World Junior Hockey Championship

Ah, hockey to quench the hockey thirst. Canada is the favorite to win, just look at the roster. Best team on paper hands down, now it's gotta be up to the players to win it all.

What are your thoughts, opinions, predictions?

I hope Canada wins. It's been seven years since we've won the tournament and we're due. The Canadian roster is jam-packed: Crosby, Bergeron, Getzlaf, Ladd, Phaneuf ... it's their strongest team in years. Good to see lots of WHL players on there as well. But with the NHL lockout, these guys have a lot of pressure on them as the whole country is watching them even closer then before.

Gold: Canada
Silver: United States
Bronze: Czech Republic

Game is over and Canada won 7-2 over a Mediocre slovak team. The Bergeron - Crosby - Perry line had a combined 8 points. Good way to start off the tournament if you ask me.

Sweden is usually a strong opponent and they beat Germany 6-0 yesterday. Granted, it was Germany, but it should still be good.

8-1 final. Canada outshot them something like 45-17. Sweden's not a powerhouse but they're no slouch either and it's amazing to watch Canada literally skate circles around them. There's just so much talent on that team. Better be careful not to jinx them ...

USA is starting to blow out the swiss, they let the swiss score two quick goals and then have scored three un answered goals... swiss goalie needs to be changed me thinks. So does the USA goalie now.. its 3-5 usa.. 4 -5, think i jinxxed them but montoya has let in two goals he should of easily stopped.

4-6 usa now.. too many goals in the third

8-9 goals scored in the third....And people say there is not enough scoring in hockey, HA!
SOme good talent out there, too bad it wasn't in the nets too. Most of those shots were stoppable. Except that powerplay goal short side upstairs. Man what a shot.

Montoya is one of the best goalies in the tournament IMO. Plus the rules are different than NHL so it opens up the game to much more scoring than in the NHL.

Yeah, the first goals he let in i don't think he could of done anything to stop. But the next two, were two he should of stopped, one he just looked like he wasn't awake, and the second one again looked like he was slow getting his 5 hole shut..

also is there a rule that makes 17 yearolds wear full face shields? i noticed all the 17 yearolds were wearing them.

Under international hockey rules, all players under 18 have to wear a full face mask.

Yes, did you see how the Swedish goalies stick came and hit Crosby right in the neck/chin area? If he wasn't wearing that shield... Besides Crosby is the next great one so he has to protect himself as best he can.

Finlad is suposedly going to be Canada's best competition so far. But I bet Canada will just steamroll them anyway. Go Crosby!

Don't count your chickens before they hatch... Czechs and Ruskies might have something to say about you just walking into the finals.

Same with finland on our side

Czechs have nothing special, only russia could stop it, but they will have to fight their way to the semis as the USA will get the by there as well as canada. Not that we haven't beaten russia already though.

It all boils down to who has the better team on the day the game is played. It doesn't matter who has beat who how many times in the past. The team with the desire and the heart to win on the day the game is played is all that matters.

We all remember Belarus beating Sweden at the 2002 Olympics right? This shot of Salo having the puck bounce off his head.

That reminds me of the Swedish goalie who got a slapshot off the helmet the other night. They've amended the rule so when a goalie gets hit in the mask the play is automatically stopped.

as a canucks fan i had very mixed feelings.

on one hand, it is the USA losing... on the other hand that's the Canucks draft choice in net there....

Oh, like it matters. If things keep going the way they are, we'll never see the NHL until these draftees are into their 30's.

Well, I am lucky enough that the WJC came to my school's rink and I am watching every game in person!

The USA looks absolutely horrible. They played well against the Russians, but have not been good since. That Belarus game was terrible. Neither goalie has played well and the defense is way to small.

Canada should runaway with this tournament, but the Russians may give them a run for their money.

I am really impressed with the Swiss team. They are one of those teams that I thought would suck every game like Germany, but they play well as a team and never give up. I really like watching them play.

ugh 8-0 Canada in the 3rd! This HAS to be the most dominating performance in a round robin at the international level ever.

Bring on the Semis!

The canadians are playing well, lets hope they can keep it up.


Anybody out there watching the Spengler Cup? Some decent hockey being played there. Seemed strange seeing Nash, Thornton, and St. Louis playing for Davos against the Canadians but I guess they did stick with their club teams
