    Default Wjhc

    Here is your WJHC team for 2010. http://www.tsn.ca/world_jrs/feature/?id=13609
    They made short work of Sweden last night 6-2.
    With a little luck, this championship will be their 6th in a row.
    .....Sweden didn't shake hands or take part in the Player of the Game announcement.
    And, yes....it's our game!
    For the doubters....here's the proof...http://www.tsn.ca/World_jrs/feature/?id=1264

    No doubt, there is always...well most always, one or two teams to deal with.
    Hopefully, it is tough, that's always better for the fan.
    Love this tournament!

    I enjoy watching this level of hockey more than any other.These kids can and do give meaning to the phrase 110%

    If I'm correct,no other team has accomplished 6 consecutive golds.If this is the case,this could be very exciting.

    Well....the Soviets went 7 in a row, 74' to 80'.
    That was at a time where Canada's team was the winner of the Memorial Cup from the previous year.
    I believe it was 84' when Hockey Canada and the Program of Excellence changed things.
    We still lead the way 15-14, so lets say we spotted 'em 7!
    .....since '85, the only other country to repeat are the Czechs and Russia with 2 each.
    This is our second string of 5 in a row, '93 to '97 and '05 to '09.

    Yeah, it was kinda crazy sending last years champ.
    All or most of the good players would have moved on.
    ...a championship team, a year after their championship.
    That being said, we have probably the biggest number of eligible kids in the bigs that won't be there, this year.
    Hockey Canada Rocks!

    I love our Jr. hockey team. But I don't think they are as good as last year. I really have my doubts. But I will be cheering them on.

    The teams change every year and their abilities change with that.
    Maybe not as offensive as last years, nevertheless, there is more than one way to win a hockey game.
    There are 2 sides to a puck......
    Here is a good piece from TSN, if you have been watching.

    Sorry to burst your bubble Jack but those games that made you wet your panties mean diddly squat. They are the same as preseason games where they are only fine tuning the teams.

    .....member I posted the schedule?
    Oh ....so that's what per competition means, Thanks Grumpy!
    Not quite sure what you are referring to with burst your bubble or wet your pants.
    So, what else do you think I need to know?
    Please Grumpy....enlighten me.

    Hockey is not popular in the US. Not many kids play the game at all, sadly.

    Here we go again..........
    Check the sticky pha.....you need to be schooled again?
    It's not, they don't, it's they can't...at least not like Canadians.
    You have little to no ammo to the relevance of your country in International Hockey.
    Lets keep it about the WJHC, pha........you'll get your chance to jump on the bandwagon of whatever country challenges us in Vancouver.

    Sorry but "if" the game was as big in the States as it is in Canada they would whip our butts every time, thankfully they are more interested in the summer sports such as foot ball, basketball and baseball. While I hope that Canada wins the time to start crowing should be once the tournament actually starts and we win otherwise we will end up looking like Leaf fans bragging how great we are during preseason and then disappearing into the dust left by all the actual good teams.
