I’m not giving up on Cossa yet. Both goalies have been killing it in the Dub this year. But I don’t think it’s blasphemy to say Canada’s less than stellar goaltending the last 20 or 25 years has cost them a handful of gold medals. I guess it gives the other teams hope, because we are usually head and shoulders better throughout the lineup.

Owen Power is a real nice player. Moves well for a big kid. Sees the ice so well.

Someone mentioned Michkov was under contract with his KHL team until 2026 during the WJC coverage on TSN.

I think that just might bump him down a few spots because a bottom feeder team usually doesn't want to wait three years (2023-2026) to sign a high first round pick.

Is Shane Wright the next Lafrenierre, Byfield, Nolan Patrick? What’s wrong with him this year?

I guess that’s why he’s playing a top 6 role.

You’re talking to a guy that hates Canadian prospects, especially kids from BC.

You do realize he’s not playing up to these grandiose expectations we all have of him do you? He’s not having a stellar year in the O and is struggling to find “that” game of his at this years WJC. I hope it’s just a funk

They’ve played 1 game in the tournament.

But I understand if him failing is a massive feather in your cap. You’ve been wrong so many times. :lol:

To be honest I think Fantilli will go 2nd overall after Michkov

You don’t cheer for Canada. Never have. Be honest about something ffs. :lol: Even in 02 and 2010 at Central you were all in on the US. Own it. :)

Even though he’s a miserable drunk like Doyle, Bob Murray has done a spectacular job rebuilding the Ducks. Comtios has been injured all year, drafted from the 2017 class (same class as Vilardi) is looking like a massive steal. What’s wrong with Rob “Jack Gordon” Blake?

As I thought. He ran like a scared rat in 02 and 2010 and tried to climb back on the Hockey Canada bandwagon after they won. Pretty sure a similar result will be upcoming. The best was his weird trashing of Bowen Byram a couple years ago the the TOI stats were pointed out and he ran for a rat hole. :lol:
