    What's the projected roster? How are your chances? How does your team compare with years previous?

    I probably forgot someone, but this is roughly the swedish team:

    Collberg - Wennberg - Possler
    Burakovsky - De La Rose - Johnson
    Nylander - Wallmark - Hedberg
    Sandberg - Sundqvist - Sörensen
    Karlsson

    Hägg - L.Bengtsson
    Kylington - Arnesson
    Djoos - Olofsson

    Dansk
    Högberg
    Johansson

    Kylington is a 97-born but he is just too good to be left out IMO. They might go with an older team this year though. Not really sure how good this team is compared to previous years, the depth is really good in this age group and there are quite a few guys playing big roles for their SHL teams already. Maybe we can add one of the Lindholms or Forsberg later on but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Great to see A.Johnson, he has put up very impressive numbers.

    My adopted junior team:
    Adam Goss (G) 18 1995-02-10 Derby, GBR 5.09 159 L 2-way
    Jordan Hedley (G) 17 1996-08-07 Walsall, GBR 6.02 179 R Junior

    Declan Balmer (D/F) 18 1995-06-09 Hull, GBR 6.00 196 L 13/14
    David Clements (D) 19 1994-09-20 Coventry, GBR 6.00 181 R
    Samuel Godfrey (D) 19 1994-02-02 Swindon, GBR 6.00 185 R 13/14
    Adam Jones (D) 17 1996-01-10 Birmingham, GBR 6.02 196 L Junior
    Craig Moore (D) 18 1995-07-24 Kirkcaldy, GBR 6.00 170 R Junior
    Daniel Rose (D/F) 19 1994-10-05 Nottingham, GBR 5.09 168 R 13/14
    Benjamin Russell (D) 19 1994-03-24 London, GBR 5.10 170 R 13/14
    Zach Sullivan (D) 19 1994-07-14 Redhill, GBR 5.09 152 R 13/14

    Ivan Antonov (F) 16 1997-05-12 Moscow, RUS 5.08 141 R Junior
    Oliver Betteridge (RW) 17 1996-01-16 Nottingham, GBR 5.10 154 R Junior
    Bobby Chamberlain (F) 18 1995-03-16 Hull, GBR 6.01 174 R 13/14
    Josh Cook (F) 19 1994-10-25 Kelowna, BC, CAN 5.11 185 L
    Jordan Cownie (F) 18 1995-08-01 Dundee, GBR 5.10 154 L 13/14
    Samuel Duggan (F) 15 1998-07-13 Reading, GBR 6.01 172 - Junior
    Lewis Hook (F) 17 1996-08-18 Peterborough, GBR 6.01 165 L Junior
    Shawn MacKie (F) 19 1994-03-11 Omeemee, ON, CAN 5.11 159 L

    Matthew Selby (F/D) 18 1995-07-19 Birmingham, GBR 6.00 192 R 2-way
    Liam Stewart (C/LW) 19 1994-09-05 London, GBR 6.01 201 L
    Ross Venus (LW) 19 1994-04-28 Solihull, GBR 6.00 165 L 13/14

    They're up against France, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine so the competition should be relatively close. Particularly interested in seeing Liam Stewart playing Div 1B as a WHL player (Spokane), also looking forward to seeing young Sam Duggan playing as a '98 in a U20 tournament. And yes this is kind of a troll because nobody would expect a post like this in here :sarcasm:

    Not sure what Team Canada will look like, but I'd love to see a Nurse-Ekblad pairing somewhere in there. Twin towers.

    Sven Ziegler
    Erik Gollenbeck

    Defensemen:
    Tim Bender
    Dominik Tiffels
    Janik Möser

    There was talk of Daniel Zaar making it, did anything change?

    For the first time Finland will be the team with biggest omissions.

    Sasha Barkov
    Olli Määttä
    and Rasmus Ristolainen will be out most likely because therye playing in NHL.

    I dont know buffalos thinking but coud be that Rasmus is sent to play for WJC.
    Aleksander Barkov has no chance going to junior championship because his busy playing in the Olympics and Florida Panthers

    He could definitely make it but the wingers in the top-6 are basically locks and Zaar is an offensive winger. He did play well in the summer tournament with the national team though.

    Same goes for Nylander, either offensive line, 13th frw or not making it.

    Santini-Grzelcyk
    DeAngelo

    Forwards (x13):

    I'd say they probably are third in players unavailable, behind USA and Canada. Trouba, Jones, Galchenyuk and Mackinnon, Rielly and Monahan.

    Add Dumba to Canada. Sweden is probably missing Lindholm x2 and Forsberg.

    Dumba at the moment is only costing wild games and im not gonna even rank him

    Määttä > Rielly > Ristolainen atm
    Barkov=Monahan>Mackinnon

    so ye finland has bigger omissions than canada..

    lindholms and forsberg better? u have to be kidding me
    elias plays less than 10 minutes per game with no production
    forsberg has 1 point in 9 games
    and hampus is best rookie from swe but far from määttä

    Barkov, Määttä > H.Lindholm > Ristolainen > Rest

    U guys might be right about usa i only have barkov ahead of gally at the moment.
    so summa summarum finland has the 2nd biggest omissions from wjc right after usa

    Barkov > Galchenyuk
    Jones, Trouba > Määttä, Ristolainen

    In terms of how'd I'd rank all 9 it would go Mackinnon, Galchenyuk, Barkov, Jones, Trouba, Monahan, Rielly, Ristolainen, Maata.

    Those things are highly debatable.

    Elias Lindholm has been dealing with injury problems and has been out for long stretches. Like Mackinnon, his team already has two established top-6 centers, unlike Calgary and Florida. H.Lindholm has played more minutes in every game than Maattas season high, and lead the league in +/- last time I checked.

    Yes every year other than lockout we hear what the team canadas etc could have been if they had the NHL players. now that finland has the best players missing it seems to be hard thing to swallow for the rest of countries.
