    Something to note is that this roster is sorted alphabetically. I remember everyone being upset last year because Poehling was on the 4th

    Anyone knows if the 4 year ban of Russian athletes will have any bearing on the the juniors WC?

    Surprised Turcotts is on the 4th line myself. Worse than Poehling.

    He was busy dominating the NHL last year. Makes sense to send him this year though, nothing is going.

    On TSN690 they said it won't affect them for the WJC. Russia is banned from major sporting events. And WADA does not consider the WJC as a major sporting event.

    lol Some people have no clue... Romanov is playing on the top team of the 2nd best league of the world, he is an absolute lock...

    Olofsson is a lock too...

    I honestly don't expect him to. But he will be a key piece for their team. Top pair and will most likely wear a letter on his jersey.

    I expect him to dominate though, I expect some big time leadership and for him to take charge. The points will come if they come

    Look at the left handed shots on that D! 6/8 of them shoot left! I think Harris plays RD... Doesn't he play opposite side at times?

    It's going to be Norlinder's turn to shine. Romanov will still pass the eye test I am sure. What's the Russian roster look like this year? Competitive or are they going younger?

    Yea. He played the right side a lot last year. This year, he's played mostly on the left. But he can play both sides.

    Olofsson is on a roll since being moved to wing. Seems to have unlocked his offense.

    I'm not 100% on Norlinder as that dcorps will be stacked but with the way he's been playing I think it's likely

    If they could test for blood doping, a lot of Kids from all countries , including ours, would fail.
