World Juniors 2017-2018

Didn't see a thread for this, but the prelim games start on Tuesday.

Five Duluth players made the squad and the kid that can't do pull ups scored against Sweden the other day.  And the goalies are all hockey east guys. 

How Mismash is not on this team to give them some grit is beyond me.

I think Canada wins gold this year, which hopefully jinxes their chances.....

I watched US vs SWE on net yesterday, good game.  During first intermission, the announcers didn't shut off their mikes and were discussing Motzko's name being Russian and how to pronounce it.

Canada is always considered the "favorite". Of course, there is so much young talent in this tournament, it is almost impossible to predict who will win.

Terrible that Mismash wasn’t even on the prelim team.  Und needs to start getting kids in the tourney, huge for recruiting.

So is Motzko being the coach mean that UND players may not get a fair shake?  How involved is he in choosing the team?

 

It's that darn Potulney.....:lol:

I think a GM is involved in the selection process that has the final say.  Can't remember the guys name.  Maybe Johansson or something like that.

So UMD has five of the best Under 20 players in the country?  Really?  FIVE?  

If Miska would have came back Duluth would be doing better then they are.

At least he isn't saying "Go Canada Go".

Blackheart would be one immigrant that Trudeau would say "no thanks" to.  :lol:

I just don't agree. I'm definitely not enthralled with Dylan Sandberg. Whatever, I guess.
