-one usually is in their first games.

    Those are going to be two great games back to back.Can't wait.The Canada-U.S game last year was a great game,best of the tournament i thought and the two teams have close to the same guys coming back this year.Should be a dandy.

    It would be a major failure if Canada doesn't win this one.

    Major failure? I don't know, there will be some stiff competition in this tourney.

    They better not go in over confident or they'll get their asses handed to them by a good team there.

    With a victory last year and a potential like 13 returning players, yeah, it would be a failure, especially with some of the talent that should be there for us.

    Some key guys we are counting on may not be playing though,guys like Bourdon and Staal for instance.A lot of things have to fall in place before we have the team we envision competing for us.I agree we will be favourites but the U.S will have a good team,their back-end looks to be really strong and their forward core ain't too shabby either.At the very least they are one team that will give us a really good test and i would'nt be shocked to lose to them.I agree we'll have a strong club there but IMO losing would'nt be the ultimate failure you seem to think it would be.

    it would be a failure,not taking top prize always means you've failed,but a shocking failure?..........I don't think so.

    I think you are under-estimating the competition.

    Plus there's no more home ice advantage. 2005 might as well have been in Winnipeg since we were all down there :yo: and '06 was in Vancouver. Obviously that shouldn't be the deciding factor but it's a contributing one nonetheless.
