I didn't see a thread for this years tournament, so I thought I'd make one for all WJ talk.

 

So far Canada beat Germany 6-2. Mantha had the Hattie and Patterson got the win in goal.

 

Right now USA is up 2-0 on Czech Republic. I am intrigued by Hudson Fasching, whom I hoped the Wings would have snagged up, but they didn't take him. Instead opted for Pope. Also Steve Santini who the Wingd missed out on.

 

Always routing for USA, but will be fun watching all our prospects and future NHL stars!

USA up 2 after 1 over the Czech's. Decent game so far. 

 

Missed Mantha's hat trick dammit.

Until today, I did not know that Anthony Mantha is Andre Pronovost's grandson.

I know it only makes sense to not get too excited about Mantha. But, really, could he more promising as a 19-year-old? Like, I get the knocks on his D and compete. It's all valid, all true. (Though I don't think he should've been considered a "bubble boy" candidate for this Juniors team.) But, at the same time, he's a 19-year-old goal-scoring machine, with a massive frame he's probably not even close to fully understanding. D and compete can be taught, instilled. Natural scoring ability and size, not so much.

That defenseman for the Czech's that just scored against us is drafted by the Red Wings? I missed his name.

Not 11 rip or Canada's performance but a good all around game and win by Team USA today.

Pretty balanced scoring by USA today, 14 different players with 1 point each.  Unfortunately I missed the game.  USA/Canada on New Years Eve day should be a great one!

Alum games are scheduled between 12-5.  Looks like the WJC game is 10:30am/7:30am.

I will admit the compete part of Mantha's game scares me, but he can score.  I guess I feel similar in that if he has a couple years with the Wings he will have that level instilled in him.  I really want him to be a key on this team for years, so I hope he gets a lot of time just talking to Hank and Pav before they are gone.
