Glad to see him survive the first cut but I honestly havent heard what his chances of making the team. Anyone have any insight?

Shehan's line stood out according to bob mckenzie, good to hear.

Btw was Helm the last wings prospect to play for team canada in the world juniors?

Sheahan is fighting for the last Center position with 3 other guys...

the locks at center are

1.Schenn
2.Johansen
3.Couturier
4.up for grabs between Sheahan Pirri RNH and Cizikas (hopefully Sheahan)

anything is possible I guess...but the wing positions are still wide open and pretty much anyone can still claim one as of right now...

either way I really hope he makes the team

and yes Helm was the last Wings prospect to play in the WJ for Canada...

although Shawn Matthias played in 2008 but had been traded to Florida in the Bertuzzi trade of 2007.

I would think that his size would be an advantage in the NA rink but I guess we'll see.

I believe Logan Pyett was out last prospect to play for team Canada at the WJC. I could be wrong though.

:thumbup:

Cameron wants big, defensive minded centers he said in an interview, that helps Sheahans chances. He's also got some points through camp and his line has been standing out apparently. He caused a turn over that led directly to a goal as well.

Mackenzie pretty much said he is the best defensive center, which could give him a big edge because maybe they'll want to send a 4th line shut down type line and he would be the guy for that.

Its also looking like Foligno will make it as the 4th line bruiser type, and he and Sheahan have shown to have great chemistry with one another. He's having a good camp, a strong game tonight should give him the edge, I haven't heard anything about Pirri and I know team canada doesn't like sending many underagers.

With Courturier I doubt they will wanna send 2 underage centerman to the tourney. Sheahan has also been killing penalties at the camp.

RNH doesn't fit the mold of what Cameron said he wants in his centerman and from the sounds of it Sheahan has been outplaying Cizikas and Pirri. I like his chances.

Oh and also, there is a 13th forward spot as well that could go to an offensive specialist like RNH or defensive specialist like Sheahan, and Cameron said some centerman may go to wing because they are so strong at center

Its hard to find stats but apparently word on the street is that Sheahan scored tonight in the final try out game. Final cuts to be made wednesday morning.

His camp really helped his status in my books. He had 3 points in 3 games while playing with Hamilton and Foligno. If this line makes team Canada they will be the 4th line bruiser types.

Everyone that is doubting Sheahans offense... He came and played against the best Canadians and had 3 points in 3 games in a grinding/PK role. maybe the NCAA has more of an effect on his play then some think.

Bon Mackenzie was very impressed

Sheahan has been playing with Foligno and Hamilton until tonight and they have been producing. Courturier on the wing could also mean they are thinking of moving him there for the tourney which helps Sheahans chances.

He's been playing well and has chemistry with a few guys who should make the team. His chances got a lot better after tonight with Courturier moving over

If he continues to impress, then he should nail down the 4th line a 1st PK spot. And then all of the doubters and haters will finally STFU.

Yeah I'm thinking the Canada 4th line will be Hamilton Sheahan Foligno and Courturier will actually play the wing on a scoring line but they just wanted to test him out tonight. Thats if he even plays wing.

Also Cizikas is sitting out tonight because he is injured so that could also help Sheahan.

Konnan you seem like a big Sheahan fan and I definitely am so we can hopefully tell them haters to stfu together

Agreed.

With Sheahan being one of the best forward again tonight (1+2), there is no doubt in my mind he makes the team. He's dominating these kids his age and being allowed to play offense. Hopefully his coach at ND is taking note.

I see him as 2nd line center and first PK unit at the WJC.
