Now with 300% better rosters than the Olympics

The tournament is in Denmark! The US beat Canada in the first game! Yeah! 5-4 in the shootout: https://www.new-iihf.com/en/events/...2281/tight-game

The Canadian roster would be the best roster in the NHL by a long shot. Sweden and the US look good too! Yeah!

Andersson is real good at creating chances down low (hashmarks to the net). Gonna be interesting to see how he can develop that in the NHL cuz that'll be a big factor into how good he is

Also Adrian Kempe over handles the puck a lot. Dunno if he does that at the NHL level but in this tourny he's constantly trying to stick handle through everyone and often failing

Got around to watching the US vs Canada match. Kinkaid had himself a heck of a game, Gaudreau and Kane on a line is a lot of fun, and Neal Pionk actually looked pretty solid out there.

Sebastian Aho now has 4 goals and 6 assists after two games Granted it was against S Korea and Latvia but he and Teräväinen have been amazing.

I find it hard to believe that they were actually born and raised in the land of the missed scoring chance

Picking up Hansen and Boedker was pretty huge for them. They're saving a spot for Ehlers it looks like if Winnipeg goes down.

McAvoy got added to the US team. That's pretty big for what is a fairly sketchy defense. They just barely beat Latvia today but lead the group. I think they have one more roster spot and my guess would be it will go to like Guentzel or Connor if the Jets lose.

Pastrnak/Krejci got added to the Czechs and Vlasic got added to Canada.

I think it’d probably be Wheeler. He might pass cause he seems like the type that would be crushed by a game 7 loss, but he’s usually all patriotic and poo poo so who knows

It'd be cool if he went although generally with Americans you don't see veterans coming this late in the tournament (or at all really lol). I'd take any of those guys. Didn't Wheeler play a little center with Scheifele out this year? They need another center badly.

Also the Czechs beat Russia in OT today. Pastrnak scored the winner

Dalton is playing pretty well.

the US ended up adding Bonino with their last spot. Makes sense I guess, they needed a center.

to be honest for some reason I just don't like the US roster. Like, the individual players. Very few guys that I feel like I want to cheer for

I always kinda wonder what it's like for division teams who manage to pop their heads up for a year. You play your hearts out to get there and then some giant dudes the Canadian government grows in vats just roll over you effortlessly.

Next year the UK will be giving it a shot.

Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment.


Not the best period for Sweden with some sloppy play all around but I’ll take 2-1 for now.
