I know, but they're the only ones listed thus far. :lol: What can a guy do?

I'll post up actual ones when they come out, but for now this is a good measurement as long as you take out the underagers and overagers.

I would suggest just making a note of it in the OP is all or people would freak out thinking Granlund was left off the Finn roster like in the thread in the Flames section.

Surprised you left out Hampus Lindholm from the Swedish D? I also wouldn't be surprised to see Robert Hagg in their bottom 6.

Crzydrvr.. a little request...

In those lineups you posted up there, could you go thru and highlight the flames property in red? I think it could be neat to see if there are couple of players you project to be there...

With all the hype coming out of Anaheim, I'm assuming Lindholm will be there for the year and will not be made available to the team. Obviously if he goes back to Sweden he's all but a lock for a top 4 role, probably knocking off Djoos from the roster.

Our prospect pool is really getting underrated IMO. Even in my predicted rosters (which contain its fair share of bias) the Flames have 5 players, tied with Edmonton for most among Canadian teams.

Watching the Canada - Russia games, I really thought that Huberdeau and Scheifele carried the Candaian forwrads and after that, it got a bit thin down the middle. Huberdeau seems like a lock for the NHL (assuming it's on) and I think Scheifele will stick with the Jets.

If so, I think Jankowski has the opportunity get a serious look in December, if he gets off to a good start in Providence. That would be awesome, needless to say.

I agree, a hot start is going to put Jankowski on the radar. I actually thought even at last year's World Juniors the center depth was a bit thin, certainly they lacked the big time center they've had for the last several World Juniors. It's also not out of the question that Schiefelle could make the Jets.

Getting my WJC rosters together as the day of the tournament draws ever near....not including NHL players since I'm half-hoping that they won't be getting a chance to play. If you get my drift. However, it does include guys who are playing in juniors or the AHL, but only the ones who I'd think would spend their year outside the NHL and/or be available for the WJCs.

Very strong team. You don't see Elias Lindholm making the team? I could see them putting him on the wing even though he's a C. I doubt Emil Molin makes the team. Very inconsistent/one dimensional player.

I could even see Lindholm taking William Karlsson's spot. It's all speculation at this point... just thought I'd contribute a little to the conversation.

I think, looking back on it, I'd probably swap out Molin for Lindholm, move Lindholm to center and shift Rask or Karlsson to the wing. It really just slipped my mind :lol:. I can't even use the excuse that they'd go with experience, because the Swedes took 3 underagers last tournament (although Aberg was taken out with an injury during pre-tourney exhibitions) and they're pretty good at going with the best available player regardless of age.

Something I wish Canada would do more of.

I think we will see MacKinnon, but not so sure about Drouin? Monahan? etc...

Drouin probably won't even get a fair shot, regardless of what everyone thinks, and that IMO is probably a smarter thing to do; Drouin is not ready just yet. Monahan IMO has a better shot than MacKinnon of cracking the U20 roster, because he's a third year player who plays the type of game that TC brass loves on their roster; real solid solid two-way player and has some offensive skills to boot. Very versatile guy in that he can play anywhere in the lineup, 1st line scorer all the way to 4th line shutdown guy, whereas MacKinnon is probably more of a pure scorer in a short tournament like this.

Monahan should be a lock, Pulock and Mac should get some long looks, and Drouin and Shinkaruk might get a swing as well. But that's probably all the draft-eligible skaters who'd get a shake. Unless TC really decides to swing the other way, but I personally don't see Prendergast being able to do that (he IS a former Oilers scout after all :P).

Canada is blessed with a lot of depth and talent, so we don't necessarily HAVE to go for the uber 18 year old like a Sweden or a Finland might. But I agree with the sentiment that TC needs at least 1 impact gamebreaker. Depth is great, but you need that guy who can take a game over during key phases of the game. And Canada has not had a guy like that since Eberle. I don't see Huberdeau or Scheifele or Strome as the kind of players that can necessarily dominate in the WJCs so I think MacKinnon NEEDS to be on that team if Canada wants to redeem itself.

Nuge will be Canada's #1 centre and Yakupov Russia's 1st right winger if lockout continues.

Thanks for enlightening us all with the obvious.

_____________________

Crzydrvr: Do you see Artturi Lehkonen making the Finnish team? I know he's very young, but I can't see him being left off with his dominant play in the SM-liiga.

This is definitely a strong year for Finnish prospects in the 1st round.
