    Good opener against Russia.
    Head hunted a little much in the first and second, but played well in the third.
    The Russians were going in second by the end of it, ha, ha, ha!
    Not the familiar names as other years, IMO Team Canada will be fine!
    Special teams were quality, with 3 pp goals and some great pk!
    I'm guessing there will be a goalie change for Canada.
    Next up, Canada vs Czech Republic Tuesday at 3:30pm et on TSN/TSN.ca/TSN Mobile.

    Really impressed with two D-men so far: Justin Faulk of Team USA, and Ryan Ellis of Team Canada.

    Agreed.

    The talent in the WJC, year after year, really is impressive.

    I find that the world juniors has some of the best hockey every year. But I guess that's also why I love NCAA more than NBA and NFL. Everyone is trying to prove themselves. As for the Canadian team I was surprised at how fast they were for their size.

    I say that ever year, it's my favorite hockey next to the playoffs.
    Bigger, stronger, faster is the Canadian way!

    And the all time Gold Medal Wins!
    Since 77...USA 2, Canada 15!
    I even let the other 15 wins go as they were not part of the tournment, pre 77.
    If the USA is the new hockey power, than why don't they show up much in this tournment?
    The success they have enjoyed is spotted with big gaps in between them.
    This is not the sign of a developing hockey power past or present!
    The mention of it is always good for a laugh.

    That's true Gram!
    The years we don't win the Gold, at least we're right there!
    Consistency is also the Canadian way and the only way to considered a true hockey power.
    Hockey Canada and their U16, U17 and U18 programs make sure!
    It's good to be KING!

    The U.S. has been winning its share of gold in the under-16's, 17's, and 18's.

    Two-time defending Champ of the Under-18's, and winners of the gold four of the last six years.

    3 medals have been available at the WJC since 2000?

    Jack, one country cannot win the Gold, Silver, and Bronze in the same year at the tournament.

    2000 is 11 years ago.
    Each year there are 3 medals available, that's 33 not 30...my bad!
    Out of the 33 available and 11 being the most any 1 team can win, the USA has won 3!
    Come on man, if we're gonna do this, you have to at least know your own stats!
    I guess I've been right saying, you don't know, you don't know!
    And, just so ya' know, Canada has medaled every year since 2000 with 5 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze!
    I should be charging you for this........

    There are 4 guys who could play for the US team, playing for Canada. Way to go guys.

    When Marcus Foligno was ask why he didn't play for the USA team. He replied "because I promised my mother," That was when Nick played for USA..........Marcus is much better than Nick.......What say you Jack?
