Only 2 canadian players, not including their starting goal tender, don't have points in this game right now

I wonder if that's counting the backup tender

After Sweden beating Japan 20-1 in the 90's, I feel like they needed to institute it. It's not like those kids from Japan learned anything after 13-1 or so, you know?

Even I have to admit Canada going all 14-0 on a Denmark is some super villain tier stuff. Like bad guy team in Mighty Ducks even. Canada doesn't seem to face a realistic challenge in this pool outside of Russia on the 31st I've noticed as well. Also Mikey DiPietro sounds like the name of a Sopranos character.

Sweden looked really really good. Very poised, sharp passing, great team game, excellent defensively. Finland also looked good and Lukkonen is fuckin enormous and really good, but they couldn't match Sweden's jump. USA looked not nearly as good as Sweden or Finland but hopefully they were just playing down to SVK's level and it's not an indicator of their overall ability otherwise they're in trouble against Sweden and Finland. The Hughes boys are fun though.

This is kind of all WJC's in my opinion. Guys always trying to do too much and be fancy as gently caress, often overlooking their linemates, trying to take on entire teams and overall the team structure is complete rear end.

It's amazing how much people buy into these games as a prospect evaluation tool. But it is often fun to watch them play

I should also note that i watched D2: the mighty ducks the other day and Team US were clearly the bad guys, not team Iceland. They ran up the score against Italy and Trinedad and Tobago. They should have handily won against Iceland, yet another team with no international hockey presence and an incredibly small pool of players to pull from.

They had 2 goons on their team in junior hockey, what the gently caress is that?

Can they just institute a 6 team World Junior* format already? I mean I get having more games and giving everyone a chance but what's the point?




* Also Olympics and World Championships.

Slovakia beating the US last year was pretty much the coolest thing though.

Blowouts aren't fun, but super-underdog upsets are awesome.

Can you imagine how awesome Kazakhstan beating somebody would be.

Large disagreement. The tournaments are in some ways too big, but almost every year has seen surprising results in all the levels you mentioned. Like how germany beat sweden 2018 olympics, and switzerland beat finland in wc 2018.

Also six is far too low, assuming the obvious teams it would exclude switzerland and slovakia, and there has to be room for a few teams move up and down the ranks. 10 or 12 minimum. I do agree 16 in whc is too much.

i think 10 is a pretty solid number for world juniors personally, there's a pretty consistent top 8 teams and it lets a couple smaller teams show up at the end every year. 12 might be ok in that it gives those bottom 4 teams a chance of winning a game every year, but thats about the only reason to expand it

For note I wasnt entirely serious with a suggestion of 6 but really you could probably go to 8 or 10 and still end up with heavy underdogs and somewhat eliminate dumb blowouts.

I mean I know it's great to go but if you're on Denmark and haven't scored but have been scored on 18 times I'd imagine you mostly just want this to be over and go home. Especially as a teenager.
