    i think toews will be playing in the NHL next year so he will probably decline his invite
     
  3. Sanguinetti is American.

    You forgot Brad Marchand. And unless he's in the NHL, James Sheppard wil be on that team, too.

    you dont know who Maxwell and White are, oh man that aint good, Ryan White this year had 89 points in 72 games and almost 100 PIM, probably led his team in FM as well, he is great player to watch he battles all the time, stands in front of the net, and can shoot the puck very well, and in the playoffs he had 14 points in 18 games. He is a good leader and would be like a Brad Marchand was last year IMO. Ben Maxwell would be a stretch to make the team or even get an invite, if it werent for injuries this year he would have put up great numbers instead he played 39 games and had 53 points, 19 goals 34 assists. I dont see him making the team so wont get in to any depth about him. Both are great WHL Players, WHL produces some of if not the best players in the World.

    I really like Pierro-Zabotel but at this point he's not on the level of those players.


    Also what is the cutoff date for age for this tournament?

    Claude Giroux should have a VERY good chance to make the team.

    Emmerton and Maclean will almost certainly not be on the team, atleast i'd have to think so.

    Two way play and mobility are basically musts for this team. Maclean won't be able to keep up on big ice, and Emmerton is almost as one dimensional as it gets. There will be 10 or 11 other players who can do exactly what Emmerton does, and not being a defensive liability while they're at it. its not "fill the team up with the 13 forwards with the most points"

    Personally I think it would be..

    Sam Gagner
    Brad Marchand
    Logan Couture
    Claude Giroux
    Ryan White
    John Tavares
    Kyle Turris
    Steve Stamkos
    James Sheppard

    its insanely difficult predicting who they go with for depth, but i'd go with this

    Milan Lucic
    Stefan Legein
    Dana Tyrell
    Olivier Fortier

    If Fuller makes the team I will eat my fist. Fuller doesn't have the skill to make the team. Lucic would be a lot better pick than him and even I can't see him making the team.

    - Where's Marchand???
    - Toews should by in the NHL... not sure he will participate at U20.
    - Little is a late-87... too old
    - Claude Giroux, Ryan White, James Sheppard and Ben Maxwell should be there before Esposito, Couture and Turris
    - No MacLean, Pierro-Zabotel and Fuller there...
    - François Bouchard, Mathieu Perreault, Riley Holzapfel, Shawn Matthias, Jamie McGinn and Zach Boychuk could be there...

    - Where's Doughty???
    - Sanguinetti is an American... :teach:
    - Katic and Hickey could be there...

    Lucic is ahead of Ryan White in my opinion, he is much better allaround player. Think James Neal.
